Life is difficult. Life is also full of change. At times, we may feel like things have not turned out the way we wanted them to. And sometimes, we just do not feel well and cannot figure out why. Regardless of the reason, everyone experiences feelings of depression and anxiety that we can manage pretty well most of the time. But, there are also times when it would be nice to have someone to trust and get a different perspective.
We all need help to get us to where we want to be. Trauma and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD); depression and anxiety; attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), sexuality and sex issues; spirituality; relationship and parenting concerns; thoughts of suicide; medical conditions; and substance use problems are examples of some of the things that can get in the way of who we want to be. I have advanced training and experience in treating these and other concerns. Accordingly, I take advantage of evidence-based techniques such as family systems theory, dialectical behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness, and trauma-focused interventions. I have found this blending of techniques to be valuable in helping others reach their goals.
