Mental illness is a normal response to an abnormal circumstance. Life is full of circumstances that create unhealthy behaviors and thought patterns. I help clients explore and uncover the root problems that are interfering with their mental health. I use a combination of Narrative Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to replace unhealthy thought patterns and behavior patterns.
I work with couples and families to help build healthy communication skills, a deeper level of connection, and build a healthy foundation within the relationship. I use the Gottman Method to teach couples skills that are supported by decades of research.
I work with families who want to build healthier communication and a stronger family unit. I have experience in working with the family court and foster care system. I provide individualized parenting education to parents with children of all ages. I work with blended families and families who require therapeutic supervised visitation due to high conflict situations.
Substance abuse and addiction is often a result of underlining mental health problems. Addiction recovery is a complicated process that requires an individualized treatment plan with a trained clinician. I have years of experience in helping clients break free from addiction and reclaim their lives.
I specialize in working with children and teenagers who struggle with social anxiety, anger problems, ADHD, low self-esteem, abuse, self-harm, and identity issues. I also specialize in kids and teens who are considered gifted or highly intelligent. These children often struggle with behavioral and mental health struggles that are unique.
Life coaching is an opportunity to move beyond healing and begin thriving in all areas of life through increasing emotional intelligence, goal setting, identity development, self-esteem building, and working through resolving issues that may be creating self-sabotage and limiting success in all areas of life.
As someone who has personally struggled with depression, social anxiety, and panic attacks, I understand how debilitating and miserable these conditions can have on a person. I offer counseling and training in CBT, mindfulness, and relaxation techniques to help work through these problems.
Trauma is defined as anything that overwhelms an individual's ability to cope. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger after traumatic events. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
I specialize in helping individuals heal from all types of abuse, including the complicated affects of narcissist abuse. I help clients learn healthy boundaries, rebuild their self-esteem, and gain healthy relationship skills.
