You're not disposable, replaceable, and you'd be missed! Relief from overwhelming and debilitating behavioral health symptoms is achievable; individuals aren't defined by their diagnosis and/or symptoms; and, the mind and body are one--possessing extreme potential for full recovery. In a non-judgmental atmosphere, we'll work together identifying and focusing on areas of existing strengths instilling new skills, hope, resiliency, and sustainable recovery. Specifically, I have expertise in suicidality, trauma related disorders, and management of symptoms related to depression, anxiety, and psychosis.

I strive to help individuals examine and remove the challenges that are causing them difficulties in their day-to-day lives and relationships. Current challenges may be due to earlier experiences that are continuing to contribute to unhelpful patterns of interactions and reactions. I primarily use a cognitive-behavioral approach to help clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, and other “stuck” negative thoughts and feelings; I see therapy as a collaborative process for gaining tools and moving forward toward more positive experiences.

Heal anxiety and depression for good and come back into the warmth of the sunlight, where you belong. It doesn’t take years of therapy...it just takes the right therapy. It takes a therapy that comfortably and quickly gets to the roots of the issue and teaches you how to fully release what is holding you back from change. Once you clear out the roots, change is easy and natural. Clients tell me that it sometimes feels like a miracle, but the power of this therapy is rooted in science. It is simply working with an understanding of how memories are held in our bodies and subconscious mind. More knowledge equals more power to change.

You are a high achieving individual in many ways, but seem to come up short when it comes to having meaningful, successful relationships with others and struggle with self confidence. You have been defined by others in your life as “successful” but are still left feeling unfilled and unhappy. Maybe negative thoughts swirl around your head when you are trying to get work done or fall asleep at night. Or maybe you experience difficulty concentrating because you are so worried if the person next to you is upset with you and constantly worry if you can make the people around you happy.

You're a badass go-getter, motivated by working towards your life's goals, but something feels stuck or slows your progress. Your life is mostly together, but you're dealing with anxiety, low-self esteem, or negative self-talk pretty regularly. Maybe you feel like it's hard to form relationships with others around you. There's a chance social media makes you feel inadequate. Maybe you still feel or notice the effects of a trauma in your past. You've considered talking to someone about these things before, but therapy always seemed drastic or a little too extra. (I promise, it's not!) Email or call if this sounds like you!

If you're thinking about starting therapy, you've already taken the first step toward making a change. I work with individuals and couples to help people move toward living more rewarding lives. Many of my clients are struggling with depression and/or anxiety. We work to reduce symptoms through simple interventions like mindfulness and breathing practice. At the same time, we journey together to understand the deeper meanings of your symptoms--whether they are biochemical, experiential (rooted in your past) or situational-the goal is to heal old wounds and change the current patterns that aren't serving you.
