It is natural to experience a range of emotions; some flooding us thoroughly, and others frozen at our core. Sometimes we all feel challenged by life itself. This is why it can be helpful to seek out a therapist. My counseling practice is focused on helping adults and teens who struggle with trauma, depression, anxiety, and chronic stress. The foundation of my practice is layered. In order to effectively work together, I believe that it is important to understand your past, as it informs your present. Much of our resilience stems from our interactions with attachment figures—It is necessary to consider the context of our life.
In my work with clients, I utilize a variety of modalities. I have advanced training in Somatic Experiencing and Sandplay, and use EMDR, IFS, and mindfulness. My goal is to help you renegotiate your experiences, while decreasing uncomfortable sensations and symptoms. Together, I can help you access the necessary skills for healing.
I know that reaching out to a therapist can be scary and uncomfortable, and trust can take time. I aim to create a comfortable and secure space, so that we can take the time to create a true therapeutic relationship—-a relationship where you can feel safe enough to heal. If you feel ready to take this step, or are curious, I look forward to talking with you.
