Let's face it. To seek personal mental help presents to be very challenging. It takes a lot of courage to address deep rooted issues and complex life situations. The reality is that many don't know where to begin. Is that you? Some enter therapy to address major life changes, losses, difficult relationships, even substance abuse. Others may seek therapy to help manage mental health conditions. Some may have personally identified life goals that they want to achieve but need a guide on their road map to success.

Engaging in therapy is a vulnerable and sometimes scary process. I specialize in working with couples either in a committed relationship or marriage. Working on relationships I often find the thing that brings couples together initially, gets lost after the "honeymoon" period is over. It is easy to get complacent with all of life's stressors. Being a strength-based therapist, I believe that anything is possible if both people are willing to work. And to be honest, therapy is work! I view my clients as the experts in their life and work together with them to create positive change.

Working through family relationship challenges with spouse, parents, young or adult children, siblings or other category of family? Those are the relationships that are viewed by society as loving, healthy and positive, yet many of those relationships are not. I can help you sort through the relationship and work together to figure out the best way forward.

"History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived; however, if faced with courage, need not be lived again". Facing pain and brokenness of the deepest kind requires amazing strength and courage! Counseling is a unique opportunity to connect w/ the overwhelming issues that can block one's most earnest efforts to "do it differently this time". I'd consider it an honor to work with you as you come to understand your story--whether anxiety, discouragement, addictions, relationships. I look forward to collaborating with you in this challenging, yet rewarding work, as you move toward freedom from any concern that holds you back.

Sometimes our problems and pain are too much for us to manage on our own. I can help people understand their relationships with others and manage the challenges in their lives. My clients find me easy to talk to: I believe I know when to be quiet and when people need my help to talk about their suffering and struggles. Together my clients and I identify the troublesome patterns in their relationships - professional and personal - and figure out how to change those patterns. Sometimes I am there just to be with people as they acknowledge and bear what cannot be changed.

When things aren't going well or when we feel disconnected from others, we begin to feel anxious and depressed. When we feel disconnected from our own selves, our passions, our desires--in order to make other people happy or to keep them close--it can have the same result. If you're feeling uncertain about what is going on with you, I'm here to help. One of the first things we will do together is discover a clear picture of how you got here so we know where we're going in therapy.

In helping children, teens, and their families, I employ a combination of compassion, creativity, understanding, and humor with clinically proven treatment methods. During my 15+ years of experience I have found that a good collaborative therapeutic relationship combined with skill-based strategies and techniques results in positive and lasting changes. I typically begin treatment with a thorough assessment and treatment plan. Treatment incorporates both parent and child interventions. I routinely communicate with pediatricians, teachers and school personnel to assist in resolving the issues of children and teens, with parental permission.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
