About me

I would love to talk to you about the issues you are seeking help for. I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor in private practice under supervision for dual licensure. I work with individuals, adults, adolescents, couple's and families addressing issues of Anxiety, Anger, ADHD, ASD, Bipolar, Depression, Grief, PTSD, BPD, Sexuality, OCD, and chronic pain.

Psychotherapy can be a rewarding, challenging, and, at times, uncomfortable process. Successful therapy usually means learning how to relate to our lives in ways that cultivate growth and health, while becoming aware of and reducing habitual patterns that cause suffering. This is a collaborative process. Together we will focus on feelings, thought processes, and physical sensations, in order to support positive relationships, emotional health, and increased awareness and empowerment. I will provide support, feedback, treatment ideas, diagnostic information, suggestions for reading/education, referrals as needed, and a space for you to explore all of the above. Please remember that psychotherapy is a process based on communication and a deepening level of trust.
My approach to treatment pulls from a combination of philosophical, humanistic, existential, cognitive, dialectical, motivational, and mind-body integration perspectives. The specific treatment methods I use and the duration of psychotherapy will depend on your history, current circumstances, the issues we explore, and our mutually-established goals for therapy. I believe counseling is a collaborative effort, which is successful with an individual’s energy, courage, and commitment to look deep within. In our first meeting we can discuss your goals for therapy, and explore the therapeutic path you are interested in.
I provide ongoing therapy for individuals who are interested in deepening their understanding of themselves, as well as their relationships, goals, and patterns. I offer guidance and support with relational issues, anxiety, depression, personal transitions, suppressed creativity and vitality, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious values, and body image and eating issues. I offer traditional talk therapy, as well as an additional option to work with mental health concerns by incorporating mindfulness practices, guided meditation, and integral life planning. I work collaboratively with other alternative approach professionals to provide continuity of care across all of life’s domains.
These methods can complement talk therapy and allow for a fuller exploration of the root of symptoms. Regardless of the treatment methods used, the focus will be on empowering you to make the changes you wish to make in your life. Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have about my experience, training, methods used, collaborative partnerships, or duration of treatment.
I follow a program I created based on empirically validated evidence based approaches, which blends somatic, vagal, cognitive, dialectical, emotional, motivational, and self conscious therapeutic interventions. Strengthening Your Conscious Self is a health and wellness coaching program I created and copyrighted that allows each person to custom build a program that addresses any or all of the following domains of an individuals life: physical, mental, emotional, psychological, personality, gender, sexual, intimate relationships, interpersonal relationships, family, educational, occupational, financial, social, cultural, and environmental, including many subdomains of each of the preceding domains.
