Though I am committed to helping people with all manner of personal challenges, I am particularly adept at helping people suffering from depression/anxiety, clients confronting women's issues, and couples therapy.
All people experience problems and at times we all need someone that we can trust to assist us with those challenges. As a therapist, my approach is accepting, empathetic, and flexible, and I strive to form a relationship with my clients that is built on trust and respect. I believe in working collaboratively with my clients, together identifying the growth and change that they desire for their lives. I work to help my clients uncover their internal resources and strengths and expand their understanding of their experiences in order to empower them to make the changes that they desire.

I also enjoy working with those dealing with adoption issues, women's issues and faith issues.
It is my hope that clients gain from counseling specific tools they can apply to their lives to feel better equipped in dealing effectively with their life circumstances. I tailor my counseling to the needs of the client, using various therapeutic techniques to provide clients skills such as communication, emotion management, coping, parenting, etc. I incorporate an educational component, presenting information to enhance knowledge regarding various issues that clients face. I often include homework to make use of the time between sessions. When desired by the client, I approach their circumstances from a biblical perspective.

Life is difficult (M. Scott Peck). I remember reading that in his book and thought yes, it is! And sometimes we don’t have the tools to manage the difficult times or move through and beyond them. That is why I became a therapist because life is difficult and sometimes, we need support and help to move forward. My goal is to establish a safe environment where adults and children can take the time to process difficulties in life. Through this process you will find your strengths, develop new ways of coping and discover new insights.

'Hope' (noun): To desire with expectation of obtainment or fulfillment; to expect with confidence. What do you hope for? I think deep down we all hope for similar things; peace, joy, love, excitement, and fulfilling relationships. When we experience depression, anxiety, trauma, stressful life circumstances, parenting challenges or relationship difficulties we can end up feeling hopeless and alone. My goal as a therapist is to help you rediscover your hopes and dreams and make a plan to achieve them! I will do this by providing a safe space to process what has gotten in your way and helping you identify what changes can be made.

Therapy is a place to explore, grow and develop the skills necessary to navigate life’s challenges. Why put on a false front in life? Why smile on the outside when you can’t smile on the inside? Each day may feel like a struggle or feel like there is a cloud over your head. I specialize in anxiety, depression and mood disorders, and understand that our behaviors are a direct result of internal issues. Let me help you feel like you can cope with life again and give you a congruent feeling.

Everyday family life has ups and downs. Families may expect transitions and challenges adapting. Yet, there are times when individuals and families find they have become stuck, bogged down, exhausted, entangled with a particular issue or a lap full of complex circumstances and stressors. In my role as a therapist and human being, I look forward to working with individuals and families (all shapes, sizes, and combinations of relationships) in discovery, exploration, and use of their strengths and potentials to adapt, heal, grow, create and transform within and through what may seem impossible.

Many of us will experience anxiety, depression and other problems at some point in our lives. And, much of the time, the help of family or friends will be enough to get us through. Sometimes, however, the difficulties persist, causing stress and unhappiness at home and at work. If you are at this stage, then psychotherapy may be the best way forward.

With all that has been going on in the world lately, it can be difficult to feel like we have our feet under us again. We may feel like it is more difficult to cope and not quite sure what steps we can take to get ourselves back on track and moving forward. It all begins with our thinking and what we are telling ourselves about our circumstances, and our beliefs about what we are capable or deserving of. This influences every decision we make and how we meet every relationship and circumstance. I help people bring their thinking into alignment with what they want to create in their lives, and discover their capacity to do it.
