Therapy that works.
Congratulations on taking the steps to move towards a better tomorrow. With over 23 years of counseling experience in agency, education and private practice settings, I am skilled at helping adolescents and adults pivot away from destructive thoughts and behaviors. We work first on identifying the strengths you already possess and we build from there. I provide therapy to people struggling with toxic stress, anger management, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, self-confidence, self esteem and trauma (including but not limited to: car accidents, sexual abuse/assault, emotional/physical abuse, racism, sexism, homophobia etc.).
I hold a BA in Psychology from Earlham College and an MA in Counseling from Adler University. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and am passionate about helping people shift away from their inner critic and learn how to hold true to self-compassion. As a lifelong learner, I am committed to using the most effective evidence-based therapies in my work with clients. Extensive training in: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, EMDR, Trauma Focused Therapy, Mindfulness and Anxiety Disorders.
I meet people where they are at and guide them to feel at ease with themselves and ultimately hopeful about new possibilities. We may create lifestyle shifts, develop new habits that directly affect your mood and functioning, transform unhealthy thinking patters or process issues from your past that keep holding you back. I am committed to providing you with effective strategies to address your concerns with honesty, respect, and compassion. I encourage clients to give me feedback about how therapy is going so we can make any shifts to enhance our work together.
