Often times, individuals get stuck in the “mud” of life. Sometimes mud is past trauma, various experiences, mental health concerns, and grief. My goal in working with individuals is to find acceptance in the mud in order to live a more fulfilling life. While I specialize in some populations more than others, I find that creating a strong therapeutic relationship is paramount. You are more important than a diagnosis. I tend to connect well with individuals who are in stages of change, difficulty connecting with emotions, interpersonal concerns, difficulty with setting boundaries, and wanting to develop coping skills.

Stress can be very painful and impact every aspect of our lives. When we experience profound stress - from our relationships, our jobs, mental or physical illness or chronic pain - the world can seem a hostile place. This intensifies if we have histories of trauma. The result: a deep sense of disconnection. We feel cut off from our own internal intelligence and alienated from the people and things we love. Some people also struggle with addiction or other behaviors that add to suffering. The good news: stress can't destroy the core of who you are. Your vitality and wisdom are there for you to reclaim.

I believe that all humans deserve to live a life that gives them personal fulfillment, peace, and more joy than hardship. I can help you work through life transitions, trauma, and all of the fear, anxiety, depression, and big emotions that come with them. I tend towards practices of mindfulness, grounding, acceptance, and nature- focused therapies, but my background is in biology, so I also tend to be pragmatic, evidence-focused, and like to help you understand the "why" of the practice as you take it on.

Have you ever wondered "why am I still stuck despite all the work I've done?" Do you ever feel trapped, repeating the same cycles and stories over and over again, no matter what you "heal" or "fix"? If you’re anything like me, you built your life around being easy to get along with. You are selfless, and helpful. Your reputation is book-ended on performing under pressure and managing on a shoestring. You hide your vulnerable bits under your general competence, a thick armor of humor, and always being there for everyone else. But underneath all that, you doubt yourself. A LOT!

We are living in unprecedented times. Individually and collectively, we face pandemic threat, environmental losses, social unrest, economic instability and isolation. Compounding the problem, many of us are separated from the resources that in normal times were there to support and sustain us. While we manage to go about our day-to-day, additional stress may cause increased anxiety, irritability, depression, hopelessness, relational conflict and overwhelm. Addictive and harmful coping behaviors can creep into our lives, serving to further de-resource us. If we have had past trauma, then stress can be further heightened.

I believe all people have an inherent ability to find a path to healing, and that sometimes we need support along that path. Support can come in many ways and I believe our work can be one of them.

My way of working is warm, connected and compassionate. I have a spiritual and practical focus.

Where is the joy? What is the point in life if we work so hard but feel miserable? Who am I? Today we are more active and busy than ever, yet we have no time to just be. We lose touch with our faith, our emotions, our deepest, most natural needs. Through this separation from God we grow despondent, depressed, and isolated. It is time to reconnect to God and start living a Christ centered life. There is hope, you can regain your happiness and learn how to take care of yourself. We can begin to open up, share our emotions, and learn how to cope with negative feelings. Everything you need can be found in reconnecting to your faith.

Hello! I offer Play Therapy Intensives for children, teens, and adults! Intensive means multiple sessions in a short time period and they provide the opportunity to integrate a challenge faster, to learn ways to regulate/self-sooth, and to re-pattern the nervous system. Intensives are effective at reducing “externalizing behaviors.” Those are behaviors such as hitting, defiance, angry outbursts, impulsiveness, cheating, or destroying property. Play therapy intensives have also been shown to help those who are struggling with anxiety and depressive symptoms, those who are hypervigilant, always moving, or show little or no emotion.

Maybe you’ve asked yourself what’s wrong with you. Maybe you're are at a crossroads. You’re overwhelmed and trying your best, but the pressure is huge. Sometimes our usual ways of coping stop working or aren't giving us what we need anymore. This can affect us through tension in our work and home, tiredness, or worry about ourselves and what's next. My favorite clients are those who are seeking greater self-understanding and acceptance, are wanting closer relationships, and who want to explore new ways of approaching life. I like helping clients work outside of the boxes they arrive in and believe in themselves, one step at a time.

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

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, 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.

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 or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

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.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

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.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online 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.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
