My Approach to Helping

I specialize in counseling for adult women and couples. Many people struggle within their private emotional space and within their important relationships. It can be difficult to ask for help but even more difficult to continue this way and losing hope that things can ever be better. I will help you (and your spouse) identify unhealthy patterns that may be keeping you stuck, heal from painful experiences, explore ways for you and your partner to build a safe emotional space for each other again, discover what it means for you to walk in confidence and begin moving forward to a place where you start living with in greater peace and joy.

More Info About My Practice

I truly feel blessed to help others. I enjoy the connections I develop with clients and their well-being means something to me. I'm not a removed, stuffy therapist who listens passively and pretends to have never had a problem or challenge in my life or relationships. I don't use big language to try to impress anyone and I don't judge. Many clients (especially those who have had unpleasant experiences with counseling in the past) appreciate that our sessions are active, collaborative and conversational.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Counseling can be of tremendous help to move beyond emotional roadblocks, heal hurts and explore solutions to challenging situations. The goal of most counseling is to help an individual, couple or family to get unstuck, break through unhelpful patterns and help them come to a place of discovery, renewal, peace and joyful living.

My Therapy Focus

Individual counseling for adult women. I specialize in working with anxiety, depression, trauma and perinatal emotional health. I believe that women, as much as we tend to talk more openly about emotion, often experience our deepest struggles in silence and find it difficult to ask for professional help. Our culture does not make it easy for people to ask for help and it leaves us feeling like we have to figure everything out on our own. There are many times and situations when coffee with a friend or a phone call with a family member are not going to get the job done. In fact, it can leave us feeling worse! Healing and change are possible.

Relationship counseling for couples. I work with married couples and those in committed dating relationships. My work focuses on helping couples not only communicate more effectively, but to actually feel closer to each other. Over time we can feel like our relationships are on auto pilot and we are simply going through the motions, checking all the boxes... sometimes we don't even have the energy to check the boxes anymore. Let's face it, it is easy to fall in love... not so easy all the time to STAY in love. You and your partner might feel like you keep having the same arguments over and over. You may have had an experience in your relationship that has left you both hurting and feeling disconnected. Healing and change are possible.

Many clients (especially those who have had unpleasant experiences with counseling in the past) appreciate that our sessions are active, collaborative and conversational.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

The length of time people participate in counseling varies, depending on the depth of emotional distress and the goals for treatment. Most people choose to come in weekly which helps maintain a consistent level of progress. I do not want clients to depend on counseling sessions to simply "cope"... my goal is to help people through challenges so that they can successfully move forward on their own. My door is always open to previous clients who may want or need to "pop in" for a visit as things come up in their future.
