We all seek safety, health and happiness in our lives, sometimes supported by, and other times challenged by, our life experiences, relationships and larger environment. Life often provides many resources for safety, health and happiness. When our connection with these resources is somehow block or reduced, we can use a supportive, caring relationship to find our way through worries, depression, dependencies, grief, low self-esteem, relationship disturbances, and spiritual struggles.

My primary work today is with those individuals struggling to achieve the best version of themselves. A variety of factors are at play here from past trauma, difficulty connecting, tragic life events, self sabotaging or self destructive coping skills, among others that get in our own way. I offer a place for the individual to explore past patterns and create a new narrative for a new future.​

Much of this involves exploring unconscious processes using methods such as Internal Family Systems and experiential dream work.
I believe that some of the most sustainable human growth occurs via relationship. This is why I believe in the power of Psychotherapy: it can be a unique opportunity for healing, a process in which -- through genuine connection and honest feedback, we can begin to make sense of the way we have come to view ourselves, our relationships, our sense of spirituality and interconnection, and the world around us. Through our work together, my clients can begin to gain the tools needed in order to change that which they can control, but also genuinely accept that which they cannot.

Often people with these feelings have had some difficulties in life or in the family in which they grew up, including childhood abuse or lack of nurture, creating anxiety, depression, PTSD and more.
Do you ever have that feeling that there’s some part of yourself or your story that you have to hide, and if people could see the real you, they wouldn’t accept you? It's easy to believe that some parts of you are acceptable, but others aren’t. In therapy, my goal is to create a place that’s safe enough for you to share those parts, in your own time. And then something magical can happen: you can discover that you’re actually acceptable and lovable exactly as you are. To paraphrase Carl Rogers, you will find the curious paradox that acceptance creates change.

What is your story? The question seems simple, but it isn’t. Your story is comprised of your life’s experiences from your perspective. Our stories contain themes of joy, excitement love, life and heartbreak, fear, anger and loss. With the demands of daily life such as career or relationships, it can be difficult to engage in being the author of your story. Who is narrating your story? Are negative thoughts dictating your self-image? Is your anxiety controlling your narrative? Or is your sadness causing you to stare at a blank page? Ultimately, everyone deserves a better story.

We learn about relationships first from our family of origin which influence our perceptions, thoughts and behaviors about the world and how we interact with others.
Are you struggling to heal after leaving a toxic relationship? Do you feel as though you’ve lost yourself or you don’t even know who you are? Is it difficult to express your feelings or thoughts? Perhaps you are experiencing tension or communication problems in your relationships? If you have, or are experiencing any of these issues, I would be honored to walk with you and help you navigate your way to confidence, freedom and healing. I work with adults and approach therapy from a Christian worldview. I integrate faith into the counseling process by request.

In spite of having a very loving and supportive family , for a host of reasons, in college I started having serious thoughts that life wasn't worth living.
Have you ever driven a fully-loaded 15-passenger van? As drivers in that situation, when we look in the rearview mirror, the only thing we can see is the passengers. We can't see outside. The side-view mirror offers minimal help. We have a HUGE blindspot. If we are in the left lane of the interstate and want to move to the right, the best thing to do is ask the "shotgun" rider to check. A counselor functions much like that: helping us check our blindspots.

I believe that walking alongside hurting individuals, couples, and families is a crucial element on the path to healing. Brokenness, chaos, shattered relationships, and loss are often concealed gifts of transformation. People who have experienced trauma resulting in attachment struggles, addictions, anxiety, codependency and relational conflict are common to the individuals I see. Keith, my husband, and I offer couples and family therapy together as we feel that it is effective and expedient. When I am not counseling with my husband, I work with individuals and families who are in crisis and are desperate for change.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
