I am truly passionate about working with people who are ready to journey into counseling and invest in themselves. I know this can be unfamiliar terrain for many individuals, but my compassionate presence eases this discomfort. I have over 18 years of experience helping individuals suffering from stress, anxiety and depression, difficult life transitions, partner relational issues, interpersonal relationship difficulties, past trauma and abuse, perfectionism, shame, poor body image and low self-esteem. I value the therapeutic relationship where I cultivate a safe space for transformation, hope, and healing.
The concentration of my clinical work has been with anxiety and trauma. I have had extensive training in various therapy models and interventions over the years and find that my work is richly influenced by Feminist Theory, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), and art-based interventions.
I believe our relationship is the most essential element in the healing process. I would love to talk to you to understand your needs and how we could work together. Please contact me to set up a free 20 minute phone consultation.
