My Approach to Helping

Life can be exhausting. It can feel like you are drowning when everything seems to happen at once. It's easy to blame yourself and feel broken. Old messages from the past keep you feeling like you are doing something wrong, while new stress is harder and harder to manage. You constantly wondering if it's someone else (your boss, significant other, or friend) or your own anxiety keeping you stuck. This keeps you feeling confused, stressed, and downright unhappy. Feeling bogged down by all the struggles of life is hard for anyone, yet somehow it feels very lonely and isolating.

Together we can establish confidence and knowledge in your true, genuine, self. You can not only feel confident in decision making and boundary setting, you can feel comfortable in your emotions no matter how intense or uncomfortable they may be.

I utilize EMDR to work through past trauma and DBT to establish new skills so that you can meet your goals. Find out more about me and these treatment methods by visiting my website, www.supportedchange.com

More Info About My Practice

I work with people struggling with: anxiety, women's issues, questions about their career, questions about their relationships, symptoms related to a past trauma, behaviors that interfere with relationships, depression, and general life struggles.

People who see me appreciate that I am down to earth, flexible, and willing to listen to your needs.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Reaching out to a psychotherapist can be intimidating. You may research and avoid for months before you are ready to make the call. Maybe you have read every self-help book out there and haven't found the right answer. Maybe you just know you can't do it on your own but don't know where to go. Psychotherapy allows you to build a safe place where you can explain your deepest struggles, judgment-free. Then, you get to work with a professional to work through all the barriers that keep you from living the life you would like to live. You don't have to figure it all out yourself anymore. You can rely on someone trained who utilizes heavily researched therapeutic methods to guide you to the place you have been longing for.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Let me start by saying not everyone can say they like their job. I am pretty happy I can confidently say I like what I do. I love holding hope for people when they can't seem to find it and giving them the power to feel this hope themselves when they are ready. I love to watch the transformation that can occur through the therapeutic process so that people can be happier, more confident, and their best selves. I love to watch people become the person they weren't sure they could ever be. I have to say I have a pretty cool job and get to interact with some pretty cool people.

What Makes up a Problem?

I can't tell you how many people who tell me their problem is not "big enough" or "bad enough." That's crazy talk. Comparing your problem to other peoples who are 'worse' can keep you from gaining the skills you need to feel comfortable and confident in your life. A problem can be a recurring thought, worry, or behavior that creates barriers to you meeting your goals. We all have something from our past or present lives that keeps us feeling bogged down. Working through this is therapy can give you the strength you need to strive.
