I'm also EMDR trained and have been recognized as a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and Gottman-trained relationship therapist.
It's nice to meet you! As a Licensed Professional Counselor at Gilbert Counselors LLC, I draw equally from my professional training and the insights I've gained throughout my 30+ year marriage and experiences raising two now-grown children. I think most of us would agree that we're living in challenging times. Many of us feel anxious and pessimistic about the future. We may feel unable to draw pleasure and comfort from our most important relationships or stuck in destructive patterns we believe we're powerless to change. Some of us are facing difficult life transitions or overpowering feelings of loneliness and isolation.

I am a certified EMDR therapist with a focus on medical trauma and history of abuse and trauma.
I use the term "mental wellness" to indicate a state of being when a person can feel satisfaction and enjoy life regardless of her or his current situation--when a person is able to use her or his strengths and resources to challenge life situations or circumstances. Through psychotherapy, I support the process of exploration, growth, and change. I draw from multiple theoretical orientations and view mental wellness from a holistic perspective that includes mind, body, and spirit.

If you are experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, difficulty related to past or current trauma/abuse, loneliness, exploration of gender identity/sexual orientation, grief/loss, challenges with life transition, or any other concern that is creating distress, we can collaboratively explore where change is possible and work to alleviate distress.
Seeking therapy is courageous and vulnerable and choosing a therapist can be challenging. A trusting and connected relationship with a therapist where you can bring your full self without experiencing judgement is essential for change, since our distress is often related to disconnection from others or ourselves. Therefore, my primary focus is on building an accepting and safe therapeutic relationship while also appreciating your individual needs and remaining flexible in our work together. From this relationship, we will be able to identify factors preventing change and help you work toward living a meaningful life consistent with your values and goals.

I have experience working with difficult and complex trauma and PTSD, dissociative disorders, and personality and mood disorders.
I believe many of the current life issues people struggle with are the result of dysfunctional coping skills developed as a result of previous experience. These can negatively effect you and your ability to live the life you want to live. Change is not easy, but it is worth it when you see the difference it can create in your life. The ideal client for my practice is one who is motivated for change and is willing to walk through the difficult steps to get there.
