My counseling style is warm, empathetic, integrative, and person-centered. I believe that a therapeutic relationship should be a collaborative one in which you and I work together to discover creative strategies, solutions and, even humorous insights to help you reach your goals. My role is to be there to guide you, encourage you, maybe even challenge you if I feel you are unknowingly allowing obstacles to stand in your way. I draw on multiple treatment modalities to guide clients in identifying strengths and developing treatment plans that accomplish their goals.

You’re feeling overwhelmed and anxious all the time. It’s leaving you sad, unmotivated, without any energy, and it is sapping all the confidence out of you. And you’re going crazy from all the overthinking about your problems the whole day. Maybe some even think you are confident and successful, but you know that deep down you are insecure, indecisive, and feel like an imposter and if people knew you, you doubt that they would still like you or respect you. It seems like the difficulties in your life and past traumas have overtaken you and are holding you back.

My ideal client is someone who is grappling with substance use or addiction and is seeking a path to healing and positive change. I understand that individuals facing addiction often carry a heavy emotional burden and require a supportive and non-judgmental environment to navigate the complexities of their journey. My clients typically aspire to achieve sobriety, regain control of their lives, and foster healthier relationships. They seek personal growth, self-discovery, and a renewed sense of purpose. I recognize the importance of addressing the holistic well-being of the clients and meet all concerns with empathy and respect.

It’s hard to remember the last time you woke up feeling rested. When you actually do sleep, you wish that you hadn’t . The nightmares that ensue, reminding you of the horror you so desperately want to escape from, come back to haunt you at night. The daytime is no reprieve either, those flashbacks are the worst of them all. The expression of “being caught between a rock and a hard place” starts to take on a whole new dimension.

Are you feeling that your life is not as wonderful as you thought it would be? Struggling to be a good wife and mother when you can barely catch your breath and hold yourself up. You struggle with grief after divorce or loss of a loved one. You might have had a difficult childhood during which your necessary and adaptive responses can bring suffering in the present. There is the possibility of remarrying and raising a larger family. You feel overwhelmed and unhappy and want others to respond to you in a more positive way. It’s hard to feel confident being a mother when you didn’t have the right role model growing up.

From the outside, your life looks wonderful. But somehow, it doesn’t feel wonderful at all. Everything in your life seems fine except for you. You are walled off from your feelings. It’s hard to connect to yourself and even harder to connect to other people. When asked what you want or what you feel, you have no idea. At times, you feel a deep emptiness, as if you’re hollow inside. When in a crowd, you feel lonelier than you do when you're by yourself. When things go wrong, you blame yourself so harshly that it’s downright mean.

Are there aspects of your life that you are unhappy with? Are you feeling anxious, struggling to follow your dreams or having difficulties in your relationships with others? Are you struggling with the impact of past traumatic experiences? Are you dealing with chronic pain? If so, therapy can be helpful to you! My approach centers on fostering connection and healing. I prioritize a trauma-informed perspective, shifting the question from 'what's wrong with you?' to 'what happened to you?'. This approach is particularly empowering for trauma survivors, who may have received multiple diagnoses in the past.
