My goal is to gently lead clients toward discovering their blocks to personal growth and fulfillment. I believe it is vital to develop coping strategies in order to experience relief from painful symptoms while gaining insight into your core beliefs. These beliefs can create blocks to achieving the life you want. They govern the way you walk through the world, your thoughts, feelings and behavior. You are not what happened to you, you are what you choose to become. My specialties include individuals seeking to gain mood regulation, recover from trauma , improve self-esteem and create healthy relationships.

I believe we are all renegades, worthy of living a life of liberated love. Our binary world makes it challenging to feel accepted, leaving us fragmented and hindering our ability to connect with ourselves and others. I strive to create a safe and affirming space for clients to engage and connect with their whole self. I am passionate about working with individuals, partners, and the LGBTQIA+ community struggling with libido, erectile issues, self-esteem, trauma , spirituality, desire discrepancy, infidelity, intimacy, gender identity, and sexual orientation. My ideal clients are ready to fully show up and claim their pleasure.

I work with varying levels of disconnection and trauma , including narcissistic abuse, and explore both past history and present symptoms.
Are you struggling in your relationship and/or wanting a deeper level of connection overall? Talking to someone to help you better understand & identify the signals your body is giving you as well as your patterns & defenses, can create positive and lasting change. I also enjoy working with couples - helping partners to understand the underlying dynamics at play in your relationship & supporting conscious transformation. I love doing this work, believe that it is both beautiful and empowering, and view it as a privilege to work with you. Life is a journey and it can be comforting to know that support is available.

Mental health challenges and trauma often perpetuate harmful beliefs about ourselves and our relationships. It feels like the “puzzle pieces” of your life are damaged or even lost, making it difficult to see the bigger picture of who you are and your capacity to build meaningful connections. My individual clients tend to be creative, nerdy, ambitious, and/or spiritual people that feel discouraged by not realizing their potential. Couples and families I work with long for connection but feel overwhelmed navigating their unique perspectives together.

Do you have trouble with anxiety, depression, and relationship/family issues due to trauma ? Past experiences can create imprints onto your brain that activate your fight/flight responses whenever your emotions feel dysregulated, but life without the constant feeling of being on edge is possible. Those traumatic memories don’t have to permanently influence who you are meant to be. Through therapy, you will gain control of your feelings/thoughts and your response to everyday life hurdles. Healing from trauma can create healthier beliefs about yourself and your relationships along with sustainable changes.

My specialties include a Christian focus when working with couples who are experiencing relationship difficulties (divorce, separation, infidelity, life stage transitions); child/adolescent problems (ADHD, anxiety, depression, peer pressure, bullying and social skills); adoption, foster care and blended family issues; and individuals struggling with depression, anxiety and issues related to loss and trauma .
As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

Because pregnancy and parenthood can be traumatic, I use a trauma -informed lens.
Has being pregnant or a new parent completely changed your world? There are many joys to parenthood, but the transition can also bring newfound stress. Pregnancy, parenthood, and loss often times can trigger new and old wounds, which makes it a critical time for getting support. I offer a compassionate and judgement-free space to help alleviate any difficulties and guide you into a healing space. In addition, I offer therapy for high-risk pregnancies, pregnancy termination, and loss.
