If you’re living a full life, in relationship with other people, you will experience unfulfilled expectations, broken relationships, and disruptions to your plan. Humans are complex, and challenges are unavoidable.

So if struggle is normal, how do you:

gain clarity in order to move forward through a difficult time?
adapt to a change?
become a confident, self-assured person living your best life?

You don't have to go through life challenges alone.

At Pivot Counseling, we understand, and we can help.

We know what it’s like to have a situation or event shatter your sense of stability and self.

We’ve walked with hundreds of people through similar events over the years - through depression and anxiety, divorce and loss, career changes, big moves, and other life-altering decisions - and helped them find clarity and confidence.

We will listen to your story with empathy, help you identify what is truly keeping you stuck, and empower you with the tools you need to move forward.

Everyone at Pivot Counseling is committed to helping you live a full and meaningful life aligned with your deepest values.

As we journey through life, we can sometimes find ourselves in dark and lonely places. When we are in these places, it can feel like there is no way out and no hope.

I am here to help you find hope, to see a future, and to begin a new journey toward wholeness and fullness in life.

I will provide a warm atmosphere, free of judgment and criticism. I want to come alongside you as you journey through life. Whether you are dealing with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, or you just need someone to listen, I am here for you.

I have experience working with both adolescents and adults. I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of clinical settings. My broad range of experience will enable me to meet you wherever you find yourself and help you get to where you want to be in the future.

Integrative, connected, holistic, and person-centered are just some of the words that I would use to describe my therapeutic approach with my clients.

I believe that your body, mind, and spirit are all connected and play a crucial role in your healing journey, and understanding this connection can encourage you to thrive and heal on a deeper level.

Prior to pursuing my Practitioner’s license, I worked with clients as a Certified Health Coach. With a holistic lens and an integrative approach, I believe that one size does not fit all. Using mindfulness techniques and a combination of different theoretical approaches, a holistic approach can help with depression, anxiety, emotional difficulties, trauma, stress, family issues and work-related problems.

I want to provide a space where you can be fully present. My intent is to deeply listen so that you feel seen and heard.

I want to work with you to find treatment that is specifically tailored to meet your goals, make lasting change, and find ongoing healing.

Do you need help to resolve anxiety and trauma, especially "stacked trauma"? I have a variety of approaches, which are frequently useful to people who have had recent or early traumas.

Different clients benefit from different tools, including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), hypnosis, energy tapping, and relaxation. Your sessions will be tailored to your needs.

I have been a practicing therapist since 1997 and receive referrals from a wide variety of places and specialties. I am certified in Bessel van der Kolk's approach to trauma therapy. I teach DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) to groups. Neuroscience and psychology are rapidly advancing fields, and I continually search for and implement tools that will help people achieve body/brain balance.
When talking with your friends isn't enough...
Friends are great, especially when they’re good listeners. But your friends aren’t trained to offer you the help you really need. You can get coffee with your best friend, go shoot hoops with a buddy, or talk over dinner with your loved ones, but their advice is clouded with bias that can make you feel more confused than ever.

You need support as you figure out what you should do next in your life. You need an unbiased, safe person to walk with you through your struggles and empower you with the tools you need to regain clarity and direction.

Pivot’s counselors can give you the support you want, and the clarity you need.
Healing is a journey.

When I first came to see my counselor, everything seemed so overwhelming. My days felt foggy and there were times when all that would pop into mind was "I don't want this anymore." Now that I've been seeing my counselor for several months, I'm so much more hopeful. I can face the challenges of my day, like work and parenting, and not have to numb out all of the time. I'm more engaged with my life,  and more connected to my family and friends. Working with my counselor through Pivot has saved me.
