My Approach to Helping

I realize how difficult it is reaching out for counseling.   I am easy to talk to and a good listener.  I know it is hard to articulate exactly what you need sometimes and together we can figure that out.  I have more than 20 years experience working with depression, anxiety, loss, family issues, relationships, feelings of self-doubt, divorce or separation, parenting, life directions, loneliness, chronic illness, work issues and so much more.  Whatever is important to you, that is what is important to me.  I want to help you live the life you want and not some watered down version of it. I understand people. I am sensitive to your emotions and may at times seem to understand you when you do not have the words to describe it yourself.  I have reflected on my own issues in such a way as to better understand the struggles of others.  Everyone is unique.  If faith or spirituality is important to you, then it is important to me.

More Info About My Practice

Looking for counselors is the first step in your journey. Then comes actually contacting someone.  I genuinely like the people I work with.  I really want to understand your unique struggles.  I want to help guide you in figuring all this out.  Reach out to me today or whenever you're ready.  I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

During our initial session, we go over your specific issues to get a general idea of what you would like to happen as a result of counseling. During the process of counseling, we work on those areas and explore other areas as they arise. I work to help you integrate your emotions as well as practical ideas for achieving the life you desire.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Since my 20's I have believed that impacting others with love and acceptance is a way for me to impact the world. I have always rooted for the underdog and those marginalized by society. I have an inner strength and when prompted by injustice, my courage knows no bounds. I consider myself an advocate for those that can't advocate for themselves in both my professional and personal life. I relate to people regardless of ethnicity, sex, age and affluence and always see them as individuals first. I enjoy learning from people with experiences different from my own.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I believe I have been given a gift that allows me to have compassion and a desire to help those in difficult circumstances. During college, my father developed early-onset Alzheimer?s. As a family, we never talked much about feelings. My mother, sisters, and I were devastated, but we all kept a strong outward appearance yet, when alone, the grief was gut-wrenching. At the time, I thought how wonderful it would be to talk to a psychologist about my issues, but my family did not believe in "shrinks" so I suffered in silence. One time, I thought of ending my life to avoid the painful emotions. At that moment, I was inspired to become a person who actually knew how to talk to individuals going through these difficult times. As time evolved, I found my niche working with adults and couples.
