You realize that moving forward is often times the most important function of self-care, however you need help. I am humbled that you took the time to read my profile, so let's see how I can help.

As a client focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential. While we can't change the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapeutic approaches and techniques, we can unearth long-standing behavior patterns and perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling life. If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
From the outside, you may look like you have your stuff together. But behind the mask you wear for others, you feel lost and filled with self-doubt. You don’t know what's next for your life. You're starting to worry all the time and feel overwhelmed. You don’t understand why you keep making the same bad decisions, ending up in the same crappy situations. You question if you are enough and what you're doing wrong. Feeling crappy, self-doubt & imposter syndrome, chronic people-pleasing, worried all the time, dealing with a breakup? I help women to make sense of the overwhelming & figure out the direction of their life.
I love working with people who are striving to rise from a place of brokenness; those who need help seeing their innate value and worth. There can be many things that block our vision of ourselves as being great. My goal is to work with clients who need help dusting off their glasses and learning how to reframe their way of seeing the world. Whether it is depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, infidelity, self-hatred, or fear that is stopping you; if you are willing to be vulnerable, then you can experience change. The goal being a new or improved vision for a new and improved you.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW, CSAC, RPT-S, CETP
I have significant experience providing therapy to children, adolescents, and adults. I use a strength based perspective believing that each one of us have inherent strengths that can help us manage life. My framework is based on trauma and attachment approaches which emphasize that the stress an individual experiences is usually rooted in a traumatic event that has formed negative beliefs, dysruption of lifestyle, change in family system, or that has helped to develop a less than satisfying parent child relationship. My ideal client is an individual that wants to have a happier life or a family or couple that wants more peace.
Drug & Alcohol Counselor, PhD, CSAC, MAC-NCC, ADS, SAP
I believe that every person has the ability to break through barriers that we are faced with in life, but sometimes we may need some assistance, and this is when I come in. I enjoy helping people navigate change, promote growth, healing and restore hope. I take an active role in helping you to clarify your issues and identify an effective solution that fits your personal need. When I work with clients, I employ evidenced-based treatment including cognitive-behavioral therapy, crisis-intervention, bereavement counseling, Solution-Focused Brief therapy and spiritual counseling.
**I am not accepting new patients at this time. I wish you well on your journey.** My approach to psychotherapy involves "walking with" you on your journey. The journey would include developing increased self awareness and symptom reduction, which would allow for a fuller experience in one's life. One may also experience increased self empathy throughout the journey. I emphasize the importance of each person's unique early and current experiences. Many individuals I have worked with have concerns involving: trauma, attachment, relationships, identity, life transitions, mood, anxiety, dissociative, personality, and reality.
