Are you feeling tired, overwhelmed, or simply lacking the motivation you once had? Maybe things in your life just aren’t going to plan? Life gets hard when relationships are stressed or broken, when children are having problems educationally or socially, and when anxiety or depression prevents you from being who you want to be. It can be even harder trying to figure out what to do and who to confide in. If you are looking for someone with experience to listen to your situation, help you identify things that need to change and to help you make those changes, I would love help. As a certified school counselor and licensed professional counselor with a supervisor recognition, I have been counseling children, adolescents, college students and parents for over 20 years. We will work together to develop goals and practical strategies to help you feel empowered.
As a Cognitive Behavioral therapist, I believe that our thoughts control our feelings which directly influence our actions. Sometimes our thoughts are influenced by the people around us, societal standards and/or our past experiences. In order to change our actions, it is important to manage our thoughts. With cultural sensitivity and awareness, I use trauma informed practices to help you understand how your thoughts could be affecting your progress. One of the ways I do that is by utilizing Sandtray Therapy. By offering a variety of miniatures that represent people, places, things, and ideas, I can support you in creating a visual representation of your world that can be remodeled into the life you desire.
It is important to find a counselor that you can connect with who can effectively listen and support you in making the changes you desire. I pride myself in using empathy, compassion and humor to build a supportive relationship that leads to change. I offer 50-to-90-minute counseling sessions evening and weekends by appointment. If your needs meet with my expertise, please give me a call.
