"Maturity is not the absence of struggle, but struggling well" said author and psychologist Larry Crabb. As a counselor I desire to safely engage with clients' stories-which include both joy and struggle-and work together towards hopeful and lasting change. With over 20 years' experience helping people improve relationships and marriages, confront depression and anxiety, or face emotional and mental health issues, I strive to help clients pursue personal growth and relational integrity as they face life's challenges.

We offer a variety of techniques to guide you into creating a pathway to healing and a direction that feels increasingly aligned with your own sense of inner core purpose. Over the years of counseling others, I have developed a specialty in working with depression , codependency issues, dual diagnosis & survivors of abuse. Since relocating to the area in 1999, I have been focusing on working with individuals, families, couples and groups. I lead two therapeutic support groups for women. (Please review group tabs for details.) I am also a dance/movement therapist offering a creative alternative on the therapeutic path.

“Midway along the journey of our life I woke to find myself in a dark wood, for I had wandered off from the straight path." This sentence encapsulates the feelings many clients bring to therapy, the culmination of years of existential angst, an accumulation of guilt, anxiety, loss, among a myriad of other experiences which have inflicted pain and suffering. My experience working with clients in exploring their unique symptoms, be it depression , anxiety, etc., is to not rush headlong into an immediate remedy of the symptoms, rather the exploration of how these symptoms may be trying to inform in new ways of approaching life.

I have an eclectic style and use a number of techniques to address a broad range of psychiatric symptoms including anxiety, depression , trauma and abuse history, borderline and narcissistic personality disorders.
My goal as a therapist is to help clients who are having difficulty in our fast-paced environment dealing with life’s stressors related to marriages/partnerships, families, friendships, social isolation, employment and finances. I provide a safe place where clients know they can share in a confidential environment without judgment. All of us have negative thoughts. Realizing that we are more than our thoughts, though, can be truly liberating and allow a person to live a full and meaningful life, even when faced with struggles that may seem impossible to overcome.

My professional concentration has been in the areas of: domestic violence, relationship issues, depression , anxiety, sexual abuse, PTSD, OCD, "transitional issues" and problem gambling.
My approach in counseling is somewhat holistic and eclectic. I believe a supportive counseling environment works to help a client achieve awareness, thus leading to healing and personal growth. My role is to help clients explore their emotional needs and provide feedback. Hopefully, the value will be realized in both behavioral and emotional changes. Under all circumstances, my mission is to treat the client with the utmost regard and honor the human condition as it is. Counseling hours are available most days at your convenience. Often clients are able to schedule an appointment with 24 hours of calling my office.

My clients are individuals who have experienced a loss, and are often in a transition in their lives. Depression , anxiety, trauma, death, miscarriage, infertility, addiction related-loss, suicide-related loss, divorce, or surprise DNA results are a few of the hurdles my clients are experiencing. In times like these, life can feel disorienting and it may be hard to know which direction is up. My approach to therapy is to help you sort out the goodness and strengths already within you to encourage introspection and confidence. Identifying your values, we will work together to make life more manageable again.

You knew that marriage was going to be hard, but this is ridiculous! It’s not supposed to be THIS hard. There’s just too much bickering, irritability, and frustration. And when you fight—all bets are off and anything goes. It takes days of silence before you recover. You wanted a relationship that eased your burdens, not make life more complicated. You worry that you will stop liking each other. And you will lose the love. But deep down, you really want this to work. You want a closer, deeper relationship. There's hope: you don't have to live this way. You CAN have a great relationship.

Do you feel like you are struggling to understand your child? Perhaps your child is struggling at home, school, or other social environments? I specialize in helping children find their voice to effectively communicate and help bridge the parent child relationship. Parenting doesn't come with an instruction manual and can often become overwhelming. Through our work together I can help build the confidence needed to navigate the difficult situations often faced by both children and parents today. I connect with children by using play therapy, expressive arts, and other developmentally appropriate interventions.

The journey to be your best self is too important to take alone. So it would be my pleasure to help guide you to a better, clearer tomorrow – mentally, physically, and emotionally. My approach as a psychotherapist is one of understanding where you are now, and then working together to reach the place you desire to be. We’ve all walked a unique life path and had different experiences that shaped us, so my approach is not cookie-cutter at all. I believe in hope, inspiration, and the power of the individual. We are stronger than we realize, but the key to mental clarity and emotional well-being sometimes remains elusive.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
