Life is wonderfully perfect, until we feel it has come to an end. When that dark path presents itself, it is time to take a challenge that perhaps we have avoided for a very long time. A challenge could be perceived as a change which could bring new beginnings or a change, we may fear the most. The question we should be asking ourselves is, “Am I ready to take that challenge?” Mental Health is a part of the human anatomy that is needed for an individual to have the best quality of life. Individuals feelings and emotions are crucial to be validated for individuals to have that best quality of life.

Promoting healing & trustworthy engagement for children, youth, their families, adults who come seeking shelter, emotional safety and refuge (see abbeypsychservices.com). Even the youngest demonstrate remarkable strengths with precise, attuned, attention to their levels of awareness, given new experiences to help transform distorted cognitive appraisals of themselves, others, relationships, the world. Working together, we cultivate more accurate appraisals of internal/external experience, shift into clearer, more realistic thinking, enhanced empathy, healthier, more effective coping styles. We co-create new, hopeful, cooperative stories to replace hopeless, repetitive, "traumatic reliving" within the safety of a predictable, nurturing, skillfully maintained therapeutic environment.

Family life is both rewarding and challenging. Raising children is an important job and it can feel overwhelming at times. No two people parent the same way and how to blend two different life patterns and meet the needs of an individual child, while rewarding, can also feel frustrating. Having tools to navigate these challenges can help you feel confident and deepen your self-awareness. Working as a team with you and your child we will build on strengths and develop strategies for solving issues.

My goals as a therapist are to create a safe and supportive environment in which clients can share their thoughts and feelings freely, to learn more effective coping skills and interventions in order to ease symptoms and solve problems as well as gaining deeper insight about themselves, the world and their future. My approach is to meet clients where they are in life without judgement. Therapy sessions are collaborative where client and therapist examine and question client's distorted thoughts and core beliefs as well as developing positive strategies and healthier ways of thinking as they move forward in their lives.

Do you ever ask yourself, "Why do I keep doing the same things but expect different outcomes?" Or "Do I look at the world differently than all my family and friends?" Life can feel stressful, overwhelming, and out of control at times. I try to help life feel a little bit more manageable and work through issues at your own pace. Psychotherapy is about an exploration of self and the world around you. As a psychotherapist, I am here to provide guidance through this exploration in a safe place and to improve interaction with those you love.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 15 years of experience. I see children, adolescents, and adults in individual therapy who are struggling with a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, life cycle challenges, trauma/abuse and many more. People cope with and try to manage their past and present to the best of their ability. However, at times it can be overwhelming and may also create additional barriers as people often outgrow their coping skills, or their skills and tools are simply no longer working for them.

Are you suffering from the effects of trauma in your life? Are you finding that talk therapy alone is not shifting patterns of mood and behavior? I am a holistic psychotherapist with specialized training in Somatic Experiencing and the Neuro-Affective Relational Model. You may feel as though you don't know who you are any more, that life has become burdensome, or maybe you have the sense that you were never really your authentic self to begin with. Perhaps you experience physiological and behavioral symptoms such as addiction, overwhelm, and isolation. This loss of connection to self/other is indicative of trauma. I can help you.

I warmly welcome you as you are, and hold a safe space to support your intention for growth as your guide, witness, and companion. I enjoy working with clients who want more than traditional “talk” therapy. I offer experiential therapy, so you can go beyond cognitive understanding to having a transformative experience. I have an active style that is more than simply listening. I would describe the way I work as collaborative, curious, and challenging when it needs to be. I identify as a highly sensitive person (HSP) of gifted intelligence, both of which inform my work. My approach is mindfulness-based and somatic.
