I take an eclectic approach to counseling and utilize Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, CBT, Mindfulness , and EMDR to help identify barriers to good mental health.
It is my passion to reach clients who have given up hope that they can change. If you are someone who has unsuccessfully sought counseling (or has never tried counseling) for anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, bad relationships, or trauma/PTSD, I would love to have the opportunity to work with you! I promise you a comfortable, non-judgmental space where you can process through your pain and can come out the other side being changed in ways you never thought possible. It would be a privilege to walk on that journey with you!

I use CBT, DBT, and Solution Focused work, using mindfulness , breathing techniques, visualization, and goal setting to help clients reach their short and long-term goals.
My ideal client is someone who comes to therapy in a time of need. They might be experiencing anxiety due to life changes and transitions or they might be experiencing symptoms of anxiety for the first time and be concerned as to where the anxiety came from. The client might be processing loss or grief from a loved one or past friendships and or relationships. My ideal client will have needs such as needing to identify coping skills to get through life stressors, assistance with reaching goals. As a therapist I would be able to provide the client with a objective perspective to bounce their ideas and situations off of.

I practice with a trauma-informed approach and a cognitive behavioral focus, as well as choice theory, mindfulness and other specific methods we can discuss further.
Thanks for visiting this profile - indeed there are quite a few therapists to sift through when trying to find a good match! I've been a practicing therapist since 2009, and I enjoy counseling adolescents, adults, families and couples. I find that most people are searching for a therapist because they want to be happier. Perhaps this manifests through symptoms of worry or sadness, broken relationships, or simply feeling stuck or struggling to overcome something. Most of us want to be happier or for things in life to be better, and I feel honored to help my clients strive to achieve this. I truly believe it is possible.

Art making in itself can promote mindfulness and a cathartic experience.
You may not completely understand what is going on! The importance of a trusting therapeutic rapport is key in overcoming challenges that have led you to get help. I have practiced as an art therapist and chemical dependency counselor for over 20 years. I have experience working with all ages and incorporate art-making when appropriate to encourage insight and personal growth. Art therapy can help cope with anxiety, depression, body image, self-esteem, grief/loss, family/relationship strain, pain related to chronic medical conditions among other mental health challenges.

Times of chaos, confusion, and challenge are opportunities for a shift in perspective and meaningful, long-lasting change. We don't often have a choice about challenging circumstances but we do get to choose how we respond and whether or not we grow stronger from the experience! Using a blend of traditional "talk therapy" and alternative therapies (such as mindfulness , somatic awareness, and creative expression) we collaborate for my clients' restoration of their natural wellness in mind, body, and spirit. I can help you become your best self!

With over 30 years experience in community agency and private practice, I serve clients from wide ranging backgrounds, with an extensive range of presenting issues. I view "problem" behaviors in a non-pathologizing way: we're all trying our best, using self-protective approaches to life's challenges that we've developed along the way, some of which may no longer serve us well. I use a humanistic, mindfulness -based approach in a safe, accepting and confidential environment. With every client who enters my office, I am honored and inspired by the uniqueness of each individual as well as the commonality of our shared human experience

While I have a strong focus on cognitive-behavioral therapy, I also incorporate elements of mindfulness and solution-focused therapy to help you to make the changes you want to see.
Life is full of good times, hard times, curveballs, and changes. Even when things seem to be going well, it can be difficult to enjoy it when the stress and pressure we place on ourselves tells us that we aren't measuring up. Therapy can be a great way to better understand ourselves and learn new ways to cope with those changes and feelings. Whether you are looking to learn new skills and strategies, process past experiences, or just find a safe place to vent and talk through the thoughts that are weighing on you, I'm here to walk with you on that journey.

I believe in incorporating a mindfulness component to my work with others in an effort to foster greater self-awareness and personal growth.
Each day it seems that life presents a new challenge, often causing us to question certain decisions that we have made or to consider new paths that we would like to explore. My goal is to gain a clear picture of each individual's needs, explore new and more effective ways of problem solving, and help each individual develop greater insight and growth. I believe the relational component of therapy is essential and serves at the foundation for establishing trust, compassion, empathy, and respect. I have expertise in working with individuals of all ages: children, adolescents, adults and families.

In my practice, I utilize talk therapy, ACT, EMDR, mindfulness , relaxation training, active listening, empathy, guided imagery, narrative reprocessing, and other helpful tools that would best fit my client’s needs.
Anxiety and negative beliefs about one's self are areas of focus that I gravitate toward. These can come from many avenues, like relationships, family issues, trauma, and etc. I also hold spirituality and faith-based issues in hand for those in need. I consider working with clients to be a high privilege! I work with college students and adults, and work to provide secure spaces for clients to be vulnerable and allow for deep change. I not only look for ways to help you cope, but to understand why and where these issues originate from. If this resonates with you, I would love to help!

Through IFS and EMDR, as well as mindfulness techniques and unconditional support, I hope to help my clients develop more self-compassion, inner peace, and healthy coping skills.
I love people's stories and I see my role in the therapeutic relationship as a tremendous privilege. I want to help you understand the behaviors and thought patterns that bring you to therapy, but my approach is then to go deeper. Together, we can discover the underlying root cause of your concerns. So many of us are carrying around past trauma that we don't realize is affecting how we operate in the world today.

I am trained in in the areas of somatic therapy and the contextual and behavioral sciences including mindfulness , body-oriented trauma resolution, embodied boundaries and communication, the experiential arts, and transpersonal-based modalities.
Change, although inevitable, can be difficult and feel ruthless especially when life takes a turn you don't expect. We can start feeling lost, alone and out of touch with ourselves and those around us. Each of us are vulnerable to the pain, grief and the uncertainty of the human condition. In this way, I believe we can each benefit from a safe and non-judgmental space that allows us to put our guard down and encourages us to learn, be flexible and rest more fully into the natural process of simply being ourselves and listening to our own wounds.
