About

I believe that everyone is resilient and has the ability to heal and grow. In my therapeutic practice, I have an empathetic and flexible approach to respond to each person's own unique strengths and needs. I see the therapeutic relationship as the core foundation to meaningful work together, and the client as an equal in the therapeutic process. I follow a trauma informed lens, and offer a holistic approach to healing involving body and mind interventions, including: Art Therapy, Talk therapy, Somatic (body) therapy, Mindfulness, & Psychoeducation.
I specialize in working with individuals who have experience trauma or abuse. My focus is to help individuals better understand their needs & their body/mind responses, and to gain tools that will help them feel better equipped to manage their daily lives and feel more balanced.
I work with teens, adults, and older adults (65+) in both individual and group settings. Areas of focus include: Trauma & Abuse, PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Disassociation, Self-Harm, Grief & Loss, Boundaries & Relationship Issues, Self-Care, Life Transitions, Burn out, & LGBTQ2+IA issues. I also provide supervision & consultation for RP (q) therapists.
