Offering daytime hours only. My therapeutic approach is strength-based, client-centered, and integrative with the belief that we have the innate ability to heal, grow, and seek greater meaning in life. I see each individual as unique, whole, and inherently good. I believe therapy is an interactive relationship between you and me. My approach prioritizes authenticity, trust, and empathy as the foundation for effective therapy. Our first step is defining what brought you to pursue counseling. Then, we will look at the the difficulties you are facing and collaborate on a plan that is specific and unique for your situation.

Self doubt, panic and shame make you feel numb and fill your thoughts. You want to stop feeling drained, overwhelmed and scattered. Four simple letters - s t o p, yet it isn’t so simple as just stopping. That is why you are here, you are ready to move forward. You are looking for a place to feel safe talking about what is weighing you down. It is time for you to be heard and understood so you can feel again.

Therapy is a place for healing, transformation, and growth. When working with children, teens, families, and adults, I strive to help them achieve their current goals. I offer psychoeducation, insight, and interventions with a client-centered approach. In other words, I meet my clients where they are in their life and work with them at their own pace. Specifically, I have experience working with anxiety, depression, trauma, self-injurious behaviors, suicidality, behavioral/ communication issues, and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.

I serve clients from a plethora of diverse backgrounds and situations; I enjoy learning about cultures, traditions, and customs! Our differences are our natural strengths; these differences don't separate us, they bring us closer together! With this perspective I enjoy working with clients that are looking, and ready, to embrace the challenges they are experiencing. Clients often encounter multiple obstacles that intersect with their past, present, and future selves. My goal is to deliver the appropriate treatment that is needed for clients to experience optimal relief.

Getting to the heart of intense emotions and changing the status quo can be frightening. Yet, so is the idea of remaining in a place that is no longer sustainable. You know it’s time to stop trying to fill that void with what is no longer working. It can be very difficult to step out of expectations and into your authentic self. The decision to seek professional therapy and create movement in your life says you are ready. Anxiety, depression, compulsive behaviors and negative relationship patterns can become so overwhelming that we feel distrust in everything, especially ourselves.

Therapy can be a difficult journey that calls for us to be truthful and vulnerable. This can be difficult for many to achieve due to past trauma, previous unhealthy interactions, or defense mechanisms that we have created in order to get to the next moment. For the first stage of therapy, I work with clients to establish safety and improve emotional regulation skills. This is important because we need to stay in control of our body’s reactions when talking about situations that have played an impact on our lives in order to obtain safety.

Somedays you feel like you have it in you, and other days there isn’t an ounce to give to others let alone yourself. You have worked so hard to do all the right things, yet inside you feel completely overwhelmed, alone, and inadequate. You’re comparing yourself to friends, family, and strangers. What you see is that they have it all together, and well let’s be honest you feel like you don’t. You may have even mastered the art of faking it till you make it. It’s time for that to change! You are hoping to feel more in control and capable of handling challenges that come at you.

People might come to therapy because they are dissatisfied with where they are in life, or they feel maddened and drained by intrusive thoughts, or pain and loss in all its forms makes life feel intolerable and meaningless.  Panic can make it diffuclt to focus. There might feel like an overwhelming amount of choices, and each choice with a host of pros and cons, with none of the choices standing out.  Or the feeling of being trapped makes it difficult to see any choice at all.   Often times it can feel as if time is working against us.  Navigating one's own lives can feel overwhelming.

Sometimes we need support with what has happened, what is happening in our lives now, or the uncertainty of what the future holds. Maybe you feeling deeply out of alignment with yourself, partners, children, or community. Our relationships to ourselves and each other is dynamic and can get messy. We find ourselves responding, feeling, and living in ways that don't serve us or the ones we love.

The therapeutic relationship should empower the individual to regain ownership of their life, shifting negative self-talk and other impacts of trauma; allowing for holistic healing and growth. It is my hope to actively walk alongside my client as they work to create their peace; ultimately gaining an improvement in positive self-awareness and optimism, with a side of lasting security and emotional health.

Not accepting new clients until April 2023- We are living through difficult times and many of us are becoming aware of the things in our lives that aren’t working for us any longer. Some of us may be impacted by old wounds that never had the chance to fully heal; some of us are realizing we aren’t living our lives in a way that aligns with how we want to live. We believe that every person has the capacity to heal and live a life of meaning and positive well-being but that often, many of us do not have the support or skills that we need to make changes in our lives.

Suffering the impacts of trauma, being entangled in a web of codependency, or sinking into stagnating depression, can cause marked distress and dysfunction in our daily lives. Sometimes our own attempts at self-medicating can further complicate matters. If we have experienced a significant loss, it may be hard to even imagine an end to the pain and it may be rather difficult to trust in any process of change. Fear and shame can often prevent us from reaching out, convincing us this is an unyielding fate.

When working with clients, my goal is to create a safe and empowering environment while working from a client-centered, strength-based approach. There is no best therapeutic intervention that fits everyone the same so I work with clients on an individual level to identify the best intervention for the person.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online or over the phone can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the United States, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist, psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
