It has been my joy to walk with clients towards their personal therapeutic goals for wellness with compassion and insight for over 17 years. My therapeutic focus is to assist you in identifying your strengths and current developmental process and how internal and external influences might be interfering. Working with children for over 6 years, I have come to understand the conflicts young people are facing in their lives today. We all have creative ways of expressing ourselves unique to each of us. I have found various expressive forms invaluable tools for individual and interpersonal emotional healing.

Constant power struggles will be a thing of the past as you find more joy & connection in your relationship with your child .
*I AM CURRENTLY FULL AND NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS.* Are you parenting a 0-5 year old who experienced trauma or loss? Is your toddler stressing you out? Does your young child have difficult emotions or other challenges? Do you find yourself getting angry or frightened when your child reminds you of your own trauma? Parenting can bring out feelings of inadequacy, shame, and fear - especially when trauma enters the picture. You are *not* failing - despite what you might read or hear. If you and your young child are struggling together, there is *so much* hope here for you. (Yes, infant newborns too!) Hablo español.

As a child or adolescent reaching out to a stranger for counseling can be a big step-even scary at first. Sometimes knowing what to expect can be one of the biggest hurdles to clear. I view the counseling environment as a place where people can bring their problems and their perspective into an environment where they can feel heard. I believe that both children and adolescents bring their own set of unique strengths into counseling. I have found that building off of those strengths is one key to success in working with my clients.

Working in education for over 12 years has given me a great gift. I have been able to access diverse populations, ages and needs. Working with children and adolescence is absolutely life-giving. I believe behavior is a form of communication, that ultimately children want to do well, but sometimes they lack the self-awareness and skill necessary to thrive. I am honored to get to be the one to support them in their journey and equip them with the tools needed for growth and success socially, emotionally, spiritually and educationally. I am also working with men, women and families. Everyone deserves to feel seen, valued and heard.

Do you have a child in need of counseling? A teen that is going through a difficult time? Or are you concerned for your child 's mental health? Seeking help can be difficult and frustrating for both you and your loved ones. I believe that youth and young adults need counselors who truly care about them. In my experience with this demographic I have come to learn how important it is for them to have a safe place where they can open up and express themselves without shame or judgement. I want to help you and your loved ones find freedom and safety and I believe that counseling is a wonderful way to do that.

As parents, we sometimes experience pain when others are negatively judging our children 's behaviors. This can occur when our children don't listen to us or get into trouble at school. Such experiences may cause us to doubt our parenting ability, creating a feeling of failure. As a child counselor, I understand that children sometimes "act up" during difficult life transitions, like a divorce, parental incarceration, foster care, financial stress, moving to a new home, school, or the loss of a loved one. If you and/or your child need help, please don't wait any longer, now is the time to start working towards your goal!

I am passionate about working with survivors of abuse, children and families, and first responders experiencing secondary trauma.
Everyone deserves dignity and respect. My job as a counselor is to listen and provide non-judgmental support for whatever challenges you are facing. I want to work collaboratively with you to set goals and achieve progress toward your well-being. I believe that people have a choice about their behavior, but they are also a product of their environment and experience, influenced by culture and relationships. I work with my clients to raise awareness of their motivations and goals, and to gain control of their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.

I specialize in helping individuals overcome traumatic life events, especially males recovering from sexual child abuse, that cause them to be "stuck in the pain of the past.
I believe everyone deserves to be happy in life and in their relationships. At times, this can be challenging and people tend to get "stuck." Asking for help can be hard, but so rewarding when you take the risk to change and build awareness. With professional skills, loads of compassion, and a collaborative effort I can definitely help adults, teenagers, and families in figuring out how to get "unstuck" and enjoy their lives to the fullest. I have extensive experience working with anxiety, grief, depression, and PTSD. I particularly enjoy helping clients deal with trauma from the past.

Mental and behavioral health are as important as physical health, especially for children and teens. More than ever our children need resiliency and good, adaptive coping strategies as well as access to prompt, high-quality treatment for common conditions like anxiety, depression, or ADHD. To increase access to services, I will now offer cognitive-behavioral therapy groups for children with depression and anxiety and parent groups for families impacted by ADHD. Groups size will be kept small. The CBT treatment will follow an established approach for 10 weeks (in person).

What type of Salem mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Salem?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
