Counseling Services, Gilbert AZ
You may feel alone in your pain, but I can help you work things through.
Change can be uncomfortable and it's not always easy. You may feel lonely, scared, and overwhelmed with challenges that don't have easy answers. Depression and anxiety can make you feel exhausted and feeling like you are at war with yourself or with others. Relationship changes, the addition of a new child to the family, grief, loss, and many other life experiences are all situations that can bring up a variety of emotions.
Counseling can provide you with an opportunity to feel heard, receive validation, learn new skills, process emotions, identify solutions to challenges, and grow in new ways. My goal is to help you create a meaningful life using a compassionate, accepting approach.
I help with:
Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders
Grief and loss
Coping with illness
I use a holistic and eclectic approach to therapy that includes Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to support you in meeting your goals by examining the connection between how you think, feel (emotionally and physically), behave, and interact with your surroundings.
I teach mindfulness, cognitive restructuring, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness which help achieve growth and healing.
I am a Licensed Master Social Worker through the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners and am currently working under the supervision and independent license of Julia Spain, LPC. If you’re a new parent looking for breastfeeding support, please visit North Star Wellness.
My journey into the field of health and wellness began over 16 years ago when I found the challenges of being a new mother to be overwhelming.
In reaching out for help, I experienced first-hand how important and powerful it can be to have the support of other women while adjusting to the role of motherhood, and was motivated to give back by helping other mothers as a volunteer and then in a professional capacity as a lactation consultant (IBCLC). My work with postpartum women inspired me to earn a graduate degree in social work and become a therapist.
I utilize a strengths-based philosophy and have advanced training and experience in the areas of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, women’s health, parenting, and chronic illness and support clients through the various challenges that face us as we move through the different phases of our life.
I consider myself an eternal student who loves to learn and I attend what my children say are a lot of conferences and trainings. When I am not working, you can usually find me reading, watching a movie, attending one of my kids’ sporting events, hanging out with my friends and family, and occasionally singing karaoke.
