Let's Build Hope! I strive to create a validating, non-judgmental environment to teach you skills to manage anxiety, overwhelming emotions, improve relationships, and modify behaviors. You can develop the healthy life you desire. Humans experience emotions! Sometimes we may think there is a right way and a wrong way to feel and distress means, we are feeling the wrong way. That is a ton of pressure! Sometimes, our emotions become distressing. Sometimes we worry. Few are taught to manage emotions and anxiety effectively and distress can lead to self-blame, defeated feelings, strained relationships, self-harm, and more. I can help!

My background includes working with children in residential treatment; adult and adolescent inpatient psychiatric care; and outpatient or community support groups serving many different populations.

As we age, I can't help but think that our lives may go off the path we originally intended. While life can be full of many positive changes and events, there may also be experiences in which one may develop feelings of shame, guilt, anxiety, and/or depression. It can be hard to recognize life isn't always 'perfect' and to determine how and where to give up control. It can be difficult to embrace the good and bad parts of our lives; but it can be just as empowering to develop the next chapter just as you would like it to be. My goal is to help you leap into the unknown, build more authenticity and awareness, and start living a life with more fulfillment.

Sometimes we need to be reminded that struggling does not mean that we are weak, broken, or unworthy- it just means that we could use some extra help. It helps to connect with someone who knows that your story is worth listening to. I want your story to be heard and valued without judgment. By providing a safe environment, I help people develop compassion for how their past and current experiences have impacted them and explore new ways of being, thinking, and feeling. I believe that it is the strength of the therapeutic relationship and the goals you create together which builds meaningful change.

The decision to begin therapy is a very challenging decision to make. It can also be very scary, which can cause us to remain frozen between the fear of change and the fear of staying the same. I view psychotherapy as an opportunity to face the space between who you are and who you want to be. I offer a laid-back approach to therapy utilizing humor, accountability, warmth, and empathy. In collaborating closely with clients, I work to help them understand themselves better and use that understanding to effect positive change in their lives.

Therapy doesn't have to last forever but the benefits will. Most issues people face are relational in nature. There are emotions and behaviors that are problematic. These might include feelings of shame, discontentment, apathy, anger or even numbness. The behaviors might range from avoidance to compulsive and addictive. Are you experiencing problems with yourself or others? In therapy, you'll learn to be challenged and gain tools to handle difficult feelings while making decisions to do the hard work to change behaviors. I have appointments available this week.
