Have you been struggling lately? Have you been trying to cope on you own, but just not feeling like you are making progress? Are you starting to feel hopeless? I know that asking for help can be one of the hardest things to do. Let’s make that easier. You don’t have to struggle on your own. Sometimes we have challenges in life and for one reason or another we just don’t have the tools we need. Sometimes we are having struggles we didn’t even know we needed tools for. Let me help you discover those.
My goal is to help you find your own strengths and identify healthy coping strategies that can allow you to make positive change in your life. I truly believe that you do have your own answers and know what is best for you, but you may have barriers to accessing those because of your current stressors.
Everyone is unique and therefore so are the issues that may motivate us to seek help in counseling. I work with individuals who are adjusting to issues that revolve around life transitions, relationships, healing from hurts and traumas, boundaries, self esteem, chronic illnesses/pain and caregiver stress which often leads to anxiety and depression as well as other mental health diagnoses.
I have over 20 years experience as a clinical social worker/ therapist. I feel that my clinical training as well as what I have learned working with a variety of clients over the years will help me be an effective partner for you as we explore what your challenges are, develop goals and how to find solutions.
I offer a straight forward, empathic, compassionate and honest approach. I employ an integrated approach with a variety of therapeutic models and use what works best for you.
I have a special interest in treating you as a “whole” person. Focus in therapy may be on the issues that are causing the most distress, but we can also explore how meditation, movement and self care and compassion impact healing.
I accept most insurances and also private pay clients.
