Making the decision to get personal help isn't easy, and sometimes your past experiences have turned you away from speaking to people or reaching out for answers. It's important for me to build a trusting, nonjudgmental, respectful relationship with everyone that comes into my office. Change can and will happen if you feel safe and secure enough to open up and talk about your personal struggles.
I have worked with many individuals, teens, and couples on issues ranging from anxiety, inability to trust yourself or others, perfectionism, family problems, childhood trauma, unhealthy habits, feeling like you don't fit in, sexual/physical abuse or neglect, addiction issues and much more. In my work I've realized that people do the best they can at managing their problems, but keep repeating the same patterns and don't know how to change. After awhile you end up feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, confused, hopeless, and ashamed that your attempts are not working. These feelings are completely normal and I want to assure you that nothing is wrong with you! My role as your therapist is to help you understand what's going on and how to change so you can build the fulfilled life that you want to be living.
Calling is the first step to getting the answers you have been looking for. You don't have to do this on your own. Call the number on the right and I will be honored to hear what is going on and how I can help you!

More Info About My Practice
My belief is that people are doing the best they can at managing their problems and that it isn't a matter of trying harder or being stronger; its a matter of learning new skills. With that being said, it's my hope to offer you new and different ideas for coping and to help you build on the strengths you already have.
My training includes many evidence-based treatment methods that range from Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness Meditation, Schema Focused Therapy, Stress Reduction techniques, Internal Family Systems Therapy, and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT).
However, I do not believe one type of treatment works for everyone, or that if something works for one person it "should" work with all people. You are an individual and deserve to be treated that way. Together we will decide what will work best for you. You're the expert on your own life and I will do my best to help you make decisions that suite your needs.
My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'
I believe the symptoms you're having are a direct result of what you have been through and what has happened to you in your life. I have a very hard time labeling people with a "disorder" to fit diagnostic criteria that dictates the way I do treatment. I look at you as whole person and assess what is happening in your life currently, what has happened, how you have adapted, and how you have coped in ways that are helpful and not so helpful. Then together, we decide what is working for you and what you want to change.
