Taking those first steps to begin therapy can be difficult and uncomfortable. As a licensed mental health counselor I have spent the last several years helping children and adolescents, as well as their families, overcome those initial stages of resistance and discomfort and progress in therapy in a way all parties felt benefitted and accomplished. My experience with children and their families has been that through an eclectic and mutually respectful approach changes can be made to better everyone’s lives.

We are all given a blank sheet in the beginning. What we choose to put on this blank sheet determines our outcome. Through life we are shaped by our surroundings, interactions and family. But not all of us are given the tools to write our own stories. Nature created us, but nurture guides us. As a clinician, I work with my clients to help build their awareness of how their learned subconscious understandings of life have impacted how they engage, interact and understand others.

Therapy can help you and your family heal. We often want balance, happiness, acceptance and freedom to be ourselves. Together we can work through the barriers that make this seem close to impossible. I work with individuals and families who are dealing with the loss of love ones, trauma and pain that comes from trying to move past what we haven’t processed. I use therapy models and healing techniques such as healing crystals. Each session we explore what healing looks like for the individual(s) and discover coping skills that can be done when they leave this space and are confronted with triggers that may come from everyday life.

If you are someone who wants to engage in a journey of self improvement and feels stuck in their current life situation you are not alone. I work with people who want to live a different version of their life but may feel there is no way out. Sometimes people get knocked down along the journey of life. It is not your fault. You might need some guidance or assistance to help spark your own motivation to get back to living the life you want to live again. I believe everyone has the answer inside of them and they are the experts of themselves. I will facilitate change with you, not for you. You are stronger than you know.

Do you feel confused or frustrated with one or more of your relationships (including the one with yourself)? Does it seem like things used to be better and you can't figure out how they went sour? Do you feel like you'll pull your hair out trying to get others to hear you? Whether the struggle is with your relationship with yourself, a partner or spouse, a family member, or a friend, relationship snags hurt and can be difficult and messy to sort through. Maybe you wonder if things will ever be right in this relationship. You may question whether you're still valued.

We all have a desire to live a more confident, self-directed life capable of reaching our unique potential. Yet, life sometimes throws us curves. There are turning points, tragic events and problems along the way. If you or a loved one are affected by situational stressors, life changes, trauma, grief/loss, addiction or other emotional concerns, the challenges you face may seem insurmountable. And there is no easy way to avoid them. I would like to help you explore issues that keep you from moving forward and work toward achieving healing, recovery and wellness.

Now accepting new clients for EMDR therapy for late August/Sept. Offering 60 minute sessions as well as half and full-day treatment intensives. Do you ever feel like your mind won't stop racing? Like your worries are taking over and you just can't turn them off? You find yourself "on edge" much of the time-you snap at your kids or your partner, you can't focus at work or school, you have trouble falling asleep at night. It is all so overwhelming, and you can't imagine getting through the day with this enormous weight on your shoulders....you just want to feel normal again, but you can't even remember what "normal" feels like.
