I find it a great privilege to meet you where you are and walk along side you as you find or recreate your path. I am honored to accompany you on that journey!
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Addiction Counselor who has worked in an inpatient psychiatric setting and outpatient settings to include both psychiatric and addictions intensive outpatient treatment, employee assistance programming, and private practice counseling serving adolescents, adults, couples and families. I believe a therapist's role is to help a client(s) identify areas where they feel 'stuck' and work to implement solutions. I work to help my clients feel empowered never judged! I have 20+ years' experience working with clients experiencing abuse/trauma, anxiety, depression, addiction, and grief.

The idea of therapy can be daunting and intimidating. In fact, it can be down right scary. It’s not easy to reach out for help. Yet here you are! Resilient! Brave! Hopeful! Have you been struggling with anxiety, depression, feeling stuck or overwhelmed? Are you preparing to make the biggest decision of your life and getting married? Have you been married for a while but feel as though you've lost the spark? Have you experienced infidelity in marriage and trying to find your way back to one another? Have you felt like there is more to life but unsure about how to go about attaining more?
I understand the importance of creating a welcoming, safe and non-judgmental environment for the people that I serve. I strive to ensure that any client that I work with feels heard, understood, and cared for. I believe that each of us are experts on our own lives/experiences, however, at times we feel overwhelmed and need guidance as we navigate the challenges that life throws our way. My goal is to encourage my clients to explore and deepen their understanding of the issues most affecting their lives and assist them in developing tools needed to overcome the challenges they face.
***Offering evening and weekend appointments*** Sometimes life is hard and we need a little assistance. I believe strength is within us, and I also believe that sometimes we need a little help finding it. I am here to support you along the journey of gaining understanding into yourself, your situation and your goals. In addition to other evidence-based practices (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, MI, ACT, TF-CBT, Alternatives for Families CBT, Solution Focused Brief Therapy), I am trained in EMDR which is very effective in treating PTSD symptoms. I am also Gottman trained in couple's therapy.
If I’m being honest, people come here to peek around and decide if you want to take the next steps to having a consultation. For the most part friends and family tell you “ just be strong-fight through it”- and you’re not use to talking about the things that bother you because you’ve spent so many years trying to avoid that fact that they even exist. But avoidance gets exhausting and doesn’t help you feel less overwhelmed or full.
My goal of therapy is to help support and discover realistic approaches to use in daily living. I believe in infusing different methods and techniques in order to tailor fit to a person's specific needs. My approach is to provide a comfortable and safe space that supports accountability and growth. I am here to listen, challenge, support and work through various emotions in order to rediscover your best self.
**NOW ACCEPTING ON-LINE CLIENTS** Life can sometimes be emotionally painful, with unresolved "baggage" interrupting your life at the most inopportune times. Even still, the idea of counseling or therapy can seem stigmatizing and confusing. You might even feel like you "should" be able to handle it without professional help. Whether it's anxiety, distress, trauma, or feeling down, we will work together!

I utilize a realm of therapeutic techniques and styles as each client is different, and not all styles fit for everyone. I work to ensure that techniques utilized for the client are tailored to their needs and goals. I use the client's strengths and incorporate goal-directed therapeutic techniques as I believe each client has the resources within to change.
Relationships in which it is unclear whether disagreements and differences will be overcome or result in separation. Miscommunication within families during the childrens' teen years posing challenges and causing conflict. Emotional upheaval experienced by new immigrants and refugees due to differences in language, culture, and expectations. The individuals in situations like these don't need to be rescued, but outside resources can often mean significant improvement in quality of life.
Do you and your partner struggle with communication? Do you feel lonely, "too needy" or "not enough" in your relationship? Maybe you tried talking to your partner about it- but you still feel misunderstood. Maybe you don't even know where to start the conversation. You may have noticed you don't spend as much time together- and you miss the old days. You want to start couples counseling to learn how to communicate more effectively and get your needs met. You want more intimacy, laughter, and confidence in asking for what you need. You want your partner to open up and not go silent or turn away.
Are you overwhelmed or stuck in a rut? Part of being overwhelmed or stuck in a rut is feeling a loss of control. Changing your perspective, changes your reality. Changing both, allows and affords for a shift in how you reset your focus. Finding one's focus is all about taking a keen and hard look at you! What areas do you find that you need to bring into focus, and and what areas do you feel you need to push into the background? As well, which areas do you find that you simply need to blur? These are the questions that lead you to pause, breathe, reflect, and then do the work necessary to take better care of your well-being.
My clients are working professionals, college students, new parents, and men/women struggling in their romantic relationships. Some may be dealing with current or past traumas, general anxiety, panic attacks, depression, stress management, and/or low self confidence. My clients tell me that from the outside everything may "look fine" while inside they are battling to keep their heads above water. If you see yourself in any of these scenarios please reach out and let's talk! Allow me to be your sounding board. The first step towards healing is making that initial decision. Making sure my clients feel heard is my number one priority.
