Building resiliency isn't always about overcoming the mountain sized obstacles. Sometimes, its about overcoming the desire to stay in bed all day, or have popcorn for dinner the fifth day in a row, or have just one more drink at the end of the day. Trauma, and its positive counter-part- Resiliency, is within each of us. Cultivating a positive support system and partnership is all about accessing the natural power you hold within yourself. Within each individual, and couple, embracing resiliency is possible. Learn more at www.resiliencyresourcesconsulting.com

I have repeatedly witnessed the resiliency of the human spirit. I am eager to meet with clients motivated for change and curious about the possibility of having more satisfying lives. I believe that psychotherapy requires trust and a working relationship. I am a compassionate listener and tailor my approach to best match the uniqueness of each client. I approach problems from a strengths-based, holistic perspective that considers a client's relevant biological, developmental, social, and cultural factors.

I believe people are relational-beings, meaning, we develop and live our lives in relationships with others. When these relationships become distressed, it can lead to a multitude of feelings, such as depression, stress, anxiety and an overall feeling of uneasiness. These are the times when a person may need some guidance and help accessing their personal resources to find more balance in those relationships and in life in general.

I work with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families on a wide range of personal and family-adjustment concerns. Some people have a clear idea of the problem at the outset. Others simply feel troubled and are having difficulty coping with daily challenges. In all cases, I begin with a close consideration of what is known about the difficulty and of factors that may have contributed to its development. In doing so, I encourage a spirit of collaboration in identifying a treatment focus that includes utilization of personal strengths and capabilities necessary to reestablish a better sense of overall wellbeing.

You are lost. Sometimes you aren't sure who you are anymore. Everything feels disorienting and exhausting. You feel really alone right now, and not sure where to go. Life is foggy, uncertain, and even terrifying. Sometimes you wake up with so much anxiety, it feels like an elephant is sitting on your chest. Other times you can't sleep because you're afraid you forgot to lock the door. You see yourself in the mirror and you don't recognize who you are or what you actually want out of life. It's all just too much to think about, so you find ways to stuff those feelings to the very back of your brain and push on.

Over the past fifteen years as a therapist, one frequent obstacle I have come across is the commute people make for sessions. Having to take an extra hour (or more) of the day to commute, having to find child care, pick up kids from school, or find transportation in the first place often becomes a reason people don’t pursue therapy. Over the past year I began working with telehealth and moved towards seeing everyone from their own home to remove this barrier.

There is no one more put together than a person in recovery. Living in recovery is working a program of mental health, staying clean and sober, and living one day at a time. With that being said, each person’s specific program looks different, with the common factor of living a balanced life of being grateful, mindful, spiritual, and finding a sense of community among other recovering individuals. My specialty areas are addictions, mental health, trauma, codependency issues, and how these affect you and those who love you.
