I am Here to Listen and Make a Difference
My passion is to work with individuals who have a variety of needs, including those who struggle with depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem and self-worth. I specialize in working with couples who struggle with relationship issues. I enjoy providing premarital, marital, and family counseling to couples and families who experience conflict which may be due to communication problems, blended family issues, and/or relational trauma.
My education and experience enables me to offer effective outpatient, individualized, psychological care. I treat a variety of mental health disorders, and provide a neutral environment to individuals, families, and couples who seek restoration and growth. I am a Certified Prepare/Enrich Facilitator.
My focus is helping individuals to heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. I achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to all concerns, and customizing a treatment plan that is mutually goal oriented. From here, we work together.
I promise to be here for you through every step of your journey. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, to help you heal from your pain, and to support you as you move forward in the direction you want to go in your life.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, I thrive in helping you recover the motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Many individuals experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances or loss. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are just a few of the emotions which may linger post traumatic events. I am passionate about helping you overcome these symptoms, gaining coping skills, and guiding you through this process of grief and healing.
Relationship counseling is often beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, as well as those who have with deeper wounds that require more strategic intervention and healing. Relational disconnection may be experienced throughout and all stages of a relationship.
Therapy sessions for relationship concerns are communicated in a supportive, safe environment in order to promote heathly resolutions and positive outcomes to these issues and concerns.
A high percentage of families are "blended families". This often brings unique challenges, insecurities, and a wide range of emotions. The Parents loyalties and boundaries are tested by attention-seeking behavior, rebellion, anxiety, lower grades in school, and are territorial. These concerns place relational stress throughout the new family system.
I enjoy the privilege of working with these families. I have empathy, experience, and professional wisdom to help these families. I will help them bridge gaps, resolve conflicts, foster willingness and gain common ground with mutual respect. I will hold hope -- until your family holds hope of being a unified and connected family.
It is not uncommon to have family conflict. Living with the same people 24/7 will often be the opportunity that brings the worst out in people. There are different personalities who process conflict differently. Some avoid, some escape, and others chase it head on with no ability to back away until the conflict is resolved.
Together we will work on the issues at hand, and we will also lift the lid, peel it back and see what's underneath that is contributing to the surface concerns. We will work to resolve conflict, repair attachment injuries, and gain a pattern of communication that is mutually respectful and effective. Additionally, we will find coping skills to assist with individuals/family.
