“I believe that we often must forgive ourselves before we are able to move forward.” Counseling is a safe place to process feelings of anger, anxiety, disappointment, shame, and so many others. I have a special interest in helping victims of trauma and abuse, as well as people struggling with substance abuse. I work with individuals to help them overcome obstacles and heal from the pain of the past, including substance abuse groups.
My passion and mission is to serve others by finding root causes of life issues and healing and restoring the whole person as efficiently and gently as possible! I found the answer by not giving up on myself, becoming an expert in EMDR, and subsequently falling in love with it! I am so very excited to become your partner in therapy in order for you to live life to its fullest and regain a sense of safety and control along with peace of mind and a full heart! Even if you just want more information about EMDR, call me to chat about it. I love people and spreading the word about all that is EMDR! You deserve to know how you can heal!

The counseling process is an opportunity for people to explore who they are, where they have been, where they want to go, and who they want to become. We often start a counseling journey because we are experiencing emotional pain. My hope is that I can join with you on your healing journey, and that you come to see the journey as a gift. A gift of becoming authentically and transparently you. A gift of healthier, stronger relationships. A gift for living your best life.
Counseling can be a great opportunity to feel heard, tell your story, and work on your issues. We often seek help when we feel overwhelmed, worried, and upset, which can feel unsettling to share. I seek to help ease the process of telling your story and finding healing.

ANOTHER ANXIETY EPISODE? I am here for you; I will help you with your daily struggles of anxiety symptoms. I know that you are tired of living in a state of panic, but you don't know how to change things or how to make the FEAR go away. Staying home in your SAFE ZONE rather than going out in public is your way to avoid these controlling symptoms of feeling like you are having a heart attack, fear of dying, feeling like you can't breathe, palms are sweaty, fear of being negatively judged, fear that people think that you are stupid, are fearful that you are going to do something "stupid looking," or fear that you are going crazy.
Do you feel overwhelmed with your current life situation? Is your child having behavioral, emotional and academic problems? Is it leaving you feeling anxious and depressed? I would like to help. I have worked with children, adolescents and their families through divorce, depression, anxiety, trauma, social, behavioral and anger management issues
If only life came with a manual, then we wouldn’t need “leaders” to guide us, educate us, motivate us, and encourage us. Life would be perfect with blue skies and no worries. Well unfortunately it doesn’t and sometimes our worlds get cloudy, and we need a extra level of support to guide us through this journey of life. Sometimes change can be uncomfortable especially when you are vulnerable, but knowing that you need help is the first step to the healing process (So great job and kudos to you).

I am happy to go on this journey with you, and look forward to seeing the outcome!
