My life has been forever altered by engaging in therapy as a client and continues to be shaped by helping others engage in their own therapeutic process. I was one of those people who did not believe that life had anything to offer me and that I simply had to accept and suffer with the difficult hand I had been dealt…. How wrong I was! It was a lot of work and it took a long time, but a little bit at a time I started to overcome my past and was shocked to realize it was actually possible to feel genuinely happy, good, positive… not that every moment is bliss. I understand that everything in life is a balance, but I cannot tell you how much I had truly lost hope or, more accurately, never had hope for a “good” life. Of course, I still have endless opportunities to continue to grow, but now I seek this growth because I enjoy the intrinsic benefits of such growth and I find it leads me to feel a sense of purpose in life….
Having realized what might be accomplished if a person has the right supports and motivations, I want to be of help to others as they work to develop the life they want and to achieve the goals they set….
Why counseling… change is simple, right? Well… not so quick. Change can sound so easy and simple. Some people are like, “If you don’t like it, just change”. My personal experience is that it can be anything but simple and it is never so straightforward. So I am here to help with this process, whether your currently on a path through a meadow of flowers, up a steep mountain pass, or through a raging battle field… it can help to have someone walk for a time with you. Even when we don’t have a great change we need to make, sometimes just having the support, having someone to bounce ideas around with is just as important to living a healthy life.
My experiences over the past 13 years in the field have led me to offer particular support in the following areas: anxiety, depression, PTSD, panic attacks, trauma history, childhood abuse/neglect, relationship concerns/conflict, domestic violence, parent child relationship concerns, parenting, caretaker support, autism/aspergers, parents of children with special needs (due to medical, PDDs, behavioral concerns, mental health, exposure to trauma, ect), life transitions and adjustments, generalized life stress, low self-esteem/self-worth addiction (alcohol/drugs/behaviors), codependency, criminal thinking, past criminal histories (including a history of violent and drug related offenses), and student truancy and dropout prevention. I use multiple approaches that vary depending on the individual needs, personality, and preferences of the client.
The most important thing is that you are ready to begin to set some goals/explore what you would like support with and that you are ready to be actively involved in this process.
Additional areas of focus: Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Compassion fatigue, ADHD, Autism and Asperger Syndrome, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Chronic Pain Illness and Disability, Codependency, Commitment Issues, Communication Problems, Control Issues, Divorce and Separation, Emptiness, Family of Origin Issues, Family Problems, Forgiveness, Guilt and Shame, Isolation / Loneliness, Life Purpose, Mood Disorders, Panic Disorder and Panic Attacks, Post-traumatic Stress, Social Anxiety and Phobia
