Are you or a loved one struggling with stress, anxiety or depression? Are your coping skills helping or hurting you? In life, we all experience times when we struggle whether it be with guilt, shame, grief/loss, relationship issues or adjustment to change. With a little help, we can move through this and get to a brighter life. In the 20 years I have been a therapist I have helped many people with these issues. One of my favorite quotes is “If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got. If you want something different, do something different.” Counseling is the process that can help with this.

#1 belief is healing is not linear and that there is NO one size fits all therapy! I am extremely versed in traditional therapy that is data based, but believe that often practitioners miss the mark when it comes to looking at the client as whole/ not just numbers. My approach is holistic compassionate care, that offers clients a flexible way to heal and discover new nuggets of truth, in both traditional therapy and alternative ones. I have a particular passion for empowering woman in seeking their purpose and worth. I also have a deep love for working with children/teens that have difficulty navigating through the world/emotions.

When you or family members are hurting, you need competent, experienced psychological help. Training and experience for a doctor of psychology is significantly different than that of masters level counselors. While there are good counselors for certain types of clients, you want a doctor's perspective for your assessment and treatment. I bring a caring heart and years of experience in private practice to our sessions. Furthermore, my training includes graduate level education focusing upon the integration of psychology and faith.

Today's society brings many challenges to children, adolescents and their families. While some face setbacks at home, others might struggle with school issues or have difficulties in social situations casting a shadow over childhood. Although parenting and family life can be the most rewarding experience, they are also complex tasks with ever changing challenges, especially if the family deals with, for example, trauma, anxiety, ADHD, grief, blending families, school/ peer problems.
