Finding solutions to everyday problems people struggle with is what I strive to help each client do in creative ways. I believe the client is the true expert; therefore I help each client that is having a hard time putting their finger on what they need to change, find creative solutions to dealing with their problems.
I specialize in dealing with anxiety issues, depression, eating disorders, and mood disorders but will also see clients who need help navigating Marriage and family issues. I'm not the typical counselor who sits in front of you, waiting for you to talk. Making the client feel comfortable is of top importance to me so I have found that expressive arts, play therapy, and other useful activities can help ease the stress of talking to a stranger.

Finding healthy ways to communicate is what I strive to teach each of my clients. I specialize in relationship therapy, which may involve couples, parent/child, friends, or co-workers. I want to help each client strengthen any relationship they may have. Relationships can be hard. You can care about someone and still have destructive patterns of communication.
I strive to make each client feel heard, valued and safe. When we can achieve this, he or she will be on a path to mental wellness. I want to help each person learn new and better ways to communicate. Sometimes, we just need to be heard by someone. I want to hear from each client by listening deeply to what they are saying. I believe that by listening to each person and helping them uncover the potential consequences to each decision they are considering I can help them to make choices that are right for them. I believe each person's situation is unique and should be treated on its own merit.

Finding ways to change thought pattern can be difficult. It is not uncommon for individuals to find themselves thinking, “I am worthless”, “Nobody loves me”, “I will always be like this”. It is easy to get caught up in destructive thinking, and often a person has no idea how to change. As a therapist, I focus on the individual. It is my desire to help each client go from destructive thoughts to healthy, positive thoughts.
Whether you are married, single, young or elderly, I want to help you become the person you want to be. I strive to provide my clients with a comfortable and safe environment. Each person is unique and different. It is my desire to help each client overcome dysfunctional thinking and behavior, and strive to achieve individual wellness.

My goal is to reach you where you are at, and walk with you through your journey. I think it can be helpful to talk to someone when you are feeling down, anxious or out of control. My goal is to work with you through your struggle; listening and guiding you in this process. I work with couples in premarital and marital counseling and with adults for individual counseling.
I am passionate about some of the issues women are usually left alone to deal with such as miscarriage, abortion, infertility, and postpartum depression. These can lead to fear, anxiety and depression and can rob you of your joy. I think that each person is unique and we all handle life's issues differently. I am one that enjoys a good cup of coffee and a listening ear, what about you?

I believe there are two main longings that motivate all of us; a longing to be validated and a longing to belong. When either or both are absent from our lives we can struggle with a variety of issues that hinder the quality of our lives.
I have had the privilege of walking alongside individuals and families as they work through anxiety, sadness, relational aggression, school refusal, low sense of self, and issues changing families face. When we are navigating life as an adolescent or walking alongside an adolescent it can be some of the most complicated and scary times of our lives. It does not have to be.
Gaining new insights into why we do what we do, and making small changings can make huge differences in our lives. Leaving people with authentic hope after every conversation is an important part of therapy for people seeking change. This is something in which I strive for in every session. I strive to listen to each person’s story, deepen their understanding of the situation, assist them clarify their needs and provide effective strategies that will move individuals toward a healthier life.

I have a strong belief in an individual's resilience and ability to endure adverse and traumatic life events. I am passionate about the process and path to gaining hope, a healthy self-image, and an understanding of effective communication.
My clinical focus addresses: anxiety, depression, family dynamics, relationships, negative self-image, life transitions, new medical diagnoses, and complex trauma. These areas are addressed in partnership with you, the client, to form a self-determined treatment plan/or goal of therapy. I work from a strengths perspective providing a base to build upon while identifying positive attributes and strengths of the client. I also utilize a systems prospective proving a starting point to understanding the culture of the clients as well as an opportunity to explore the ways our systems (family, school, work and community) impact our daily lives and our mental health.
I have extensive experience working with teens, young adults, families, groups and the older adult population.
Mark Dyke, Intern
Finding solutions to the problems we encounter takes experience and creativity. Yet it is essential that each person is cared for as an individual, with a unique set of circumstances and needs. What works for one person may not work for another so I work towards creative solutions that are distinct to a particular situation. This is the most effective way to help someone reach goals and overcome challenges.
Change is not easy, but it is possible. It can come in the form of grief and loss, marriage, self-esteem, depression, relationships, or a personal struggle. My purpose is to come along side and help navigate the waters of change. It is important that you feel safe, cared for, and understood; and that is why I am here. Together we can work through whatever life brings you.
