The common denominator in virtually all of my clients' struggles and problems is the lack of relationship with Self.

The relationship with your Self is the most important relationship. It's the “X-factor” for empowerment, change through awareness and action, and what makes transformation possible.

The common denominator in virtually all of the problems and symptoms that bring people to therapy is relationships, past and current and there is a prevailing lack of knowhow to boot.

Most of the relationships I work come in are mired in discord and disconnection due to the backlog of unexpressed feelings and unresolved issues that never get any airtime and a palpable wedge of mistrust and unsafety between them

Relationships are as good as the conversations had. Can you talk to each other? How much do you talk to each other? What can you talk about? But, more importantly, how well do they understand each other and feel in the process.

Usually the first conversation I facilitate and one you can expect to have, one I consider to be perhaps the most standard and basic one every couple needs to be able to have is, How are you feeling in the relationship and towards each other?

I create a safe space for you to begin having these ‘more difficult’ conversations and facilitate a process that ensures that you talk and listen to each other in a way, and about things, you never did before.

One of the founding principles of my practice and my own therapeutic style is that emotion and rationality are not necessarily separate ideals, but rather that they assist each other to help a person make wise decisions. This principle can apply to as little a thing as what to eat for breakfast or as large a thing as what career to follow or who to marry or what choices to help your children make.

While therapy can be a humbling concept and often a difficult process, it also reaps great rewards. I enjoy seeing my clients make progress. As your therapist, I hope to assist you on your journey to live a happier and more peaceful life.

While my methods are grounded in evidence-based practices, my style is unique, down-to-earth and non-traditional. I'm also realistic, charismatic and compassionate. I apply humor when necessary and take great pride in challenging you to rise to your own occasion. Being able to step back and take an observational view of your life and consider a different perspective is integrated into my practice and a large part of what excites me about this work. I'll collaborate with you to get where you want to be in a way that makes the most sense to you.

I want to help you realign your head and heart in order to trust your intuition. Doing this allows you to live your life from a strength-based deep understanding of yourself, propelling you toward achieving self-actualization! You already have the characteristics, tools, and passion you need for everything you want, we may just need to make a few adjustments to rejuvenate those qualities or go even deeper to heal pain from past trauma.

Wether you're here to heal primarily or using our time to catapult you to your greatest heights, I'm looking forward to taking that journey with you.

I believe that we are alive to experience joy and do incredible things based on our unique genius. Seeking support around vulnerable areas in your life takes courage and change is uncomfortable. But growth is a necessary part of our individual evolution and something that we all have the inherent ability to do. The most important factor in successful therapy is the fit between the client and therapist. Trust your intuition and take a leap of faith that you, like every human, deserve to prosper and be at peace.

Welcome! I know how daunting it can be to select a therapist and start this process in general, and I commend you for taking this important step for your child or yourself. I love working with older children, teens and adults who may be struggling with depression, anxiety, phobias, self-esteem issues or relationship difficulties. I strive to provide a warm and safe environment in which we can explore, process, and deeply understand your experience, identify treatment goals and learn new strategies for coping with difficulties. My ultimate goal is to promote personal growth and help you or your child internalize our work so that you have the tools to overcome future obstacles in addition to the current ones.

If it sounds like I may be a good fit for you or your family, I welcome you to request a free phone consultation so that we can learn more about each other and determine next steps.

CORE VALUES EXPLAINED:

Self-Awareness Is The Cornerstone Of Living A True & Connected Life - Discovering your true self, is mental exercise. Sometimes, you get a better workout when you have a trainer in the gym with you. I consider myself the trainer. I bring the exercise plan & encourage you.

The Science Of Psychology Should Be Applied With Compassion & In Trust - My practice is clinical my personality is not. The relationship I develop with my clients is equally as important as the best practices, psychological modalities & principles of neuroscience I apply. I pack a full load of compassion in my professional tool bag. Without it, we cannot develop rapport & trust. Ultimately, trust fuels the most powerful work we will do together.

Wellness Is Physical, Emotional, Intellectual & Spiritual - I believe wellness is the hum of the 4 basic human needs working in alignment with your true self. Wellness is achieved when all 4 elements are playing the same song. I named my practice Village Counseling & Wellness because my goal is to help clients achieve wellness.

Humans Are Inherently Resilient-We Grow When Our Mindset Is Effectively Grounded - There's a disconnect in this technologically connected world. People tend to hide behind facades like perfect, important, smart/ busy. We need to strip away these facades & be more mindful everyday in order to be our best selves. We need to ground ourselves in reality, know our strengths & fuel our fire with self-belief.

Ample + Rooted is an inclusive therapy practice and we believe it is our birthright to inhabit, trust and honor our physical and emotional selves without shame. We believe in cultivating a healing home for the whole you and that this healing and belonging is profoundly vital in creating a more equitable and just world. We believe compassion, pleasure and embodiment lead the way toward healing and liberation.

Our work is rooted in relational therapy: We believe the most powerful aspect of therapy lies within relationships, including the one between client and therapist. While many therapists practice a hands-off approach, you're more likely to find us engaging you in the kind of deep, personal work we've seen lead to true healing and growth. It's work that begins with a genuine, respectful and trusting relationship – and the understanding that each of us is the foremost expert in ourselves.

We cultivate a safe and welcoming space of compassion and connection. Our practice is rooted in Health at Every Size®, Body Trust®, fat-positive, sex-positive, LGBTQ+ affirming, harm reduction, trauma-informed, and anti-oppressive frameworks. We are poly and kink affirming and allied with those engaged in sex work.

The name of our practice grew out of the belief that each of us is whole and beautiful as we are; that it is our birthright to inhabit, trust and honor our physical selves without shame; and all that we need to learn, heal and grow is already inside of us. We are bountiful. We are expansive. We are ample.

Our therapy practice promotes connection within ourselves and with one another. It is a space, whether experienced virtually or in person, for becoming grounded in ourselves and the greater world. Here, we are connected. We are mindful. We are rooted.

We are Ample + Rooted.

My aim as a therapist is to give you a space so you can break the patterns that are holding you back. I believe that people often operate from the basis of their story: what has happened in their lives and what they know and how they feel. I will help you understand your collection of experiences of thoughts and feelings in order to assist you in reaching goals, and essentially, to get where you want to go. I will do my best to understand you, and I am willing to laugh or cry with you - especially laugh. If you are seeking healing and longing, I am here to help.

I offer individual counseling, teletherapy, walk and talk sessions, and equine assisted psychotherapy/learning (EAP/L) sessions. I'm not your typical therapist, I'm going laugh with you, make bad puns, and give you homework - but through it all I will keep you accountable and adapt our sessions to meet your needs and keep it as fun as possible.

My love language is quality time and my main values in life are connected relationships and community. That translates into how I believe the most critical step in a therapeutic relationship is establishing a good rapport - that way you can feel comfortable to get out the things you have been holding you back. Give me a call and see if it is a good fit.
