We all have life experiences that have caused us pain. It could be from feeling rejected from a group of friends, how a caretaker interacted with you, feeling like you are not good enough and smart enough. Painful experiences can manifest in ways that negatively affect us throughout our lives. It shows in our feelings and actions years or even decades after it occurred, making life unbearable. You may be experiencing crying, sleepless nights, anxiety, irritability, anger, sadness, isolation and depression. It can be a very dark and scary place. When events in life are overwhelming these are common feelings in response. My therapy office provides clients a safe and nonjudgmental environment providing unconditional support and compassion to work through difficult feelings and events. Through our therapeutic alliance, we can diminish painful feelings like sadness, anger, anxiety, crying, and sleepless nights. I provide safe, unconditional and non-judgmental support to help you face challenging, painful and traumatic experiences. Together we will work through those experiences in a healthy and healing way. I want to help you find a brighter, more hopeful life.

More Info About My Practice
My passion is to help veterans, first responders, families, individuals, teens and children heal and live a more peaceful and complete life. Life is hard at times or maybe it always has been hard, leaving you with feelings of hopelessness and loneliness. We've all had painful moments in life and at times we end up carrying these burdens with us far longer than we should. These feelings, if left unaddressed, tend to weigh us down causing depression, anxiety, exhaustion, insomnia and many other negative consequences in our lives. It impacts how we view life, how we function and how we interact with the people in our lives. All of this can be prevented and stopped with some guidance and effort in counseling.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy is about being human, not about being "crazy" or "messed up." In the past, psychotherapy was used only when major behavioral issues, such as violence and theft, were present and as a discipline. Seeking out psychotherapy was not something you could benefit from, it was for problem people, it was for other people. I believe this view of psychotherapy damaged people's idea of what this resource is about and is for. Psychotherapy is a safe place for unbiased and unconditional support to explore ourselves and heal our wounds. As human beings, we are created with a large spectrum of emotions. We need these emotions to understand ourselves, understand our relationships, the people around us, what is right and wrong and to thrive in life. As a psychotherapist, my goal is to help psycho-educate and emotionally nurture my clients and people in need. Emotional understanding, unconditional regard for who we are, and human connection are necessary for our ability to thrive as human beings and feel whole. All of this happens in the therapy room.
