The most important aspect of successful therapy is feeling safe and connected with your therapist. I look forward to helping you find more meaning and joy in your life.
I specialize in simplifying life using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and a Cognitive Behavioral Approach to respond to your unique needs. As a military veteran and licensed school counselor, I have helped children, adolescents and adults overcome life’s biggest challenges.
Deciding to come to therapy can feel both daunting and empowering at the same time. We will embark on a journey of discovery, bringing into balance the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of your life. As a result, you will find that you have more choices and greater awareness of your feelings, reactions, and behaviors.
The Process of Counseling. Counseling can result in many benefits to you, including improving interpersonal relationships and resolution of the specific concerns that led you to seek help. As a collaborative process, counseling requires your active efforts, honesty, and openness to achieve desired changes. Change will sometimes be easy and swift; other times it will be slow and even frustrating. There is no guarantee that therapy will yield the intended results.
