Currently screening for "Real Solutions for Managing Anger" men's group! Each moment there is the opportunity to find a new strength in yourself. Your goals may be undefined, feel too far to reach, or may not even be on your mind. That is alright. What matters is that you are here, looking for support, understanding, empathy, or whatever else may alleviate your pain. You are not your mental health issues. You are complex, unique, and strong. Life is like a roller coaster of experiences and emotions, and sometimes, we need support with all the chaos.

Everyone goes through difficult times and needs a little additional support sometimes. I am interested in assisting you in finding ways to meet your personal goals. This is a collaborative, confidential process that can involve learning new coping skills, improving communication skills, increasing motivation for change, working through past trauma or feelings of grief, starting recovery for an addiction, or any of numerous other therapeutic goals. I have been working as a mental health therapist since 2000, and I find it very rewarding to be able to help others enrich their lives.

As a relational therapist, I understand the power that relationships have to profoundly shape our lives and that connection to both ourselves and others is vital.

I am passionate about integrating social justice into my work with clients and aim to create a space that draws upon your own lived experiences, insight, and goals for the future. I am sex and pleasure positive, queer affirming, and enjoy supporting clients in exploration of gender and sexual identity/expression.

I believe in tailoring the therapy to meet each client's individual. I primarily use psychodynamic therapy which helps the client gain self-insight but also use a variety of therapeutic techniques including cognitive and behavioral methods. Being able to stand back from one's self and gain perspective about one's personality, choices and actions are important in helping an individual work through issues. I help the client explore what issues from the past or present may be contributing to depression or anxiety.

My hope is to create a safe space for you to explore and identify your needs for the therapeutic relationship so that we can create the most effective experience for you. I recognize that each client is unique and therefore approach my work using a client-centered, strengths-based model to personalize treatment based on each individual’s needs and goals.

You may be noticing that you are struggling with the stress and anxiety that life brings. You also may see changes in your mood, motivation, and self-worth because of it. Naturally, that may spill over into your work, personal relationships, and family relationships. You may also resort to unhealthy behaviors like substances, food, video games, etc. just to feel better, or not feel at all, only for a short while. You are not alone in how you are feeling, and there is also room for you to grow and heal to be your best and healthy self. You deserve better, and I can help you get to a place where you start to give yourself better.

Accepting new clients. On-line scheduling. Licensed in WA, MN, SD, and IA. Life's most challenging moments can ask you to step out of your comfort zone which can feel uncomfortable, unsettling, or even scary. As a result, you can experience anxiety, depression, and anger to such levels that you start to struggle in other aspects of your life. Learning to navigate these challenges, with compassion and acceptance, can help you evolve and thrive wherever life leads you. Despite incredibly difficult situations, you can uncover your resilience and build your authentic life, while establishing stability and support.

Compassion, mindfulness , and healthy boundaries lead to successful life transitions.
We all experience anxiety, fear, depression or suffering - especially when faced with life transitions. Teens transitioning to adulthood; families transitioning through marriage, parenthood, divorce; individuals transitioning through career changes and aging; are all common, but often stressful experiences. These transitions also have the potential to bring joy, reflection and peace. However, we all need help sometimes to find the joy in our lives. I particularly enjoy helping adolescents and young adults find their path in this world, and believe this is a particularly critical transition.

I am a compassionate person that truly believes that each individual in this world deserves authentic happiness and inner peace. We all have our own journey of growth, and I feel like I have a unique opportunity to create a safe space to support others in healing from experiences that have challenged their sense of self. Each individual is in charge of his/her/their own growth, and I view therapy as a partnership between myself and my clients throughout each stage of change. Therapy is a process that enables a person to discover self-awareness, to harness self-expression, and explore the capacity to have and hold stronger feelings.

I incorporate mindfulness , meditation, and self compassion teachings.
Whether you are dealing with stressors related to past trauma or current life challenges, you don't have to work through the emotional struggles alone. As we face complex challenges unique to the multiple roles that we hold in your life, it's easy to get lost in everyday responsibilities, ignoring the potential warning signs of depression and anxiety. If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed, disconnected, angry, restless, racing thoughts, exhausted, stressed, living in survival mode; give yourself permission to heal! How you think+how you feel+how you act, creates your life. Take a mindful approach to an awake and poised you.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.
