I see individuals as capable of living a full and joyful life. I am here to facilitate the removal of those blocks, caused by past traumas, and / or difficult life transitions, that might be getting in your way. As we work together from a compassionate, strength-based perspective to remove the negative blocks (emotional and mental pain) from your path, life becomes easier and more joyful. As you heal mentally, emotionally and physically you will begin to attract those experiences and relationships into your life that are healthy, more fulfilling & enriching. My master's degree in Counselor Education has prepared me for this work.

What change would you like to see in your life? I would like to see you make that change. Individual therapy takes an expert and a consultant. The client is the expert on their own person and life experiences, and the counselor is the consultant who is hired to help identify and problem solve that expert's barriers to success. I specialize in helping people gain emotional stability, a strong sense of identity, and the self-confidence they need to make changes in their lives that they want to make.

Accompaniment matters. Relationships transform. We sit together to access the health that is at the center of every human being, even when one of us can’t feel it. We sit because healing happens in relationship, access to true self is made easier in the presence of another person’s settled nervous system, and because your healing matters for the health of all of us. Whether you are facing overwhelm, anger, a frozen feeling, compulsions, depression, trauma, anxiety, or facing other difficult experience, we can touch it with awareness and respect. Our experience includes joy, includes pain, and includes connection and compassion.

It's hard for anyone to talk about personal issues. Anyone brave enough to do this launches themselves into a life giving process that increases the possibilities of their lives forever. It brings about unbelievable changes opening possibilities never thought of. It's hard work. It's scary. But it teaches one to live effectively with what life has brought and create changes that enhance the life that is. It's a journey into the good and the bad that takes a person to new heights. It's an exploration that creates love and light in a life.
