Announcement icon I will see fully vaccinated people in person, we will wear masks until seated and use hand sanitizer. I can also offer MS Teams or phone.
It is a beautiful experience to see people able to work through their trauma, set boundaries, learn healthy coping strategies and move on to a more peaceful, productive life. Therapy is more that just chatting, we will set goals and apply best practices to help you see the those goals reached. I offer a trauma informed lens with you and your well being the priority.
I have experience helping families, couples, and individuals deal with relationship issues, grief, anxiety, depression, trauma, and parenting issues.
As we go through life we all end up navigating rough waters and storms, but if we learn how to calm ourselves, the storms will not be as hard to navigate, we will be skilled sailors.
