Therapy is often a stigmatized term that causes many people to shy away from seeking out any additional support. But when you are feeling overwhelmed, overworked, tired and completely alone there is little that will have the same impact as proper support. Whether facing depression, anxiety, relationship stress or that unknown feeling that takes over every part of you therapy can help even if it is simply gaining an outside perspective. By working on the underlying feelings you will find a sense of peace in a sea of chaos.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions about what you may need or specialties that I have. I am happy to provide you with the support and guidance needed to make true long lasting changes in your life.

If I was looking for a therapist, I would want someone approachable, supportive, nurturing, empathic, and who has experience. I would also want someone with a sense of humor and a personable and human side. A therapist should also challenge me to see things or act in a different way to better myself and my life. Most of all, it needs to be a good fit, and that ultimately is a personal and subjective decision that clients need to make on their own.

I believe that people have at least some knowledge about the problem or reason that brings them to therapy and also have in their possession a bag of tricks necessary to live the life that they want to live.

I see my role as helping my clients look at the problem, unearth their individual skills and abilities, and try on the possibility that could be the life that they want to live.

Your anxiety is like an opponent who knows you well, and is skilled at keeping you stuck. When you have anxiety or OCD, what feels like the right thing to do usually makes us feel even worse in the long-term. I will help you gain insight into the ways anxiety is misleading you and teach you methods to gain the upper hand. There are so many different helpful tools, such as learning mindfulness skills to step outside of negative thinking spirals, changing the way you experience uncomfortable sensations in your body, and practicing ways to empower yourself by gently and systematically facing your fears. I have years of experience helping people overcome their anxious suffering. In addition to working with hundreds of clients, I have published research on anxiety treatment in peer-reviewed journals and have attended numerous workshops, conferences, and trainings. In our work together, you’ll gain a deep understand of the brain’s role in maintaining your anxiety symptoms, and how to access parts of your brain that will promote healing and relief. You’ll learn how to change your relationship with worry, panic, and anxiety for good, so they no longer hold you back from living the life that you want.

I am delighted to spend 10 to 15 minutes on the phone discussing your issues and deciding if I am a good fit for you. If we decide to have a session I normally start with an evaluation. During this time we can both decide whether I am the best person to provide the services for you. During our first session, we will get to know each other and talk about what you might like to accomplish in therapy. It is also important that you “ check me out“, and ask me about anything you need to know so that your decision to work with me is as informed as possible.

Trauma can be obvious, such as a car accident, the sudden death of a loved one, or being involved in a natural disaster. Other traumas are more subtle, such as emotional abuse, bullying, or even memories from early childhood that you are unable to freely recall. If you are suffering from feelings of inadequacy, low self-worth, anxiety, depression, difficulty connecting with others, or achieving your goals, you may be suffering from trauma-related symptoms. I offer EMDR (with art therapy incorporated if desired), for effective and efficient treatment to support alleviating these symptoms and helping you live a more fulfilled life.

I offer a trauma assessment and EMDR treatment to support processing past trauma (including chronic and childhood traumas) and grief & loss that may be causing current distress, unhappiness, negative thoughts about one's self or abilities, and a lack of personal fulfillment. I would be honored to support you in your journey to recovering from past challenges so that you can live the life you have imagined.
