I want to thank you for taking the time to read this. Researching who you want your counselor to be is one of the first steps to your healing journey. Making the choice of who you feel most comfortable sitting down and discussing your goals and vulnerabilities with is an important and sometimes overwhelming decision. My goal in the therapy room is to always help you feel as supported and heard as possible. I use a client-centered approach and focus on the personal strengths and resiliency of each client.

So glad you found your way here! Have you heard the phrase "our issues are in our tissues?" This may sound strange but it’s the reason why traditional talk therapy alone is often not enough. As a result of negative life events, unhealthy relationships, pain, loss, illness, or modern-day stressors, many of us are unable to fully process our emotions, which become stored in our bodies and unconsciously drive our repeated behaviors and thought patterns. We become disconnected not only from those around us but most importantly, from ourselves. In order to move through current challenges, it's necessary to address both mind + body.

Having owned and worked on a farm, I have seen many parallels between healthy gardens and healthy minds. We need to plant seeds and thoughts that are viable for optimum growth.
