I work from the idea that all of our life experiences are opportunities to discover ourselves. The road to peace, health, healing, purpose, meaning, and happiness is learning how to allow and be more of YOU, and less of who you think you should/ need to be. You and I will process your story, get to know your patterns, see what is getting in the way, and ultimately help you feel empowered and inspired.

According to Mental Health America (AMA), before COVID-19, data shows that over the past 3 years there has been a steady increase in the number of youth and adults struggling with anxiety and depressive symptoms and there continues to be an unmet need for individuals to receive proper care. AMA states, since the onset of COVID-19, the number of people looking for mental health services has “skyrocketed.” This past year has been painful for so many on so many different levels. If you're seeking balance amidst a myriad of uncertainties, let's connect. Therapy is not just another obligation. It's a gift to yourself and you deserve it!

If you're overwhelmed, anxious, or feel you've lost your way, therapy can help. You can take your power back. I help people who have experienced trauma and/or stress regain control of their lives. Extreme stress (trauma) can make it hard to cope and move past the experience. Circumstances like personal crisis, injury/pain (physical and emotional), and helplessness make it feel difficult to move forward. You've survived the traumatic event; you can heal and improve your life! I can walk with you so you're not alone.

There are a lot of new pressures in your world right now. Things are changing quickly and there's a lot of uncertainty. "What if I crumble under all of these pressures?" You appear calm on the outside but on the inside you're wondering if you're really cut out for this. Anxiety about all of the uncertainty and your ability to manage it is real. It makes it difficult to think clearly and perform effectively, let alone be present in your day to day life. What can you control during these times of sudden change? You're ready for a mindset change - to go from reacting to taking charge of your life in this new environment.

I'm having issues with this relationship. Most therapists don't seem to understand it. I need therapy that is responsive to my specific situation. Family and friends don't seem to understand. Life is just not going as smoothly as I need it to, because my situation is not "mainstream". Do you need guidance to help you get through depression, anger, doubt, or anxiety? Do you deal with self-esteem, relationship, sexual issues, feeling isolated, and feeling separated from larger society? Is this feeling or situation normal? If you can relate to these questions, I can help.

Change is an inevitable facet of life. Although some changes may be welcome, others may evoke feelings of fear, sadness, or even despair. Be it the loss or rupture of important relationships, upsets in one's career or academics, or taking on new roles and/or responsibilities; changes like these can be challenging. However, they may also present opportunities for deep self-reflection and personal growth.

Life is a funny thing. And often terribly complicated. During our journey in this world, we often face challenges that can feel too big or ongoing. Whether it’s with chronic feelings of anxiousness, depression, emptiness, issues about sexual orientation, gender, or ethnicity, relationship conflict, sleep disturbances, substance misuse, school or work issues, or any combination of those, many of us struggle silently. But you don't have to.

If you're struggling with intense emotions that feel like they are controlling you and behaviors that help in the short term but only make life harder -- you're in the right place. A lot of times we continue to struggle, not because we don't want to change, but because we don't know how to do things differently. I can teach you tangible skills to have more choice and control over your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Learning these skills can make the difference between your emotions dictating your life and you finally being in the drivers seat.

Maybe years of trying to cope have led to a sense of despair. Many have a sense that today's struggle comes from yesterday's traumas. The question remains: how to break free? Patients want to get on with living a values driven life, free from the effort to battle painful emotions. I help people discover a direction and a connection with their own values to get on with living the life they choose.

Asking for help in a society that prides its self on self-sufficiency and 60-hour workweeks can be a little unnerving to say the least. Admitting to yourself that you need help and cannot handle everything alone is something we are taught to view as weakness or failure; which makes looking for a therapist upsetting to some. However, if you had high blood pressure, you would seek out a doctors help without embarrassment; seeking help from a counselor is the same. So, if you feel stuck in a rut; have lost that drive in your life or you just need help getting over a bump in the road - You are not alone.

Solution-focused therapy in 28801, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 28801 are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in 28801. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 28801
