Being human is messy and we all struggle at times, you are not alone! Embarking on a journey towards healing can feel intimidating, which is why finding a trusted helper matters. I believe that my clients are the experts of their own experiences and that therapy should be individualized to their needs and worldview. I place importance on creating space for my clients to feel their emotions, express themselves authentically, and explore their change process, through a kind, supportive, and empathic relationship.

Trauma, by definition, is "a deeply distressing or disturbing experience." Everyone has experienced a traumatic experience at some point. Sometimes we can process those experiences and carry on with our lives without any problem. Sometimes those experiences cause us to feel stuck, have increased anxiety, and irritability, have nightmares and be easily triggered. -It doesn't have to stay that way.- New Foundation Counseling provides trauma-focused therapy to all, regardless of age, gender, race, political or spiritual affiliation. Everyone is welcome. We specialize in working with pre-teens/teens and the LGBTQ+ community/allies..

Families are facing so many challenges, and taking that step to seek outside help is vital and brave. Before looking for a therapist, you've likely striven to help your child or teen in other ways at home and school. My primary role as your child's therapist is to collaborate with you and your child/teen to clearly identify strengths and struggles, and come up with a game plan to build connection, confidence, and stability. I utilize cognitive-behavioral, DBT, and trauma-focused approaches that are proven to reduce depression, anxiety, emotion dysregulation, and interpersonal conflicts.

It takes tremendous courage to admit we need help. To admit that certain areas of our life have become difficult to navigate alone. However, we get to choose how we approach these times. We can choose to see these difficulties as a burden. Maybe we even feel shame and guilt. Or, we can see these difficulties as an opportunity to take a journey on somewhat stormy seas. Navigating life’s changes can be frustrating and overwhelming at first. Whether you are seeking support for the difficulties that have come up in your current relationship, or you are seeking support for yourself, we want to assist you in navigating your way to calmer

It’s never too late to change your life, and I am willing to hold your hand through your darkest days for you to see the light. I believe that to be your best self, your mind, body, and soul must align. There are times in our lives when we feel a sense of disconnection from ourselves. This might be a result of old wounds (traumas) oozing into our lives, new traumas, life events that impacted us (deaths, breakups, having children, aging, etc.), or losing purpose in your life. When we’re feeling this way, we often throw gasoline on the fire with things that numb the pain, like drugs, alcohol, food, television, sleep, or work.

Many of us feel like we are “stuck in a rut,” collecting some not-so-helpful habits and coping strategies throughout the years like souvenirs from trauma gone by. It's my goal to help you take inventory of what makes you uniquely you, and help you clear out the emotional clutter that may be holding you back. Are you or your child struggling to deal with conflict, or stress, in a way that feels healthy and effective? Have the tensions at home or in your relationship become overwhelming? Are you or your child dealing with self-esteem, identity development, or emotion-regulation challenges?

Trauma-informed. Compassionate. Real. <— If I had to describe my therapeutic approach in three words or phrases, those three would be the most fitting. Trauma is more than just an event that happened in the past; trauma is also the imprint left by the traumatic experience on the mind and body. I recognize that “fit” is super important when choosing a therapist, and I strive to create a supportive and safe therapeutic space for all of my clients.

The days are blurring together. There’s a pressure in your chest that won’t go away. It’s hard to breathe because you are so overwhelmed. You see everything that’s not working but feel out of control. Distracting yourself with friends, alcohol, exercise, etc. used to work. Now, you’re stuck at home, unable to distract yourself for long. You hate who you are. Up to this point, you were surviving, but you want more. You think, “if only I wasn’t so sensitive.” Your whole life you’ve felt small, judged, shamed. There has to be more. You don’t want to be that person anymore, and you need help. You need someone to see the real you.
