The ideal client is one ready to take responsibility for their health. They are open to looking at their issues, to reach into their pocket of resilience and to assist in developing more positive ways of coping with distress--whether that distress is related to interpersonal conflict, mood disorder, physical illness, significant loss or trauma . I believe that there is a significant relationship between a person's spiritual life and mental health. I consider myself to be a Christian therapist without citing chapter and verse. Although my office is small, my goal is to create an environment that conveys comfort and care.

I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, adoption, trauma , and parenting problems. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I have worked in a variety of settings including residential, mobile crisis, outpatient, and in-home. I feel like that is important to explain as, it means that I have had experience working with a broad range and severity of clinical issues. I have the most experience working with anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, family/relationship conflicts, life transitions, and complex trauma /abuse.

I have furthered my education by receiving specialized training in Addiction, Trauma , and Relationship Disorders.
In my personal and professional life, I have found one thing to be true: Life can be hard. I have a passion for supporting others in resolving pain and reclaiming fullness in life. While pain is an inevitable part of the human experience, suffering is optional. I am dedicated to helping individuals, couples, and families heal from relational and other traumas, problematic sexual behaviors, addictions, and intimacy disorders. I see men and women whose lives have spiraled out of control become desperate for help. I see brokenhearted adults and children as they learn to cope with an unstable world. My heart is to heal the broken hearted and give hope where hope was once lost.

Here at Affirming Life Therapy, we define trauma as anything less than a life affirming experience and want you to know that regardless of your gender, sexual orientation, religion, race, ethnicity, relationship dynamics, or past you are welcome and respected here.
You may be feeling overwhelmed, isolated, anxious, depressed, and reliving past traumatic experiences, but hopeful for understanding, confidence, and peace. Through my work in sexual assault centers, domestic violence shelters, in private practice, and at Onsite Workshops I have learned how trauma is stored in the body, how it creates negative beliefs about the self, how it keeps us from living in the present moment and how it keeps us from connecting to those around us. Working with me feels like gentle confrontation and resource building in order to delve into past wounds with a deeply open, knowledgeable, and compassionate ally.

A strong therapeutic relationship can provide the context for transformative healing and growth. I work well with people who have experienced trauma or deprivation in their early experience and who desire healing from those events, as well as those who feel stuck in unhealthy patterns of behavior. Since many chronic issues contain elements of earlier experiences, our work together may include increasing your awareness about how your past is at work in the present, reducing its ability to dictate your responses and choices, and letting go of defensive strategies that worked in the past but are not serving you now.

I enjoy working with trauma , relationship issues, addictions, anxiety/panic, depression/grief and codependency.
I excel at helping my clients achieve deep lasting change. Clients regularly tell me they have never had therapy be so successful before. You are likely angry, numb, depressed, afraid, or simply not sure what is going on with you. I am open, sensitive, and calming while I work to meet you where you are. I provide a safe and non-judgmental environment for you to be yourself and to explore more of who you are. I am eclectic in my approach. My go-to model is one that teaches you how to provide healing to yourself through its meditative qualities. This therapy model is called IFS (Internal Family Systems).

I work with a wide range of individual and couple's issues both faith-based and non faith-based. My expertise is in the treatment of attachment injury and complex trauma . Often clients are unaware issues with their partner, or family are rooted in an attachment injury and/or complex trauma . They come in because they feel stuck, frustrated, or exhausted with themselves and their relationships. Nothing is working and they just want the pain to stop. Once we begin the therapeutic process it becomes clear attachment injuries and/or complex traumas are informing how they live, love, and do life-- and new understanding brings new hope.

I have been a therapist for more than 25 years working with individuals who have experienced trauma and other challenging issues in their lives.
Do you currently struggle with a painful or even traumatic past? I believe in active acceptance as the most effective path towards change. Through a focus on values, clients learn to accept a difficult past towards a vital life in the present. To their credit, most clients have already tried to "get rid of" difficulties before therapy. They typically make the decision when realizing that their well-worn coping tools don't work and they're overwhelmed. Ideal clients are ready to actively engage in a collaborative process challenging them to let go of control/avoidance strategies towards a committed life in the present.

My heart truly goes out to individuals suffering from mental disorders and especially to those with a trauma history.
Do you, your child or teen feel overly stressed, anxious, irritable, depressed, lonely, scared, misunderstood, unheard, guilty, or ashamed? Maybe you or your child are struggling with sleep, socializing, concentration, going to work or school, or painful memories coming up into mind or heart? Is it hard to connect or trust others? Does every day seem like a fight just to achieve everyday tasks? Now is the time to stand up and break the chains of suffering. You have the capability to feel relief, peace, joy, and stability with evidenced-based treatment from a therapist that is dedicated to walk you from suffering into freedom.

My approach to working with folks is trauma -informed and systemic.
Hello and welcome! I am so glad you’re here. I recognize that finding a new therapist takes courage. My primarily goal is to create a calm, safe, non-judgmental space where every part of you feels welcomed. I empower individuals by being curious about their experiences, understanding their goals, and celebrating all the victories - big or small. As a trauma therapist, I know how easy it is to feel disconnected, fragmented, or isolated. Therapy is an incredible tool for restoring your sense of self and healing the parts of you that experience pain.

I've helped everyone from adults and teenagers dealing with health issues like anxiety and depression, trauma , stress management, & relationship issues.
Now accepting new clients! Every single one of us faces challenges in our individual "inside world". Those challenges cause us to struggle even more with the challenges of the outside world... but you don't have to face those challenges alone. Remember that when you are suffering and it feels like your life is caving in around you...don't worry. Your inside world can harbor emotions that you never knew existed. Emotions that have been buried for many years and that may be causing you stress, pain, illness and mental despair.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
