My Ideal Client

Perhaps you have hit a rough patch in your marriage. You feel alone, agitated, and irritated at everything your partner does. You don't feel appreciated or seen. The relationship feels "off." You want to communicate better. You want to be on the same page. You want to feel like a team. If you are asking yourself, “Can this work?” the answer is "Yes!" You can improve your communication, successfully handle conflict, and find joy in your resources that you will gain in couples counseling.

My Approach to Helping

Finding the right therapist can be challenging. It almost always comes down to relationship - whether this person “gets me.” I create a warm and welcoming atmosphere that allows for the you to be seen and known. You need to be able to share and explore what is causing pain or circumstances that brings you into counseling and given the space to discover the truth of your strength. It is my belief that the world benefits from people who are able to function with a great sense of contentment, wholeness, and self-efficacy - and that happy and healthy relationships with self and the significant persons in our lives help us reach that state of being. I help people feel empowered to tackle their concerns of relational and marital conflict, anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem by helping them develop the skills needed for emotional self-regulation.

Why I Became a Therapist

The increase of people struggling with anxiety and depression motivated me to become a counselor. Feeling trapped by the feelings of sadness or fear is not the type of life people want. I desire to walk with others to a place of freedom from those emotions. With over 18 years of experience working with teenagers, young adults, and parents, I have honed an ability to have positive interactions with individuals and couples in need of assistance. With an education in understanding how individuals, couples, and families are impacted by systems, I use an integrative approach that includes Restoration Therapy, Emotionally-Focused Therapy, and mindfulness. My process provides tools that empower clients to change painful systems or cycles that they are participating in. Having earned an MDiv degree has also prepared me to partici Having earned an MDiv degree has also prepared me to participate in conversations regarding spirituality if that is a part of your story you would like to explore.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Couples Counseling External link

    I have extensive training as a couples counselor. My education in relational systems, or cycles, provides me with a unique perspective in seeing how each individual participates in the making of a whole. I use this to help couples discover ways that they may better relate to one another and strengthen their communication.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    My desire to see people living as their best selves has motivated me to gain the necessary skills to be a marriage and couples counselor. If you ever once thought or believed that you were your best self alongside of your partner or spouse, and you are curious if you can be that way again, then I have the training to help you grow in communication and compassion to help you find out.

  • Anxiety External link

    Anxiety is a way that we cope with a specific emotion. We will work to uncover the emotion that initiates the coping behavior of anxiety, which then assists in lessening the reactive behavior.

  • Self-Esteem External link

    Low self-esteem is caused by the negative messages we tell ourselves. We will explore these messages to discover what could be the causes, then work to create new neural pathways of what is true about who you are.

  • Child or Adolescent Issues External link

    I have over 18 years of experience working with adolescents, with a vast amount of education and trainings in having healthy and productive interactions with them. I am very passionate about this age group and desire to help individuals not just survive these years, but to thrive in them.

  • Spirituality External link

    Having received an MDiv from Fuller Theological Seminary, I have the knowledge and experience to assist you in exploring your own spirituality and faith.
