I empower adults and strive to help them heal broken relationships, manage anxiety and encourage a healthy perinatal experience through therapeutic means and healthy Christian theology.
I work with adults that are ready to heal. Some want to heal from their toxic relationship cycle, others want to end the ruminating hurtful thoughts that plague them throughout the day, and others want to heal from a traumatic birthing experience. No matter what they are ready to heal from, one thing remains the same; everyone wants to heal.
This journey is not easy, and that’s where I come in. Use me as your guide to get you to your healing. I use evidence-based practices and tools tailored to your needs and situation. We will set realistic goals to help guide us to your healthy healing. Your journey is unique, and so is your healing process.
I want you to live fearlessly. Together, my clients and I work hard to experience change over time, decrease anxiety and increase positivity within the self, in their relationships, and in their spiritual connection. I want you to stop surviving but to thrive. With therapy, healing is possible, and I’m here to help you along that journey.
You have no idea where to start. The constant overthinking, feeling stuck, and the pressure to be perfect are mounting. You’re exhausted; mentally, physically, and emotionally. Often having physical pains, negative thoughts of “I’m not good enough,” and feelings of sadness or anger.
It didn’t use to be this way. You were vibrant and hopeful, but now everything seems doom and gloom. You worry too much, and it’s easier to shut down or stay home and polish off a bottle of wine until the pain and worry disappear.
But the pain and worry always return. Sometimes you think the anxiety and pain are normal, but recently it’s gotten worse, and you’ve had panic attacks or lack of sleep. You struggle at work, falling behind on projects and isolating yourself from coworkers. You feel overwhelmed by anxiety and know that something has to change.
You’ve been struggling for years in your relationship, hoping it would get better. The struggles of communicating and feeling lonely within the relationship are starting to weigh on you. You want to connect, but you don’t know how. Often, you resort to yelling and arguing because that’s the only way you know how to communicate. You used to be in a good place, but now you need to decide if you will stay and work it out or if it’s time to move on.
You’ve always wanted to be a mother, and the day has finally come. You look at your baby with joy and excitement the day they are born. As soon as you get home from the hospital, all hell breaks loose. The long nights start to take a toll on you. Your answer feels judged when asked, “How are you feeding your baby?” Your support continues to give unsolicited advice, and it seems they know what’s best for your child. You are starting to feel overcome with the ruminating thought, “Am I a good mom?” The overwhelming pressure creates deep sadness and longing for your life before the baby.
