Do you ever wish you felt less stressed & more confident?
Hi there! I focus on helping working professionals who struggle with anxiety and anger and those who feel overwhelmed and stuck. Since 2013, I have worked with hundreds of individuals and helped them release old patterns and create healthy, sustainable habits. I have had the privilege of working with clients struggling with a variety of challenges including the after effects of childhood sexual and physical trauma as well as domestic violence.
If you feel overwhelmed at work, have difficulty communicating your emotions with those closest to you, feel isolated in your struggles, tend to worry and over-think things and feel powerless in creating your best future, then let’s talk!
I was not always a counselor. In my previous career as a Director of Marketing for a Fortune 500 company, I quickly realized that, what I enjoyed the most, was helping employees overcome self-doubt to fully own their individual strengths and goals. Having worked in a stressful corporate setting as well as an entrepreneur, I can whole-heartedly relate to day to day stressors. All too often, pressures from home and work compete, creating additional frustration and anxiety. Combining my experience in business and counseling, I now work with individuals to help reduce anxiety and build self-confidence, which I consider the best of both worlds!
I look forward to meeting you, discussing your goals and how we can work toward them!
So you’re thinking about counseling...
Taking that first step is a bit daunting, isn’t it? But…if you are stuck in how you feel and it’s getting in the way of you living your life to the fullest, it’s time!
Do you often think to yourself “I know in theory what I need to do, but I can’t seem to do it”. In sessions we’ll work on getting you out of that cycle and back to yourself. I want to be your counselor, to help you through and out of your challenges, but I want you to be able to make that decision with confidence.
I’ve compiled a list of 5 Things to Ask Before Starting Therapy
And if you feel like what I offer matches your needs and goals, then let’s get started!
Therapy for Anger, Anxiety, Panic & Trauma
EMDR is how I conceptualize how we get from point A (feeling stuck) to point B (ready to take on life) in our sessions. We look at how events in the past continue to effect us in the present. By working through these events from the past through guided eye movements we are able to remove blocks that prevent us from healing past experiences. I continue to utilize EMDR because of the excellent results in healing not just the mental and emotional effects of anxiety, but the physical symptoms as well! If you are looking to find out more, you have a few options:
We’ll discuss EMDR in detail in sessions and how it applies to your unique situation.
If you’d like some more information on EMDR, follow this link. There is A LOT of information, so again, if you have any questions, just ask!
We have quite a few items to cover! Before you ever arrive at the office, you’ll receive an email with some preliminary paperwork, that will help us in making the most of our session. Of course, if you end up having questions about parts of that paperwork, we can always talk about it in session.
Confidentiality, what happens if you run into me outside of the office, what’s the deal with insurance, what’s a treatment plan and most importantly, your rights as a client.
Your reasons for coming to counseling
In order to know where we are going, we have to first know, where you are at this point. What is working in life for you and what is not. Are there symptoms that are particularly uncomfortable, how long have they persisted, etc.
What you want to get out of our sessions
This is one of my favorite subjects, but often one of the most difficult ones to answer. What do you want to achieve in counseling? Ideally, what will your life look like? How will you feel?
Questions you may have for me
Never be afraid to ask questions! It’s important that we address any concerns or worries you may have, so that you can confidently step into the process. I fully understand that asking questions can often bring up anxiety, but I hope to make the experience as painless as possible. I welcome any and all questions and will address them to the best of my ability!
Getting to know each other
The first few sessions are truly about me getting to know you, and for you to get to know me. This time is all about building trust so that when the time is right, you feel comfortable about opening up. We will talk about many things, which will give me a better picture of who you are and what life looks and feels like for you, so we can then build a treatment plan together that will move you toward your goals!
A scheduled session may be cancelled up to 24 hours in advance without charge. If cancellation is within 24 hour window and for no-shows, full scheduled session cost will be billed.
