What does success look like for my clients?

  • Decreased Insomnia

  • Increased Resilience

  • Increased Compassion

Stresses, disorders, and mental health issues are all normal parts of human life. Why go through life suffering when instead you can get help and start to feel healthier, happier, and lighter by addressing the problem and working with me to solve it.


By providing individualized, evidence-based treatment my patients have reported emotional, behavioral, and physical improvements. Mental health recovery is a personal journey of achieving a happy and meaningful life despite the presence of stresses, disorders, or mental illnesses.


Whether you are looking for individual therapy, couples therapy, or therapy for the entire family, we will work together to create a healthy environment, healthy mind, healthy body, for a happy life. Please reach out if you have further questions about me, my practice, or how I can help you and your loved ones.


 is an important aspect of resilience

As a tree blows in the wind, and as the wind becomes stronger blowing the tree, the tree will bend to accommodate the wind or else it will break. When the wind stops, the tree resumes its original upright state. This elasticity is an important aspect of resilience: A stressor disrupts a person’s normal state of functioning, but when the stressor passes, the person eventually resumes his or her normal or pre-stressor level of functioning. Some people are slow to resume normal functioning but are still resilient relative to a person who never recovers (Lepore & Revenson). 

The Path of Resilience

Life is inevitably stressful

Individuals respond differently to and manage life's stressors. Resilience is a transformative process.

International Resilience Coaching

Evidence-Based Techniques from Coping to THRIVING!

Coaching is a way to get the perspective, insights, and skills you need to create a life that meets your measures of success, it is not therapy. Coaching focuses on the present and the future. Focusing on the goals that you want to accomplish in your life! It's about harnessing the best that is within you and inspiring you to live out their potential. It's a wake-up call, challenging individuals to tap their inner abundance. Coaching often involves the creation of a personal reflective space where the client can explore issues and options and formulate action plans in a confidential, supportive environment

Therapy shouldn’t be scary

Online Adult Therapy

I work with many methods of treating my clients, but I create a treatment plan that is specific to what my client needs and what they are comfortable with. Some of the evidence-based techniques I use in my sessions are:

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

  • Psychotherapy (Talk Therapy)

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)


I combine these evidence-based techniques with holistic alternative methods, such as:


  • Nutrition

  • Meditation

  • Mindfulness

  • Herbal Medicine

  • Life Coaching

  • Emuna Coaching

  • Reiki

  • Equine Assisted Learning

  • Therapeutic Horseback Riding for Mental Health

  • Art Therapy


By combining these treatment methods and creating a personalized treatment plan for my client, we increase the success of treating the stress, the disorder or the illness.


During your therapy sessions, you'll have a supportive environment where you can feel comfortable sharing your personal story. It's important that you feel heard, seen, and understood during these sessions. Together we will build on your individual strengths to create small steps you can take today to start feeling better. You should feel accepted right where you are in life, but also feel challenged to reach your desired goals for the future.


Therapy shouldn’t be scary, although it should be challenging. By integrating traditional therapy methods with holistic alternative approaches, we will be adding a level of lightness, fun, and relaxation to a process that some fear.
