"Entering into counseling takes both courage and vulnerability. I treat adults and children with trauma/anxiety and or substance use disorders. The approach that I use is one of trust and mutual respect, believing that every person has within them everything they need to grow and learn in life. Identifying and drawing forth those skills and strengths as well as an action plan for change is crucial for problem resolution. My approach in counseling is holistic as is my approach to self-healing, working with body, mind, and Spirit. They are truly connected. Working with any one area will impact the others."

"I help adults address the behavioral and emotional barriers to lasting weight management. My expansive experience allows me to meet you where you are. My clients say, "I know what to do but I just don't do it. " They beat themselves up for lack of willpower and feel like a failure. What really gets in the way may be emotional eating as coping and self care, not feeling sure of some changes while motivated for others, competing commitments or deep pattern of putting others before themselves. I partner with my clients get off the diet-train and embrace a healthy, self-designed lifestyle created with insight and self compassion. "

"Life is full of transitions: starting and ending relationships, changing residences, shifting the way we see ourselves and relate to our life situations can all create challenges which, at times, may feel overwhelming. Enlisting the support of an objective person who can assist us in coming to terms with the unresolved issues we face, or find new ways of seeing and being with our reality as it is, can help. I would be honored to work with you and explore the difficulties you are facing."

"Binaries can be stifling. Suffocating. Living in a world with prescribed ideals, roles, presentations and expectations is exhausting, terrifying and lonely. Maybe you’ve always known that something about you doesn’t quite fit the within the strict confines and regulations of gender and sexuality in our society. Maybe you’re just now starting to question things, or feeling confused and overwhelmed about your gender experiences, sexuality and identity.

"Most people who identify a need for therapy seem to be dealing with natural defense systems that help manage shock and developmental trauma. A defense response may be anxiety, depression, dissociation, psychosis, avoidant attachment, etc. A part of therapy is simply developing understanding and acceptance of defense mechanisms, then there is more capacity to reclaim or recover self regulation, co-regulation and self concept. I am interested in working with all people who have experienced trauma and as well as getting to the causal factors, developing grounding in the present and hope about the future."

"Imagine having the opportunity to create the life that you want, where anything is possible, there are no limits or barriers, and it is created by you. Now imagine doing it! Addiction and trauma rob us of the ability to address underlying issues that contribute to self-medicating. Recovery, growth, and change can be challenging, yet so healing and rewarding. I work from a compassionate, non-judgmental perspective to help you uncover your deepest healing potential. I believe we all have the inherent wisdom to create change in our lives.

When we don’t feel safe inside it is hard to really land and step into our destiny and deepest empowered values.
