I focus on the treatment of trauma , ADHD, mood disorders (including depression and anxiety), social anxiety, marriage and family issues, parenting, and grief/loss.
I know when looking for counseling the process can seem daunting. You have to worry about specializations, openings, the time it will take to get to and from the appointment, not to mention the appointment itself. At New Heights we focus on making the process as easy as possible, from helping connect you to the best clinician within the practice to providing the most advanced treatment options we can. You matter and we want to help you achieve not just your mental health goals but making joy a part of your life.

I specialize in trauma -focused therapy, with extensive training in somatic and mindfulness-based approaches, EMDR therapy, and trauma -focused cognitive behavioral therapy.
If you've decided to take the brave step to reach out for support, I view it as my mission to create a safe space so we can get to the hard work of supporting your growth and healing. I work with people who've experienced trauma , depression, anxiety, life transitions, and grief/loss. I strive to create a supportive space where you can safely bring your most difficult and painful experiences, while also experiencing the joy of reconnecting with who you really are, underneath the stress and old, unhelpful ways of coping. When we feel safe and accepted, we can begin the process of shedding what is no longer working for us anymore.

After years of building a specialty in trauma and PTSD work, I was certified as a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional by IATP.
I began practicing in 2004, seeing children and teens, and working with their parents. Over the years I have broadened my scope of practice to include working with adults and couples as well. An initial focus on young clients' issues like ADHD, depression, anxiety, and behavioral issues like ODD and CD, has grown into addressing a wider number of issues including anxiety disorders (including phobias, PTSD , etc.), marital issues, depression in adults, and so on.

I utilize concepts from both CBT and DBT and also have extensive training working with clients processing trauma .
I am passionate about helping clients learn to love themselves in their current space. Life is hard and unpredictable and all of us come to points in our life where we need some extra help. Maybe you are finding yourself at a crossroad in life and are struggling to identify where to turn. Maybe you are wrestling with ongoing depression and anxiety that is beginning to feel debilitating. Maybe you are grieving the loss of a loved one, a relationship, a dream, or an old way of thinking. Wherever you are, if you have found yourself here, you have identified that you need support and I would love to meet you in that space.

I am trained in EMDR which is a researched-based technique used to reprocess trauma , and in its place instill resiliency.
We face many challenges throughout our lives. These challenges can either positively or negatively impact how we navigate our life journey. Either way, the challenges that we face can influence our emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. I believe that it is important to come alongside clients on the journey to healing and self-awareness so that they can better navigate the challenges of life.

I have specialized training in evidence-based interventions that focus on helping people heal from trauma , stress, and difficult life experiences.
Coming to therapy can be a difficult choice. You’re struggling to manage everything life’s thrown at you, and you need some help. We all go through hard times, some worse than others, and the lingering effects of past experiences can make us feel stuck. When we experience trauma , not only are we often left with feelings of anxiety and depression, but it can also change the way our brains perceive the world around us. Let’s work together to find ways to break through those barriers, so you can let go of the things that have been holding you back and make the most out of life.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
