Due to demand, I'm accepting new clients for expanded business hours.
 
Are you experiencing difficulties or painful memories? Do you perceive the emotions they evoke are interfering with the quality of your life? Therapy can be an empowering experience, one that sparks positive change and puts those feelings and memories in their proper place. Utilizing a strengths-based, solution-focused, and individualized approach, I collaborate with my clients as they pursue personal goals and achieve clarity. My job as your therapist is to guide you to where you want to go.
 
My clinical concentrations include trauma counseling and treating clients diagnosed with a mental illness. I have substantial experience working with children and adults who are struggling with traumatic experiences, challenging behaviors, and/or mental illness. I have been trained in Levels 1 and 2 of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing ("EMDR"), a highly effective treatment for those who have experienced traumatic events.  I can tailor the EMDR protocol to treat children as well.  Additionally, as a pilot's wife and former military wife, I understand the challenges aviation and military families endure and have helped all types of families resolve parenting and relationship struggles.
 
My approach to treating children is rooted in the Hand-in-Hand parenting model.  By working with children, I am also working with the parents and caregivers.  This parenting philosophy strives to deepen the connection between parent and child by helping the parent understand the child's often confounding behaviors (e.g., tantrums, hitting, aggression, sleep disturbances, and toileting issues, for example) and ultimately resolve them.
 
Therapy is an investment, one that can influence the vector of your future as well as reveal the things that are driving your habits and choices.   I provide all of my clients with confidential, culturally sensitive, and trauma-informed care.  Additionally, I offer counseling packages and tailored treatment plans to make therapy more cost-effective.  My services include:
  •  Psychotherapy - in-person;
  • Consultation - I offer second opinions regarding mental health treatment plans and reports (in-person or over- the-phone); and
  • Dating and Parenting Coaching - Facing a parenting challenge and need a listening ear and/or guidance?  I offer parenting coaching based upon the Hand-in-Hand parenting model.  Further, if you are single and aren't meeting the kind of people you'd like to meet, let's put our heads together and develop a new strategy (in-person or over-the-phone).

As a psychotherapist, I am fascinated by the complexities of our human experience.  I am driven by the desire to promote wellness and wholeness within myself and others.   If you'd like to speak more about how counseling may benefit you or if you would like a second opinion regarding mental health treatment planning, please call for a free consultation.
