Anxiety has hijacked your life. You’re really good at imagining the worst case scenario. Your mind is excellent at anticipating the future, and at replaying things that have already happened. You question whether you are good enough and often feel self-conscious. You overthink everything. And your body buys in to this story – heart racing, shallow breathing, your stomach in knots. All of this worry is overwhelming. It impacts almost every aspect of your life. It prevents you from doing what you want to do, from living the way you want to live. Your life is becoming smaller and smaller … AND YOU’VE HAD ENOUGH.

Bring Balance to your Life. If you are overwhelmed and anxious by a transitional moment in your life or you are depressed and stuck with no positive changes, coming to therapy can be an important step in creating an inner peace and balance between your emotions and reason. Changing jobs, moving, a death or a birth in a family, kids changing schools, a divorce or a marriage, can cause a stressful situation leaving you unbalanced, emotional self lost and not able to function.
Dear Reader, my journey to practicing psychotherapy started over 20 years ago. I have over 15 years of experience practicing psychotherapy to individuals ages 3-100 (yes, my oldest client was 100 years old, imagine this person's experience and wisdom!). The sum of my experience has shaped me and provided me with an insight into human suffering. It has taught me great patience, compassion, empathy and understanding of our unique situations. I am looking forward to helping you overcome your difficulties in life and spreading your wings of emotional and inner freedom!

You may have found yourself stumbling over the same problem. Some are experiencing anxiety or depression. Perhaps your irritation over situations is overriding your previous levels of patience. You find yourself avoiding challenges, at times even avoiding relationships. It is time to consider a different alternative. Psychotherapy offers a reflective view of your past life experiences and their impact on you overtime. Often when analyzing the reflective experience, it explains current feelings and responses and allows you to become objective. This objectivity gives you clarity and increases your choices and control.

As someone who suffered from anxiety & trauma, I can tell you that I spent years looking for the right therapist & I just wanted results. I knew I had the potential to achieve so much more and create a life that I was excited about living, but I didn’t know where to start. I saw many therapists over the years & I was sick of just TALKING & re-living things over and over without seeing improvement. Finally, I met a therapist that changed my life. He introduced me to brainspotting, & IFS. I was skeptical at first but I was open minded & tried it out. I learned that trauma is stored in the body & that talk therapy doesn’t address that.
In Matthew 19:26 Jesus spoke these words "..with God all things are possible". It does not matter how long you have been struggling in life or how obscure the future looks; what seems impossible with man is possible with God.

As a Licensed Clinical Pastoral Counselor my therapeutic approach integrates temperament therapy with sound biblical doctrine to bring harmony within the spirit, soul, and body. (I Thessalonians 5:23).
