I provide treatment for depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and trauma-related concerns to adults 18+ through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Narrative Therapy theoretical orientations. I believe past experiences and the stories people have told themselves from these experiences shape their present way of thinking and behaving in the world around them. I collaborate with my clients to examine their unhelpful thoughts and narratives and develop adaptive coping mechanisms to manage their mental health concerns.

For the past 20 years, I have worked with families, couples, adults , and adolescents. Using cognitive-behavioral theory with narrative techniques, I help empower clients to explore areas within their lives that present challenges and inhibit change, and assist them with finding solutions that will work for them. However, I also believe that the therapeutic relationship is a vital component within any program, which means that I believe that any work needs to be collaborative between myself and my clients. I am certified to deliver trauma-focused treatments as well as providing services to help manage stress and anxiety.

I believe throughout our lives, from childhood to adulthood there are circumstances that cause us to lose sight of our true authentic self. I value taking time to develop a therapeutic relationship based on trust, compassion and acceptance. My sessions are casual, with a playful caring approach with sensitivity and genuine understanding. When working with children, I like to use play based techniques and movement to assist in regulation while discussing stressful topics. I work with children, teens, young adults , families and adults of all ages.

Finding expert help to sort out whether a person has an autism spectrum condition/disorder can be difficult, often involving long wait lists for children and youth. It may be difficult to find someone who understands how to diagnose people at your age, for adults , or in your particular situation. Most people wondering about whether autism or other neurodivergence describes them or a loved one want answers now so that they can move forward toward achieving their life goals with greater understanding of their own, unique strengths and challenges.

Chocolate, snowboarding, and shopping can be therapeutic, but sometimes they're not enough. I see teenagers, adults , and families when struggles get in the way of fun and suffering becomes too familiar. Friends and family hopefully are there when we need them, yet therapists can provide additional essentials: nonjudgmental, individual attention in a safe setting. Relationships are central to our well-being, and the therapy process involves building a relationship. Clients lead, and I listen to your goals and help you to identify unhealthy patterns, reduce negative self-talk, and learn more about how you view yourself and the world.

Let's suppose you met your divine self at this very moment! Your divine self is the one that expresses your soul's light through words, thoughts, actions, and all that you are within. What would your divine self say about having the opportunity to explore some of the experiences that may have caused a tornado within, maybe, even a feeling of being lost. You matter and you are important. I believe in you and I want to show you that, but, I would like to give you a brief background about me and my work first.

My practice specializes in working with adults and young adults .
Our minds condition the quality of every moment of our lives—therapy is uniquely suited to positively engaging with our minds. And of course, our minds are not just our minds; they are our bodies, our relationships, our cultures, our society, our work, our past, our future, our imagination, as well as our thoughts and feelings. Therapy can interface with all of these parts of us, and help us to integrate them, nourishing our life.

I am a licensed clinical social worker with 13 years of experience providing effective therapy services to adults of all ages, from various circumstances and backgrounds.
Our experiences determine the way our minds process information. Our minds control how we feel, act, react and interact. Seeking out a professional for help with your thoughts, feelings, behaviors and relationships is smart. People aren’t born knowing how to manage traumatic experiences, stress, overwhelming thoughts and feelings and all of the other unpredictable events that take place in life. You’re not doing anything wrong. You just may not have the knowledge, tools or perspective you need. I’m here to help. Need to talk through a problem but don't want insurance involved?

Does going out in public with your child feel like an impossible task? Do you feel guilt over your child's meltdowns or teen's isolation? Do you feel like doctors, teachers, and other adults just don't get it? Do you worry about their safety? Are you overcome with guilt looking at other families on Facebook and Instagram? Parents want to feel like things are under control; that your family can be happy and have productive evenings, and that your child can transition to school and activities, feel confident, have friendships, and like themselves.

What type of Madison mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Madison?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
