Are you frequently finding yourself overwhelmed? Are you struggling to adjust after significant events? Do you find that you are reacting differently than as you would like to in situations? When you reflect on the support you have been given was it found to be less than helpful for you? Are you feeling lost in finding the right support and often leaving drained? If any of this resonates, I am the therapist for you. As your therapist we navigate in creating resiliencies and transforming your skills for living well. I demonstrate to parents and caregivers how to support their children through play, communicating, & personal music.
I work primarily with family systems and children/adolescents. I have significant experience with impulsivity/poor choices, entitlement, self-worth, divorce (children and adults) and sexual abuse/assault. There are several therapists in our group with varied specialties. Choosing a therapist can be overwhelming. The therapeutic relationship is key to your success. Find the one the fits you best. Give us a call.
One of the most important issues in a marriage is sexuality. Some people feel their sexual relationship could be better, others think if they didn't have to have sex again in their lifetime that would be fine with them. If you are dealing with some of these issues, I can help.
I specialize in working with individuals and couples with lack of sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, female orgasmic disorder, premature ejaculation, and sexual addiction issues.
Today is the day to begin taking steps toward a satisfying and fulfilling sex life.
We receive constant messages that if you are not feeling happy something is wrong. But is this fair? Over 50% of us will suffer with a mental health condition in our lifetime! This suggests suffering is not pathological, but rather a universal experience. The fact you are human guarantees you will experience pain. Sadly, sometimes our well-intended efforts to avoid pain can unintentionally lead to more suffering. Across time we can lose touch with what matters to us most and our quality of life goes down. We can become stuck in an unnecessary battle with ourselves, and all the while life continues to go by.
I feel a lively, genuine therapeutic relationship can facilitate the process of healing and self-discovery. I respect all forms of diversity and the creative potential within us all. Most of my practice is composed of individuals who identify as living on the 'fringe' (outside of the gender binary and heteronormativity). I work well with creative types and naturey folks. I am a climate aware/collapse aware therapist and enjoy working with people who want to face their feelings about the climate crisis and explore adaptations to our current predicament.
Life is full of challenges and it always helps to have someone on your team. Counseling can help your process and learn skills. It will make your journey easier. As a team, we work together to find the right goals and treatment that will work for you.
I specialize in working with adolescents and adults, but am open to working with all age groups. My goal is to help individuals healthily cope with life obstacles such as anxiety, depression, trauma, self esteem, and addiction issues, while increasing self esteem and self awareness in order live a healthy, and genuinely happy life.
It is important to have a warm, safe place to discuss personal issues; a place where you can let your guard down and be accepted. Regardless of your stage of life, or the situation, your pain is real and can impact your life in many different ways. When faced with difficulties in your personal or work relationships, struggles with parenting, or any life transition, I believe that healthy and positive growth can result from a compassionate therapeutic relationship.
I believe that therapy is a chance to grow and develop holistically in an environment where every individual is honored and respected. I am trained in community counseling and marriage & family therapy, with specialized training in family systems conceptualizations.
I have worked with with individuals ranging across the lifespan, as well as college students, and marital/premarital couples. I work with a variety of issues including, depression, anxiety, forgiveness work, life transitions and struggles, marital discourse, etc.
I assess each individual and family holistically, looking at the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual influences.
Do you need to manage your stress more effectively? Is your condition exacerbated by stress? Do you wish to feel better? Perhaps feel calmer, increase your ability to pay attention or make better choices? I may be able to help.
Our behaviors are a direct result of the thoughts we have about our feelings. When we don't understand those feelings, our behaviors might not make sense to us. 17 years of working with adolescents in an educational setting gives me a unique perspective when it comes to therapy. I love working with families and adults alike to help them feel better about themselves and create lasting connections. Connection and relationships are what make humans unique and beautiful. Struggles with relationships are often an indication of struggles within oneself. Counseling is an opportunity to work on oneself, heal, so thriving is possible.
