For children and teens, I work with youth and their parents to simplify life challenges by finding practical solutions. I am passionate about assisting children and teens who are struggling with adoption, effects of trauma, anxiety , depression, ADHD, academic struggles, or relational concerns. For parents, I support you in facing the challenges of assisting your child. I will collaborate with schools and doctors. I am a compassionate counselor and take your problems serious as we work together to bring resolution. However, I also like to make therapy fun by adding humor to the theraputic process.

The issues I specialize in on are: anxiety , depression, self-esteem, life transitions, relationship dysfunction, and family of origin issues.
My greatest hope as a counselor is to provide you with a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment. I view my clients ultimately as their own expert in their lives and see my role as working alongside you to help you name and undercover any roadblocks that might be keeping you from living the fuller life you want to live. I strongly believe that we all need help from time as to time as people in this world and consider it an honor to be a part of walking alongside you in the counseling profession.

My specialties include: Depression and Anxiety , Trauma/ PTSD, Spiritual Integration and Individual and Couples transition.
Therapy can be interesting, moving and fun. It can also be difficult. I help you balance these dynamics for lasting change. My approach is strength-based, positive and individually tailored to your needs. We begin by identifying your strengths and look at the places where you are able to use them and the blocks you are experiencing. Through engaging, supportive and challenging discussion, exercises and practice, you come to different, more effective, approaches and experiences.

Often a space to heal from past injuries and practice presence with your authentic self.

In my practice I offer mental health education and assessment, a therapeutic healing space, and skill building to assist you with your goals.

There is no one-size fits-all approach to healing. Sometimes you are just a shift-in perspective away from an issue being gone from your life for good. I specialize in helping those with issues of fear, anxiety , obsessive thoughts, health/wellness troubles and addiction, but am available for a wide variety of other issues as well. My therapy programs are specifically tailored and designed to help each individual. Through the sacred process of uncovering, healing and releasing old beliefs, you can re-discover who you really are & find peace, hope and lasting serenity.

At times we all find ourselves in periods of growth that can be challenging and confusing. Growth and change can be difficult but if troubling obstacles are removed, one can move towards a healthier, creative, vibrant life with a new sense of meaning and purpose. I tend to look at symptoms individuals are struggling with as guides showing the changes one needs to make in order to develop into their authentic, creative self. The work I do with client’s is often symbolic and includes dream work, creative expression, deep conversation, lessons from nature, and a deep relational connection that can foster authentic experience.

I specialize in working with clients that try to manage life's pain with substances and other addictions. Many of my clients want to simply change their using habits and I work to support them weekly in understanding their intentions, feelings and motivations as they make healthy changes to their relationship with alcohol or other drugs. As we well know, many clients suffering from substance use disorders have a myriad of other issues that drive these compulsive coping mechanisms; I am experienced in many co-occuring issues such as depression, anxiety , trauma or grief. Supervisor: T. Christopher Portman PhD.

There are times in all our lives when we need emotional support. Reaching out for professional help takes strength and courage. Whether you are dealing with relationship issues, grief, depression, anxiety , a life transition or an emotional crisis, it can feel overwhelming to carry all of those emotions and worries alone. At times it can be difficult to even know what you want and need. I provide an open-minded, nonjudgemental, nurturing environment where you can feel safe to be yourself and express whatever emotions you are having.

My experience entails working with sexual trauma, anxiety , addictions, self-esteem, post-traumatic disorders and depression.
Our subconscious mind holds the memories and perceptions of every experience from childhood to adulthood. And as we continue our journey, the unresolved past continues to negatively affect our bodies, influence our thoughts, behaviors and everyday life on an unconscious level. We may not understand why we feel or react as we do to certain situations or why the same patterns show up every time and unexplained symptoms and/or circumstances keep repeating themselves. Often this prevents us from moving forward with our lives, achieve clarity and authenticity.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.
