Many people struggle with issues that come & go over long periods of time. Sometimes, brief changes or improvements can be made; but the issues keep reoccurring or shifting - the details change but the process remains the same. A majority of Counseling professionals & "treatment" methods follow a "labeling," single focus, approach. In contrast to this approach, I view people's lives, challenges, issues, and options, in a more holistic comprehensive manner. A healthy person needs balance in all areas of their life - mental, emotional, spiritual and physical. Restoring balance, control, and a sense of personal clarity is essential.

"This will never go away. I am stuck. I can't do this anymore. I am never going to get better". These are statements I have said to myself many times on my journey of healing chronic anxiety and chronic pain, along with statements from clients on the beginning of their healing journey. There are so many curveballs that life throws at us: pain, anxiety, depression, relationships, trauma, life transitions; the list can go on and life can feel so incredibly exhausting. It feels like you are drowning and all you want is to feel calm, in less pain, and full of life, full of energy, and at peace. You already have it inside of you!

Do you ever find yourself feeling "less than" or comparing yourself to others? These experiences happen to all of us throughout the lifespan. However, there are times when these thoughts and comparisons can feel so burdensome, that it becomes difficult to keep up with our daily lives. Sometimes, these feelings just happen for no apparent reason and sometimes there are life transitions that are easier to pinpoint, such as pregnancy, infertility issues, or traumatic births/loss. Regardless of your circumstance, I help people understand the meaning of these thoughts while gaining relief from challenges.

In the journey of life, storms occur in our path that may throw us off course. Some of these challenges and transitions can be difficult to navigate. Past storms can also keep us from moving forward in life. I believe in the capacity of every person to live a joy-filled, empowered life. I enjoy walking alongside my clients, for a time, to assist them in reclaiming their life. At times our children also need extra guidance to navigate through life's storms. Together, we can work with your child and help them develop coping and/or social skills; developing a stronger sense of self.

Whether this is your first time seeking out counseling or not, I know finding a therapist who "fits" can be a daunting experience. I understand that it can be difficult to ask for help. We all, however, need support and guidance sometimes. My clients often give the feedback that they feel I am nonjudgmental, approachable, a good listener, but also give helpful feedback. Clients also say they feel a 'connection,' and can open up easily. I am in private practice, so when you call, you know you will be speaking directly to me. I hope to hear from you!

“I should be beyond this by now! Is something wrong with me?" It may feel like everyone else has life figured out, or look like their lives are under control. Don't believe it. Most of what you see is mindless action not meaningful experience. Preoccupied and overstimulated, people can't stop to feel, so they keep moving. But then life slips out of our grasp and suddenly there is no normal. The life you once knew is gone and the life you long for is on a distant shore. You're in the unpredictable middle, afraid to move forward, and filled with self-doubt. But it's never too late to find stability and connect with what matters most.
