Hello and welcome! Because you are searching for counseling resources, you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being... and more fulfilling relationships.
As a professional counselor and psychotherapist, I work with adults, children, teens, and couples. My goal is to help clients to uncover their true potential and help them to lead a life that they feel is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying individually suited therapy approaches and techniques, we will collaboratively unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a happier and more meaningful life.
PTSD and trauma; marriage counseling and preparation to marriage; relationship challenges and family challenges; difficult memories and experiences of the past; anxiety and depression; emotional-based medical problems and pain; grief, shame and guilt; adjustment and major life changes; job stress and burnout; weight loss needs and health needs; LGBTQA with life challenges; social phobia and shyness; work performance and sports performance; communication and self-confidence ... these can all be addressed. If you've been trying to resolve one such challenge on your own, but it has failed to heal despite all your efforts... this may be the time to reach out for help.
In therapy you have the opportunity to process past difficult memories and experiences in order to develop healthier cognitions and self-talk... and a more positive self concept. You will learn how to be more mindful and present, allowing you to make healthier proactive choices that bring positive results. You will learn communication and relationship skills, as well as other coping skills to help build a more peaceful and fulfilling future. EMDR, Brainspotting, and EFT are available counseling tools to help with the therapeutic process-- as well as visualization and hypnosis; talk therapy; art and play therapy; cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and more.
You or a loved one may need extra support and guidance through a challenging situation, need relief from depression and anxiety, need help with emotionally-based health problems, want guidance for relationship challenges, or are just ready to move in a new direction of life. I look forward to working with you and/or your loved one in order to achieve your goals and a happier life.
A compassionate ear and skilled counseling techniques can help heal your own or your loved one's emotional pain and coping difficulties... as well as help you move forward on a more peaceful and more fulfilling life path.
Phone 344-7800 or schedule online for your convenience ( above ) to set up your first therapy session. Please see my page on: Rates, Self-Pay and Insurance Questions .
Little therapy dog Sammie was put to peaceful rest January 2018. She was 13 1/4 years young. Her gentle spirit will be sorely missed.
