Have you ever wondered, "If people knew who I really am, would they still love me?" These and other (painful) questions and doubts can be the beginning of amazing journeys of self-discovery. Deep inner work can be both difficult and rewarding. I do my best to bring to therapy an attitude of deep respect for my clients and the challenges that life brings. I believe I can help make the journeys of self-discovery more rewarding and a bit less rocky -- whether the time we work together be brief or more lengthy.
Life can be a puzzle, As a therapist, I work with children, adolescents, adults and families to help identify their strengths and help with solving their life puzzles. I have a wealth of experience with mood disorders, anxiety disorders,marital issues, childhood mental health disorders, as well as foster care and adoptive issues. I use individual, family, and couples therapy as needed for the situation. Give me a call and we can discuss if I can help and if not I can find a suitable referral for you.
I work with young adults, families, and couples helping them to shed light on themselves and the systems of which they are a part. I have worked predominately with clients experiencing symptoms of PTSD, depression, anxiety, bipolar, addictive disorders, and personality disorders. I have a background in wilderness therapy and experiential treatment and love to introduce creative, alternative modes of expression to my clients, including yoga movement, narrative, and outdoor based therapies (walk and talk).
Everyone has issues & problems. Healthy people admit it. I grew up with debilitating anxiety & OCD. In life, you can choose passion or fear. I chose fear for 30 years. I was a prisoner to anxiety when I found myself at the end of my proverbial rope. I began working with a therapist who helped me to understand the root causes of my fears, but I still felt stuck. I started working with a somatic coach who taught me about mindfulness & body work and took me on a life-changing journey to India, where I trekked in the Himalayas & discovered my life's purpose - to turn my trials into triumphs so that I can help others to do the same.
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, LCSW, PMHC, EMDR
Are you stuck in a picture you created as a child? A picture with children and a blissful relationship? As women, we strive for the "what should be". Sometimes those pictures need to contain fluidity and movement and morph into something that we never expected. Many women experience infant loss, infertility, child loss, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and don't know where to go, who to ask, or if something might be wrong with you. Some women experience the trauma of the NICU life, a medical termination, and so much more.
Do current events have you frazzled? Ever felt like you were in a relationship with someone who wasn't available? Or are you trying to rediscover yourself after divorce, having a child go off to college, or death of a loved one? I help people with all kinds of situations. Whether you are experiencing problems in a relationship, grief or bereavement, depression, anxiety, or a spiritual crisis, there is hope. I am trained in EMDR, CBT, ACT, DBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, psychodynamic theory, and routinely learn from experts in the field. Perhaps most important though, is that I listen.
One of the greatest predictors of successful therapy depends on how effectively a therapist can create a space in which a client feels unconditionally safe and supported. My down-to-earth, informal, and practical therapeutic approach enables me to form a strong alliance with my clients. I am passionate about collaborating with people to help them address challenges, navigate difficult life transitions, and to recognize and maximize their personal strengths and resources.
Whether you (or a partner) are going through a life transition (faith, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital etc), experiencing relationship struggles, or hoping to gain a deeper understanding of your inner world, I welcome people to show up however they're feeling and work at their own pace. Goals can include anything from developing healthy coping strategies, increasing self-esteem, practicing self-compassion to learning the value of boundaries, working through relationship struggles, or healing from trauma. Ultimately I hope my clients find therapy to be a tender location between their daily grind and larger aspirations.
Sometimes life can be painful. When depression, anxiety, grief and loss or stress from a traumatic event interfere with your ability to function at your best, feelings of hopelessness and helplessness increase and self confidence all but disappears. This is when anger, fear, sadness and despair take a toll not only on you but on the relationships with those you love. I can help you examine these difficult feelings in a safe, non judgmental environment. As new ways of thinking and communicating are learned and practiced, your life and your relationships will be deepened and enriched.
I believe that every person has within them the capacity for change and healing. I focus on using a person-centered approach to therapy, to help each individual find their unique path to healing and growth. My goal is to create a calm, safe environment in which you can feel comfortable being yourself, and uncovering your own personal strengths. I strive to be a supportive listener to help people improve their lives through better understanding of themselves, and stronger coping skills.
My role as your therapist is to reflect back to you what you are putting out to the world and help you change what you don't like or what isn't working effectively. Our insecurities, moods, relationship difficulties, and the way we see ourselves affects our everyday living. I want to help you be your best self, find contentment and happiness and be able to navigate challenging feelings throughout your life. We heal best through relationships, whether with our families, our friends, or even our therapists. I want to help you find peace and contentment in your life.
I believe people are understandable and once we reach understanding, solutions seem evident. If you have sought help before and just didn't feel you got to the bottom of the problems or if you are new to therapy and really want deeper solutions I can help you. Psychotherapy is the science and art of clinical work. We will collaborate: you being the authority of your life, and me the authority of psychology and human emotion.
I'm an experienced child and family therapist ready to assist you in dealing with life challenges that come your way. As a parent and professional, I understand the many struggles attached to this journey through life. I also work with adults in helping to discover a place of healing and happiness. I love connecting with others and creating a safe and trusting environment to feel heard or understood. I'm humbled when individuals, both children and adults, open their hearts and allow me to support them along their treatment path.
I organize my practice under a psychodynamic lens to help you better understand the foundations of your mental, emotional, and psychological functioning. Throughout this process we will address the internal and external factors that are causing grief, addiction, peer and relationship conflict, anxiety, depression, and overall emotional distress. My goals with therapy are to assist you in addressing areas of conflict in your life and establish goals that assist you in living a value filled life.
Life is hard. Emotions can be painful. Day to day life can feel numb, mundane and passion-less. Decision-making feels complicated, indecision does too. Relationships can be messy. These are not problems taking away from you living your life, these are the experiences of life. You're not doing anything wrong. You're living. These are truths everybody experiences. It can be helpful to navigate these feelings and thoughts in therapy. Adolescents, young adults and adults can all benefit from laying out their human experiences and emotions, and sorting through them with a therapist.
