About

You can't change what happened, but you can choose what happens next. Maybe you've behaved in ways you aren't proud of. These behaviors (substance use, anxiety, depression, social isolation) are ways you learned to protect yourself from pain. This is normal, and it’s okay. These unhelpful coping skills aren't protecting you anymore, they seem to be making your problems grow. You want to change your behavior to match your values, what's important to you. You want to live a life worth celebrating. I'm here to support you in moving from thinking to action.
We will work together from a trauma-informed perspective to reduce shame around your unhelpful behaviors. Your defense mechanisms may have protected you, but you're ready to break free. I provide the support and guidance you need to explore a new way of life. I encourage daily connection with nature, offer outdoor movement therapy sessions and a therapy dog.
You're in the driver's seat, I'll be your headlights. My goal is to guide you on your journey, lighting the road towards a life worth celebrating. Please email me or reach out for a free 15 minute phone consultation to see if we are a good fit.
