I am passionate about seeing my clients meet their goals and discover a sense of positive self-esteem and confidence. I believe everyone should have the skills to meet future endeavors they want and deserve, however I also know past issues can sometimes be barrier to this. I have been in the counseling field for over 13 years, working both in agency and private practice. I have extensive experience working with children and adolescents from ages 3 to 18 years old, and dealing in areas of anxieties, depression, suicide, anger management, gender identities, and the list goes on. I also have a great deal of experience in working with adolescents, adults and their family who are dealing with addictions and substances use. I have worked with all ages in areas of trauma and PTSD symptoms as well as those with Bipolar and Borderline Personalities. I tailor treatment to meet each client’s needs rather than a one-size fit all approach.

You may be wondering what therapy is like, and if you’ve never been to therapy it may feel foreign, but it is really an experience in personal growth. Everyone has challenges, but therapy can help you get beyond life issues that are draining your energy. If you have gone to therapy, you know that a good therapist joins you in that journey and provides the support needed to make life choices manageable and change negative patterns causing dissatisfaction in your life.

My approach to helping is to validate your strengths and maximize your ability to positively cope through life challenges. I work with individuals, couples, families and children, and provide the support needed to create healing. I use whatever tools are acceptable to my clients so they feel a part of the healing process.

Hello. Welcome to exploring new possibilities. Do you wake up worrying about the same things every day and wonder “Why do I feel this way?” Have you tried to make changes in your life, only to find you fall back into repeating old patterns? Do you isolate, feel shame, lonely, and disconnected from people, places and things that used to be pleasurable? Do you feel confused and have a hard time making decisions? Maybe you feel lost or physically and mentally exhausted?

We all experience a myriad of challenges throughout life. Let me help you identify your strengths and resilience despite the adversity you are experiencing. Learning to master thoughts and emotions helps us feel strong and empowered in body and mind.

“All roads lead to Rome”. I’m sure you have heard that expression. It’s one I use a lot in my sessions. It means different paths can take one to the same goal. There are many reasons for wanting to get into therapy. There are many forms of therapy that lead to healing, and there are many different understandings of what “healing” means. To me, healing is mostly about becoming one with ourselves, maybe for the first time.

My specialization in therapy is trauma and addiction. Often, a common road to addictions is having a history of trauma. A goal in healing involves movement toward abstinence from the substance or process, reducing the internal pain that drives us away from ourselves and others, and learning how to safely rejoin ourselves and others.
