You have what most people would consider a good life. Deep down, however, you battle with a sense of void, restlessness and/or inadequacy that nothing seems to be able to silence. You don't feel safe enough to share with anyone that you’re feeling stressed, dissatisfied and/or stuck, so you keep pushing away the uncomfortable feeling and march on. If this is you, it may be time to focus on your mental wellness, and I hope to help. I'm passionate about using a holistic approach and evidence-based techniques to help my clients to tap into their inner strength and build greater resilience, so they can live out their full potential.

Let me help you!

What would it be like to sit across from someone who really hears the parts of you that are anxious, depressed, feeling worn out and emotional? What if you could find healing and rest through exploring your internal dialogue? There are parts of you that are leading the way in your life right now, helpful parts, that often keep running down the same path to the same result. Through exploring your inner system using Internal Family Systems, we can unburden those that carry weight they shouldn't and heal the hurting parts.
Parenting is hard and exhausting, especially in today's world where there is not enough time or support to accomplish everything in the day. You are feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, and at your wits end with your child's behavior. You wish your child would just behave, stop yelling, stop fighting, and do what s/he is supposed to do without having to repeat yourself a billion times. You find yourself yelling more and more because you are fed up. You have tried everything to get your child to act right, but nothing works. Something has to give.
Regardless of the reason someone may come to me for therapy, I believe that each person is unique and must be treated as an individual. Even though the "problem" gets the person in the door, it is often a symptom of deeper pain. I believe that I provide a nonjudgmental, compassionate setting that people need in order to look inside and gain a better understanding and acceptance of themselves, both their strengths and challenges. I "partner" with my clients to help them formulate realistic goals and give them feedback and encouragement as they strive to make positive changes.
Are you struggling with the direction your life is taking? Would you like someone to walk along side you to help you find your path? I provide counseling using a person centered and relational approach in which you can feel heard & cared for. My primary experience as a therapist has been in helping those with anxiety, depression, or a trauma related experience. Let me help you find healing and the path you were meant to be on. You will find a warm, welcoming environment to explore your treatment needs, and will be welcomed by Chewy, our office therapy dog who will keep you company while you wait or are in session.
I specialize in a positive approach to assessment, recognizing and bolstering students' strengths, as well as remediating and intervening in areas of weakness. My treatment approach is cognitive-behavioral with a focus on mindfulness. I help children, adolescents, and young adults as they strive to find happiness and comfort in themselves as unique individuals. At Mindful Assessment we empower children to succeed by identifying and supporting their strengths and passions.
So you feel like life is too much and that the expectations for you are too high. You feel like you aren't good enough to make it through the current situations in your life, or at least not with your desired outcomes. You struggle with an inner dialogue, like a bad music track stuck on repeat. The thoughts tell you that you aren't going to meet your expectations. That you're not good enough so what is the point in trying. You feel at times like no one will understand what you're going through and you're hit with this uncontrollable rage.
As women we can sometimes relate to feeling disconnected during different stages of our lives. Whether you're a new mom or experiencing a combination of different life transitions. Therapy is a process of deconstructing unhealthy and maladaptive patterns. These can be in our thoughts, behaviors, or environment. The joy of therapy is working on a healthier and more solid foundation. The base of that foundation is your connection to your core-self. Having a healthy relationship with your core-self gives you the opportunity to build self-acceptance. This is the place where confidence, self-worth, and self-esteem live.
I prefer to work with clients on a short term basis who are motivated to make a significant change in their situation whatever their problems may be. My practice is Christian focused with a unique blend of psychological techniques, information and tools with the power of faith and Biblical truths. I work best with adults and or family units.
I have extensive experience in working successfully with couples in premarital and marital counseling. Other areas of expertise include trauma, grief, victims of abuse, anxiety disorders, and depression.

Are you or your child constantly angry at the way things are going? Your relationships with family and friends are suffering. There are times you feel your child is out of control or needs something you cannot give them. You find yourself feeling overwhelmed trying to be the parent you know you want to be. Or maybe you are going through something else entirely. No matter what it is, I will come alongside you and your family to bring guidance and support. Although it may seem like it, there is no problem too big to work through.
Life is hard. If the difficulties you face are overwhelming, having another person walk with you may make all the difference. Therapy can be a means to identify and overcome challenges in your life, and those of your loved ones, and provide you the healing and courage you need to live and love to the fullest. My experience treating issues including trauma, depression, anxiety, anger, spirituality, grief, men's issues, and marriage/relationships, enable me to accompany you through the dark seasons of your life, and help you find hope when it is hard to find.

**EVENING AND SATURDAY APPOINTMENT OPTIONS** I serve individuals, couples and families. The focus of therapy is to meet the client's needs through collaboration with client and counselor in establishing and working toward specified treatment goals. I focus on helping aid the client not just treat a diagnosis. I provide clients with professional, confidential counseling through an integrative, specialized, therapeutic approach in a safe and enriching environment.
When dealing with life stressors, challenges and transitions, we sometimes forget how helpful it is to have someone willing to listen in a safe, judgment free environment. At Ashwood Counseling, we believe everyone can benefit from a listening ear and the empowerment to use the necessary tools to overcome any challenge. Our clinicians have worked in many different environments including schools, mental health clinics, hospitals and psychiatric residential facilities and are ready to join you in your healing journey.
Sometimes, it feels overwhelming to try to 'keep up' or 'fix' things on your own. Maybe you don't know exactly what you need, but you know you want to feel better. Maybe there are things from your past that you have tried to move past, but they just keep creeping up again. I strive to come alongside individuals and families of all ages to help them overcome challenges, find meaning and joy in life, experience renewed strength, find true hope, and become mentally and emotionally healthy individuals. I keep a wholistic perspective, recognizing people as physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual beings.
I offer therapeutic approaches that can help you reach your goal and improve your life by using evidence based, person centered, solution focused, professional therapeutic approaches. Each approach aims to help individuals who are having challenges emotionally and psychologically, by providing a safe and trusting environment. I understand that sometimes life can throw a curve-ball and creates situations that may be difficult to navigate. Whether its adjusting to life changes or dealing with a difficult past, I am here to help!
