Flourish with Compassion

Psychotherapy

 

About Me

Welcome! I hope that this website helps provide you with hope and options that will foster healing and self-compassion so you can flourish.

I've been a psychotherapist for over 18 years and I view therapy as a safe, non-judgmental space to be heard and  understood & to be empowered to develop insights and skills to foster self-growth and positive change.

I offer individual and couples therapy, as well as psychoeducational workshops.

Are you a farmer or in a farming family?

As a farmer's wife, I understand the unique challenges of farming and the impact on your own well-being and relationships with others. 

An individual appointment will give you the opportunity to talk to someone that understands and will help build your resources and resilience.

Feeling stressed, anxious or overwhelmed?

It's natural to feel stressed or anxious when there is too much on your plate or simply not enough of the good stuff to offset the difficulties.

Schedule an appointment and we will build coping skills using your strengths and help you find the  balance that works for you. 

Feeling 'blah', unmotivated, irritable, or depressed?

Sometimes the difficulties of life can weigh you down and make it hard to enjoy the things that you used to.

If you find yourself struggling and wanting to learn how to manage your mood and reconnect (or perhaps discover!) your passions and interests- schedule an appointment.

Struggling with communication and connection in your relationship(s)?
Is that critical voice just too strong? 
Struggling with issues related to eating and your body?

Did you know conflict can be healthy in relationships? Learn how to develop an increased understanding of your partner and allow this to improve how you talk about challenges and strengthen your love.

Schedule a couples therapy appointment (90 minutes) or an individual appointment (60 minutes) if your partner isn't ready yet. 

Sometimes we believe that we can improve or motivate ourselves by pushing ourselves and having high expectations. Research* indicates that self-compassion is far more effective than self-criticism in improving our mood, relationships, motivation and overall well-being.

Schedule an appointment to learn how to be kinder to yourself.

Find yourself eating too much or too little, or jumping from one diet to another? Are you consumed with thoughts about what you ate and how you look? Schedule an appointment so we can work on helping you develop a healthier relationship with your body and food.
