If you're looking for a couples counseling, it's likely that you're struggling with many things in your relationship. It started well but you now have difficulty talking about things that mean a lot to you. It can be frustrating because you both sense that your relationship could be great if you could just figure things out. Both of you have worked on being good people, but something about where you are now requires new skills, a new step beyond. Couples counseling can help you develop those skills and take that step beyond.

I work with couples and individuals who wish to address emotional, relational, and identity conflict. This involves tailoring my treatment approach to the unique needs of each client. In my couple and family work, I aim to nurture clients' skills related to intimacy, shared understanding, communication, and connectedness, while respecting each partner's need for independent growth. I believe in the healing power of human connection, and that this bond can be a path to fulfillment and meaning in everyday life. My work with individuals addresses issues related to anxiety, depression, self-esteem, grief, sexuality, dating, and career.

I am a Black (African-American) therapist who draws upon the relevant shared experiences of myself and my clients. I will walk side by side with you as we develop a personal roadmap for you to navigate life's challenges. Having a therapist who is objective, empathetic, and has practical experience with severe trauma can be extremely helpful in treatment. I bring a lived experience approach to my practice. I know extremely well what it's like to hit rock bottom, and bringing that perspective into my practice has been invaluable to those struggling to take that next step in the process of healing and resiliency.

In my practice, I emphasize both change and acceptance, seeking to help you build the life you want to be living. Sometimes when individuals are in therapy, they begin to understand the causes of the problems they are experiencing while continuing to feel stuck. I focus on balancing an understanding of these external influences while supporting you with specific tools to help you to react differently. Often this work begins by focusing on dismantling the disproportionate levels of guilt individuals have internalized which blocks their ability to change.

As human being, I know that life situations could be difficult to manage by our own. However, past traumas, bad relationships (toxic/domestic abuse), stress, divorces, financial struggles, mental health disorders, depression, grieves...DON"T have to determine our life moving forward. IT IS POSSIBLE to recover from those big stones that we find in our life path! I love to work with my clients from a healing/recovery perspective and none judgmental attitude to help them get a better quality of life.

There are seasons of our lives that are more challenging than others. Sometimes we are aware of the circumstances causing our distress. At other times we just feel stuck or uncertain. In these seasons we may experience unrelenting anxiety, feelings of despair, intrusive and disruptive thoughts, an increase of conflict in our relationships, the development or increase of harmful behaviors, or all of the above. Getting support from a therapist can provide a relational space where self-awareness can deepen, emotional healing can occur, relationships can be repaired, and meaning can be made.

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.

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.

Welcome! Benjamin Franklin said there were only two things certain in life: death and taxes. I would add a third certainty: change. Change is difficult for most people; even positive change can stir up anxious feelings in us. But change can also be freeing, exhilarating and something to be embraced. I hope to help you on your change journey. I work with adults (age 18 and up) on all types of life stage challenges and transitions and the mental health difficulties those changes often bring.

My ideal client is someone who wants to learn what drives their feelings and behavior in all aspects of their life. Do you have feelings or experiences that interferes with contentment in your life? Do you have difficulty with relationships, or struggle with self-worth? Are you someone who is looking to learn and grow, wanting a life that feels manageable? Whatever is troubling you, we will begin with learning self awareness and gaining a better understanding of your own behavior.

**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.”

We've all got demons. Are yours running your life? Are you tired of being a victim of your thoughts and feelings? You've come to the right place. Many of us develop strategies to cope with life's challenges that become so automatic, we have trouble changing them when they're no longer serving us. Changing the way we engage with our thoughts and feelings requires self-awareness, education, and support. I'm here to provide you with all three: tools to increase self-awareness, knowledge to help you understand yourself better, and a supportive, non-judgmental presence to be an anchor for you throughout your healing process.
