Life is a beach...
Except, you’re left alone in the water without paddles with the waves controlling and pressuring you to every direction. At times the sea is smooth and calm. Other times you’re in a storm.
You have tried to handle it yourself because, after all, you’ve been taught survival skills, following orders, and to be mission focused. You are taught to adapt and overcome with the expectation that you always have your sh*t together.
On the surface, you look fine but underneath you’re struggling to stay afloat.
The problem is we end up exhausted, frustrated, and just plain lost. You see the shore, but you’re stuck wading in this ocean current.
I’ve sailed on this ship and I’m here to tell you there’s a better way to get to shore through the unexpected tides.
Meet Your Therapist
You're here because you're ready and you want to make the right decision. You’re already taking the courageous step and doing the work to find the right therapist. As a military social worker, spouse, and daughter, my mission is to provide counseling that is safe, accessible, and convenient to support those who serve including the men and women of the armed forces, veterans, and their family members.
Your connection with a therapist is a critical part in your healing journey. A therapist who is going to help you get through the rough waters, guide you to the safe shore, and help you find the answers you're looking for.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, I also offer services to healthcare and frontline workers. I offer online sessions to residents of Alaska and Virginia. My entire goal is to help you gain clarity, create calm, find balance, and embrace change so that you can begin to heal and live your best life. I offer a safe space and guidance for you to access courage, discover renewed hope, and tap into your inner potential towards healing and wholeness.
My specialties include working with those who struggle with anxiety, trauma, depression, and life transitions, just to name a few. I tailor my approach using an integrative framework and utilize evidence-based treatment modalities such as Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), informal Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness practices.
Whether you're struggling with being your authentic self, a military spouse feeling lost in the ever-changing military lifestyle, or a combat veteran battling painful memories, I want to hear your story.
