Currently most sessions by web platform. Change happens when clients harness their own motivation and make the decision to change for themselves. I meet my clients where they are. I will assist you in creating a wellness vision. From there we set goals to ultimately reach that vision, always learning from went well and especially what did not. The human spirit is resilient. Self compassion and self care are essential for growth. Having a sense of purpose in life brings joy. I use techniques from positive psychology and motivational interviewing and value looking at the cup as half full rather then half empty.

Finding our way back to our whole self can be a difficult journey, one that asks us to connect with feelings not yet owned, wounds not yet processed, and longings not yet voiced. When our needs for comfort, validation, protection, and predictability are not met in our relationships, we can be vulnerable to feeling unworthy, unsafe, and that our needs are unimportant. The strategies we have for dealing with our unmet needs often show up in similar patterns for managing stress, distress, and disconnection. Some move towards others, hoping that if we fight loud, long, or hard enough, our pain and anger will eventually be acknowledged.

Are you concerned that your child is worrying too much or their sadness is overwhelming them? It is painful to see your child nervous, isolated, unhappy, and alone. You may be worried that your teen is hurting but they will not open up to you. You know your teen should be active and engaged in a social life but they spend most of their time at home or on their electronic devices. Maybe your home life has become stressful and consumed with conflict and stress. You are sure that therapy is a good idea but you have no idea on how to convince them to try it out.

Seeking support is a difficult process in most cases but becomes harder when trying to navigate this process for families with kids or teens. Mental health issues and problematic behaviors often leave families feeling frustrated that they aren’t respected or heard by each other. Finding the right support can feel even more daunting, especially when trying to gauge whether your family and clinician are a good match. When the family system is able to establish a strong foundation in the therapeutic relationship, then the family can begin addressing its challenges and start the healing process.

Life can be challenging. Perhaps you are feeling stuck in your marital or relational issues. Maybe, you are feeling hopeless after the loss of a loved one or job. When you need help and direction most, therapy can guide you through challenges. I believe that anyone can excel with sufficient guidance and support. My areas of concentration are couples’ issues, family conflicts, life transitions, self-esteem, trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, emotional healing, spiritual issues, and more.

I have always been a helper. In the first grade my compassion got me into trouble for reassuring a classmate that the teacher wouldn't mind if he removed the tape over his mouth to eat his recess snack. Needless to say, she minded. In high school I was the "go to" person for friends who were having all sorts of relationship problems. This pattern continued through college. I guess it is no surprise that I now help people solve their problems for a living.

We all deserve to feel safe and at peace in the world. Trauma can include any experience that has been overwhelming or where you felt out of control. If unresolved, the effects of trauma can explain a variety of emotional and physical symptoms: chronic tension or anxiety, depression, distrust, reacting to loved ones with anger, absent-mindedness, difficulty setting boundaries or asking for what you need, feeling emotionally or physically numb/disconnected, needing to control or anticipate, aches and pains not otherwise explained by a medical diagnosis, or relying on substances, food or the internet to soothe.

Often many individuals realize the need for professional assistance in order to successfully navigate and cope with barriers they are experiencing, whether this is relationship strain, personal difficulties such as intense emotional responses, or goals to achieve. In many cases there are learned behaviors that cause distress which resulted from previous experiences and further shape our choices into the future. Regardless of the barrier, individuals seek support when these begin to impact their ability to function day to day.

I believe that everyone can benefit from psychotherapy. Utilizing this process can help you to identify, develop, and implement behavioral, emotional, and cognitive change that can allow you to feel more centered and self-confident, and can provide an increased sense of empowerment to address future challenges. I view seeking help through psychotherapy as a sign of strength rather than of weakness. Taking this step often makes one feel anxious, but my experience is that once taken, people usually feel a sense of relief, combined with an increase in hopefulness. In a way, seeking help is the first step on the path to healing.
