If you are wanting more awareness and skills to support you in feeling grounded centered and vital, then I would like to be of support. You may feel fatigued, have a loss of focus, distracted by over thinking, challenged by strong feelings and social interactions. You may be low or high functioning and yet still feel some of the above concerns. Anxious moments and/or depressive waves may be disrupting your sense of peace and you want new ways to interact with these moments so they can be lessened and life to become more easeful. You may be observing patterns in yourself and how you relate that you wish to shift and need some tools.

My approach to therapy is client-centered and research-based, meaning that I work with you to find which therapy style is most comfortable for you. Included are cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, "tapping", and mindfulness. These have been proven to be effective treatments for both mental health issues such as depression and anxiety, and physical problems like chronic pain. I also specialize in all forms of trauma. I will help to educate you about the different methods of therapy and the research behind why one method might be more beneficial than another for the issue(s) that brings you to therapy.

Healing is a natural process. It is not something that needs to be forced, only supported and allowed. Often the beliefs and strategies we formed when young were helpful and necessary at the time, yet they can linger on into adulthood and limit us rather than assist us. Therapy is a process of unwinding what is no longer true or helpful, exploring what is most essential and true for us, and resting into a deeper sense of wholeness, authenticity, and well-being. My job is to help you find your own answers, your own clarity, your own empowerment. I can help you discover what is needed to support this healing and this growth.

Do you feel unsettled, unnerved, or just stuck in the mundane? Do you ever feel like you're not good enough? Do fears, excuses or worries keep you from truly enjoying your life? You deserve to LIVE your life! Because we tend to adapt to our surroundings, we are often “just making the situation work.” We don’t realize we are experiencing more stress, overwhelming emotion, and burden than we need. There is another way, but finding it alone can be very challenging. My goal is to help YOU get where you want to be, have the life you want. I help clients to get up, out and make changes in their lives.

The goal of therapy is to enable people to have richer and more satisfying lives. I match my approach to the person I'm seeing, offering both short-term, pragmatic, solution-oriented therapy, and longer-term treatment that involves complex historical material and ingrained self-defeating patterns. I think of therapy as an opportunity to learn better ways to live and thrive in the present. I use a combination of approaches including EMDR, AEDP, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and longer-term work to change recurring patterns.

In addition to working with individuals I am also certified in Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT).
I believe you are the expert in your own experiences and the therapist's role is to guide you towards accessing the part of yourself that already knows the answer. Therapy is an opportunity to sit in a nurturing environment where anything can be said with acceptance. The gift of therapy provides a chance to hone your coping skills and bolster your resilience in your own time and at your own pace. In our work together I will meet you where you're at in your healing journey. You will have the opportunity to learn to activate your natural resiliency and self-acceptance to let go of shame, anger, or guilt that may be holding you back.
