From the seeds of our difficulties, we can grow stronger.

A little about me... I am a supportive, compassionate, pragmatic therapist who focuses on understanding your difficulties, uncovering your strengths and finding what works to make today better and instill hope for tomorrow. 

 

We all struggle, but we do not have to struggle alone. Sometimes bravery isn't anything more than showing up and tackling life's challenges. Highs and lows are a normal part of life but if feeling low has become the norm, hope and relief are possible. Prioritize your health, well-being and live the life you deserve.

I work with individuals using an integrative approach to care using strengths you already have and adding new ones to get you to where you want to be. I am first and foremost focused on you, then pulling from solid methods I have trained in like EMDR, the Gottman method, Somatic Experiencing, Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral therapy (DBT), and more, I apply what I know, paired with what you know about yourself and your difficulties to find ways to improve your life and functioning.

Our difficulties do not have to define us. Are you going through a challenging life transition? Are job, family or relationship issues weighing on you? Is anxiety or depression overwhelming you? Do you have a deep sense that you are missing out on the life you are supposed to have?

I work with clients to uncover their strengths and develop skills to live and feel better. Every person is an individual and therapy and counseling must be tailored to the individual and where they are in the moment. I work with clients to help uncover what they want from their lives and relationships, and then help them work toward that.

 

If you are considering counseling as a way to grow, overcome your current challenges or just live and feel better, I am available for a no cost, no obligation phone consultation to listen to what you need and determine how I might assist you.

Individual therapy can be short-term, focusing on resolving a specific issue, or it can be more ongoing, working on identifying and resolving longer-term patterns that are not serving you.

Couples therapy can be useful to address specific issues in your relationship or even help learn and practice skills to navigate partnership in a more fulfilling way.
