Have you been to counseling before but want more than just talking things out? Would you like to add your spirituality as a simpler, easier way to free yourself from emotional and relational problems? I offer deep but gentle methods that release blocks to your spiritual self - your inner essence that is naturally connected and content. This is done by bringing awareness, acceptance, and loving kindness to your inner experience, alongside prayer and conscious intention. These ways can resolve the root causes of personal problems like anxiety, loss, lack of meaning / purpose, trauma, addiction, relationship difficulties, and more.

Counseling is a conversation about thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and the collaboration between counselor and client to co-create goals for change. I am comfortable working with a diversity of people wrestling with a diversity of "problems of living": anxiety, depression, loss, grief, trauma, spirituality, interpersonal relationships, and more.

My clients primarily attend counseling to seek emotional support, guidance in their healing process, and regain their self worth and confidence. They also are working towards self empowerment and growth towards emotional stability. Clients also learn to change the negative beliefs and narratives created from past childhood or relationship abuse and trauma. I have also seen clients who find their faith as a foundation of their healing and I am trained in Immanuel Prayer by request.

There are times when our life, or the lives of family members are no longer as enjoyable as planned. Sadness, arguments, anxiety, and substance use often occur when we experience ourselves going into a direction we don't like. During these challenges, the core of disagreements may simply be a different viewpoint on how a person should live and think. When your challenges become chronic, despite efforts to change, its time to involve professionals. When your way of thinking/behaving no longer progress you towards your goals....it may be time to make the call you frequently thought of making.

It is stressful to sit down with a stranger and work on solving your biggest problems, but a relaxed and non-hurried atmosphere helps. I'm a warm, engaging and compassionate therapist. I absolutely love my work, as I've been privileged to support so many people in their efforts to feel good again. I believe strongly in the resiliency of the human spirit; however, it is important that my clients take away real tools to manage life's stressors. I'm trained in the Brainspotting treatment method, a powerful and efficient therapy that helps improve symptoms of trauma and/or other neurophysiological challenges.

Empathy, acceptance, and genuineness are three qualities that I believe are the foundation for building a trusting and supportive therapeutic relationship. My areas of specialty are in the treatment of Couples, Women's Health Issues (perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, postpartum, pregnancy loss and infertility), Eating Disorders, Depression, Relationships, Pre-Marital counseling, and Emotional Regulation. In working with complex trauma, the emotional processing, exploration of self-related difficulties (e.g., fear and shame), and acceptance or resolution of past interpersonal issues are an important part of therapy. With complex trauma, I utilize an emotion-focused therapy approach, bringing emotion to the clinical forefront of therapy.
