About

New clients welcome. There are times in our lives where dark clouds roll in. The rain falls hard and heavy. We sit by the window and watch hoping for the sun to shine again. During such dark times, we reach out to family members for support, but family isn't always available to offer hope. If I have to define my practice in one word, that word is SAFETY. Safety means building a professional relationship based on trust and communication. It means working together to set a pace and direction. This is something we work out together. I respond more quickly to email than I do to phone calls.
I am certifying in EMDR and am IFS trained. I work mostly with trauma, workplace stress, school stress and family conflicts among other things. If you are experiencing these things then you might feel it in your body. There is a mind/body connection when bad things happen. I help with this as part of our work together. ADHD is another area of focus for me.
I really love my career helping people. I love joining alongside someone to help them process grief, harmful memories or negative thoughts. I love the collaborative nature of therapy and the hope it brings.
