Clinical Therapist with a focus on Anxiety, Mood, and Trauma Related Disorders

Life is full of unexpected twists and turns, it’s certainly not a straight and easy path. It can be difficult navigating some of the “forks in the road” .. especially if it’s one we didn’t want or choose. Therapy can help you feel less alone in this and give you a different perspective. It can provide a safe place where what you say .. stays there. It can be a place of change, healing, and hope.

Therapy can be one of the most selfless gifts for your life. Taking the time to work on yourself, by yourself, and for yourself .. is an incredible act of courage and strength.

If you come into my office, you will not see it plastered with diplomas and certificates. I hang what I am required to..and that’s it. You will rarely see me speaking in front of crowds or on TV. But what you will find, is an office that is used for therapy. And a therapist who focuses on Hope and Change. I like to think of myself as a quiet force, making change one day at a time. And if you decide to come see me, I hope you sit back and feel comfortable. Because this is a safe place.

In working with Minors-the complex arena of avoiding law suits and board complaints. The age group of ( up to 18 years) has sadly become a legal landmine due to divorce rates and increased court involement. Thus I do require verbal and written consent from both biological parents or all legal guardians (unless there is sole custody). My intake process and continued expectations can be tedious, but it has a purpose. Which is to protect all of us. To read more on this topic, click the link above on “treating children.”

Mental Health treatment takes your privacy to a different level. There are some buts… however. Therapists are mandatory reporters (as are police officers, medical staff, child care workers, teachers, pastoral staff, etc). All mandatory reporters are legally required to report if we are concered that you will harm yourself, harm someone else, or if you are “gravely disabled.” We are also required to report abuse of a child, the elderly, or disabled.

Overwhelmed with information? Me too… But I would rather you have too much information than not enough:)
