I understand that sometimes life can be challenging and can hinder personal growth, happiness, relationships, quality of life, professional success, parenting among other things. You feel like you are spinning your wheels but not going anywhere. You feel exhausted, overwhelmed, anxious, apathetic, sad and/or irritated. You may be surprised to know that there are ways to cope with these feelings so you can grab the reigns and get back on that horse! You want to create meaningful changes but aren’t sure where to start. I believe that the catalyst to that change exists within each of us, sometimes we need a little help to find it. I have experience working with older adults, adults, (teens 17+), veterans, active-duty military and their families, college students, EMS personnel, and caregivers in the treatment of mental health and life transition issues, marital issues, interpersonal issues, deployment, military separation, reunification, divorce, pregnancy, work and school issues, parenting and end of life issues (grief/placement). I can also provide case-management services, life coaching and ESA evaluations/letters.

I specialize in uncovering the root causes behind feelings of anxiety and depression, helping individuals break free from unproductive patterns that may be holding them back. With over 30 years of experience as a therapist, I've discovered that when we expose these patterns and express the emotions tied to them, your true self emerges. As internal conflicts diminish, relationships flourish, and the authentic meaning and purpose of your identity come to light. My goal is to guide each person in developing a personalized plan that aligns with their values and unique contributions. I've had the privilege of working with individuals of all ages. For children and young people, I provide a safe space for them to express themselves and navigate life's challenges. On the other end of the spectrum, I've supported elders and disabled individuals coping with loss and grief. When emotions connected to grief are stifled, I specialize in identifying and resolving these emotional roadblocks, facilitating a path to healing and adjustment.

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to invest in your mental health. Are you having a hard time balancing family, work, and life? Are you struggling with avoidance and anxiety about the future? Are you just ready for a change and aren't sure how to make a plan of action? It's difficult to grow without support and even harder at times to find the tools to carve your own path. If you feel ready to explore how to reach your unique potential; let's figure out some goals, what's in the way, and how we can work through those challenges so you can reach your goals. My background in research, crisis care, inpatient, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, in-home therapy, group therapy and outpatient therapy has given me exposure to several forms of therapy. I am currently practicing CBT, DBT, ACT and some elements of other forms of therapy. If you are curious how we could approach your challenges and goals, please reach out and we can discuss options. Consultations are welcomed.

Hi there, I'm Alicia. Are you feeling lost or stuck in some aspect of your life and finding it hard to move forward? Is it hard to be kind to yourself? With your permission, I help to hold the container for deeper exploration and healing. I am a trauma-based therapist trained in EMDR, Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). I believe that each of us possesses an internal source of wisdom that can be cultivated through psychotherapy, psychedelic medicines, meditation practices, yoga and other connecting practices that link the brain, body and spirit. My therapeutic approach has a foundation of mindfulness and compassion, curiosity and respect. I often use EMDR as an evidence-based approach to working with trauma and other challenges. I am sensitive to the impact of one's social, physical and cultural environment as well as systems of oppression. Clients say my approach is warm, relational, collaborative, strengths-based and trauma-informed. I cannot do the work for you, but I can help you along the way, and it is truly an honor and a joy for me.

Greetings! I'm Michelle, and I am so happy you are taking this step on your wellness journey. We want to live our best lives. However, things can sometimes get in the way. We often feel as though our emotions are spiraling out of control, or that we are walking on eggshells trying to avoid negative interactions with those around us. We may be struggling to cope with the effects of trauma or feelings of worry, hopelessness, or detachment. We might have a loved one who is experiencing a chronic physical or mental health condition that influences our emotional well-being. These challenges can impact us in many ways. It is not uncommon to feel stuck or overwhelmed. Sometimes we may even feel as if our very identity is defined by the problems we are facing. You may feel isolated ashamed, or unsure of how to move forward. I love joining my clients on their healing journey. I help them identify the areas in their life that are preventing them from embracing their self-worth and potential. I use storytelling and art to separate the problem from the person. Utilizing evidence-based techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy will help you get to the root of the problem and develop skills to regain control. When working with children, adolescents, and teens I use my training in Play Therapy to create an experience that is relevant and engaging for younger clients. My job is to be a safe harbor while you grow during this process. I work with children, adolescents, and caregivers as they improve their sense of well-being, safety, happiness, recovery, and health. I’ve worked with many youth and caregivers who are missing out on the joy of living. My passion is helping youth and caregivers find the best parts of themselves and grow to love themselves again. Contact me today for a free consultation and we’ll get started on your journey together.
