My professional focus is with adult women struggling with life, relationships and general stressors. Marriage, friendships and parenting are just a few examples. Are you unhappy, worried or just can't seem to find joy? When we stop taking care of ourselves and live according to other people's expectations, we lose our authentic self - we lose the ability to experience joy and wholeness. By working with a therapist in a positive and accepting environment, you can uncover your strengths and gain the tools to cope with difficult times.

It’s okay to not be ok. Asking for help is the bravest thing you can do. I am here to help! Are you feeling anxious or depressed? Maybe for you it’s anger, withdrawal or substance use. Maybe you are having relational issues or struggling to work through trauma. Maybe you are a parent really struggling to manage tough behaviors with your child. Whatever you are feeling and whatever you are going through, your feelings are valid and you are worth the effort. Sometimes our worries and problems feel so big and so dense, it’s hard to find our way through without a guide and a little extra support. I get it, life is hard!

Therapy is a sacred time dedicated to gaining self-awareness. My hope is that as you gain self-awareness you will become empowered to overcome whatever problems come your way. I am human too and have experienced difficult times in my life, hence why I became a therapist. I realize that life can become overwhelming. Sometimes we may be missing insights that may connect us to a more fulfilling life. Let's uncover those insights together!

We all want to feel connected, nurtured and loved in our relationships. When disconnection happens, we experience both emotional and physical pain; loneliness and isolation keep us distant. We get trapped in negative cycles and aren’t sure how to reconnect in love and trust. Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) can help you stop the cycle, heal the relationship pain that keeps you stuck, improve communication and bring love and connection back into your relationship. In addition to being an EFT therapist, I am also a national provider for Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) a model that treats trauma and PTSD.

My experience as a Counselor, and prior to that, as a high school teacher, taught me that we all make mistakes and harbor emotional wounds at one time or another. I have been in my own recovery for Co-Dependency for over 23 years and I am committed to helping individuals and families affected by addiction. I am also a Cancer Survivor. I am devoted to easing the painful experience of others and very importantly, their caregivers, on this and similar journeys.

When men get hurt, the first reaction is to lash out or shut down. Neither helps us to understand or process the pain. What no one tells us is that “I don’t want to talk about it” is the first step to locking ourselves into a self-made prison. It's not only destructive to ourselves, but to the people around us. In that prison, pain becomes a wound that festers and makes it difficult for us to enjoy healthy relationships. Logically, the key to getting out of that prison is talking things out. That’s what I'm here for.

Ultimately, I consider the goal of psychotherapy as empowering others to reach aspired levels of purpose.

Understanding how we feel can be an immense struggle. Sometimes it’s hard to find the energy or we feel lost in our patterns. Our day to day life might feel increasingly insurmountable. Our relationships might feel disconnected, wounding, or painful. Sometimes we just want relief. As your therapist, I will work alongside you to create an accepting and challenging space where you can find that relief through healing and growth.

I have extensive training in the leading trauma interventions, such as Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, iRest meditation and Ketamine and Cannabis Assisted Psychotherapy. I work primarily from a holistic, body centered perspective, but I am aware that every person and nervous system needs its own unique blend of therapy. Therefore, I use an eclectic blend of tools, such as Attachment, Transpersonal, Existential, and Psychodynamic to name a few. I hold a deep belief that our body and mind has the capacity to heal, so I work to provide a safe container to restore the innate wisdom of your body to heal and move through what is in the way.

Now Accepting New Clients. You feel trapped. Stuck in a seemingly endless loop of unwanted thoughts, fears, or painful memories. You feel like the only way to get relief is to avoid what hurts or do something…anything to quiet the thoughts. Your symptoms have made your life smaller and smaller until you don't even recognize who you are or who you were meant to be. You only see your symptoms. Perfectionism, OCD, anxiety, depression, substance use, and/or trauma make you feel like you are on an island alone. Let me help you to stand up to your fears, confront your shame or guilt, and reclaim your life. You can overcome.

Alcohol Use Therapists

Are there specific medications for alcohol use?

There are oral medications approved to treat alcohol use disorder—such as disulfiram, acamprosate, and naltrexone, which also comes in an injectable form. These medications do help people reduce their drinking as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings, disulfiram can make a person feel sick when they drink, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.

How do alcohol recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other patients in recovery; in outpatient programs,individuals live at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff can also include people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other tools for recovery.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for alcohol use reduce the amount of alcohol they intake. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.
