Looking for the right therapist can be challenging and stressful. When I sit across from a client, I value and respect that I am being invited into important, personal situations, thoughts, and vulnerabilities. My philosophy to clinical work comes from my belief that you are trying to do the best you can and want support to do better. I will both accept you for where you are at, while helping you pushing toward the change you are looking for. I collaborate with my clients to then tailor the therapy I provide to the individual-pulling on my experience, trainings, and the understanding that we all are human.

Anxiety can leave us feeling disconnected from the things we find most important, whether it's in the form of overthinking, worrying, or feeling like we are not living up to our own expectations. Eventually, anxiety can pull us away from our family and friends, our work, and our hobbies and interests. I have always been deeply invested in helping clients identify how anxiety may be keeping them stuck and empowering them towards meaningful change.

"There is something wrong with me" is usually where people begin to seek therapy. I take that phrase and propose an alternate perspective. People are not problems to be fixed but beings to be known. Pain, grief, frustration, anger, sadness, anxiety, depression and many other issues that are brought to the therapy room are better addressed when better understood. I choose to take on an integrative and holistic approach to therapy which gives each person the freedom to explore the many different facets of who they are that contribute to the concerns they present.

Have you had life experiences that felt too much, too fast, too soon, for too long, or not long enough? If so, this might mean you have endured trauma - leaving you with a longing for someone who understands. No one can define your trauma for you - you are the expert on how your story has felt for you so far. If you are looking for a therapist who will listen, educate, affirm, and support you - then you have come to the right page. As an EMDR consultant in training, I am also offering 1:1 consultant sessions to those looking to be certified in EMDR.

You’re exhausted, overwhelmed, and feel like you never quite get it good enough. You’re just.so.tired of beating yourself up. You try so hard. And so far, you’ve faked it pretty well. No one has realized you’re not quite what they think you are. You woke up today: (healthy?) lunch for your kids, enough make-up to cover the flaws, dressed in a (stylish??) outfit that hides that problem area. At work, you managed to get through the day without anyone pointing out how little you know or how many times you felt inadequate (should work more this weekend!). You come home, ugh. The mess…you just cleaned…why does it already look so bad??

Many of the problems we experience in life can be traced back to parts of ourself that are wounded or not properly integrated. I help you to reflect and make sense of your experience, and to work through areas of your life that bring discomfort. In moving through these discomforts/stuck areas in a new way, you release these wounds, become free from their grasp & move into more aligned, embodied & authentic living. We cannot fully integrate (become whole in our life) unless we heal and integrate all parts (this includes shadow work, healing parental and childhood wounds, ego work, sacred sexuality, reprogramming belief systems).

With over 15 years of experience in family and children’s mental health, and another 10 beyond that in child development/care, I realize that life happens in many forms, with everyone experiencing and perceiving it differently. I see everyone as an individual, whose shoes I can never walk in, but hopefully I can support and walk beside for a time. All people are challenged in their lifetime, but for individuals and their families who have special needs, this is an on-going quest.
