I enjoy working with clients to address various challenges including anxiety, infidelity, communication issues in relationships, boundaries, work issues, anger management, and other challenges. In my more than 20 years of practice, I have found that I especially love working with individuals with sexual behavior issues and couples at any stage of their relationship. I also enjoy doing Christian counseling with individuals and couples who are seeking it to overcome the challenges they are facing. While I primarily work with adults, I have also worked with teens.

I opened In Step, a private mental health practice, 25 years ago in the hope that children, teens, parents, and adults would see us as a safe place where they can learn and grow. I specialize in working with folks who struggle with anxiety, depression, ADHD, parenting struggles, and relationship problems. Using various approaches – Relational Psychotherapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, CBT (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy), and Parent Coaching, I see clients alone, as part of a couple, and as part of the family.

My speciality is in trauma which I have published on. I use EMDR, parts work and a psychodynamic approach. I particularly appreciate working with those who were chronically stressed in their childhood & doing couples intensives. I have extensive experience working with U.S. service members, business leaders with stressful jobs, intimate partner violence, and childhoods of neglect & deprivation. I also conduct research on trauma and health psychology. I do not just, "sit and listen." I play an active role in your therapy.

The focus of my practice is to help people manage and cope better, and to help them understand themselves better in the process. I find it incredibly gratifying to be part of the healing and growth process that defines the psychotherapy experience. My patients work on relationship issues, substance abuse issues, work issues, depression and anxiety issues, and developmental issues having to do with the ever changing demands on all of us as we get older. I also work with couples and families, with particular emphasis on adolescence and young adulthood in the family work that I do.

In my experience, I've found that the more clients are interested and motivated to make changes, the more they will benefit from the therapeutic process. Client's issues can vary from dealing w a change or transition in their lives to someone who struggles with a chronic mental health issue. Clients are able to be practical and realistic in relation to their goals. Typically, clients are wanting to have a safe space and connection in order to reduce the intensity, duration, or frequency of their issues or associated symptoms.

The mind is the most powerful resource of the body. It is also, unfortunately, the least managed. It keeps a record of experiences and dictates emotions to us based on those experiences. What we think, feel, and believe impacts how we interact and perform. Often, more than we know. What I do is help facilitate mind and body realignment for the achievement of optimal performance in school, at work, and in personal lives. With an eclectic and flexible approach, I integrate mindfulness, motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy, self-reflection, and different holistic approaches to address your overall well-being.

Tired of second guessing yourself ? Challenged by anxiety, communication problems, anger or sadness? I offer a solution focused approach to resolve self-defeating behaviors. Do you often act out your emotional needs, even when knowing, logically it is not the best choice you can make? Learning how to integrate your emotional experience with your best-self needs, is a much more satisfying experience I can help you achieve.

My work tends to attract clients who are ready to outgrow old patterns of behavior, thought, and emotion that no longer serve them. The clients I work with have been through pain - like myself - and need someone to help them fully heal, forgive, and pull the greatness from their pain. Such pain may present as depression, anxiety, relational issues, professional stress, lack of fulfillment, anger, etc. Whatever the symptom, we will trace the fruit back to its roots, plant new seeds, starve the old, and grow the new. I LOVE my work and was born to do it. I look forward to laughing, crying, striving, growing, and learning together.
