About

We all know life can be challenging. However, sometimes parts of it can get too challenging, and we can’t seem to resolve our issues on our own, or even with the help we're currently getting. Whether it’s depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, grief, or stress (or a combination of these), the way we’d like to live our life can seem out of our reach. This can happen to just about all of us at some point. The good news is we don’t have to struggle alone and a professional can really help change things.
Together, you and I can examine what is holding you back, and collaborate on a plan tailored to you specifically and follow it through until the needed shifts occur. My approach is to listen to you attentively, without judgment while supporting you, so that you can feel safe to be yourself and talk about what you need to.
In addition, I utilize EMDR, Brainspotting and Emotional Freedom Technique to reprocess traumas, and use Ego State Therapy for dissociation and attachment issues. I also do dream work and interact with the creative imagination. People from all backgrounds and all orientations are welcome! My goal is to use everything I know to help you achieve your goals.
