I believe in helping people change from the inside out - not just addressing their day-to-day struggles but the feelings, beliefs and expectations that underlie them to bring about lasting change. By exploring these core issues and learning new tools to deal with them, you can break free from the obstacles that interfere with satisfaction and fulfillment in your life and relationships.

If you desire change and healing in areas of your life, I would love to walk alongside you in the counseling room to unpack your story and help you explore what that healing could look like. My aim is to provide a safe, compassionate, and authentic space for you to feel seen and known as you process your present and past. If you're hoping to address traumatic memories and PTSD symptoms, I also provide EMDR therapy as a specialized option for working through trauma and distressing experiences.

As a licensed clinical social worker, I have been in the field of mental health with a focus on complex trauma and substance use since 2013. When partnering with someone in therapy, my focus is relearning to care for our wounded parts with love and empathy. My clinical experience is broad; most recently my work has been with intergenerational trauma, managing emotional flooding, attachment, and creating a culturally compassionate space for Native folks.

My passion is helping people with trauma to heal the wounds of their past. Many people feel overwhelmed and broken. They struggle with anxiety, anger, and painful memories. Not knowing how else to cope, people at times pretend everything is okay – and at other times find ways to escape, leaving themselves feeling disconnected from what matters most. But there is a way out: to free the mind, body and spirit.

When our children's hearts have been broken, our hearts break, too. Parents often struggle with knowing how to care for a hurting child. The child's behaviors can be challenging. A parent's own unhealed wounds get triggered. Then, there's the parenting guilt! It can be overwhelming. We understand and we are here to help.

Have you found that you’re still depressed even though you’ve tried anti-depressants? Perhaps you’ve tried tapering off of them only to find that you become more anxious keeping you locked into staying on them forever, or maybe you just quit taking them all together because the side-effects made you feel less alive to the point of even interfering with your sex life. There is an alternate solution. From an energetic perspective, depression is actually seen as compression. This causes your life force to be squeezed, held down causing you to feel as if you’re withering away.
