Sometimes we can feel stress and lost with relationships, our families, and ourselves. We all need help. Someone to listen to up. You might wish you could improve your sex life in your romantic relationships, or change your family and relationships interactions. Maybe you want to live a calm and peaceful life and overcome past traumas that don't let you move on. Replaying your history over and over, wishing things were different. It might be the way you think and treat yourself that brought you here. Maybe you want to discover more about yourself and never knew how.

Making the choice to seek help can be extremely challenging and anxiety producing. Over the past 30 years, I have been committed and dedicated to helping individuals find positive ways to cope with a variety of stressors. We each experience life a little differently, and something that seems easy to handle for one person may be so difficult for another. Building a relationship is critical along with empowering you to dictate the areas that are most important for your growth and wellness. I strive to develop a nonjudgmental environment to help you best articulate how you are truly feeling.

Are you having a hard time relating to your partner? Are you communicating but it seems as if nothing is changing? Do you desire better communication or want to enhance intimacy? Are you stressed about things continually happening in your life? Does dealing with things seem to be just too hard to do? Would you like to begin to feel as if you have some sense of control again? I understand that dealing with various life events, relationships, traumas, and even one’s own self can be overwhelming. These (seemingly minor) events can contribute to emotional issues that affect one’s health and general well-being. *New clients-June 2021

Counseling is a valuable investment in you. People seek it out for different reasons. Whatever your situation, I’ll be pleased to meet you and sort out the best ways I can support you in achieving your goals. My focus as a counselor is person-centered, trauma- informed and strengths-based. Those are social work terms that mean I want to understand you and your unique story to help you use and build on strengths you might not even know you already have so you can have the life you want. The types of counseling I have special training in can be used to help in a variety of situations. Let’s get together to see what we can figure out.

I am seeking individual clients who are looking to address sex and sexuality-related concerns. I provide a non-judgmental, sex-positive environment in which my clients and I can seek deeper understanding of their sexuality and barriers to experiencing a sense of sexual wholeness. There are few spaces and relationships in our lives in which we can speak openly, neutrally, and specifically about sex. My mission is to be that trusted, safe-feeling confidant with whom you can talk freely about sex-related issues and to be a reliable educator on the matters of sex and sexuality.

I am a licensed psychologist with over 20 years of experience with teens and adults. I have worked with patients to be more focused and efficient and unlock more of their minds' potential. At times, this has included assessment and diagnosis of ADHD. Some of my patients avoided others due to social anxiety, or struggled with free-floating anxious thoughts of any type. A majority of these patients found ways to live and interact with others in ways they had only dreamed of. Through mindful acceptance, patients have been able to recruit their own power for self-healing and enjoy a life based on gratitude and being of help to others.

What type of Erie County 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 Erie County?
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.
