We all feel lost from time to time, but there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve been through my own therapy as a young adult when I was stuck in a bout of anxiety and panic attacks due to childhood trauma. Throughout my years of working with traumatized individuals, I learned first-hand about how childhood trauma can have a strong impact on adulthood. I can help you address unresolved trauma, in order for you to find passion, connection, and purpose in your life.

With a certification in Perinatal Mental Health (PMH-C) and expertise in treating reproductive trauma, I provide specialized care.
Do you worry that you're not being the best mom you can be? Do you struggle with thoughts that scare you - thoughts that you try to keep hidden from others? By sitting still, you may feel more isolated and disconnected, missing opportunities to connect with your baby. Allowing shame to take hold might prevent you from taking steps toward wellness. This is a transition that you can navigate successfully with a little guidance. Investing in wellness ensures you don't miss the opportunity to enjoy this time with your baby. If you reach out, you can feel more connected and supported. This is where you start, not where you finish.

Trauma, anxiety, and addiction can make you feel stuck. The most important step towards healing is to address the unresolved emotion inside you. Healing requires feelings. Acceptance slowly dissolves pain. When we function from the fear and scarring of our trauma, the cycles continue until we learn how to transmute that energy into love. I apply a Holistic approach that integrates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual forms of well-being, addressing the “whole” self. Through a holistic framework tailored to your unique needs, the goal is to support you develop a deeper understanding of the self on all these levels.

Most of us are able to go through the motions and present ourselves in a way that is perceived that we have it all together. While on the inside, we could be battling negative self-talk, the overwhelm of day to day life or trauma from the past, and struggling to cope with these big feelings in a healthy way. Maybe we are ready to make a change, but are unsure where to begin.

I use a trauma-informed approach when working with clients, and specialize in body-based and psychosensory techniques, including brainspotting, safe and sound protocol, nurturing touch technique, and expressive art therapies.
Wouldn’t it be nice if life felt like taking a well-traveled path – full of signs, directions and even tour guides to help us when we get lost? For many of us, life does not feel that way; it can even feel like we took a wrong turn along the way, and suddenly we are on a cliff-edged trail that is getting narrower and narrower. When we experience chronic stress – whether it be from trauma, relational issues, anxiety, depression or even sensitivity – life can feel hard. As pressure mounts, we can find ourselves reacting to daily experiences through outbursts of emotion, impulsivity, agitation or even numbing out.
