Therapy can help you move through the pain and stress to the future you desire.
Therapy should be a safe place for you to work on goals, gain skills to better deal with life challenges, and/or to take back your life from the effects of trauma, depression, or anxiety. I customize my style for each individual and use evidence-based interventions to help you reach your goals. We can work together to help you find understanding, and catalyze growth and healing. I worked in the corporate world for 10+ years, and understand the struggles of managing a team, proving your worth, and finding time and ways to care for your soul.

I love working with clients with issues that hinder their daily lives: PTSD, chronic pain/illness, mood disorders, codependency, and much more.
Therapy is all about healing. Healing from the past, old wounds, thoughts or feelings that aren't serving you anymore. So often, we have learned various ways of living to get through the days, to cope, but it's surviving and not truly living. For most, facing those things seems scary and that fear keeps them from living the life they want. I see my role as a therapist is to foster a space of safety so healing can occur. Through compassion, honesty, and ultimately connection, I work with my clients to help them move towards their best selves.

My background in nursing and kinesiology blends beautifully with therapy for trauma and chronic illness . I have experience working with adolescent and adult women recovering from codependency, trauma, emotional abuse, depression, anxiety, and low self esteem. I have curated a unique, focused style of therapy that combines somatic exercises, creativity, and evidence-based therapies. I operate from the perspective that the healing process is not about changing ourselves. Rather, healing is simply creating space for the seemingly dark, ugly, and shameful parts within us. These parts want to be seen and accepted, just as we all do.

My specialties include childhood sexual and physical abuse, hypnosis for anxieties/phobias and chronic pain, and teaching couples how to communicate with each other so that each feels truly heard and understood.
I'm interested in clients who want to maximize their capacities to work, love, and play. My clients typically deal with anxiety, depression, shame, chronic pain, relationship issues, spiritual issues, and many other factors that are inhibiting them from the realization of their full potential. It is vitally important to me to establish an extremely safe therapeutic environment with my clients so that we can then deal with issues in a direct and expedient way.

Many people struggle with conveying compassion toward themselves and their own pain.
Thoreau said "There are a thousand hacking at the branches to every one striking at the root." In therapy, I believe our most valuable work is striking at the root of issues rather than hacking merely at the many branches/symptoms of the root. This latter approach often leads to resolving one manifestation of a problem only to experience new manifestations down the road. Whether the symptoms are anxiety, depression, addictions, or maladaptive relationships, it is worthwhile to examine the deeper sources of our pain. One of my primary roles will be to provide a steadfast ground of compassion, patience, and truth for your work.

When needed, I use EMDR to help clients release trauma, fears, & stored pain from adverse experiences.
It's a big decision to see a therapist. The thought of sharing deep hopes & fears can feel daunting. I offer safe space, free of judgment, to work on the changes you are seeking. I hope you will feel empowered to ask me (or any other clinician you are considering) about major concerns prior to scheduling. Growth work can be crucial: in order to find connection within ourselves, with our spirituality or sense of life purpose, and to make fulfilling relationships possible. Do you just need to regain your focus? If you do take this step, I'd be honored to work with you to journey toward more meaningful, joyful living.

Chronic perfectionism, while helpful in the short term, can lead to stress, relationship issues, and chronic pain/illness down the road.
Are you feeling stressed, overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed? Maybe you've been having thoughts of not being good enough or questioning your identity. You might be the kind of person who is used to having it all figured out and can usually manage things on your own, but lately it’s been feeling like too much to handle. Stress is starting to negatively impact your relationships, health, and work. Trying to carry this weight can be emotionally and physically exhausting especially when you’re trying to do it alone. That’s where I come in.

Your current pain and struggle need not define who you are.
I work with clients wanting to heal from all kinds of painful experiences and challenges in their lives. Often what brings someone into therapy, their current struggles, are symptoms of an underlying unresolved experience which has thrown life out of balance. Anxiety and depression, for example, frequently are a pattern of being stuck in a state of imbalance, following a significant loss, heartbreak or trauma. The goal of therapy is to restore the natural integrity and balance within clients, empowering them to lead creative and fulfilling lives.

My approach to therapy focuses on combining cognitive and somatic therapies to build internal resiliency, strengthen the connection to yourself, and reduce the blocks to healing allowing trauma to clear. Talk therapy is not enough. The goal is to connect to your true self, and have the freedom to find positive and affirming ways to enjoy relationships with self and others. Experience life without shutting down or disconnecting, and/or using destructive behaviors to reduce pain and distress. When the distress and pain are reduced, destructive behaviors lessen and the result is living life with peace of mind and authenticity.

Specialty areas include anxiety disorders, trauma exposure, traumatic brain injury, pain management, hypnosis and visualization techniques.
I believe that when a patient comes to see a therapist, they often ask these questions. "Will I feel safe, will I be heard without judgment and can this unknown person be trusted?" The therapeutic relationship is the most profound, protected, and valuable asset created between the psychologist and the patient. I am in awe of my patients courage and their ability to trust, so that the issues grappled with can be explored and understood, and that ultimately they can begin to heal and grow in ways that are both needed and desired.

I also have expertise with treatment of chronic pain using the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Chronic Pain protocol.
Do you currently struggle with a painful or even traumatic past? I believe in active acceptance as the most effective path towards change. Through a focus on values, clients learn to accept a difficult past towards a vital life in the present. To their credit, most clients have already tried to "get rid of" difficulties before therapy. They typically make the decision when realizing that their well-worn coping tools don't work and they're overwhelmed. Ideal clients are ready to actively engage in a collaborative process challenging them to let go of control/avoidance strategies towards a committed life in the present.

It is my honor to work with clients on paths of exploration, personal growth, and healing. Because of the pain that often brings us to therapy, I believe that safety, unconditional positive regard, and authenticity are of the utmost importance in the therapeutic relationship. My theoretical orientation in counseling is primarily psychodynamic and interpersonal within a humanistic framework. I believe that past experiences inform current understanding, and exploring such issues can be healing. Change can also be related to a new understanding of relational patterns and a new experience of relationship with the therapist and others.
