Congratulations on taking the next step to getting more out of your life by investing in yourself and your relationships. Welcome!
Even when life is going well, we can feel stuck in certain patterns or circumstances. And sometimes we find ourselves on the edge or in the middle of a life transition wishing for clarity. We all have the ability to tune into our inner voice, gather more information, develop insights, and trust ourselves as we make positive life changes and improve outcomes. I have a collaborative, compassionate, and non-judgmental approach to support and empower you in this process.
I specialize in the areas of ongoing family conflict, substance misuse, recovery, trauma, codependence, depression, anxiety, and life transitions. I have 19 years of combined coaching, counseling, and therapy experience and work with adult individuals, couples, and families..
Below are examples of goals I have helped others achieve:
Develop clarity about what you want for yourself and your relationships
Achieve self forgiveness and acceptance
Reduce or eliminate substance use
Reduce or eliminate depression and anxiety symptoms
Increase mindfulness and calm
Create safe and supportive relationships and networks
Improve boundaries with others
Increase respect in relationships
Improve life balance and self-care
Effectively handle change and life transitions
I subscribe to the philosophy and teachings of the late Virginia Satir and use the Satir Growth Model in all of my work. The work of Brené Brown significantly influences my practice as well. Additional evidence-based models I use are Motivational Interviewing, CBT, DBT, Seeking Safety, Interpersonal Process, and Mindfulness.
In addition to providing psychotherapy services, I work with teams using the Satir Systems Model to improve connection and performance. I also provide coaching services for personal and professional development.
Further, I love providing substance abuse, mental health, and recovery education to groups and organizations. I have presented to a variety of groups including first responders, undergraduate and graduate students, medical providers, and parent groups.
