Parents develop strategies in my office to minimize family conflicts, cope with difficult situations, and manage disruptive or risky behavior in their kids and teens. Every family is different, and I assist them in creating and implementing a workable approach to meet their specific circumstances. Family counseling will give you a greater understanding of why things feel so hard, why your kid is doing what they are doing, and why things are not changing. You will walk away with specific strategies, plans, and skills that you can use in order to break the patterns of negative behavior and feel more in control and prepared.

*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.

What makes counseling work? A study found that resilience, relationship and faith make a difference. Together we can figure out your capacity for resilience - yes you have a capacity for change. One of the best things about counseling is building relationship. You can't know someone without allowing them to know you. Building that relationship is my primary focus and greatest strength. Believing that change is possible and using that belief can help your process. What are your values and beliefs? How do they guide you? I use my faith in my process, I will encourage you to use yours, whatever it may be - all are welcome.

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.

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.
