Let's get started

I work with clients who are 9 years old and up through adulthood.  I enjoy working with clients who are ready to grow and improve their lives.  I have experience treating individuals with depression, anxiety, past trauma, suicidal thoughts as well as bipolar disorder.  I use a variety of therapy approaches but prefer to individualize sessions focusing on each client’s strengths so they can reach their full potential.

Counseling for Trauma

Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster. While many people can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed. In these circumstances, the support, guidance, and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.

Couples Counseling

Do you feel like your relationship is at a standstill? Are you and your partner stuck in the same argument loop every night? Do you feel like you and your partner are drifting away? Do you desire more intimacy between you and your partner? All things can be improved, changed and bettered, with just a little support, no matter how big or small. With couples therapy, you’ll learn how to communicate your feelings and needs, and get what you want out of your relationship. In my couple’s therapy sessions, I help people develop the necessary skills needed to maintain sustaining love.

EMDR

What is EMDR Therapy?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from different treatment approaches.

Family Counseling

Our family affects who we are and who we become, both for the better and for the worse. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us.

Anyone seeking healthier, closer family relationships can benefit from family therapy.

Suicidal Thoughts

Do you or a loved one have thoughts of harming or killing yourself? Do you struggle with these thoughts on a regular basis? If so, please know this is completely normal for people with depressive symptoms. With my experience in suicidal thoughts, I can help you or your loved one determine how severe the thoughts are, create a safety plan and decide if hospitalization is necessary.

Therapy for Depression

Are you feeling hopeless, isolated, and not your usual self?

Do these thoughts often enter your mind?

  • I am worthless and can’t do anything about it.
  • I feel guilty for just wanting to eat, sleep and be alone.
  • I hate who I am these days.
  • I can’t stop crying, which makes me want to stay away from others.
  • I feel gut-wrenching pain, but no one understands.
  • My life and the world around me are dark. I hate it, but I can’t change it.
