I’ll help you develop a better relationship with your body, and find a greater sense of identity and stability in life. Whether you’re struggling with an eating disorder, chronic pain, poor self-image, or difficulty accessing and dealing with your emotions - I’ll help you get more in touch with yourself and find a style of living that feels more comfortable to you. My approach is trauma-informed, so we'll pay careful attention to the ways that difficult past experiences may have closed off some options for how to think, feel, and move.

Do you have “sticky” self-defeating thoughts that won’t leave you alone? Do you “know” you’re good enough but don’t “feel” it? Have you suffered the loss of a pet or loved one and struggling to find someone who “gets it”? I am here to help with these and more. We have all been faced with major changes and sacrifices since 2020. Some changes have left scares and holes in us. I truly believe that we all have the power to grow and heal within us; sometimes we just need a little guidance and specialized tools to get started. I can help you gain strength, motivation, resiliency, and a deeper compassion for yourself and your journey.

Is the past getting in the way of being the person you want to be? If it feels like you need to mend important relationships, find a better mood and attitude for living, and finally get a handle on your anxiety - I’m here to create a safe, supportive, calm space for you to heal. What I’ve found helps the most is having someone really willing to listen to your story and help you make sense out of it. As we talk through your life experiences, you can begin to heal from the pain of grief, loss, shame, & guilt. That will help you feel ready to start making meaningful changes to live the life you want, and let more love in.

Do memories of past traumas keep getting in the way of the life you want? Do you feel anxious, on-edge, and worried about the safety of yourself and/or your family? Do you try to hide your thoughts and feelings, because other people won't understand? Even though you're trying to manage it on your own, has your anger and isolation started to impact your relationships/family? If you feel this way and you are ready for a change, trauma-focused therapy can help you recover from the past and move forward with your future. Please know that it is possible to heal from trauma/post-traumatic stress disorder!

Hello and welcome! I am so glad you are here and have made a courageous choice to seek healing. Like our physical health, I believe we must also take into consideration the “vital signs” (mood swings, sadness, irritability, excessive worry, etc.) that indicate the state of our mental health. Whether it is caused by stress from overwhelming responsibilities, parenting, past trauma, or even just having difficulty communicating needs to family members and friends, I believe these can all be signs that we need a little extra support and I would like to be that support for you.

Does it feel like it's you against the world? I work with teens and adults who are having a tough time, acting out feelings in ways that don't get good results and not sure what else to do. You may not be satisfied with your relationships - missing a lot of red flags, or lashing out at people you wish you could feel closer to. Maybe it just doesn't feel like you belong anywhere. First let's find ways for the therapy hour to feel like one place where things can start to work better... feel safer, better understood, gaining skills to manage your emotions, learning how you come off to others and how to get better results.

I help people learn to become the hero of their own story. Each new transition you face in life is an opportunity to expand and refine your identity... but there are also pitfalls. We get hurt, we lose our way, we get caught up in shame and self-doubt. I work with a lot of grief, loss, and confusion around life changes. I've got a lot of experience with folks who have been adopted or in foster care — and people who find themselves feeling alone after a split from their family, their culture, or their religious faith. I'm passionate about helping people find their way into the next, better chapter of life.

I am interested in helping you reduce symptoms of distress. These symptoms often feel like being on the edge, sudden panic, running thoughts, sadness, worry, difficulty sleeping, or sleeping too much. It can also feel like feeling lost, misunderstood and easily distracted. My approach is to create an environment where you feel understood, seen, and heard. We can explore your struggles, feelings, thoughts, and guide you to examine your experiences with the goal of improving your quality of life.

I find it beautiful when people are unapologetically who they are! I believe that our scars and deepest fears have a way in shaping us to be exactly who we are meant to be in this life, and on our journey to self-fulfillment. I hope to help you navigate life so that you find happiness in who you are. I'll meet you with gratitude for the opportunity, and trust that together we can work through the aspects of your life that hinder your ability to feel happy. Reiki III Master energy healer.

Perhaps you are feeling anxious, sad, or “stuck.” You may be struggling with a transition, such as becoming a new parent, starting a new job, coping with a loss, or adapting to life after a difficult medical diagnosis. Or, perhaps you find yourself overwhelmed by fear and negative feelings for no apparent reason at all. If any of this sounds familiar to you, residual, unprocessed feelings from the past may be holding you back from living the life you desire. At Onward Healing, we specialize in using EMDR therapy to help you heal the wounds of your past, to enrich your experience of the present, and to clear a path onward.
