Deciding to take those initial first steps toward seeking help through psychotherapy can be challenging. Some initial concerns may include, "How will I know if the therapist is competent?" "What if they judge me?" "Will I feel comfortable telling them what I am really feeling and thinking?" These concerns are extremely common in trying to find the right therapist for you. The key phrase is "the right therapist for YOU..." Everyone is different with different needs. I encourage you to read about my experience and the services I provide in to see if I may be the right therapist for you.

*NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME, CHECK BACK LATER* Despite your best efforts, life is unknowable - you can't always predict or be prepared for what comes your way. You might need help sorting out what's going on. As a therapist, I have learned that we are not alone in our struggles. People hurt together, and we also must heal together. Through our relationships and experiences, we can grow and rediscover what we thought was once lost. I want to help you down that path of discovery while using psychotherapeutic approaches such as attachment theory, AEDP, IFS, interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB), Somatic Experiencing, and EMDR.

The mind has a funny way of keeping us emotionally safe when we experience pain and hurt in our lives. At times we may do things that seem appropriate and true to what we feel, but only later do we often realize that our actions have not only hurt ourselves but also the ones we love. Oftentimes, have you felt that you just are going through the motions of your life and aren't able to have meaningful connections with those around you, but are unsure of how to change.

To learn and grow, children require a tapestry of love, safety, and challenge. When the challenges youth face exceed the amount of resources available, therapy can be helpful. Private, goal oriented, engaging and fun activities can motivate youth to participate in a process they might otherwise avoid. In my practice, I help children address anger, depression, trauma, school related difficulties, divorce, and adjustment issues. With over 20 years of clinical expertise, I understand that children's therapy is most effective when the process is safe and interesting. In my practice I help youth and families embrace needed change by using their strengths to solve problems.

Creativity. It's one of our most precious birthrights. Yet when we suffer, we often forget that there is a solution to every problem. All problems in living can be thought of as a failure of the imagination, an inability to envision solutions, garner resources, or initiate movement. As a therapist I have honed the skill of generating creative solutions through traditional talk therapies and with expressive art. Through the utilization of visual arts, imagery, music, dreamwork, and writing, I can teach you how to use your own creativity as a tool for self-discovery, expression, and most importantly, integration.

My ideal client is one who has dealt with anxiety and/or depression throughout life. The clients who have tried therapy periodically but struggle to maintain a stable mood. Clients who are uncomfortable in most environments and seem to always be on edge. These clients often face social, professional, and family struggles because they are reactive, defensive, and sometimes impulsive in both language and actions. People who struggle to be able to motivate themselves into action. These qualities can lead to feeling misunderstood and alienated. I have successfully treated clients that fit this profile.
