I teach self-regulation, which helps you manage your body's automatic response to stress. Once your body can relax, you can develop healthier patterns of thought and behavior.
Together we will explore:
Your body's response to stress; unhelpful patterns in relationships, thoughts, and behavior; how to find meaning and purpose amidst hardship; how to develop lasting change; how to communicate your needs and desires
I specialize in working with people who:
desire positive change in their lives, feel stuck by past hurts or failures, feel overwhelmed by life's demands, struggle to make connections with others; are in adolescence and adult phases of life
I became a therapist because:
I enjoy integrating the arts with science to help people experience healing and personal and relational growth.
Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:
LifeSpring Behavioral Health is a Christian-based group that offers counseling as well as medication management by an on-site psychiatrist.
When I’m not at work, I like to:
run outdoors, lead group exercise classes, garden, and write.
