Creating the Life you Want and Deserve

Hello, I’m so glad you’re here.

Since you are reading this, it means you are contemplating beginning counseling and a therapeutic relationship where I can help you work on getting to the place you want to be. I want to take this opportunity to share with you some things about my practice and myself in hopes of helping you decide if I am the person you will choose to begin working with.

I provide psychotherapy and counseling for adults and couples. I specialize in helping people who grew up in a family where they didn’t feel safe, protected, or cared for in the ways they needed, their emotional and/or physical needs weren’t met, and they experienced trauma. These experiences have made it difficult for them to feel confident and good about themselves, to trust and be vulnerable in relationships, and they also often have trouble with positive self care. Adults who didn’t get their needs met as children often experience difficulty with anxiety, unresolved past trauma/post traumatic stress disorder, depression, and physical health issues such as chronic health illnesses and/or chronic pain.

How we emotionally feel and what we think and believe affects how we physically feel, so I help people identify, acknowledge, accept, and link together their emotions, thoughts, beliefs, and physical feelings. Overall this promotes a new awareness and sense of control while creating a mind and body centered connection.

Couples Counseling and Marriage Therapy

I specialize in couples and relationship counseling. I have received special training in a specific type of couples therapy called the Gottman Method. Gottman relationship therapy incorporates years of couple’s research, and it reflects what dynamics, characteristics, and attributes a person needs to develop and possess to be a relationship master. We all have some of these strengths, but often we need help in developing more helpful patterns of interaction that help support our relationships in positive ways.

I work with you individually and as a couple to help you learn to manage conflicts in helpful ways, how to be present and support your partner, and lastly, how to become a better friend while developing positive memories and hope for the future. These skills and new patterns will help you develop a long-term healthy and rewarding relationship.

Couples Counseling and Marriage Therapy

Couples wait 6 years on average before getting help.

Group Therapy and Supportive Group Counseling

Group Therapy and Supportive Group Counseling

I provide various supportive counseling groups and education groups to help people connect to others who are challenged and struggling with similar stressors. When we connect with others who experience a common life challenge, we are given the opportunity to share our feelings, beliefs, challenges, and difficulties. In group counseling, we come together to learn, grow, change, and get unstuck. By doing these things, our isolation can fade and a sense of supportive connectedness grows. Thus, we begin to understand we are not alone and it’s okay to rely on and need each other to help us through our difficult and painful experiences.

Sometimes when we feel the most alone, it is the exact time that we need to reach out and ask for help.
