Are you struggling? I want you to know that you are not alone. We all have painful experiences. They are part of the human condition.  I believe it is how we respond to these difficulties that determines not only the extent of our suffering, but also how we are able to transform our pain and loss into strength, power, and growth.  The most impactful experience we can provide each other is to be fully present and listen to one another's stories with open hearts and minds.  Through transformative relationships we find hope and effect change.

Areas of Expertise

trauma, anxiety, depression,

sexual abuse, addiction & substance use, self-esteem, grief & loss, spirituality, life transitions, relationship issues

 
My Approach

I counsel adults from mindfulness-based, attachment, existential, emotion focused and somatic theoretical perspectives. I am EMDR trained and incorporate this treatment modality when appropriate. I utilize various treatment approaches tailored to your specific needs. 

​What does this mean to you?

  • I meet you where you are at, and we formulate your goals for therapy together.

  • I believe that you are capable of growth and change at any point in your life.

  • No matter how difficult your circumstances, you always have a choice in how you respond to those circumstances.

  • Experiencing your core emotions is essential to reaching an openhearted state in which you are calm, curious, connected, compassionate, confident, and courageous.

  • We experience our emotions and hold our trauma in our bodies. Healing is possible as we allow our bodies to process old wounds.

  • Your mind, body, and spirit are equally important to your health.

  • Practicing awareness and acceptance of your thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations on purpose in the present moment is key to alleviating your suffering.

  • All change and growth are born of acceptance and compassion.

 

I look forward to accompanying you on your journey of healing, growth, and change!
