Have you been through difficult experiences that continue to bother you emotionally even though you feel you "should be 'over' them?" Do you feel exhausted and tense much of the time? Do you find yourself worrying almost uncontrollably about even small matters? Is it difficult for you to relax or sustain calm feelings even when things are fine? Are you having persistent difficulties sleeping well? Do you sometimes feel strongly as if "something bad is about to happen?"
These symptoms are associated with moderate to severe anxiety which really impacts your quality of life and functioning. We all experience some anxiety from time-to-time, but if your symptoms feel constant and they get in the way of the life you want to live, it's time to consider counseling. These symptoms are HIGHLY treatable and you deserve to be free of them.

I am a licensed professional counselor with 10 years of experience treating adults with a wide variety of mental health and substance use issues. For the past five years, my focus has become more heavily on treating the effects of trauma and all the corresponding problems that come with it (e.g., anxiety, depression, self-esteem problems, relationship issues, Dissociative Disorders, etc. ). Most of my experience was earned in Community Mental Health settings; I've been in private practice since August 2017. I am trained and highly experienced in EMDR Therapy and am Certified by the International Association for EMDR Therapy (EMDRIA). Additionally, I am a member of NAADAC (the association of addiction professionals) and the International Soceity for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation (ISSTD). Alongside EMDR, I also practice Internal Family Systems Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and use skills and strategies from other theoretical orientations and therapies.
