First responders and veterans, my compassion for you is twofold.
Are you feeling overwhelmed, down, or anxious and don't know what to do or where to go? Do you feel very alone and nobody else understands or has experienced what you have/or are experiencing? Are you having trouble sleeping due to looping thoughts running through your mind? Have all your old ways of coping stopped working? We all need support and guidance along our journey. Sometimes we need more than what our family and friends can provide. When circumstances happen making life more difficult, you may need some extra help. Together, you and I can find the right path and tools to get you back to feeling more like yourself.

I am knowledgeable in the First Responders and US Military cultures.
Do you feel as if you are no longer in control of your own life? Feel stuck and cannot see how to move forward? Perhaps, trouble in a relationship has escalated. Or job stress has increased because of new demands on your time or a threat of unemployment. Maybe plans and goals are now on hold and you’ve lost motivation. Or you find your typically patient self has been replaced by an angry short-tempered self. Whatever it is you are experiencing, you know life is not going the way you want it. Let's sort through things together. Your life can be better!

I believe that everyone has the potential to grow and learn. Friends and family are great support at times, but sometimes people can benefit from more. I often tell people therapy is a little bit like having a coach. It is someone to set goals with, someone to hold you accountable, someone to cheer you on and help you navigate the road map of life. It is my goal to help you get on the track that is best suited for you and your family, and come up with a plan to help you stay the course!

You are making one of the best investments you will ever make in yourself. Many people with anxiety attempt to control their thoughts, avoid, or perform behaviors to prevent unease or a negative outcome, only for worry to return. This feels intuitive, but actually prolongs distress long-term by reinforcing the ideas of intolerance and that there is something to fear. It's human nature to experience some discomfort. With Exposure Therapy, you can gradually minimize fears with support and thrive *in spite of* discomforts the brain, body, & life send your way. Let's replace the confinements of certainty with the freedom of uncertainty.

Hello. I am so glad you’re here. I understand and have deep appreciation for what it takes to be here. Across my time in a variety of mental health work I have found this piece of research holds true-The strongest indicator of how much you get out of therapy depends on the therapeutic relationship. While I trust you will do important work once you meet your therapist, this is a vital step. My approach is focused on building tools, language, habits and behavior that supports a connection between the cognitive mind and the emotional self in order to create a sustainable deep change. I focus on sustainable rather than immediate change.

I enjoy working with all my clients, however, I have specific training working with troubled youth. The world is hard to navigate as adults and can be even harder as a young adult, teen, or adolescent. In my experience depression and anxiety are secondary to the trauma caused by unresolved issues. These issues affect both children and adults. This can often express in opposition to rules, defiance, self harming, alcohol and drug use. I can help. I understand what its like to feel misunderstood in a world filled with overwhelming decisions.
