I specialize in addictions (both adult and adolescent) and parent child relationships with teenagers. I work with young adults in helping them transition from high school to college to adult life. I have also had a great deal of experience working with victims of sexual abuse (both adult and adolescent). I believe in helping people define what they want and help them figure out a plan to work towards that goal. As a therapist who has formerly worked in full time ministry I also enjoy working with people who are dealing with religious issues whether it is deconstruction or helping them develop the spiritual life they want.

When envisioning my ideal client, I am looking forward to working with men, women or children who are seeking to better their lives. My potential clients’ goals can be diverse, from reducing feelings of anxiety to improving quality of life by dealing with depressive feelings. It could also be working through trauma or difficult life situations such as illness, moving to a different state or even having kids and expanding one’s family. In my practice I encourage my clients to think for themselves, I do not give them the answers but instead, I help them reach their own realizations and provide tools to use in day to day situations.

Everyone needs somebody to lean on. But what happens when the pressure is too much or goes unnoticed? I see it, I acknowledge the weight and sacrifice. A lot of the time, I believe, humans just need a little validation; a reminder that they matter and their efforts mean something. I've seen that the people with the biggest hearts suffer the most, out of protection for others and unfortunately put their quality of life on the backburner. I remind my clients of the beauty of their own heart, their innate potential, and the power of self worth. We have one life to live, why not truly live it.

Are the numerous aspects of life causing you to feel overwhelmed? Do you find yourself wondering when you wake up in the mornings how you will make it through the day? Or maybe alcohol or drugs have taken ahold of your life and you’re ready to take your power back. If you found yourself saying “mmm yeah, kinda sounds like me” to any of those scenarios, then it might be time to talk to someone. Please be assured, going to counseling does not mean that that there is something wrong with you or that you are weak! It is impossible to be prepared for everything that life can throw at you, but you don’t have to do it alone!
