Licensed Marriage and Family Counselor
SPECIALIZING HELPING TEENS AND ADULTS OVERCOMING RELATIONSHIP STRUGGLES, MOOD DISORDERS, AND TRAUMA
Stuck? Feeling overwhelmed? Searching for more? You’re not alone in these struggles. I’ve spent my whole career helping people find answers. I’m here to help you discover answers for yourself. I approach therapy as a collaborative process. I’m here to support, guide, and introduce you to the person you most want to meet… yourself.
My empathetic, interactive, and thought provoking style will help you hear yourself. So your inner struggles don’t stand in the way of your hopes, desires, and goals. I use techniques from Restoration Therapy, Expressive Arts Therapy, and inner-child work to help you find the real you beneath the noise of our postmodern, conflict driven culture.
I’ve helped combat vets, child abuse survivors, and sexual assault survivors using cognitive behavioral interventions, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Prolonged Exposure Therapy and Imagery Rehearsal Training. I will strive to help you distinguish emotions, behaviors, beliefs from symptoms. By separating your symptoms from your beliefs, we can examine ways to reduce those symptoms and change behaviors. Changing beliefs and behaviors can prevent symptoms from returning.
I recognize that many people’s internal conflicts worsen when relationships suffer from disappointment and resentment. You may feel let down, criticized, or hurt by the people you love or are supposed to love you. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I have unique training in systems theory to help with your family, parenting, relationship, and/or sexual struggles.
