While I work with a wide variety of clients, I specialize in folks with a history of trauma, those who have experienced intimate partner violence, sexual assault , or struggled with addictions.
Prioritizing yourself, and your wellness can be difficult, especially in our turbulent world. I would be honored to help you create a safe space where you can completely be yourself, and accepted for who that is. I am always amazed at the resilience and potential each of my clients have, and I would love to help you tap into that. I believe that an authentic relationship between the counselor and client is really important for change. I know I am not always the right fit for all clients, so if I'm not your cup of tea, I will help you find the counselor that is!

I specialize in severe abuse, sexual abuse , relationship & family issues, couple’s therapy, PTSD, ADHD & Anxiety.
CORONA VIRUS UPDATE: 1st, These are hard, stressful times! I’m sooo sorry we’re all going through this. I am seeing clients in person & via teletherapy. Unfortunately I do not take insurance but I’ve lowered my rate to $85 an hour to try and make therapy as affordable as possible. I’ve been in practice 15 years and have opened my service area thanks to Google Duo & Facetime. I became a therapist after doing my own work over 2 decades ago and yes, I still do my own work with a therapist. It wasn’t easy but it was definitely the best thing I’ve ever done for myself, my family & my friends. I hope I can help you.

As a therapist, I am trained in theories and techniques of counseling. However, it is the all important interaction between the client and myself where the art of therapy exists. This art is the rapport established by my value for each client and a high regard for the distinctive qualities they bring to the sessions and their own unique experiences. My practice includes: divorce, pre-marital, marital, family dynamic issues with specialization in life changes from traumatic violence & sexual abuse /dysfunctions & addictions. I believe in encountering clients where they are, with humble respect for what they bring into sessions.

My orientation toward therapy is grounded in a humanistic perspective that holds individuals are inherently motivated toward well-being and self-actualization. Given a safe and supportive environment, I believe, most individuals embrace opportunities and insight to work toward changing negative patterns in their lives and to find hope and healing. From an advocacy orientation, we will utilize empowerment strategies and identify external barriers that inhibit individual development and self-advocacy skills and work through traumatic experiences and impacts from life experiences to return you to healthy functioning.

The gloomy sky, the chilly days: winter, damp and piercing. The chill we feel feeds a darker inner disposition. Bright sunny days and dancing daisies we imagine. Yet are we ready, really, to leave it all behind? To step from the darkness? We say we want to change, but find ourselves oddly comforted in the wintery daze. It takes confidence and courage to move forward. Starting, we say, marks the beginning of your new story. Know that the snow will give way to the daisies and dahlias. Gloomy days fade. Embrace the unknown to become a better you. Spring is coming. Let’s get in bloom.

“The rough must always accompany the smooth. Without one or the other one learns nothing about oneself.” It can be difficult to navigate out of rough times. Relationship problems, depression, anxiety, work stress, or family issues can impact our lives in ways we could not imagine. It can feel overwhelming and as if there is not a way out. My hope is that we can work together through the healing process and start the voyage toward a better you.

LGBTQ+ people experience many different situations and circumstances that are unique to the LGBT community. Your gender and orientation doesn't define you, but it does play a large role in your life and impacts many different other issues that you may face. You deserve a counselor who not only understands this, but also knows how to incorporate a person's whole self into counseling and addresses the specific challenges unique to the LGBTQ+ Community.

It is okay to not be okay. In our society, we get caught up in the toxic hustle of sucking it up and pushing through. Can you be truly honest with yourself? How has that been working for you? How much energy have you exerted ignoring bad relationships, ignoring your trauma, ignoring your true and real emotions? Imagine what else you could do with that energy? How different would your life be? It's not too bold to say it can change everything! You and your kiddos are worth it.

I'm a bit of a jack of all trades when it comes to therapy, and I haven't found a client that I couldn't work with yet! I can work with a client who knows exactly what they want out of therapy, and I can also work with clients who aren't sure of how to move forward. I make sure that I will only work as hard as you do, so I love working with people who want to be pushed to make progress. For me, as long a client wants to come to therapy, I will do what I can to help you.

Sexual Abuse Therapists

How do therapists treat sexual abuse?

A good therapist will be nonjudgmental and possibly demonstrate active listening, repeating back what the client says to show that they have understood. These skills allow people to feel comfortable discussing their traumatic experiences openly. Some important treatment goals are to restore a sense of safety and to rebuild confidence. In addition to working one-on-one with the patient, a therapist might bring in supportive family members to assist the client.

Do you have to talk extensively about sexual abuse in therapy?

Survivors frequently find it difficult to describe what happened to them out loud. They can even still be in a state of denial if the sexual abuse occurred recently. It is important for survivors to acknowledge that what happened isn’t their fault and to challenge and reappraise any unhealthy feelings or thoughts as they arise. Art therapy and play therapy are useful non-verbal means of communication for some survivors.

How long does treatment for sexual abuse take?

Recovery from sexual abuse can be a long and difficult process. Some survivors are able to move on naturally on their own, given time, while others require the guidance of a trained therapist. Therapy needs vary and can range from a few sessions to months or even years. Healing from sexual abuse takes time, and everyone’s journey will look a little different.

Can trauma symptoms caused by sexual abuse come back after treatment?

As occurs in many cases of trauma, survivors of sexual abuse may experience PTSD-like symptoms long after the abuse has ceased or after an initial round of treatment has occurred. In such a case, there is evidence that prolonged exposure therapy is a useful treatment for survivors, and may be more efficacious than supportive counseling alone. While triggers may continue to cause distress, the idea is that, with time and repeated exposure, their power will fade, allowing survivors to move on with their lives.
