It is my desire for Still Waters Counseling to be a place of unconditional acceptance in which individuals of all backgrounds can feel safe enough to give voice to their pain, and find freedom to move toward a different future. I believe each person holds within themselves the power to change and the ability to heal, but sometimes we need a counselor to help us gain skills and insights about ourselves which allow us to progress in our healing journey. I endeavor to both support and challenge you to take the next steps in your journey."

"Life in early recovery from addiction can feel like you've just landed on a strange new planet. It's very normal to feel lost and overwhelmed. Others expect you to know what to do next, but you seriously don't have a clue! It's likely you're thinking you'll never have fun again. Each person has their own unique path in recovery. Professional recovery coaching from someone who understands your journey may be just what you need to move forward with your new life."

"Therapy is a place to explore how you feel, think, and live in the present, which is influenced by your past. The core beliefs and feelings we hold about ourselves are the key to how we live our lives. When these beliefs are negative they lead to unhappiness and feeling stuck. This may come from past and present experiences, dysfunctional habitual patterns or distressing event(s). We are extremely loyal to the familiar, even when it is not working. Finding someone to talk to about your most private life requires an environment of safety built on trust and confidentiality."

I see my role as helping you understand how a particular problem is working, noticing moments you are living more according to your own designs, and solidifying these changes. Couples are a particular interest of mine. I meet with couples trying to decide if they are a good fit for a committed relationship; couples who want to undo habits of conflict that diminish connection; and long-term couples who find they've drifted into parallel lives."

"After 20 years in social service and community mental health- including private practice, I noticed there was no specific support for women with trauma/PTSD history - especially for women of color (WOC). Today I work with women and girls 14+ addressing trauma as “soul wounds.” My approach is holistic because we work at the 600 level, working your experience through the environments of the Mind +Body + Soul synergy. Healing soul wounds means slowing down and space to unpack ACEs, scarcity, identity, oppression and internalized racial oppression, and the capacity to map the effects of social, intergenerational, and historical trauma."
