I understand the demands of being a caregiver. Being a caregiver is hard, whether that is for your own child or an older loved one. It can be difficult to put you first and remember your own self-care. I can sympathize that burnout is real. I've seen this throughout my career. I hope that my experience working with various backgrounds specifically the birth to five population, the Autism community, and as a crisis counselor, can provide a unique perspective to your needs.

Most of the time life goes along well and we feel satisfied with how things are going and what we are accomplishing.

Hello and thank you for viewing my profile. I have always had a bit of a different approach to healing than traditional therapy. My studies have been both in counseling and in spiritual arts, including astrology, chakras and energy/sound healing. Each of us has certain patterns, ways we exist in this world. This brings us preferences and personality traits. I can help you to better understand yourself, your needs and to use your energies most effectively. Healing blockages frees you from past traumas and current emotional patterns. I can help you to shift your life to more ease, joy and peace through understanding and release.
The therapeutic relationship seeks to establish safety and provide a calm, comfortable, open-minded, caring environment to problem solve, develop coping and self-care skills, encourage healthy relationships, facilitate growth, self-acceptance, explore past experiences, process trauma, and assist in finding greater meaning and purpose. I actively seek to listen with compassion, humility, and understanding, encouraging a gentle hope, to assist and empower you with the knowledge and skills needed for positive growth and lasting change.
I believe we all have the capacity for healthy growth toward being our best selves, however we define that to be. Sometimes old patterns, past traumas, unhealthy relationships, or unexpected life changes make that process difficult and can obstruct the path forward. My goal as your therapist is to help you decide what change looks like for you and to walk that path with you.

How do we get through this thing called life? I have experience working with teens, young adults and adults and families in individual and group settings

My passion is helping others through life's ups and down standing along side them in the journey. I have found through therapeutic sessions a common thread, and that is finding and holding on to hope, and the struggle in learning to truly love yourself. This can come from a number of reasons including past trauma, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, early childhood beliefs, and the list goes on. When an individual is comfortable "being in their own skin" they can move forward into healthy relationships and joy in life beginning to feel true love and hope bringing lifetime contentment.
