Licensed Professional Counselor, PhD, LPC, LPCS, MAC, NCC
I am a compassionate people-oriented counselor, no matter the age or gender of the client (ages 14-90). I have many years of educational experience to include two Master's Degrees; one in Human Resource Development and the other in Counseling. I have a doctorate degree in Health Psychology. This enables me to use a holistic educational approach by using the Bio- psychosocial and spiritual (if requested) model providing tools to the client. Every client is an unique individual and this is how I use either specific or multiple psychological therapies. Not one person is the same. I am currently only using Telemental Health.
Licensed Professional Counselor Associate, MA, LPC-A
I specialize in helping clients navigate identity by crafting a space where they feel comfortable enough as they truly are to do the tough work of therapy. In particular, I specialize in navigating identity in relation to gender, sexuality and body image. I recognize that all of the identities we hold intersect to inform experiences related to trauma, whether that be race, sexual orientation, sex assigned at birth or economic diversity. My hope is for clients to move toward alignment with their authentic selves, heal from difficult experiences and ultimately to live a life that is not only worth living, but one that is worth loving.
Whether you suffer from anxiety, depression, low self-worth, etc., I believe there is almost always an underlying trauma that must be fully addressed before healing can occur. These traumas can be overt, such as abuse or neglect, or more insidious, such as a disparaging comment made by a parent or a peer. These traumas, whether “Big T” or “Little t,” are the reason we have the “voice in our head”—our inner critic who tells us that we aren’t good enough, worthy enough, etc. The work I do—which is a combination of Attachment Therapy, Ego State Therapy, and EMDR Therapy, helps to transform our negative inner critic once and for all.
How would you describe yourself? Do the words that come out of your mouth when asked “so tell me about yourself” reflect all of your greater aspects or are the waters so murky that you can only see everything negative? Whether positive or negative, we are who we SAY we are, we become what we CHOOSE to speak into the atmosphere, and the US that we present in that atmosphere is our overall SELF-ESTEEM. Self-esteem is defined as “one’s overall sense of personal value and self-worth.” Healthy self-esteem matters because it’s essential for motivation, which increases one’s success, which ultimately improves one’s overall mental health.

Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed and frustrated? Is your inner voice creating self-doubt and you feel out of control at times or like nothing is helping? Do you find yourself worrying about everyday decisions? Your mind is constantly on, and you find it difficult to have a quiet moment with yourself. Perhaps, you find your heart beating a little faster, mind racing, and your palms start to sweat. Maybe, social interactions take a lot of energy and you second guess every word you said. Do you find yourself playing back every conversation or avoiding people and places you once enjoyed?

Life is a journey that wasn't meant to be done alone. No matter the circumstances that led you here, I look forward to partnering with you through the process. I work to meet people where they are in their phase of life. My goal is to assist you in identifying your strengths, goals and passion to empower change. The name of my practice comes from the gem, Amethyst. Known as a meditative and calming stone that works in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to promote calm, balance and peace. That sums up my ultimate therapeutic goal.
No matter how old we are, each of us does the best we can to deal with the stresses and changes that life brings. Sometimes, however, along life's journey, those stresses can become overwhelming leading to feelings of discouragement, anxiety, anger, and powerlessness (to name a few). We can feel "stuck" in patterns of thinking, feelings, and behaving. I believe that the counseling relationship offers hope.
