About

I am passionate about helping people who struggle with anxiety, addiction, trauma, depression relationship issues, and more. I have advanced training in counseling modalities proven to help people heal and grow. Together we will explore the issues you are most concerned with, learn new resources, and get to know your story. I also offer "experiential," in-session practices to help process difficult emotions and heal trauma. (e.g. EMDR, ego-state work)
A basic treatment goal of effective therapy is developing a comfortable relationship. After a session or two you should feel like you like and trust your therapist. Otherwise you should keep looking. Some clients with a trauma history find comfort in knowing that I want them to move into their story gradually to avoid feeling too anxious or overwhelmed.
I consider our first few sessions an opportunity for us to get to know each other. I encourage clients to start by calling or email to let me know briefly what you are wanting to work on, ask any questions about my approach, tell me your scheduling needs are. If you have insurance please let me know which carrier as I am not in network with every company.
