We will work together on identifying your strengths as it is important to know how your current decisions and mentality are contributing to your life’s challenges.

I am certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Trauma Focused CBT, and trained in EMDR.
It has been my passion to help people improve their health and well being for over 30 years. I started my career as a Dietitian/Nutritionist, helping people improve their health through nutrition counseling and behavior change. I soon discovered that it takes more than knowledge and good intention to change long held habits, beliefs and behaviors. Childhood trauma, poor self esteem, unhealthy attachments, faulty thinking and dysfunctional relationships all impact our ability to value ourselves and to live a healthy and fullfilling life. I became a psychotherapist to more fully address the whole person - heart, mind and body.

When we are exposed to trauma at an early age, it can seriously impact how we feel about ourselves and our relationships with others. Trauma can also profoundly affect whether we feel this is a safe world and can contribute to depression, anxiety, and relational/familial issues. My practice is from a strengths-based, trauma-informed perspective with a non-judgmental framework. I aim to understand clients’ internal responses and to provide more options for emotional regulation and problem-solving.

I believe that one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Beginning in therapy can be a way for you to start to put together the pieces of your life and who you are. And ultimately, you deserve to live a life that leaves you excited to wake up every morning. If you're someone that struggles with depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, LGBTQIA issues, and past trauma, I'd love to help you work through those challenges. I want to be the therapist that helps you along that journey.

I incorporate my intuition, creativity, sensitivities, & bubbly spirit to facilitate a space to connect to your inner knowing, & to heal what brought you to this search. Occasionally, you may protect yourself by going on autopilot & moving through the motions. Pain can manifest through avoidance, dissociation, depression, or anxiety to bury it until we have the space & tools to actively & intentionally heal. It is a learning process to remember how to truly connect to our intuition that can become entangled behind our masks, roles, responsibilities, & expectations.

Our life experiences can lead us to question our identity and purpose in the world we live in. This can lead us to anxiety, depression, and trauma. Do you want to improve how you face challenges, function in your relationships, and face overwhelming feelings? I place heavy importance on addressing trauma. Trauma disintegrates the parts that make up your whole self, which can leave aspects of who you are hidden from your awareness. Left unaddressed, anxiety and depression can worsen, which can rob you of the necessary connection that all human beings need to thrive. I aim to help you process unresolved trauma.

High school and college are especially difficult waters to navigate right now. If you're a parent, you want your son or daughter to be happy and successful, and you want to know they'll be okay now and into the future. It can be heartbreaking to watch them suffer. You want them to find someone they can feel comfortable talking to and someone you can trust. The youth I tend to work best with in therapy are those who are bright, capable, and motivated but they're being held back by anxiety, depression, or trauma. They are open to being in therapy and ready to give it a try.

I provide a safe and nonjudgmental environment for my clients. I believe that my job as a therapist is to work in a partnership with clients in learning more about themselves, resolving past pain and then achieving personal happiness. I do not believe in forcing my lifestyle or goals on a client but rather helping them find out who they are, what goals they have for themselves and what positive and healthy ways they can achieve these goals. Personal growth and happiness is a goal that is unique to each individual. There is not just one way to achieve happiness.

Welcome! As a therapist, I deeply value what it means for someone to be seen for who they truly are and who they want to become. Working through a person-centered, queer theory lens, I provide a framework for the comprehensive infusion of LGBTQ+ issues under the umbrella of multiculturalism. By utilizing this therapy style, I guide people to trust their intuition. Whether this includes assisting clients to identify their needs, set boundaries, or become grounded in their day-to-day lives, I aim to help people achieve their goals in the ways that feel best for their body, mind, and spirit.

While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
