"Everyday is about becoming" I believe that going through a process of self-reflection and change is powerful and brave. It helps us identify how we are getting in our own way in having a better quality of life. In responsibility their is power. Everyone wants to feel content and satisfied with themselves and the world they build around them but we struggle to achieve this goal because we have been hurt, disappointed, betrayed, or doubt ourselves. Find your personal power and change your world. I am with you.
As a licensed clinical psychologist for 20+ years, I understand that the relationship and "fit" between client and therapist is paramount. I work hard to establish and maintain a relationship based on mutual trust and honesty. We can work together to help you feel less stuck, and more in control.
Professional counselor since 1993. I worked as a public mental health clinician 1994-2000. Although grounded in counselling & psychotherapy methods (cognitive/behavioral, psychodynamic, family & brief therapy models), I specialize in cutting edge mind/body/energy/spirit modalities.
I provide professional, results-oriented counseling with a focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a method that more quickly and effectively brings about positive changes. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I also work extensively with couples and family members on relationship issues.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Certified Traumatologist and a Nationally Certified Counselor who specializes in mood and anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, multicultural counseling, relationship issues and problems associated with emotional and physical abuse.
Therapy is a partnership between you and your therapist. You work together to find the causes of problems, as well as create solutions and strategies for resolving them. You end up with peace of mind and the ability to reconnect with the people close to you.
Personal set-backs and conflictual relationships are common problems that we all can face at some point in our lives. My approach is respectful and compassionate. I have doctoral level clinical training, research experience, several publications, and am adjunct faculty at Virginia Tech.
My sensitive and engaging, direct and practical, style is reported by my clients as one of their attractions to working with me. I work with Children, Adolescents and Adults, addressing ADHD, depression and anxiety, divorce, loss and medical trauma. . I would be honored with your trust in me.

As living human beings, we encounter times in our lives when we need someone to help us think, reflect and look at our lives. I am passionate about helping people live life to the fullest of their abilities. I offer Counselling in English and Afrikaans and on the go while you travel through online counselling.
I understand it can be difficult to reach out for help when individuals are feeling overwhelmed, confused and scared. I appreciate and affirm the courage it takes to enter a therapeutic setting and into a therapeutic relationship. It is important to honor each client’s individual journey towards happiness, wholeness and health. I strive to provide a safe, supportive and non-judgmental space for all individuals and topics. I believe that providing a safe, judgement free environment is essential to address sensitive and personal issues. Creating a dynamic in which we collaborate together to establish goals for individuals is valuable. I believe that together we can discover effective possibilities that can provide insight towards resolutions. I am passionate about supporting individuals, children, families and couples throughout their journeys in counseling. I am here to help you identify and utilize your strengths, as well as develop new ones, to achieve your goals to reconnect with the joys of life. In addition to working with adults and couples, I also enjoy and have experience working with children and adolescents. I aim to develop a strong therapeutic relationship with my child and adolescent clients in order to provide a safe outlet for emotional expression, develop coping skills, improve mood, and strengthen self-esteem. I also enjoy and am trained in working with individuals and couples who are experiencing sexual concerns. I am a Certified Sex Therapist-Candidate through the Texas Sex Therapy Institute. Many people have trouble discussing sexual problems, sex therapy is designed to help you explore those sensitive issues and solutions can be created through the therapeutic process. My areas of interest, training and experience includes, infidelity, low sexual libido, vaginismus, erectile dysfunction, performance anxiety, addiction, out of control sexual behaviors, couple/martial conflicts, identity issues, kink, communication difficulties, grief, trauma, depression, anxiety. I enjoy working with everyone: monogamous, polyamorous, kink-identified and LGBTQIA+. If you find that you are struggling with asking for what you want and need in life, in your relationships and within yourself, the work we can do can help you grow and achieve your next level of happiness.
Are you feeling stressed or overwhelmed? Are you struggling with symptoms of anxiety or depression? Or having relationship issues? I am here to help. I am passionate about helping my clients overcome their difficulties, learn to be compassionate to themselves and rediscover their courage.
I will always be sensitive to your needs while we work to deeply understand who you are, what is going on for you, and what you want. I will fully listen to you in a safe place with zero judgement, as we bring awareness to your issues and discover solutions. Feelings of shame, confusion and guilt will be resolved together, as I will challenge your thoughts to develop more balanced thinking and guide you to understand and express your emotions. It takes courage to ask for help, thus I see all clients as strong and capable of change, otherwise they would not be in my office. My commitment is to meet you where you're at and to help you feel safe exploring whatever you're struggling with. I can teach you skills for developing boundaries, regulating your emotions, communicating more effectively, and much more. I will support you to achieve your goals and to build self-compassion and self-reliance.
Online therapy for people located in Indiana and Washington State and wellness and coparent coaching (for separated parents) to people located anywhere. Sessions are held via a secure videoconferencing portal. My approach is Mindfulness-based Dialectical Behavioral Therapy for stress, anxiety, grief, mood issues, and life changes. I have deep experience with issues relating to parenting after divorce, anxiety and OCD, and issues of caretakers of aging family members.
I became a therapist because I believe that everyone deserves to have a gentle, non-judgemental listening ear while attempting to problem solve some of life's most difficult moments. For me, the therapeutic relationship is a special connection that allows for creativity, exploration, discovery, and empowerment.
