About

Life sometimes throws us a curve ball. Daily life struggles and stress that we have normally handled with relative ease can suddenly seem overwhelming. Too much stress and the inability to handle it properly can begin to undermine our potential to enjoy our work and to care for ourselves and others. Finances, parenting, relationships, school, care taking, health concerns, and loss can be stressful aspects of life. When we begin to internalize these external stressors it can lead to depression, anxiety, anger, addiction, poor health, phsysical/emotional exhaustion and relationship problems.
Over the years my work has been dedicated to assisting individuals, couples, and families to identify, understand, and modify the impact of these high stress levels. I have found that there is no singular technique, rather a history of experience that helps people over come their trauma and life stressors.
I specialize in trauma, anxiety, and transitioning through these problems towards better communication skills and healthier relationships. Thus, enabling them to begin to have a renewed sense of well being. I have extensive experience with law enforcement and military personnel. Knowing their unique issues has proven invaluable in my work with them
