"For me, being a therapist is
a calling. I am passionate about what I do."

Michael Becker

You are tired of feeling unsatisfied and you are ready to feel passionate about life again. You are ready to make positive life changes to feel happy and to set yourself up for a bright and fulfilling future. You want to learn new ways of living, thinking, and coping to replace old, unhealthy habits. You have finally realized that artificial and only temporary lasting coping skills is not your answer. You are ready to find true, and sustained happiness.

 

I became a therapist because I personally know how hard it can be to live a life fueled by depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. I understand how hard it can be to overcome mental health and substance abuse issues. I have dedicated my life to helping others in the same way that I was helped through the therapy process. As a young adult, I was introduced to my first therapist and immediately knew that therapy could help me. To this day, some of the most influential people in my life have been my therapists. I still rely on these same therapists that supported me through my difficult times. I was inspired by the therapy that I received to become a therapist myself, and to continue to give the gift of therapy to others who are searching for a happy, fulfilling, and balanced life.

 

I know how hard it is to take the first step and reach out for help. I understand from my own struggles, and through the work with my clients over the years how important therapy is to achieving the life that you want. I am confident that I can support you in reaching your goals.

Life can be difficult but it is about to get better. Reach out now to get started immediately!

I help by assisting you in identifying and replacing:

  • Life stressors 

  • "Triggers"

  • Negative/Self Defeating Thought Patterns

  • Undesired Thoughts, Feelings, Behaviors, and Decisions

I strive to create a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients that is built upon trust, empathy, and positive support. I want to help assist you in improving your life and I want you to enjoy the therapy process.

 

I believe that the therapeutic process should be enjoyed and something clients look forward to each week. I aim to create an environment that each of my clients anticipate being a part of every session.

If you are ready to figure out how to implement positive change into your life then I want to work with you!

Life is complicated. At times, you may feel stuck, powerless, stressed or alone. I enjoy helping people understand themselves and their unique situations to figure their way forward and feel less overwhelmed. I am dedicated to supporting you to discover or re-discover the best version of you, no matter your circumstances or stage of life. 

I became a therapist because I have a deep compassion for the human experience and truly enjoy supporting you during the inevitable times when "life happens." For many of us, there are times when it is helpful to talk things over with a professional who can listen intently, without judgment, and offer insight and a supportive, fresh perspective.

I have decades of experience helping people who are dealing with depression, anxiety, parenting issues, difficult life transitions and adjustments, problematic relationships, grief, regret, uncertainty, and much more. I will take the time to understand you and your situation. I will assist you to uncover the unhealthy coping behaviors and thought patterns you may have fallen into and support you to develop new and improved ways to experience your unique life.

Let's work together to figure your path forward to a healthier, more fulfilled and balanced version of you-one where you are not merely surviving, but thriving!

Are you and your partner struggling with being disconnected? Is past trauma interfering with your ability to have a fulfilling relationship? Perhaps, you have fallen into unhealthy communication patterns or are unsure how to rekindle the passion you once experienced together? Healthy intimate relationships are pivotal to having a balanced overall wellbeing. You and your partner have concluded it is time to commit fully to growth and no longer live with the underlying disconnect and tension; to put in the effort to create a new happier and healthier functional relationship.

 

I became a therapist, with focus on couple’s therapy after developing my own personal journey as an individual and in the world of therapy working with clients. Relationships are a key aspect of being human; often we go through life having little knowledge about how to have a healthy and fulfilling relationship based on our personal experiences or education regarding relationships, resulting in dissatisfied and tense relationships. Through years of experience, I saw the impact that relationships, especially intimate relationships played on one’s overall health. I have experienced first-hand the impacts of trauma, depression, anxiety, substance use and major life transitions on marriage, the family system and individual self. As a result, I was driven and felt passionately to dedicate a career to help others learn how to navigate these seemingly painful experiences. In my personal experience, therapy saved my life; I believe it can for you and yours as well.

 

I understand there is often fear of the uncertainty associated with taking the dive into the therapy experience, especially as a couple. Having worked with a plethora of couples, families, and individuals with a multitude of sociocultural backgrounds, I am confident taking the first step will propel you towards the help you need to continue forward towards a happy and fulfilled life. 

 

Thankfully, the water temperature is great, so join me in taking the dive to change your life to be exactly what you have been longing for, with those you love. I am always here to help teach you to swim and remain afloat when experiencing the unpredictable waves, we will encounter.
