About

Welcome! If you are struggling (relationally, socially, emotionally, or mentally) and want to know that you are going to be okay, you have come to the right place! My goal is to provide a space where you can feel seen, heard, and validated in your unique experiences. Through the healing journey, you will have the opportunity to process experiences in a more adaptive manner, as well as learn helpful coping skills to enhanced your overall emotional wellbeing. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.
My therapeutic approach is to integrate holistic, trauma-informed, and evidenced-based treatments into the Counseling process. We will work collaboratively to learn and implement new and adaptive coping skills. I also utilize EMDR as a way to help clients process traumatic and difficult memories that may be influencing current functioning.
Together we can work to provide you with more adaptive coping skills to ensure you are living the best possible life. Call me today to begin your new life journey towards healing! I am here for you!
