Each day we have a chance to strive to live a life that is authentic and genuine, a life that represents and reflects who we are as people. Oftentimes, that authentic and genuine person becomes derailed and buried beneath the weight of life stressors. These stressors present in the form of anxiety, depression, trauma, interpersonal conflicts, relationship conflicts, grief/loss, loss of meaning/purpose, and beyond. Sometimes the assistance of a helping hand, an open ear, and an attuned mind is all that's needed to help us return to living as our authentic selves.

I help people overcome stress and anxiety related to life transitions/changes. Feeling excessively anxious and dealing with panic attacks creates self-doubt, and leads to being unable to move forward with our dreams and intentions. I too struggled with anxiety and panic attacks resulting in wasted time and missed opportunities. I will teach you the same tools and strategies that worked for me and the many clients I have helped over the years.

At some point, we all need help navigating life issues such as relationship struggles, grief and loss, parenting stress, anxiety, workplace challenges, trauma, and self-esteem. None of us can handle life's challenges alone. For times when it is too much, counseling is a process where we work together to promote acceptance and change. As a professional in the field for 20 years I have experience working with couples and individuals. I like to understand my client's worldview and then work with them to make life a little (or a lot) better. Life can be really hard and it is helpful to know you are not alone.

I believe that everyone has inner strengths and abilities that are at times overshadowed by life circumstances and physical/mental health/spiritual struggles. With caring support and encouragement individuals can regain perspective, recognize and use their strengths, and grow further in their ability to manage symptoms and life stressors allowing them to overcome barriers to their wellness. Having 35 years of experience in the mental health field, I've dealt with a variety of issues primarily in the areas related to depression, anxiety, trauma/abuse, emotional regulation and grief/loss.

Are you feeling emotional, struggle to get to sleep, and lack the motivation to engage in activities you used to love? Over one out of five adults struggle with mental health symptoms and at least half of them do not receive support due to not having access to this type of help or believing they will never feel better. These symptoms often occur with life adjustments including loss of loved ones, loss of jobs, medical issues, and changing responsibilities at home, work, and school. When symptoms interfere with your quality of life, it’s time to get some support!

Do you feel like everything on the outside is "perfect" but you are struggling on the inside? Does life seem great "on paper" but you aren't happy? Do you feel like all your friends are happy and you're a mess? These feelings are more common than you think and can come from all kinds of sources - family problems, transition/change, and just an overall uncertainty of who you are and what you want -including questions about sexuality and gender. Life doesn't come with a handbook. But the good news is that I don't think we need one!

Online Therapists

Is online therapy as effective as in-person?

Numerous studies suggest that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. However, further research is needed to determine if online therapy provides the same benefits across all client populations. Individuals with severe mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those who may benefit from in-person check-ins, like those with eating disorders, may not experience the same level of benefit from online therapy. Nonetheless, the success of online therapy, much like in-person therapy, often hinges on the quality of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client rather than the specific modality of therapy used.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of therapy conducted online?

One of the main advantages of online therapy is its convenience for both clients and therapists. It also allows clients who require specialized therapy to access a wider range of professionals than they could with only in-person sessions. Additionally, online therapy may be a more affordable option in some cases and often offers the same insurance benefits as in-person therapy. However, online therapy may not be suitable for everyone, especially those who value face-to-face interaction with a therapist. Therapists may find it more challenging to assess clients accurately in an online setting due to reduced nonverbal cues on camera. There is also the increased risk that disruptions caused by external factors, such as technology malfunctions, can hinder the therapy session. For these reasons, many therapists offer a "hybrid" therapeutic approach, alternating between seeing clients in-person and online.

Is online therapy suitable for children and adolescents?

Just like with adults, the accessibility and convenience of online therapy can greatly benefit children and adolescents. In fact, children and adolescents may be more accustomed to navigating online platforms than older adults, making online sessions feel more natural for them. Teens might also be interested in using additional online tools, such as therapist-recommended apps, as an adjunct to online therapy sessions. Apps for developing CBT skills, practicing mindfulness exercises, or tracking thoughts and moods can be helpful for teens receiving therapy. However, it's important to note that not all therapeutic modalities are well-suited to online therapy, especially those used with younger children. For example, play therapy, which helps younger children express their emotions, often requires in-person sessions to be fully effective.

Can I receive prescriptions and medication management with online therapy?

The ability for psychiatrists to prescribe medications through online therapy varies based on the medication and the states where the medical professional and client are located. While many prescribing regulations were relaxed during the COVID-19 pandemic, some states still enforce rules, especially concerning controlled substances, which may mandate an in-person visit before prescribing. Generally, however, medical professionals can prescribe non-controlled substances through online therapy sessions just as they do during in-person sessions.
