I have 7+ years experience specializing in grief/loss, anxiety, trauma, domestic and sexual abuse, relationship issues, and infertility/postpartum issues.
Do you feel overwhelmed, disconnected, or numb? What about broken, trapped, or lost? We have times in life that can be exhausting and scary; where there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel. Many times these experiences feel completely outside of our control. Maybe you’ve been experiencing this for a long time or just recently. You don't have to struggle alone! I’m passionate about working with people who are experiencing a difficult journey in life. I will walk with you, side by side, through the fire to help you get to the other side. Let me help you discover the phoenix within the ashes and get control of your life back!

I also have led small groups for adult survivors of sexual abuse using The Wounded Heart material.
I believe that walking alongside hurting individuals, couples, and families is a crucial element on the path to healing. Brokenness, chaos, shattered relationships, and loss are often concealed gifts of transformation. People who have experienced trauma resulting in attachment struggles, addictions, anxiety, codependency and relational conflict are common to the individuals I see. Keith, my husband, and I offer couples and family therapy together as we feel that it is effective and expedient. When I am not counseling with my husband, I work with individuals and families who are in crisis and are desperate for change.

My areas of clinical focus are trauma (which can include physical, emotional, sexual abuse, affair disclosure, witnessing accidents, surviving or witnessing violent crime, etc.
"All you need is 20 seconds of insane courage and I promise you something great will come of it"- (quote from the movie We Bought a Zoo). I get that reaching out for support and making that first call or email to a therapist takes insane courage. And that it takes courage to then show up and be authentically seen. My private practice exists to walk alongside you as you access that courage and lean into the hard things of life. I will partner with you to access and experience healing, joy and whole-hearted living.

Real life is messy and can leave you feeling broken. Interpersonal relationships, careers, marriage, divorce, raising children, life transitions–the human experience is comprised of struggles & pain; loss & sorrow; heartbreak & regret. But what if healing, & ultimately joy, another facet of the human experience, come from the mess? What if you, your child, or your family, had someone to walk through the mess with you? Someone to cultivate a safe space, approach you with warmth, compassion, validation, and authenticity? What if someone believed in healing & joy for you, amidst the mess, until you could experience it for yourself?

I have successfully treated clients who are experiencing depression, anxiety and panic attacks. For the past two years, I have concentrated primarily on clients who have experienced emotional abuse from having been involved with a person who has Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Such relationships leave others feeling as thought the life has been sucked out of them. I have helped many clients go from feeling weak and depleted to strong and self confident; they regain self esteem and peace of mind.

"I need something to change" is a great place to start. Counseling can be a place to facilitate this change. You may find that you are speaking one language while your spouse is speaking another. You can learn how to have a common language and corrective experiences that draw you closer together instead of further apart. Many of your wounds occurred in relationships, thus it is in relationships where they can be restored. I have served individuals and couples in a helping profession for nearly 30 years.

We all bear wounds of some kind. Everyone has a unique life story to share. I became a therapist to listen to others’ stories of pain, and work with them to find light in their darkness. For 15 years, I have worked with individuals and families that have suffered from wounds inflicted by others, as well as emotional harm that may be self inflicted. Trauma and dysfunctional family patterns, or damaging thoughts- such as shame, anxiety, and self-defeat- may serve as examples of these wounds. The weight of unresolved emotional and mental pain can be both limiting and exhausting. But there is hope, and these wounds can be mended.
