I know reaching out is hard to do. I know fear can keep us in the dark. I know problems can seem so big there doesn’t seem a way out. I also know sometimes we can minimize feelings and hope they will go away or think we “should” be able to handle them on our own. I know “talking” about it may not seem like a solution right now.
As a counselor, my goal is to help you have greater insight into yourself, your needs, and your emotions. I help you find solutions through a supportive and safe environment. The true power to change lies inside of you. I just help you find it. I help you unbury yourself from what’s keeping you hidden or stuck.
I support adults who feel overwhelmed, stressed, sad, anxious, angry, panicked, or alone. I support adults who feel fearful, betrayed, burdened by relationships, or feel not good enough. I help adults who feel easily distracted, who feel stressed at home or work, or who are coping with a divorce or major life change.
I have a special place in my heart for Maternal Mental Health. I am a mother of two children and experienced first-hand difficult emotions during pregnancy and postpartum. I know what its like to feel stressed out, burned out, touched out, exhausted or worried about thoughts in my head. Through specialized training from Postpartum Support International, I can help you embrace who you want to be and let go of who you think you “should” be. It doesn’t matter if you are pregnant, had a baby a week ago, or have multiple children of various ages— we mothers need a nurturing place to let it all hang out emotionally. For the quality of your life and those that depend on you, investing in your health is a wise decision.
I support teenage girls (and their parents). Teenage girls need support and connection. The world can be a harsh place when you're trying to grow up. My goal is to make it easier by guiding your daughter to embrace her strengths, understand her emotions, learn how communicate her feelings, and get her needs met in healthy ways.
I completed an externship in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) in 2012. Connection, security, love and trust are the goals of most relationships. We tend to get stuck sometimes. Every relationship is unique, every individual is unique, and each relationship has its own triggers and needs. Let me help you feel heard. Love your relationship enough to nurture it.
Stigmas aside, think of counseling as 50 minutes for you. Think of counseling as 50 minutes to talk with the best listener you’ve ever met. Hopefully, someone you’ll find a personal connection with who helps you feel like everything is going to be okay. Better than that—that things can be amazing. I hope that person is me. But if not, that’s okay. We have an excellent team and I can help you find the right fit. Simply put, I love what I do. I love helping people and I will help you the best way that I can.
All counseling services are offered in-person or online through web sessions. Some individuals prefer to meet in person, others online, and others do both. Evening and weekend appointments available as well.
