        Specializations

 

My goal is to help you feel better as soon as possible! I believe in your body and brain's natural ability to heal itself with the support, guidance, and attunement of a trained, caring professional. I will help you gain insight and learn new skills to get you on the right path. I use an integrative approach to therapy, utilizing Brainspotting, Attachment Theory, Internal Family Systems, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I also have training and experience in Play Therapy and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for children. I believe that healing involves the mind, body, and spirit, and will include spiritual practices such as prayer and meditation if requested. Together we will navigate your unique life circumstances and strive to reach your personal goals.

My Approach

Specializations

 
Children
 
Adolescents

Raising children is difficult, and raising difficult children can be grueling! I specialize in treating AD/HD, Anxiety, Oppositional Defiance, PTSD, Bipolar, Suicidal Ideation, Learning Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders and Depression. I also have experience treating children who have experienced single or chronic trauma and those affected by divorce.

 
Trauma

Physical, emotional, academic and social stress can be overwhelming for teens! I specialize in treating adolescents with Anxiety, Depression, Learning Disorders, Social Problems, Self-Harm and Suicidal Ideation/Attempts, School Difficulties, and LGBTQ concerns.

When a person experiences trauma, their bodies and brains are changed. The world looks and feels different -- because it is. Brainspotting works with the body's limbic and central nervous system to help find , process, and release the nuerophysiological sources of pain. For more on how Brainspotting works, click here

 
Anxiety and Depression
 

Anxiety and Depression are the most common mental health complaints, and the most treatable! Many people experience considerable symptom relief with professional care. I use elements of cognitive behavioral therapy along with compassion and empathy to provide a supportive environment for growth.

Family Conflict
 
Christian Counseling

When our primary relationships are strained by conflict, miscommunication, or external stressors, it can take a toll on our mental health and well-being. I specialize in co-parenting, blended families, establishing parental control, communication, and overcoming loss.

Founded on biblical principles, faith-based therapy combines spiritual wisdom with psychological theories and practices. I can include prayer, scripture reading, and other spiritual practices to encourage your emotional/spiritual health.
