EMDR trained. For the last 8 years I have worked with trauma survivors providing compassionate therapeutic care. Every person’s story is unique & how we cope with life’s struggles will be different for each of us. I believe each person has the wisdom, strength, & skills to heal. The key is to find out how, believe in what you’re doing, & apply the methods. I can help you discover parts of yourself that have been dimmed & or never explored. At times we all feel stuck & lost. During these times, it is crucial to ask for help & find your way again. I would feel honored to be a part of your journey. My space is safe & free of judgment.

At different times in our lives we can reach a point where we face challenges that seem to knock us off our feet. This can be anything from a loss, trauma, a significant life transition, coping with chronic pain, declining health or merely adjusting to a new role (spouse, parent, caregiver, career change). Sometimes it is an expectation that we had that did not turn out the way we anticipated. Life is difficult.

I operate through the therapeutic lens that within everyone lies the capacity to heal, to regenerate and to create the most fulfilling life for ourselves. We all have our own unique blueprints for what it means to thrive, and to live a life of authenticity, alignment and equilibrium. With that acknowledgement in mind, we all also carry forth intergenerational, cultural and relational wounds that are just as unique and important to be unpacked and understood.

When people say, "There's no time like the present", I believe they're saying something that applies to counseling in a wonderful way. In the present moment, change is possible -- sometimes in small steps, sometimes in surprising ways. Over the years, I've seen my clients gain new perspectives and find emotional healing. Whether we want to deal with anxiety, have better relationships or get "unstuck" from our problems, I believe healing and change happen through awareness, non-identification, and compassionate acceptance. I serve a wide socio-economic and culturally diverse population from all age groups.

I am honored to do the work of holding space for individuals and families as they process through past and ongoing traumatic and distressing experiences. Integrating Trauma and Attachment-Focused Therapies, Play and Art Therapy, Mindfulness, Existentialism, and Psycho-education, I assist clients in healing and growing from what they have experienced in life. We are incredibly resilient and the strength within us sometimes needs a little guidance when we find ourselves in the dark. We will likely look at communication issues, attachment, choosing more effective coping strategies, and finding new ways to make life full and meaningful.

We as people are all broken on some level, but we don’t need to stay that way. Depending upon the cards we have been dealt in life, what’s been done to us, and what we’ve done to ourselves, many of us develop fractures in our view of the world. These “fractures” affect how we view ourselves and our relationships. No matter what you are going through at this stage in life, you don’t need to struggle alone. There is hope! Whether you’re dealing with relationship issues, career problems, abuse, anxiety, depression, or self-destructive habits, change is possible. I believe that every person has the capacity to heal, grow, and change!

Life is weird. It can be overwhelming facing the ups and downs, and sometimes feeling spun all around, with no idea which way to turn or what to do. Past traumas, life stress, relationships, anxiety, depression... without some way to keep our bearings it can feel like we are adrift in stormy seas with no raft. If you need someone who understands, who can explain what's happening and help you find a map back to yourself, you can reach out. I am accepting a few new clients at this time with one in-person spot available at my Chico office, and am available by phone or zoom for those out of the area as well.
