Life can be so unfair and being human is incredibly difficult, yet there is also so much beauty in life to experience as well! It can be exhausting to feel like you have to put on a front and be filtered in order to do life while suffering. Learning to find a way to hold and make sense of these contradictions can be a painful, confusing and complicated process! We often view things as being “either/or” when much of life is actually "both/and." My desire is to create a safe place for you to JUST BE…unfiltered…to help process, and receive rest for your soul and mind in order to heal and live life as your best self.

I've found EMDR therapy to be effective and efficient in helping people who are wanting to let go of heaviness and fatigue related to intrusive or self limiting thoughts, often brought on by disturbing childhood events. For couples, I've found the John Gottman, Phd Marriage Institute material in giving couples the insight and tools the need to to get them "unstuck". With children age 2-7 years of age, I've found that they can "play out" their inner conflicts through Non-directive Play Therapy and find new levels of self-awareness, self acceptance and self control.

They can come suddenly or have gone on long enough that you now need help navigating through to the other side. Some life events are not meant to be walked alone. Therapy and its process belongs both to the client and the therapist. A good therapist presents the same in the office as in their own living room. I am inviting you into my proverbial living room

"I worry that if people really knew the real me they wouldn't accept me and might abandon me". Does this sound familiar? This is a very common belief that many of us hold. Many of us struggle with insecurities such as pride, anger, and shame/guilt. Whatever you may be facing I want you to know that you are not alone. We were all made with a deep desire for connection, love, and service. I believe therapy allows individuals a unique and amazing opportunity to share their struggles, their hurts, their resentments, and most importantly their needs in a safe and compassionate environment.

Psychotherapy can be an opportunity for healing and transformation. When life seems to be stagnant, painful or overwhelming, a therapist can offer solace, guidance and a container for the psychological process. I have spent several years accompanying others on the journey through healing and have a unique style of working with people. I seek to offer a non-judgmental place to work through whatever is causing pain in the life of the clients I treat. I believe each person has the courage and ability to overcome what holds them back and to embrace the person they were always meant to be.
