Having worked as a first responder, I understand the complexities of operating in both the responder role and as your individual self. Sometimes the lines between them blur, or tension arises between duty to your job and duty to your loved ones. If you're looking to address these conflicts, let's dig into them together. Military members and responders operate in unique occupational cultures that have their own systems, values and norms. If you're looking for a counselor that understands these systems and the unique stressors they present, I would honor the opportunity to work with you. Our goal is to get you back to "all clear".

Effective communication, trust and true support can feel unreachable. Sometimes we come across challenges that are hurdles to achieving our goals. You may often find yourself feeling isolated and helpless when attempting to resolve these barriers. Days can start to seem like a blur as you struggle to find joy. Therapy can help clear the fog by teaching skills that help you reach your goals and improve your quality of life.

Deciding upon therapy for yourself, as an individual, a family member or significant other in a couple is daunting, to say the least. Confronting difficulties in relation to one's past, present or future requires courage, which is on its own, an initial therapeutic step in the right direction. My philosophy is that all beings are intrinsically, whole and worthy. Therefore, my therapeutic mission is to help individuals, couples and families connect to their innate wholeness. My approach is an integration of complementary models; including Attachment theory, DBT, Mindfulness and CBT.

Therapy works best when you’re feeling understood. By processing and understanding the events of your life and your reaction to them, we will identify healthy coping strategies to manage stress and strong emotions. Have you experienced a loss that feels overwhelming? Feeling “stuck” or alone in your grief? Together, we can work to help you feel better. Our lives and problems can be more deeply understood through a structured reflection of the past. I use a mix of psychodynamic psychotherapy and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) to help people notice and be curious about their feelings, thoughts, behaviors.

People often want to discuss their anxiety and stress related to life transitions, or the concerns they have about coping in ways that no longer work or that have become problematic. They often want to talk with a caring professional who can help them understand what they are going through and why. Some may want to learn new strategies for coping, and at times, find the motivation to change some of their old behaviors for a new and better life.

As the parent of a struggling child or adolescent, you often find yourself wondering what you can do to help them feel better. I believe it is important to understand “What is happening to me” versus “What is wrong with me.” I have had the pleasure of working with clients ages 3 to 55 years old and their families. I am familiar with Court-ordered clients, children in the foster care system, victims of sexual abuse and domestic violence, as well as active duty service members, veterans, and their families.
