Integrative Mental Health Practitioner
Hi there! I’m so glad you are looking into getting some support and healing for yourself. There is no better investment than in you and the quality of your life and relationships.
I have been a therapist for almost 20 years specializing in adults with anxiety, couples counseling and communication, women’s wellness and personal development, and trauma work.
I also founded this clinic in 2009 and have enjoyed being a small business owner where I get to utilize a different set of skills outside of my clinical work. As a result I work with many professionals and small business owners in my practice as well supporting them in their personal and professional lives.
In general, I work with adults and couples, looking to improve their mental wellness, relationship and communication, and get the support they need as they journey either through tough challenges or braving new chapters in their life.
Integrative Mental Wellness:
My experience has taught me that our health is dynamic and requires our care and attention. It has also become clear that there is not a single answer to achieving mental wellness or health in general.
We need to create a variety of healthy habits unique to us that can create and sustain the mind, body, relationships, and bigger connection we need to fully enjoy our lives.
In our work together we can look at your daily health habits, relationship patterns, spiritual development, career and contributions, and more, to see where you might need to focus in order to find more balance and fulfillment.
We will also be helping you to improve your mindset, change limiting beliefs, express and process emotions, and resolve old wounds if needed. I can help you do this through combination of talk therapy and experiential therapies such as EMDR.
I want to help you feel clear minded, calm in your body, joyful, and connected. This is when we are at our best and feel like ourselves again.
I also am passionate about helping people achieve mental wellness as naturally as possible. You will be surprised what a difference the combination of therapy and lifestyle changes can make. We know many things work, but we often have a hard time doing them without support. So I will help you work through your blocks so you can reach these goals and feel empowered knowing you can help yourself feel better.
Couples Counseling & Consulting:
I have specialized in couples counseling for most of my career. I am a Certified Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist and Supervisor, however I also integrate many therapy tools and skills I have gained over the years to help couples.
Everyone is different and my superpower is noticing what is unique about you and your relationship so I can empower you to heal and grow as individuals and as partners. If needed, I can also support you in ending your relationship with love and compassion to provide the best potential outcome for you and your family.
Our intimate relationships are gifts that can teach us, challenge us, and reward us in immeasurable ways.
I have worked with a vast array of couples and relationship challenges, however I primarily work with committed, monogamous. and often middle-aged couples at this time. I help individuals and couples with communication, emotional connection, physical intimacy, parenting, trust and security, affair recovery, new relationships, separating, or divorcing .
I offer counseling to couples who are needing treatment for their mental health distress as well as their relationship. In the process of counseling it is our professional responsibility to assess for a mental health diagnosis, and to treat accordingly which includes therapy and/or referrals for mental health. Counseling is often consistent and long term (a few months or more) in order dive deeper and to be effective. This is best for couples who have been stuck and can’t seem to make changes at home on their own.
I offer consultation to individuals and couples who are looking for help with relationship and communication skills, feedback, recommendations and referrals, or intermittent support throughout their relationship as they navigate challenges with their healing, growth and development. Consultation is NOT counseling/therapy and does not include mental health assessments or diagnosis. Consulting is best for individuals and couples who are emotionally stable and motivated to learn new skills and take actions on their own between meetings. It is less frequent, less consistent, and more on an “as needed” basis supporting couples through different stages of their relationship. This is a cash service only. My current cash rate is 150.00 per hour.
**Currently I am only offering consultation for couples due to the many demands on our clinic and therapists at this time.
Models of Therapy: EMDR, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping), Integrative Mental Health Practices including the psychology of nutrition and eating.
