Therapists in Moapa Valley, Nevada NV
As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, a trauma survivor, and someone with a chronic pain disorder; I approach the work that I do from a place of empathy and personal understanding. I have an intense passion for understanding personal identity and the way race, culture, class, and sexuality come together to form what we believe about ourselves and what we feel we can accomplish in our lives. Anxiety and trauma can live in our bodies - together we will create a relationship that fosters dynamic and lasting growth, tapping into undiscovered reserves of resiliency that will help navigate the past and prepare for a more hopeful future.

Many women find themselves struggling in their relationships with others and themselves. You may find yourself working so hard to please everyone else that you lose sight of what you want and need. You also may find yourself stuck in the same dating or relationship patterns that leave you feeling disconnected and unsatisfied. As a result, you may struggle to feel fully present in your life or feel like you’re repeating past patterns in your dating life, relationships, and daily life. You may start to second guess yourself or focus on what others think instead of what you feel is right for you. These patterns may leave you feeling “not good enough” and wondering if you’ll ever figure out how to live the life you desire. Fortunately, you can overcome these challenges to create lasting, healthy, and fulfilling connections with yourself and others with therapy that’s designed to meet your unique needs.

Psychologist, Ph.D., CMHIMP, CTACC
In searching for a therapist, you are taking the first step in what could be the most important journey of your life. It is definitely possible to make important, lasting improvements in your life and levels of happiness, satisfaction, and success. Therapy is often an effective way to attain these goals. With almost 40 years of experience working as a counselor and then a psychologist, I am well-qualified to help you identify what is standing in the way of increased life satisfaction, and help you effectively work towards your goals. People often get stuck in old patterns that make them unhappy, want to change them, but don't know how. I work together with my clients to understand how old patterns in thought, feeling, and behavior got established, and then explore how best to change those patterns. I enjoy doing longer term, deeper work with clients, to create significant, meaningful, and lasting change. I often employ a holistic approach, exploring personal history, thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and relationship history and issues, as well as issues including medical history, self-care habits, and experiences of spirituality. I view the therapy relationship as a partnership, respecting the pace and timing that the client requires.
