Let's Build Hope! I strive to create a validating, non-judgmental environment to teach you skills to manage anxiety, overwhelming emotions, improve relationships, and modify behaviors. You can develop the healthy life you desire. Humans experience emotions! Sometimes we may think there is a right way and a wrong way to feel and distress means, we are feeling the wrong way. That is a ton of pressure! Sometimes, our emotions become distressing. Sometimes we worry. Few are taught to manage emotions and anxiety effectively and distress can lead to self-blame, defeated feelings, strained relationships, self-harm, and more. I can help!

**NOW ACCEPTING AETNA INSURANCE. It's so hard on our bodies and minds to be pregnant and deliver yet we're expected to carry on with our lives like usual. People that don't experience the physical complications and postpartum mood and anxiety disorders just can't relate. Talking about our "stuff" is uncomfortable because we often feel shame or guilt because we think we should be grateful. But it's unlike any other journey we wilI face. Sharing our bodies with another human is hard, being a new mom is hard, and this big change is hard! You are not alone.

Individuals seek therapy for many issues. I have been afforded the opportunity to work alongside people that want help in managing Anxiety, Depression, Self-Esteem barriers and daily stress. Often times these issues are masked by deep rooted trauma, grief and abuse. Individuals need encouragement, support, feeling that they are heard and validation while on their journey to healing.

I have learned that many times it is good to admit that life can often be difficult and painful. I have also learned that these challenges can be overwhelming and sometimes we need someone to sit with us in our pain without making judgments or assumptions. I have nearly 15 years of experience working in both home-based and outpatient settings with young adults, adolescents, and children and I am passionate about partnering with clients who struggle with poor relationships, behavioral issues, emotional difficulties, and concerns over Christian faith and spirituality.

Whether dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, or interpersonal turmoil my goal is to help place you firmly in the driver’s seat of your own life. I approach therapy as a collaborative effort and my aim is to assist each individual in more fully becoming the person that they would like to be. Oftentimes this process involves honesty, courage, persistence, and a willingness to let go of that which no longer serves our best interest. It is my privilege to walk beside you as you navigate this terrain in the hope of a better tomorrow.

The decision to begin therapy is a very challenging decision to make. It can also be very scary, which can cause us to remain frozen between the fear of change and the fear of staying the same. I view psychotherapy as an opportunity to face the space between who you are and who you want to be. I offer a laid-back approach to therapy utilizing humor, accountability, warmth, and empathy. In collaborating closely with clients, I work to help them understand themselves better and use that understanding to effect positive change in their lives.

Trauma can be understood as any extraordinarily stressful experience in life that has a lasting negative impact on someone. People who have suffered from PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Traumatic Events, Relationship Devastation, Emotional Neglect, Job Loss, and/or loss of a loved one often lost faith in counseling because regular talk therapy may have helped somewhat, but they didn’t actually “feel” (physically) better. Yet many symptoms and difficulties still plagued a person, even if they were “thinking right” about a past incident and trying to “move on.” It's time for a new approach. Trauma-Informed Interventions go beyond talk.
