My Approach to Helping

It may never feel like it’s the “right time” to start, so why not start now? I would be honored to walk alongside you in any season of life that you are in. We will leave no stone unturned as together, we work towards helping you build a life that is meaningful, peaceful, and worth living. My approach is to allow you to feel heard and unjudged. My goal is to compassionately challenge you to feel empowered to make changes in areas that are unproductive or do not create joy and peace in your life. Life is not linear, and neither is the healing process. Recovery may take place in ebbs and flows. You may have days where you feel like you’re making significant progress, followed by times when you feel stagnant or as if you’ve regressed. Part of my role is to help you remain encouraged and remind you of the progress you’ve already made that you might be minimizing. I will celebrate with you when things are great, and be here when it feels like they could not be worse.

Mental health treatment does not have to be taboo or something to be ashamed of. The same way we have no shame when we seek a mechanic when in need of an oil change or a physician when we have a physical pain that just won’t go away, may we learn to have no shame when we seek help in other areas that aren’t tangible. Allow me to help you unlearn the survival techniques you created to protect yourself from emotional pain. Be proud of the simple fact that you are on this site, whether searching for yourself or a loved one.

I have experience working with individuals with severe mental illness, low impulse control, grief, substance use, behavioral problems, depression, anxiety, trouble with decision-making, trauma, high levels of work stress, anger management, criminal stipulations, and reintegration into society after incarceration. I have worked with diverse populations - from one of the nation’s leading psychiatric facilities to the third-largest jail in the country. Your therapy will be individualized to match your specific needs, lifestyle, and pace.
