With an eclectic approach, I interweave CBT, solution-focused, EMDR, IFS, energy work, person-centered, and other treatments.
**Available for in person and telehealth** In a world that can often feel very heavy with forces pushing and pulling us downward in so many directions it can feel all too easy to lose track of your true self. Feeling confused and asking how did I get here? Or why me? Or, I just want to get back to myself. I don’t even know who I am anymore. You are not alone and there is a way. I work with individuals who struggle with these same questions. Questions that arise from the struggles with trauma, anxiety, depression, attention, autism, and others. My counseling services focus on addressing the integrated person.

I primarily utilize a person-centered approach which means we'll actively collaborate on what feels best for you.
Life can be challenging and stressful. Therapy is a place where you safely address and process through your internal responses to life’s obstacles. If you feel out of touch with your authentic self, problems can seem insurmountable. I work with individuals to explore and develop insight around your own thought patterns and responses to life events. We work together to overcome those things that are stopping you from having a full life and bring you into alignment with your authentic self.

At times, we may find ourselves stuck in painful experiences that we've tried to push away or do our very best to ignore. That 'stuckness' can leave us feeling defeated as those painful thoughts, feelings, and behaviors stubbornly hang around or ricochet back, knocking the wind out of us. If this resonates with you, it’s okay to ask for help and support. Therapy can offer opportunities for new insights and healing. Movement towards and (re)discovery of the things you care about is possible and you don't have to do it alone.

I help people that are feeling anxious and depressed, feel less anxious and depressed. Your mind replays the past and dwells on the future, sending you into panic or making it hard to get out of bed. Your stomach is queasy, your neck is tight, and you feel like you can never quite relax. It feels like others don't see or trust the challenges you face and the effort you actually put in to just get by. You feel uncomfortable in your own skin and unaccepted wherever you go and crave a place that you can truly be yourself, un-judged and appreciated for your unique ideas and qualities.

Oftentimes we seek out therapy because components in our lives are causing us significant distress and disrupt our ability to function effectively and feel happiness. I ask clients who come into therapy to bring with them an open attitude, a willingness to explore their life perspectives and their relationships with others, that they may experience true change and healing. This journey towards emotional maturity often involves a certain amount of discomfort and pain before the healing and change can occur. I provide a warm, trusting, safe space to assist people so that they may continue that journey.

People who seek me out tend to feel stuck, blocked and very ready to have something different in life. Vitality and joy have been sucked out of you with anxiety and sadness remaining. It really sucks feeling this way and everyday is on repeat. No one wants to be around you, you don't even want to be around yourself. Either you are fading into your surroundings and have no voice to exclaim your existence or your irritable, angry energy pushes people away. Talking to someone will likely help you - however, changing thoughts, feelings and behaviors will make the difference. Action is required to regain happiness and wholeness.

My approach to counseling is to focus on strengths and help to assist with solutions rather than telling my patients what to do. My focus is to address short-term problems as well as long-term psychological well-being. The more you can tell me about what and how you are feeling, the more effectively I will be able to assist you in resolving your personal problems and issues.
