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.

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.

It can be a daunting task to find a therapist, let alone a therapist you can connect with. I commend those who have taken these challenging first steps in their mental health journey, and who are ready to face their challenges with a trusted professional. My style is active with gentle direction, and I encourage self-compassion to my clients to promote healing. I feel that the therapeutic relationship is the most important aspect of treatment, and I encourage openness throughout our sessions together. I work best with a client who is open to homework outside of session and who is looking to make meaning out of their experience.

I spend much time helping couples overcome the aftermath of affairs and help lead them to a better relationship than they previously had. I also work with individuals with problems like depression, anxiety and loss. I do my sessions exclusively by video and phone and have done teletherapy for about five years. My style is very casual and thoughtful. And I have become very adept at doing teletherapy. I find that most of my clients prefer this format.
