You might feel overwhelmed by demands and difficult emotions. Perhaps you frequently worry or have little motivation to participate fully in life. Maybe you struggle with body image and maintaining a healthy relationship with food. It takes strength and courage to ask for help and sometimes the hardest thing is taking the first step in seeking support. Therapy can help you overcome these difficulties by working through painful emotions and experiences, developing coping skills, and building a fulfilling and meaningful life.

You may be seeking therapy for any of many reasons. Perhaps following a difficult life experience that seems to have changed things, perhaps for long-standing difficulties managing emotions, or problems that interfere with relationships or with work, or because of wanting to reach a goal in your life that you haven't been able to reach. What you are seeking is someone who can listen and understand.

Change is uncomfortable; not feeling in control is the worst... It is not easy adapting to change that is out of your control. As the world is changing, it may feel like we don't have a grasp of our lives. Spending time with ourselves, we might learn more about what we like, and often times - what we don't like. I've been there, and I want to be there for you through this time. Sometimes, all we need is a person to hear us without judgment, and provide us with insight and the truth to our concerns. I am happy to provide that with you.

I am a firm believer that as humans, we grow in connection. Therapy can be a place where growth and healing can begin. I also believe that we are all bound to experience difficulty and pain throughout our lives. Throughout these ups and downs, I hope to come alongside you and provide a sense of acceptance, authenticity, and emotional safety. Therapy is an active process - in order for it to work, you must be willing to be vulnerable and experience some discomfort as you are ready. It is in these times that I am committed to connect with you and help you navigate life's difficulties in a non-judgmental manner.

Life is no easy task. It can knock us around causing regrets and unwanted feelings. Emotional pain can be elusive, idling for years as the culprit of failed partnerships, loneliness, underachievement, despair, and fear. Mental pain does not send us to the emergency room for stitches but can leave us feeling at war with ourselves. When left unattended this pain can lead to debilitating mood disorders and maladaptive coping strategies. As a partner of Lakewood Counseling, I am here to help you tend to your mental health, restore your inner strength and reclaim control over the life that you deserve.

Hope starts here. Are you feeling sad or stressed? Do you experience mood swings but don't really know why? Maybe you've been withdrawing from family, friends, or activities that used to breathe light into your life. If you have been feeling depressed, have found yourself more angry or hostile than normal, or suffer from low energy or problems sleeping, you may have an untreated mental health issue. Mental health impacts your way of thinking, relating to others, and overall quality of life. Many issues have been identified and defined including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress (PTSD), etc. You don't have to suffer anymore.

My approach to therapy is grounded in the belief that people have an innate dignity and desire to seek value and meaning in life. I work with people to develop an awareness of their personal value and strengths and to use them to live more fulfilling lives. As part of the process, I strive to be fully present during session and a companion on the journey. I aim to create an environment where people can engage in honest self-reflection, a process that guides decisions and helps toward self-healing.

I assist those in need. My clients are people who are suffering, who need someone to listen to their troubles and provide outs - both temporary and permanent - for that suffering. My clientele are anxious, depressed, addicted, traumatized, distracted, obsessed, hopeless, suicidal, purposeless, and/or barely coping with life. My hope and my goal is to help others find their own solutions to problems, because long-lasting change begins and ends within oneself.

What type of Lakewood 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Lakewood?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
