Greetings. I am currently performing psychological evaluations and continuing to work with existing therapy clients. Unfortunately, I am not taking on any new therapy clients at this time. If you have seen me for therapy in the past and would like to resume, please call. Also, if you're interested in a psychological evaluation for the Department of Human Services, the courts, or for other entities, please call. I wish you the best in your search.
Newberg Counseling & Wellness is here for you. Our team of experienced, licensed therapists works with children, teens, parents, families, marriage, couples, men’s and women’s issues, and adults for a range of concerns: depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, and people in seasons of change of all kinds.
I AM CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. "Contacting a therapist for the first time can be uncomfortable regardless of the challenges you may be facing. I am here to help!! " I specialize in working with couples, families and individuals, in addition to working with teens and adolescents. I believe the foundation of therapy is to develop a safe and trusting relationship. Because each client is unique and has their own story, I strive to understand my clients in the context of their psychological, physical and spiritual background. Together we will create a treatment plan that is tailored to meet your needs, hopes and desired goals.
At this time I am only providing psychotherapy and only via telehealth (online). I typically see people who are distressed about a relationship, family dynamics, or who experience depression, anxiety, anger, stress, ongoing relationship difficulties, personality problems or self-concept problems. I have a particular interest in working with men regarding common concerns such as work-life balance, stress, emotional difficulties, relationships, family of origin issues, fatherhood, and issues around masculinity.
***CURRENTLY ACCEPTING CLIENTS FOR THURSDAY APPOINTMENT TIMES*** With a previous career in health and wellness and over 10 years working in the mental health field, I bring a wide range of experience in crisis management, therapy, and behavioral health. I work with folks from all ages suffering from depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, suicidal ideation... I consider it a tremendous honor to provide therapy and support to each of my clients as they navigate significant life challenges.
Life is a beautiful gift that comes with its share of pain and challenge. We sometimes need people to bear witness to our experiences and help us find our way forward in times of difficulty. I work with clients facing depression, anxiety, grief, or uncertainty and looking for some help in their journey. I'm also comfortable working with people of faith as they consider how their beliefs and doubts may relate to mental and emotional health.
Now accepting clients! I work with adults, couples, and children (play therapy) struggling with trauma, grief, anxiety, depression and more. Reaching out for support can feel daunting and it takes bravery to step out into the unknown. As a graduate level intern, I offer you a space of warmth and safety. Together, we will explore your inner strengths, develop skills, and forge meaningful connections as we navigate the terrain of your constantly changing life. I will collaborate with you in a non-directive, non-judgmental, and compassionate manner.
Finding a skilled therapist to assist you with coping, healing, and growth can be difficult. Here are some details about me and my practice to aid you in your search. My clients have described my practice as a safe place to address issues. They have also provided feedback that I am both caring and competent in helping people face and address the issues they bring into therapy.
My approach to counseling is to walk alongside you in your journey towards wellness. My main goal is to assist you in developing insight, discovering who you want to be, as well as change the behaviors that keep you from reaching your goals. I provide guidance and understanding but most importantly I provide a safe trustworthy and loving environment.
*I am not currently accepting new clients at this time*. I specialize in working with clients who are dealing with issues related to eating disorders, anxiety, and, self-esteem. I’m here as a resource to work alongside you in your journey towards growth, discovery, hope, and healing.
I work with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, PTSD, trauma, stress, spiritual issues, among other challenges. Often, what clients need first is to know that they are not broken, damaged or abnormal. Thoughts and feelings are normal, your relationship to them makes all the difference. We all experience difficult and challenging times in life, and learning how to live with the painful thoughts and feelings that emerge is what therapy is designed to help you with. Helping you emerge from your difficult life circumstances toward a more fulfilling life will be a major goal in the counseling process.
"I believe as children, adults, and families grow and go through developmental stages, crisis can occur that lead them to the point of needing some extra support to get through the crisis time. I believe in self determination, and that a person ultimately knows what is best for themself. Additionally, I believe that parents are the experts regarding their own children. Parents know their children better than anyone. Advocacy for children"s safety, health and well being continues to be an important factor in my career, and I believe education is the best way to achieve this."
Parenting a young child is challenging, but it is so much more difficult when your child is oppositional, defiant, and/or aggressive. Many parents blame themselves, feel isolated, and are unsure of what to do. You can be the solution, though! Through a unique approach, I coach parents and guardians in developing the necessary tools for promoting a healthy relationship with their children based on mutual love and respect. In return, children feel more secure and are less interested in testing boundaries.
I enjoy working with families, couples, individuals and children. Many of us struggle daily with issues like anxiety, stress, depression, anger or just feeling misunderstood. My approach is to walk alongside you and explore and further process the challenges that may be present in your life. I hope to provide an environment where you may feel safe and accepted. As a MFT graduate student intern, I use attachment-based, existential, and systems frameworks. Together, we may work together exploring patterns in relationships, support systems, past and present experiences, and emotions.
As a licensed professional counselor, I am honored to walk along beside you guiding, teaching, supporting, and encouraging during this journey of exploration, change, and acceptance. May your final destination be learning to live a life you want to be present in.
I approach counseling as a facilitator of growth and holistic health. I believe in order for clients to have a strong state of mental health they need to address not only their psychological health, but also their physical and spiritual health. I enjoy working with children, adolescents and adults.
Do the challenges of life have you feeling overwhelmed, depressed, and confused? Life is difficult, and despite all of our efforts it gets the best of everyone from time to time. Counseling is a unique process that can afford you a valuable opportunity to enrich your relationships, gain greater skills for living, valuable insight, and a sense of direction into your life. As a licensed professional therapist I am specifically trained to help people develop new solutions to life's problems. My goal is to help you live the best life possible.
My hope for therapy and our collaborations together is that you can start to become more intune with your thoughts, actions, and emotions. While in therapy, you are in charge, and we will work together to overcome whatever obstacles life has thrown at you. Together we will explore those barriers and develop techniques to empower you towards being your Bestself. As we work to build the therapeutic relationship, I will help you identify vital resources and social supports that could help decrease unfavorable symptoms while working together to identify a positive outlook on life and regain a sense of self outside of therapy.
