While there are many misconceptions about what psychotherapy is and who can benefit from therapy, essentially therapy is a personal learning process that is focused on meeting your own defined goals for self-improvement. People may seek therapy if issues or problems feel overwhelming or if they begin to interfere with their overall functioning. I am here to assist with facilitating lifestyle changes, provide supportive and objective feedback, assist you in identifying underlying cause of distress, to teach you better ways of coping with stress and difficulty. As a trained therapist I will work with you and assist you in the journey of self-healing, growth, insight, and transformation.

Psychotherapy varies depending on the personalities of the psychotherapist and client, and the particular problems you are experiencing. Psychotherapy is a bit like a medical doctor visit in which it calls for a very active effort on your part. You will have to work on things we talk about during our sessions as well as on your own between sessions. Psychotherapy has benefits and risks. You may experience uncomfortable feelings like anxiety, sadness, guilt, anger, frustration, loneliness and helplessness. However, research shows psychotherapy benefits people who go through it. It leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, and significant reduction in distress.

Psychotherapy is an in-depth review of where your life has been and where your life is going. Understanding how your history affects your emotions and current relationships gives you the chance to change long-standing patterns. Desired outcomes will be compared to actual outcomes to determine a change in thinking patterns. Steps are identified toward behavior change that otherwise has been elusive.

My approach to psychotherapy starts with a careful assessment of the problem and your attempts to solve them. We will look at your whole life, your health, your relationships with loved ones, your relationship with God. Sometimes, we are living life out of balance or we are going through difficult transitions and we just need some coaching on how to get ourselves unstuck. Other times solutions seem much more difficult to find. I can help with both but I am especially committed to finding creative solutions for those times when that problem just doesn't seem to go away no matter how hard you try.

We all think negatively at times; however, we are empowered because we can change the way we think in order to feel better and cope in the best way possible. In order to pursue optimal psychological health, one way to start is to begin to monitor our thinking regularly. The next step is to examine or question our thoughts and ask ourselves things like: Are our thoughts rational or reasonable? Are they helpful in changing the situation or making us feel better? Are they in proportion to what has happened? Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a particularly effective form of psychotherapy that can help you learn how to feel better especially if CBT is part of a comprehensive treatment plan

Psychotherapy as a whole is a form of support I strongly believe can help anyone struggling with a wide array of issues. Simply having the space to confide in someone who is safe, non judgmental, validating, and consistent can make a great impact in your healing process. I value client-therapist alliance and am a firm believer that the relationship between a client and therapist is the most important factor in whether therapy will be deemed successful by the client.

I believe our current struggles often have a link to past struggles. I work with clients to understand the both/and. What are the current challenges and struggles that you want to improve or change and in doing that how is it link to the past. In other words what previous distortions or hurts are causing the person current struggles and how to they build current health to grow and heal from previous hurts.

Psychotherapy?! What a funny word. I am a psychotherapist, NOT a psycho therapist! :) Others call me a counselor or "the talk lady." People who find me tend to be parents who are looking for support for their children. I use research based therapies that bring empowerment, positive behavior changes, and less frustration and stress. I specialize in youth aged 3-25 who have experienced some level of stress like a divorce, bullying, self-harm, sexting or abuse. Youth nowadays have a different mentality, and I also support parents in understanding and connecting with their children. If you call for a free phone consult and I don't think we are a good match, I will give you multiple referrals.

Licensed Professional Counselor

I use brief Psychotherapy in situations where people need to recall or talk about their past to work through it and try to heal from it. There can be many adversities as we grow from a baby into adulthood. Sweeping things under-the-rug doesn't work. The pain and anger will come out somewhere and you may have no idea where it's coming from! What my purpose is, is to help you resolve whatever you can so that you no longer need to remain just a victim of childhood, or even ADULT neglect, abuse (mental & emotional), or physical or sexual abuse. I'd like to help you move up the continuum from victim to survivor to thriver & maybe even self-actualizer! YOUR PAST DOESN'T HAVE TO DEFINE WHO YOU ARE!
