We all have experienced times when life seems challenging. Whether it be a period of transition, ongoing struggles with mental wellness or a loss that can seem overwhelming. Or maybe you are struggling with the current times, that can find us in a world that might not feel very stable or safe. Routines have been interrupted, financial stressors have been amplified, and health/livelihood are being questioned. You don’t have to go through these times alone. And in these moments, you might benefit by chatting with a counselor. And that’s where I come into play.
I am an experienced therapist that assists others that are wanting to change old patterns in order to create growth and change. I specialize in working with adults in the following areas: LGBTQ+, anxiety, depression, chronic medical conditions (to include HIV), grief/loss and trauma. I use a combination of skills and interventions to foster resiliency and empower clients to reach their individualized goals. I believe in a holistic approach (mind and body connection) and utilize mindfulness interventions to help clients be present and grounded. I believe it’s important to understand how our thoughts, feelings and behaviors are all interconnected.
Therapy is an authentic and secure connection between the client and therapist. It consists of a space of safety, respect and acceptance between both entities. The therapeutic process can consist of only a few sessions to address immediate concerns (or to get a tune-up as I call it) or it can be extended to address long standing patterns. The first (and sometimes hardest) step is to send me an email to initiate services. I look forward to working alongside you.
Additional areas of focus: Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Coping with life changes, Adoption and Foster Care, Cancer, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Chronic Pain Illness and Disability, Commitment Issues, Communication Problems, Coping with Natural or Human-Caused Disaster, Emptiness, Fertility Issues, Forgiveness, Gender Dysphoria, Guilt and Shame, HIV / AIDS, Immigration Issues, Isolation / Loneliness, Life Purpose, Narcissism, Polyamory / Nonmonogamous Relationships, Self-Love, Sexual Assault and Abuse, Social Anxiety and Phobia, Women's Issues, Workplace Issues, Young Adult Issues
