Pastoral Counselor, MDiv, MACE
I share experiences with the least, the lost, the last, the left out and the left behind. I lived experiences with diverse groups and am well-traveled so I understand many cultures and ethnicities. I am a survivor of many forms of abuse including domestic violence, verbal, emotional, physical and sexual, and I believe in speaking truth to power. I am a Christian Pastoral Counseling therapist and I believe in building your faith system in order to cope with pressures that society places upon us on a daily basis. I believe that hurt people hurt people but healed people can help heal others and that is my goal in therapy.

If you are struggling in your life - if you feel unhappy in relationships, wish to feel more confident, are working through grief, loss, or trauma, or need support in coping with a new stage of life - therapy can help. It can be painful to go through such challenges alone. I aim to build a therapeutic relationship based on trust, empathy, acceptance, and compassion. Together, we can work to develop new awareness and insight, build coping strategies to deal with stress, and improve your quality of life.

Change can be difficult - but with support it becomes possible. You might be struggling with difficult thoughts like "what if my family never accepts my life choices - will they ever accept me?" Perhaps you're battling indecisiveness and fear about whether you're "good enough" to succeed, preventing you from reaching your aspirations and goals? Or maybe you feel confident and successful at times, but at other moments as if your shield for taking on the world is paper-thin?

I love this work, because people's lives are so interesting! When people run into a snag, I can help. Working with individuals, couples, & families, I look at both the immediate concerns, as well as the 'big picture' of where it fits into their lives. Session one is a consultation opportunity to meet and learn a bit about each other. Do you feel comfortable with me as you tell me what's brought you here? As I listen, I think about how I can help. If it's a good match, we can make a plan for treatment.

Please note that I am currently not able to accept new clients at this time. Therapy, at its core is about self-discovery. Through a process of curious and compassionate inquiry into the truth of our situation, we gain insights that open space to unencumber ourselves. Often, what we had initially seen as problems can dissolve altogether. I like working with people whose lives have reached an impasse where they need to generate new options to untangle their dilemma. What we need to realize is that the predicament is, ultimately, the doorway to a greater understanding and fulfillment of our lives, both inner and outer.

*Evening openings beginning July 2022* Often our deepest wounds have relational origin. Despite our best efforts to create change, we can often feel overwhelmed and defeated amidst the demands of each day. By focusing on developing a healthy relationship between therapist and client, we can create a secure space to understand your concerns more fully. Over time, the hurt and pain can be found and even transformed.

I am a Couples Counselor specializing in the area of gender communications and reducing hostile conflict. My ideal client is someone who recognizes room for improvement in their communication and they are willing to do homework, be it watching a YouTube video of Gottman or Susan Johnson, fill out papers or read articles/books. They would like to have confidence in their ability to get through conflict without hostility. They want more peace in their life and they are willing to work to get there. Some are on the verge of divorce and want to determine if they should stay together. Others want to get the spark back and learn tantra.

Reaching out for help can be difficult. I appreciate your willingness to work on issues or concerns. Is your child/family having a hard time? Does your child seem to be stuck in a problem? Are you and your child having a difficult time understanding and communicating with one another? Maybe you don't know what to do anymore. Counseling can help you, your child, and/or your family get the support you need. Being in a safe environment can help your child/family gain insight, change irrational thinking and negative behaviors, and gain skills that lead to a healthier life.

*NOT CURRENTLY TAKING NEW CLIENTS* I obtained my degree in Social Work in 2005 and have been a licensed clinical social worker since 2011. I have worked in outpatient programs, providing both individual and group based services, as well as in the psychiatric ED and inpatient hospitalization settings. Over the years I have met people with a whole range of diagnosis, but I have found my passion working with those with OCD spectrum disorders and other forms of anxiety. Real change happens when we learn that we are in charge of our lives, not anxiety.
