After 25+ years of providing counseling I find my philosophy has grown simpler and more to the point. Successful counseling is built on a positive and trusting relationship, much as successful living is dependent on trusting, healthy relationships. I bring a broad array of treatment tools to my work including gestalt , object relations and psychodynamic theory. Most importantly I bring myself; my heart, my humor, my understanding, knowledge and years of experience. I work with adults and children, couples and groups(this includes families).

Therapy is an inherently collaborative process. As such, I believe that effective therapy begins by building a foundation of trust, understanding, and compassion. I see my clients as the experts on their experience, their values, and their goals. My role is to work with individuals to identify and develop creative strategies, tools, insights, etc., to support their growth and healing. As an integrative therapist, my work is primarily based in CBT/DBT, Gestalt , Mindfulness-based therapies, and is neuropsychologically informed. My perspective is grounded in feminist and intersectional frameworks, with an emphasis on cultural humility.

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.

I find it personally rewarding to work with young parents, individual adults, couples and elders as they explore ways to improve their lives and their personal relationships. Within the context of a safe therapeutic relationship we then can collectively explore and resolve barriers to intimacy, conflicts, and historical events that then release you to more fully live your life. Although the therapy process frequently entails deep personal work, whole-hearted laughter and play are an integral part of the journey. Ultimately, therapy is the relationship template from which you then embark on a more fulfilling, meaningful life.

I utilize a mind-body-spirit, holistic approach to therapy. Whether this be your first time coming to therapy or you are coming back again, welcome. Therapy takes courage, strength and curiosity. My approach is strength-based and client focused. I believe therapy to be a two-way therapeutic relationship - collaborative and in time building trust together in which we both work towards your goals. I believe in order to achieve your goals, practice of coping skills is imperative. Light homework is assigned if you choose a trauma therapy or DBT.

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.

I believe in therapeutic conversation; I am not the 'expert' on your life; you are that expert. My expertise lies in facilitating dialogue that looks at the obstacles currently blocking your preferred vision for your current and future self. My ultimate quarry is change: not just the hoped for differences you may want from your partner, your job, your family, but the changes from within that you must incorporate. The old adage really is true: you can only change yourself. Truly effective therapy happens when you are honestly ready to tackle the person in the mirror.

There are periods in life when it is difficult to see a way forward. If you are here, my guess is that you're struggling--you may be grieving a loss or struggling to accept difficult life changes. Or maybe you've been feeling stressed out and lost for a long time and aren't sure where to turn. Whatever the circumstances, it is my deep desire to see you rediscover happiness and purpose-- I wholeheartedly believe that counseling can help you get there. In the midst of darkness and chaos, it can be hard to see the road ahead. In therapy, I will journey beside you as you find your path and support you in building the courage to walk it.

My role is to facilitate the discovery of those resources through respectful and caring dialogue. The formal title for my approach is Rational Eclecticism which involves the inclusion of techniques from a variety of therapeutic approaches that research has indicated works well with the issues you want to address.

(Please note that I am currently located in Illinois and can only offer video or phone sessions). It was Irvin Yalom who said something to the effect that "psychotherapy is like a dress rehearsal for life". With this said, it is my intention to not only offer you support in therapy but to also help you generalize the skills you learn in therapy and apply them in your outside life and relationships. I specialize in anger and anxiety management for adults and adolescents. I also work with highly intelligent adults and teens who have a difficult time adjusting and adapting socially and work with high functioning autistic individuals.

Seeking a therapist can feel like an overwhelming process as a Veteran, Police or Corrections Officer. By offering a free 15 minute phone consult, I hope to ease that search and make it a little more comfortable by answering concerns you may have. Because of years of involvement in Military and Law Enforcement culture as a family member, spouse, Blue Star Mom and Police Officer Reservist, I understand our culture and provide a unique ability to connect when it comes to counseling one of our own as it relates to critical incidents, PTSD, crisis, suicide and trauma by offering hope alongside those who serve.

Gestalt Therapists
Gestalt therapy seeks to integrate the client's behaviors, feelings, and thinking, so that their intentions and actions may be aligned for optimal mental health. The therapist will help the client become more self-aware, to live more in the present, and to assume more responsibility for taking care of themself. Techniques of gestalt therapy include confrontation, dream analysis, and role playing.
