Welcome! I am glad you are here and it takes courage to take that first step to reach out for support, especially if you might be feeling depressed, anxious, or paralyzed with fear of how to move forward.  

Sometimes, we may find ourselves in unexpected and challenging situations, abusive relationships or work environments, stuck in addictive patterns, or find ourselves stuck in self-sabatoging behavior. You might feel alienated, alone, or unable to open up to friends or family. Maybe, you are aware of what you need to do, but can't bring yourself to act. 

Depth counseling, which is a form of therapy that allows repressed feelings to surface by exploring unconscious drives and motiviations. Depth counseling can help bring us closer to healing by integrating past traumas, developing a greater awareness of the self, and aligning with our core values. I can help support you through difficult life transitions, healing trauma, improving self-esteem, understanding  relationship issues, transforming negative thought patterns, and unblocking self-sabatoge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our traditional education often prepares us for learning how to follow directions, memorize and repeat, get a job, do what is expected of you, and fit into a particular mold. Some might succeed at following this formula, but feel a sense of emptiness. Others might think poorly of themselves simply because they feel that can’t fit themselves into that mold. It fails to address how to create a life worth living and how to find meaning through life's challenges.  

 

Anxiety, depression, PTSD, substance abuse issues, and other mental health symptoms can develop as a response to traumatic life experiences. I would be more than honored to walk with you on your healing journey, help you explore how past experiences may be holding you back, and move forward to create a more fulfilling and meaningful life. It is my passion to help you uncover your hidden gifts, unconscious motivations for certain choices and life decisions, self-sabotaging patterns, and help you access your deepest dreams, passion, inner wisdom, and creativity.

 

 

 

 
Counseling may be one of the most authentic, unrestricted forms of communication left in our culture. It is the one space where emotions are not only allowed, but encouraged. My aim is to create a therapeutic space where you feel completely free from external pressure and are able to fully let go and exhale. Therapy is a space where unknown parts of yourself can be allowed to surface and be integrated and accepted.
 
As a Jungian/Depth-oriented therapist, I am able to hold space for painful or rejected parts of yourself to be felt, consciously dealt with, loved, and accepted. Through this process, we can free ourselves from unconscious, repetitive patterns and experience greater presence, wholeness, and freedom of choice in our daily lives. I meet my clients where they are at and create a sacred space of safety and acceptance, from which real growth and change can occur. It is my aim to help my clients explore their problems and, in doing so, help them overcome obstacles and move towards realizing their true, authentic potential. 

Please note that I am currently not accepting new clients at this time.

Please note that using insurance to help pay for counseling will require that clients meet medical necessity for treatment, be provided a clinical diagnosis, which will be reflected on their permanent health care record. Insurance companies may also impose limits on the annual number of sessions, specify treatment modalities, and request all clinical notes, which impacts patient privacy. Please contact your insurance provider to request information about types of mental health coverage, copay or deductibles, and authorized number of sessions in order to help you decide whether you would like to pay using insurance or out-of-pocket.

2. What should I expect during my free consultation?

The first session is about 20-30 minutes, is free, and gives us both an opportunity to see if we would be a fit working together. It is important that you feel a sense of connection, trust, and safety with your therapist. I will be working for you, so feel free to ask me questions, discuss your concerns, fears, and what brings you to counseling at this time.

3. What are the cost and benefits of therapy?

To seek out therapy is an individual choice and receiving the support of a therapist can help clients gain clarity, insight, and understanding during challenging times of life or in healing from past trauma. However, therapy can also bring up painful memories or emotions, which may be painful or difficult to face at times. Sometimes, symptoms may temporarily get worse before they get better.

4. Is therapy confidential?

All communication between a client and psychotherapist is confidential and protected under state law, except in cases of imminent risk, child abuse, threat of harm towards another person, or court subpoena.

5. What does a typical therapy session look like?

Each session is fifty minutes long and is tailored to meet your individual needs. Counseling can be sought for short-term problems to assist with a crisis, major conflicts, important decisions, or relationship problems, as well as long-term concerns that address complex issues, such as unhealthy thought patterns, self-esteem, identity, long-term goals, and personal growth. I use a blend of modalities and techniques all depending upon your own comfort level. I am very client-centered and will check-in with you to gather feedback about how you feel about your progress.

6. What is your approach to counseling?

My approach is to work with my clients at their own pace, build a solid foundation, and uncover the root problems contributing to symptoms. I can provide brief, short-term or long-term counseling depending upon your goals. Symptoms and disorders often arise as a result of surviving difficult situations and attempting to cope with trauma and stress. The goal of therapy is to discover and develop healthier ways of coping with trauma. I also take a holistic approach to therapy, which consists of blend of modalities, including somatic therapy, existential and humanistic psychotherapy, psychodynamic techniques, dream interpretation, mindfulness, meditation, or self-hypnosis techniques, and rational emotive behavior therapy.
