Over the years and after receiving thousands of initial calls and emails from clients, it is clear that many are unsure of what they need or where to go. We find great pleasure in helping clients navigate this process. As a group practice we are able to provide services for a variety of needs: anxiety, addictions, pain management, depression, relationship issues, psychological testing, individual, life transitions and even helping clients who just want to live their best life! We stand out in our efforts to make this process as smooth as possible. Many providers boast about their training in a particular treatment approach (and this is important) but research suggests that the interventions are only part of the story. The fit between client and clinician, the wellbeing of the clinician, the ease of access and the experience of the treatment process matter as much, and sometimes more, than the particular treatment model used. Pillars of Wellness was founded with the hope of ensuring an ideal client-clinician fit and providing both clients and clinicians with a positive experience. We let our clinicians excel at their craft by giving them the space to create their ideal practice.

I enjoy assisting others who are struggling with past and or present trauma, feelings of depression, and or anxiety. I like to utilize a strengths-based perspective and problem-solve to solutions and options they can utilize in order to experience relief and even perhaps resolution from their struggles. I like to teach skills they can utilize in order to self-soothe and or calm themselves. Sometimes treatment modalities such as EMDR, Trauma-focused CBT, Sand Tray and or Play Therapy with children can be beneficial to help one look inside themselves and identify the source of their struggles and collaboratively we find an answer.

My passion is in working with adolescents, however, I also enjoy working with preteens (11-13), families, and young adults. I believe that creating a calm, comfortable, and open atmosphere for counseling can allow clients to let their guard down and feel as comfortable with the therapeutic process as possible. My goal is to empower clients to help themselves realize their true self, work on building on their strengths, process and learn from past experiences, and make both positive and pro-active adjustments moving forward. I want to assist clients with their personal growth as they become the best version of themselves.

I am obviously biased, but I think everyone can benefit from therapy. Nearly 20 years ago I started my career as an addictions counselor and have had a diverse array of experiences including: health coaching, organizational consulting, occupational psychology and good old clinical psychology. I've found that helping clients remove judgement and look objectively and compassionately at themselves and their life circumstances has to start with trust.

My goal is to create a comfortable environment where my clients feel heard and understood. I believe therapy is a place for people to let down their guard and process their authentic thoughts and feelings. By gaining self-awareness, clients can better understand their innate strengths and find ways to incorporate these positive traits into their daily living. I also believe by better understanding their values, individuals can connect with a deeper sense of meaning and purpose, which ultimately contributes to a more fulfilling life.

Life transitions causes us to be in a storm or coming out of a storm, leading to life disruptions which can be extremely stressful; a skillful therapist such as myself can help clients to redirect and deal with a variety of traumas.
