Being in the present, being aware of your surroundings and of yourself, is essential to grow, learn, and heal from trauma and dissociative disorders. As you are in the present moment, the past is behind you and the future is ahead of you. It is important to be present because trauma, stress, illness, and dissociative issues keep us from feeling aware and whole. Therapy is an important space to explore many aspects within an individual’s life. As a trained EMDR, IFS, CBT, and DBT therapist, I hope to foster a comfortable, open-minded, trusting, and understanding environment to explore and process fragmented pieces of the self.

One of my greatest joys, is helping individuals, couples and families learn to manage the various, yet often unavoidable, stresses of life. Our days are packed with work, school, family, and relationships. We come home depleted and then it starts all over again the next day. Feelings of anxiety, panic, depression, anger, and/or lack of motivation, are inevitable. So it grieves my heart when clients ask what's wrong with them. So while we may need to "power through" certain situations, I help my clients develop strategies that are tailor made to their circumstances and personality, to successfully complete the marathon of life.

Are you overwhelmed, anxious, sad, frustrated or uncertain? These feelings are common human experiences that can leave you disconnected from your best self. I help my clients bridge the gap between where they ARE and where they WANT TO BE by understanding their priorities through a collaborative identification of barriers, fears and hopes. We then design a treatment plan to develop insight about how internal thoughts and belief systems have evolved from unique life experiences and how they influence current interactions and behaviors. Effective strategies to cope with limitations are built upon a foundation self-awareness.
