"Emotional pain is not something that should be hidden away and never spoken about. There is truth in your pain, there is growth in your pain, but only if it's first brought out into the open" - Steven Aitchison. Life's challenges can create feelings of hopelessness, and even skew our sense of worth. You are not alone...I would love to join you on the journey towards healing and empowerment.

I believe there is an innate desire within every human to be seen and heard, and to receive value and significance. For so many, a message filled with lies was internalized, “Who cares what I think? My feelings aren't important.” My NUMBER ONE focus is to create an atmosphere where my clients feel at ease, and valued and given the freedom to tell their unique and personal story. The meaning of “Therapy” to me is this, “Therapy is the miracle of, “You tell” and “I listen”. Therapy is the wonder of being heard and understood.” The goal of therapy is for the "best you" to emerge as skills and strategies are learned and implemented.

Do you feel stuck? Are you having trouble regaining balance and moving forward? Sometimes feelings of worry and sadness can interfere with our daily lives. Depression can make going to work or school seem like an enormous task. You may have low energy, lack of motivation, overwhelming sadness or feelings of uncontrollable worry. There may be a current situation that triggers memories from a past event. It could be a car accident, bullying, abuse, or losing someone that you cared about. All of these situations can be traumatic and my experience with a research based trauma resolution model can help!

Every day, we hear that our children are struggling. They’re overwhelmed by worry, sadness, anger, and stress. We see them tumble and spiral down a path of unhealthy choices and disconnection from their families. Parents become paralyzed by the fear of doing something wrong. They’re afraid of causing another door-slamming anger outburst but are tormented by the potential consequences of not doing anything at all. They’re left confused by how upset their teens get when their Snapstreaks get interrupted or a round of Fortnite is lost.
