If you are stuck in unhealthy behavior patterns--- whether it's outward behaviors like addictions, or internal patterns of negative thoughts--- I can help you identify the root cause and break free. These "scripts" often started from past conditions such as our childhoods or previous relationships, but we're able to update them to match the present and become healthier and more effective. If you have... an ACEs score of 3+ (https://tinyurl.com/y3ty55x5)? Problematic substance use? Possible symptoms of PTSD (https://tinyurl.com/yys6pg9r)? Inability to maintain relationships? Let's talk.

I worked in the field of addiction for nine years and in that time I gained a wide range of experience. From teaching families healthy living and providing parenting skills, to attachment therapy and play therapy for children affected by trauma. Many clients were experiencing relationship issues, or mental health issues and/or were involved with the criminal justice system. With the variety of clients that I have seen in various settings, I've found a common basic need. All people want to feel heard, respected and to be understood.

For the last 17 years I have worked successfully with adult clients dealing with a wide range of issues including marital and relationship problems, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, abuse issues, personality issues and other relationship and mental health concerns. I believe a trusting relationship between the therapist and client is the foundation for all growth and change. However, the relationship itself is typically not sufficient. I will help you set goals for your therapy based upon what you would like to have different in your life, and together we will explore and change the blocks which have prevented you from achieving your goals.

I've found EMDR therapy to be effective and efficient in helping people who are wanting to let go of heaviness and fatigue related to intrusive or self limiting thoughts, often brought on by disturbing childhood events. For couples, I've found the John Gottman, Phd Marriage Institute material in giving couples the insight and tools the need to to get them "unstuck". With children age 2-7 years of age, I've found that they can "play out" their inner conflicts through Non-directive Play Therapy and find new levels of self-awareness, self acceptance and self control.

You are living a daily battle in your head about what you can eat, how much you should exercise, if you are worthy of taking up space. You are consumed by counting calories and by the negative voice inside that tells you, you’ll never be good enough or thin enough, smart enough or pretty enough. You are fed up with how the society/culture tells you how you should look and feel and behave. Your behaviors have you feeling exhausted and depleted and you wonder how you can go on another day. Others may think you have it all together on the outside, but the mental torture inside is killing you and feel like your life is shrinking.

Life has a way of providing us with times where we feel so hurt, messy, or emotionally raw that we may find ourselves wishing to be alone and hide - perhaps even from ourselves. Therapy provides a safe space and opportunity to delve into our relationships with others, ourselves, past events, and hopes in order to illuminate our preferred way of navigating through life. In my work with children and adolescents, I value learning the personal narratives that influence their sense of self, who they feel they are "supposed" to be, who they wish to be, and the problems that keep getting in the way.

You thought you had a pretty good lid on things, and then Covid hit. You feel lost, and there is a chaos inside you now. You used to be a little irritable, now the anger is white hot. When not angry or depressed, you are anxious and have a hard time concentrating. When you’re at work, you wish you were home, but when you’re at home, you can’t relax. Maybe you even have flashbacks. Maybe you drink too much. Things just keep on coming up, and your family and friends are kinda fed up too. They tell you not to worry about it, or even to just get over it! But you’re stuck.
