My Approach to Helping

When you were younger, you dreamed of success & satisfaction in all areas of your life. The job, the spouse, the kids, the house. You believed if you worked hard, you could have it all & reach endless heights.
However over time, you've become disillusioned as your efforts haven't amounted in all you hoped they would. You've achieved so much in your career, but now you've realized how much you're missing in your personal life. You've neglected your needs in the area of relationships. You probably feel scared & discouraged when you think into the future and imagine yourself unable to change.
You give so much to others, yet you're constantly worrying you're not enough or they won't love you if you aren't perfect.
Thinking back on your childhood, you have an idea that what you went through may be affecting you today, but you're not sure how. You're open to exploring this, but you're afraid of being overwhelmed by what you find.
I'm here to partner with you & guide you on this journey. You're aware there is so much at stake if you don't do this work. You fear passing your pain on to the next generation. You fear being alone as you get older, or being in an unhealthy relationship that just makes you feel worse about yourself.
Take your first step toward showing yourself the care you show to others by visiting my website & contacting me today for a free 30 minute phone consultation.

More Info About My Practice

I offer a faith-based perspective for those who are looking for it, although I also provide therapy that is not faith-based.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I know what it's like to feel stuck and trapped from past trauma. You can absolutely overcome what's holding you back. I became a therapist to help others experience the healing I have found. I love helping others transform their pain into hope, meaning, purpose, and fulfillment.
