The focus in my approach to therapy is to provide practical, tried and true, treatment that meet your values. We can work on a myriad of issues, some of which are handling transition periods, growing up, disconnection amongst family, relationship conflicts, addiction, or you’re worried about a possible condition like anxiety or depression. Do any of these questions resonate with you? Are you mistreating yourself or are those around you treating you poorly? Do you feel like people don’t understand you? Have there been times when you feel like you’re bored with life? Is your child seen as timid and have they been bullied?

You have never really felt like you fit in anywhere. It seems as if people just do not get you and you might even be afraid to show them who you truly are. The opinions of others weigh heavily on you which has taught you how to bend and fold yourself to meet the needs of those close to you. You feel as if you have lost your voice or have even struggled to use it. But you keep going despite the growing disconnect between who you are and who you want to be. Now is the time to regroup, refocus, and live intentionally.

No one is an expert more on your life than you. However, sometimes inviting in trusted support helps you get perspective on your fears, disappointments, and feeling stuck or confused about next steps in life. No matter the season of life you are in, asking for help is both courageous and what moves you forward. Your resiliency and the combined power of your strengths are how you navigate through life’s challenges. You and your loved ones are not a diagnosis; being human is not a flaw but a strength to be honored.

I believe my role as a therapist is to not only hold space for the difficult times, but to bring to light my client's inner strengths that will assist them in taking steps towards building a life worth living. Goals for therapy are based on what you are looking to work towards. The therapy hour is not about me and my agenda, but rather you, and your needs, wants, and overall goals.

If this sounds like you, you're in the right place. I like to think of myself as a treatment partner, not someone who sits silently while you figure out your own path forward.

Self-Harming (Cutting) Therapists
Self-harm (SH) or deliberate self-harm (DSH) is the deliberate infliction of damage to your own body. It includes cutting, burning, scratching, banging or hitting yourself, interfering with wound healing, and the ingestion of toxic substances or objects. While self injury (SI) can look like suicide, it's not; most people who mutilate themselves do it as a way to regulate mood. People who hurt themselves in this way may be motivated by a need to distract themselves from inner turmoil, or to quickly release anxiety that builds due to an inability to express intense emotions.
