I have worked as a nurse in Pediatrics and Family Medicine.
Deciding to come to counseling is a first step toward improving lives. I can help with anxiety, depression, coping skills, communication, and transitions. Talking to someone who can see things from an outside perspective can help you determine how to improve what is not working in your life, set goals, and learn new skills which will move you toward that goal.

Each of us is situated within various systems and cultures ( family , job, church, etc.
I know how much strength it requires to make the decision to seek a therapist. It’s important to make time for mental self-care just like you would schedule a workout or physical. Sometimes we all need a little extra help or an outside perspective. My goal is that you will feel welcomed, accepted, and validated by being your true self with me. If you are seeking to heal toxic patterns or to implement positive changes toward new growth, I provide a non-judgmental, safe place for you to explore the changes that are healthiest and doable for you. I am a skilled listener who offers unconditional positive regard, compassion and hope.

Whether "you" are an individual, couple or family , I am always honored to get to know you and help facilitate the emergence of your unique core self which lies ready to be seen, known and fully lived.
No matter how straight & smooth we try to make it, life is, by nature a crooked line & a bumpy road! Depression, anxiety, grief, trauma...all by-products of living life. Fortunately, we are hard-wired for health; drawn to people & situations that foster our transformance. However, we develop coping/protective mechanisms that hinder that innate tendency to thrive. We create stories about ourselves & the world that keep us scared & isolated. Therapy is the sacred and confidential space in which these, up until now, forbidden feelings, self-thoughts, memories can be carefully, sensitively and intentionally brought forth into the light.

I utilize compassion-focused therapy, CBT, emotionally-focused individual therapy (EFIT), and internal family systems (IFS) approaches.
Finding a therapist who respects us is crucial. Having another person who understands us is a basic human need. At times what we do and think do not create a happy life. We may feel isolated, focus on the "negative" and find ourselves feeling wretched. We may turn to substance use or other behaviors to cope with discomfort. You and I will discuss your unique situation, what your behaviors and thoughts may be doing for you, and how they may be hindering your sense of wellbeing. We'll explore how to achieve comfort, acceptance and happiness. I look forward to nurturing your confidence, your strength and your wisdom.

You're on-edge and having trouble concentrating. You feel restless and unable to stop overthinking. Maybe you're wanting to isolate to protect your friends and family from your sadness and anger. It's hard to continue pretending that everything is fine when you are feeling so desperate inside. You want to be able to enjoy life again, and you're seeking motivation to do the things you really want to do without it seeming like such hard work. You want to feel heard, seen, and understood. You would love to figure out your anxiety or depression—where it might be coming from and how to make it stop (or at least not be so intense).

" Areas of clinical focus are intimate relationships, including infidelity or intimacy/sexual issues, trauma recovery, family concerns, & eating disorders.
You want to break free from painful relationship issues, self-defeating behaviors, and just feeling "stuck." The wonderful thing about therapy is that it provides you with a sense of relief - with hope that things CAN get better - by giving you a safe, respectful and non-judgmental space to speak freely about what is troubling you, or what is painful in your relationship. I work to create a safe, respectful and supportive environment that alleviates feelings of aloneness, and facilitates connection, awareness, healing and positive change. You are not the problem; the issue is the problem.

If you are having difficulty coping with the loss of a loved one; have experienced sexual or other types of abuse; if you feel sad, anxious or worried most of the time; if you are having conflict in a personal, marital or family relationship; if you want to improve your parenting skills, or just want to learn how to manage stressful living, I can help you.
Serving as a minister and earning a PhD in Counseling Psychology equipped me to care for people in crises. Working with vulnerable children and their families or caregivers, also proved to be a valuable foundation for clinical care. In a medical academic setting, training residents in the use of spirituality and psychology as they cared for their patients, deepened my own understanding of just how complex clinical issues can become. This also increased my understanding of the level of stress healthcare providers and victims themselves experience during illness. This is especially relevant in the present COVID-19 environment.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
