You are exploring this website because you are considering the possibility of participating in psychotherapy. The relationship between therapist and client is one of the most important indicators in outcome. Therapist choice is very important. Therapy is different for each and every person, and can address a variety of needs. Therapy can provide additional support and encouragement, the development and strengthening of coping skills, and increase growth and authenticity in living. Empowerment stems from taking those first steps towards change. Not to fear! Although intimidating, you will not be facing the journey alone.

As a Mental Health Counselor, I believe that life presents us challenges that we sometimes need help to overcome. My specialty is working with young people between the ages of 10 and 21, but I do work with clients of all ages, with a focus on mood and behavioral stability. The foundations of my approach to counseling are Existential Psychology and Jungian Analytical Psychology. I have extensive experience working in Native American and multicultural communities.

We often get stuck by accident but get healthy on purpose. My hope is to be your coach helping you process where you got stuck and more importantly find steps you are able and willing to take that will lead you move toward the healthy life you desire. I specialize in working with individuals and couples who have communication issues, past infidelity and current porn or sex addiction. I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) which is one of the best trainings available in helping clients heal from sexual addiction and trauma. I also love using the Gottman Method for couples looking to improve their communication.

Hello there! I specialize in therapy that works with any member of the Adoption Triad. I personally understand the complexities of adoption and the support that is needed to support long-term family and individual success. I am invested in providing you the tools needed to thrive in your life. While adoption and foster care is my specialty, I also provide support for those struggling with infertility, parenting children with behavioral issues and issues of foster care exposure. The roles and relationships within families are not always easy. You deserve to have a therapist that understands what your facing and has resources.

Human connection is a beautiful thing and relationships can be the perfect place for growth and healing, even when they are challenging. I believe those we care deeply for are mirrors that help us see the deepest parts of ourselves. There can certainly be dark days of depression, anxiety, burnout, conflict, and overwhelm in life for us all, so I work diligently to create space for these pains to be heard, seen, and processed. If you want to feel more connected to your partner, work on unfulfilling relationship patterns, navigate grief together, or unearth new ways of thinking, I offer a supportive and collaborative space to do so.

**If you would like to work with me, please sign up at our website: twinlakescounseling.com.** I like to tell my clients, this is your therapy, you are the one driving the car. I am just the one in the back seat looking at the map, saying we could go right for the ocean view, or left for the mountains, which way would you like to go? Together we will co-create goals that will fit your circumstances and where you want to go. You are the expert of your situation. I am passionate about working with life transitions and those moments of, “this is not where I want to, or planned to be in life.”

Therapy is a powerful investment. One that demonstrates courage and resilience by your willingness to be vulnerable. It would be a privilege to walk beside you on your journey toward growth, self-acceptance, and connection. I work with individuals, couples, children and families from a variety of economic, cultural, and social backgrounds. I enjoy helping clients navigate a wide range of concerns: relationship distress, healing trauma, behavioral concerns, communication concerns, depression, anxiety, parenting support, and others. One of my passions is to support those impacted by trauma and adverse childhood experiences.

**I currently have a few DAYTIME openings** One of the most important parts of therapy is forming a trusting and compassionate therapeutic relationship. From that, my approach is person-centered. Focusing on an understanding of your feelings, beliefs, thoughts, behaviors, experiences and goals. Providing a safe space for you to explore, process, grow, challenge yourself and make the changes you want. I will walk along side you, providing support, skill building and at times asking the challenging questions that often are left unsaid, that make us uncomfortable, and that in the end, help us most to grow into who we want to be.

I’ve been in practice for 20 years. I’ve decided to practice only Telehealth as a way to reach out to more people than I could in my office. And the time we’re all living through calls for more connection any way we can. I work with what my clients come with. I use Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Somatic release, bibliotherapy, Mindfulness and most of all, remind people how important laughter is, and help them to get that back. Especially in the crazy and confusing time.

**Currently not accepting new clients** Sometimes life gets to be too much. We lean on our supports, but somehow, they are not able to help us the way that they used to and doing it on our own isn’t working anymore. This is a common experience for people of all ages and in all circumstances. When life becomes too much to handle, sometimes it can be helpful to sit down with a trained professional to explore the challenges in your life and gain new insight that can bring you to a more enjoyable future.

Having a difficult childhood isn't something that anyone wanted to experience. Once we get to adulthood, it can feel like a calculus problem as we try to function in adult relationships with the coping mechanisms learned in a dysfunctional or traumatic childhood. Safety issues, trusting others, trusting self, self-compassion, being safely embodied, and attachment issues can be difficult to manage alone. Every human has a healthy, beautiful, inner core self. We have within us every age that we have ever been. It truly is never too late to have a happy childhood and to reclaim the inner self and be whole and free from trauma/drama.

I love helping people heal themselves, move forward, and find their true paths. For many of us, traumatic events often lead to self-discovery and spiritual growth. I always feel honored when I witness my client going through such a transformation. Healing from trauma does not happen overnight. It takes a lot of commitment and effort, but the end result is a reward that could not be more satisfactory.

We confront honestly and gently what there is to learn as well as unlearn and, if our work is successful, clients leave treatment more confident, self-aware and equipped to live fuller lives. I particularly welcome into my practice clients identifying as LGBTQIA+ and neurodivergent (e.g. ADHD, autism).

“Just because we live in a hectic/ chaotic world, doesn’t mean our lives and relationships need to be.” I work with children, teens, young adults, families, couples and adults. My education and training is focused on working through hard life situations in preparation for the future. I've worked extensively with former athletes on the transition to non-competitive life. I extensively work under Solution Focused Therapy lens, where we would focus more on the future rather than the past, using successful past experiences to help work through current life difficulties.
