I work with adults and young adults (16+) to address challenges with suffering and experiential avoidance. I have experience supporting those with depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar disorder , and many other psychiatric conditions. I enjoy working with those who are willing to face their feelings and emotions, and to engage in meaningful living through committed action. I believe it is important to explore one's values to establish goals that are rich in purpose and direction. I encourage those I work with to ask themselves "what have I been through?" vs. "what is wrong with me?"

We often go to counseling when we are seeking something; whether it be healing, insight, peace within ourselves, healthy relationships, or a sense of wholeness in our lives and selves. Anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, experiences from our past, relationship struggles, and other emotional challenges may get in the way of our ability to find that which we seek. Identifying, understanding, and healing from that pain can help us to achieve an increased sense of contentment and peace within our lives, and increased ability to manage events and relationships that can often be difficult.

Feeling stuck, wanting to heal past wounds, or just curious about adding more knowledge to your mental health tool belt? Maybe you and I could work together. Life is tough. Life does not always go as predicted. Childhood can seem scattered, stressful, and full of high emotions. Events from childhood can creep into adulthood impacting daily life. Maybe it is time to process those files you have stored away and deeply heal.

Sometimes life shows up and we find ourselves in need of support, someplace where we can get grounded and find some perspective. My work is client-centered, working with what the individual brings to the session without a predetermined outcome. I take a holistic approach, understanding that we are the sum of a multitude of factors including our environment, experiences, culture, faith, core beliefs, and values. I do not pathologize, meaning you’re not defined by your diagnosis. Instead, I emphasize your own inherent health, guiding you to develop and achieve skills to improve the quality of your life.

Growing up is hard and it’s completely normal to need a little help along the way. I believe that addressing mental health and behavioral concerns at a young age can help kids to prosper and grow into healthy adults. I offer kids and teens a safe place to express themselves, process whatever it is they are experiencing in their world, and someone who will listen without any judgements or biases. My focus is to teach kids and teens skills they can use to cope with their symptoms and be successful in whatever they choose to do. I also help parents learn skills to improve communication and their relationship with their kid/teen.

Many times in our lives we believe that overcoming obstacles is like attempting the impossible. We continue to feel lonely, make the same mistakes, and have the same fears, self- doubts that eventually cause us to believe that life will always be the same. Counseling can assist you in making the changes that you desire in your life. Providing you the opportunity to explore new avenues in which you might not have believed before. This journey may not be easy; however, it is one that can bring out the change you have been longing for.

Bipolar Disorder Therapists

What is the most successful approach to treating bipolar disorder?

Living with bipolar disorder can be challenging, and a number of therapies have been found effective in providing support to patients as they gain the skills to understand and manage the disorder. Family-focused therapy is often helpful for children and teens (the majority of cases develop before age 19); it aims to minimize mood cycling by improving family communication and reducing conflict. It also helps young people navigate the developmental challenges the disorder can create. Cognitive and behavioral therapy (CBT) and variants such as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) help patients manage the thoughts and feelings that influence bipolar mood swings as well as develop specific behavioral strategies to counteract them.

What happens in therapy for bipolar disorder?

Because the patterns of mood switching and its triggers differ for each person and can change over time, mood tracking or monitoring becomes a basic way patients learn about the nature of their condition. One of the most common features of therapy is finding a workable method of mood monitoring, in which patients track their daily activities and rate their moods, then use the findings to adjust routines accordingly. Patients learn ways of handling the many stresses that arise in life so that they do not trigger mood swings.

What kinds of problems does therapy help with?

Like many other mental health disorders, BPD is heavily influenced by stress; therapy provides skills for coping with stressors of all kinds. Therapy is extremely important for helping individuals identify the situations that may trigger mood switching, so that mood swings can be prevented. Therapy may especially target recognition of the early stages of mood change so that they can be managed. In addition, therapy helps patients deal with the significant amount of turbulence the disorder can create in relationships and in work life.

What is the goal of therapy for bipolar disorder?

Therapy helps patients set up their lives to maintain stability so that their mood isn’t constantly threatened by daily events. Perhaps the first task of therapy is to educate people about the nature of the disorder. At the same time, a primary goal of therapy is to enhance adherence to drug treatment. Extended periods of mood stability can prompt patients to discontinue medication, triggering relapse, while the early phases of manic episodes can feel so energizing that patients stop medication, ushering in full-blown mania and the altered self-perception that can lead to destructive behaviors. Another major goal of therapy is to understand one’s mood patterns so as to minimize both the frequency and intensity of mood cycling.
