Are your days consumed with worry, fear or depression? Do you feel as though life is getting you down? Are you struggling with stress or anxiety? All of these things can affect our ability to function and enjoy life to its fullest. Counseling can help. I assist individuals of all ages, adolescents, teens, college students and adults in navigating difficult situations. I provide a welcoming, safe, empathetic and non-judgmental environment.

I enjoy positive psychology and prefer to focus on solutions, strengths, and assets. I feel it is important to view each person from their unique cultural experience with a nonjudgmental stance. I believe in the biopsychosocial model and understand health and functioning as being systemic in nature.

Daily anxiety, panic attacks, flashbacks, trauma, nightmares, and/or PTSD - living with these symptoms can be extremely difficult. I know, because I experienced much of this myself! I tried to get better for years, and got lots of well-meaning advice that didn’t really help, and sometimes made things worse. When I became a counselor years later, I was really surprised to learn about specific treatments that can give relief of these symptoms within a few months — even sometimes within about 6 weeks! I work with these well-researched methods now, and watch clients change their lives for the better, over and over.

*Immediate evening/weekend openings available* I work with individuals dealing with life transitions, parenting and relationship concerns, anxiety disorders, depression, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, thought disorders, trauma, and existential questions. When we spend our energy avoiding painful thoughts, feelings and emotions, we’re often left feeling disconnected, with little to give to the things that enrich and fulfill us. Counseling can help you discover the courage and skills to move through the things that keep you stuck. I am passionate about walking alongside clients as they begin to face whatever is holding them back.

“What is wrong with me? Why can’t I just be normal?” That’s what you’ve thought to yourself countless times. The answer? It’s not you, it’s trauma. Trauma wreaks havoc on our lives, easily causing both depression and anxiety. It doesn’t stop there. It also sets us up to experience major difficulties with functioning in our personal and professional lives. It’s time for you to heal. If you’re ready to learn how to reduce your symptoms and explore the impact of trauma in your current relationships and on your well-being, then you’re in the right place.

If you’re seeking help to manage depression or suicidal thoughts, then I might be the right fit. Maybe you’ve used substances and have fallen dangerously close to addiction as a result of your depression. You realize that you want someone who fully believes in you, period. Clients who work best with me have goals that center around growing awareness of their own attitude and mindset, shifting into positive thinking, and daily mindfulness. They may feel plagued by suicidal thoughts, but want to create safety plans that include important people and alternate activities. Ultimately, I want my clients to know and believe in their worth.

You’re reluctant about medication. A loved one, therapist or doctor recommend you consider medication. It’s been in the back of your mind for a while now. Your our symptoms are almost unbearable. Your performance at work is starting to slip. Your relationships feel distant or a bit rocky. Right now, you just don’t have the emotional and physical energy you need to be present for the people you love. Yet you've continued to push forward everyday white knuckling life. And that is no way to live. It's time to love your life! At this point you’re willing to do whatever it takes to feel like yourself again.

I began my career providing counseling services in a substance abuse treatment center and have continued to specialize in these issues. Substance abuse and addiction are confusing to those that suffer from this disease and their families. I have learned over many years that no one is immune to mental health stress, trauma, addiction, OR from recovery and wellness. Expert couples counseling requires expert training. The Gottman Method is taught in three levels and I completed all three in 2017. My intensive couples approach is successful in improving communication and usually provides results in a much shorter time frame.

Many of my clients feel disconnected - from themselves, their family and friends, and from the parts of life that make it meaningful and joyful. When we restore these connections, we find that improvements in other areas are soon to follow.

Fighting constantly in your relationship, but never solving anything? Or giving up on fighting because 'what's the point?' Wondering how to recover after an affair? You're absolutely in the right place. You probably want to mend your relationship, gain a sense of peace and clarity for moving forward, or reconnect and figure this out together. Relationships can make us both elated and devastated. I help partners identify the core problems and rebuild from there in such a way that each person feels understood, heard, and validated. You can expect lots of support, empathy, validation, and a safe place to learn how to move forward.

You might write yourself off as lazy or beat yourself up for not having it all together.
