Thank you so much for visiting my page. Unfortunately at this time, I am unable to accept new clients. Counseling is not for the broken, it's for the breathing- Josh Shipp. I work with children, adolescents, couples, and families and approach therapy from a systems perspective. Therapy is client centered but a collaborative approach is used to help you meet your goals. I have created an environment that provides comfort and allows you to speak freely about your concerns while helping you to come to a place of peace and a better understanding of yourself.

The past year has been extremely difficult for so many and may have caused or exacerbated emotional health issues. It’s normal to feel stuck, lost or a need to recover lost parts of you. I can help you if you feel weighed down or drained of energy, feel depressed or have anxious thoughts, or lack enjoyment in your life like you use too. I know it can be hard to take the first step and ask for help, however, a new transition and transformation for your life is just around the corner. My professional focus is to work with individuals to help them find a greater sense of self and purpose in the midst of life's hardships.

Melinda Gates said, "Empowering women changes the world," and I couldn't agree with her more. Though I enjoy working with various populations, my passion is supporting the unique journeys of young adult women, female-identifying and/or female-bodied individuals. Women's issues are oftentimes overlooked, misinterpreted, and minimized. This is why I focus my work on empowering women to better understand their experiences, unabashedly identify their needs, and to more authentically express themselves.

Sometimes life gets complicated. Confronting and discussing your feelings requires strength. In my experience, things that are never discussed are never resolved. The decision to ask for help with your concerns is a tremendous step forward. When choosing a counselor, look for someone you can easily sit across from. Then ask yourself, do you feel heard? I have listened to hundreds of stories. I respect each one as it reflects that person's journey through life. I feel privileged to play a part in that journey. I promise to do my best to help you find your way! Thank you.

The decision to seek counseling can be a difficult one for many people, and choosing a therapist can be a daunting task. The client and therapist partnership must "work" in order for it to succeed. There must be a connection, an atmosphere of respect, support, trust, and caring - a dedication to the process by both parties. In this way, the search for understanding can bring insight, healing, growth, positive change, and a greater potential for happiness. We never know where within an individual's experience may lie the key to a breakthrough. It's a journey to well being that can begin right now.

I bring warmth, openness, empathy, intelligent understanding, and a non-judgmental, down-to-earth, supportive approach to our work in therapy. Through a relationship in which your experiences are validated and understood, I hope to help you tap into your innate strength and break the shackles of prior negative, self-defining experiences. Ultimately, the best way for you to determine if you want to be in therapy with me is for us to meet in person to see how you feel how you feel about taking this journey together and what the 'fit' might be.

I have over 20 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families from diverse backgrounds and a range of presenting issues. I have been successful in treating adolescents and adults for depression, anxiety, stress management, marital and relationship difficulties, anger management, and Attention Deficit Disorder. My philosophy is that people are often resistant to change as the change is unknown. I help them explore what that change would look and feel like and how it could improve their lives if they do decide to make those changes.

Sexual Abuse Therapists

How do therapists treat sexual abuse?

A good therapist will be nonjudgmental and possibly demonstrate active listening, repeating back what the client says to show that they have understood. These skills allow people to feel comfortable discussing their traumatic experiences openly. Some important treatment goals are to restore a sense of safety and to rebuild confidence. In addition to working one-on-one with the patient, a therapist might bring in supportive family members to assist the client.

Do you have to talk extensively about sexual abuse in therapy?

Survivors frequently find it difficult to describe what happened to them out loud. They can even still be in a state of denial if the sexual abuse occurred recently. It is important for survivors to acknowledge that what happened isn’t their fault and to challenge and reappraise any unhealthy feelings or thoughts as they arise. Art therapy and play therapy are useful non-verbal means of communication for some survivors.

How long does treatment for sexual abuse take?

Recovery from sexual abuse can be a long and difficult process. Some survivors are able to move on naturally on their own, given time, while others require the guidance of a trained therapist. Therapy needs vary and can range from a few sessions to months or even years. Healing from sexual abuse takes time, and everyone’s journey will look a little different.

Can trauma symptoms caused by sexual abuse come back after treatment?

As occurs in many cases of trauma, survivors of sexual abuse may experience PTSD-like symptoms long after the abuse has ceased or after an initial round of treatment has occurred. In such a case, there is evidence that prolonged exposure therapy is a useful treatment for survivors, and may be more efficacious than supportive counseling alone. While triggers may continue to cause distress, the idea is that, with time and repeated exposure, their power will fade, allowing survivors to move on with their lives.
