Life is hard! This is a universal truth. Having a safe place to sit with your thoughts and feelings can be healing. This might mean shining a light on your present circumstances, or taking a glimpse into the past. Most often, it is a combination of both; for insight that leads to healing and change.

When we experience difficult emotions, it can be tempting to avoid these feelings. This results in disconnection with ourselves, because our feelings are there to tell us something; a boundary has been crossed, or maybe we have made a decision that is incongruent with our values. Old scripts we learned in childhood may be causing us guilt and shame, preventing us from growing into our authentic selves. This emotional friction may impact our relationships, careers, or physical health. We may have turned to substance use. Or maybe we have spun our wheels so long that now we are stuck in ruts we can’t see our way out of.

As humans, we sometimes find ourselves stuck. We might feel stuck in painful circumstances, in old and outdated patterns of behaviors, or with narratives that just don't feel true to us anymore. This is part of what it means to be human and yet being human also implies an innate potential for evolution and growth. Together, from a place of centeredness, I work with my clients to get in touch with the present moment, determine what really, truly matters to them, and identify how to move forward in life in a meaningful and intentional way.

I provide therapy to people struggling with depression, anxiety, grief/loss, PTSD, life transitions, ADHD, perinatal and postpartum depression. I also help clients who need help with managing conflict, maintaining boundaries, and improving communication skills. If you are going through a divorce, I can assist with the grief process. Therapy is a collaborative process that can only be experienced in a safe and trusting relationship, so finding the "right fit" therapist is crucial to the success of therapy.

I have spent the bulk of my career helping children and their families to deal with a broad range of issues in healthy ways and to realize that their pasts do not have to limit their futures. Over the last 20 years, I have enjoyed my practice with adolescents and adults with varying concerns, particularly trauma, depression, and anxiety. From years of working with high risk youth and adolescents, I am also very familiar with the juvenile justice system and with oppositional defiant or conduct disordered adolescents.

What type of Wilmington mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Wilmington?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
