Licensed Professional Counselor, MS, LPCS, NCC
If there's one thing I've learned in life, it's that everyone has a story. As a psychotherapist, I often think of my role as a keeper and healer of stories. I hold your story, the heaviness, the pain and emotions of it, until you are able to hold it yourself. I'm lovingly with you until you get to that healing place within yourself. Over the past 25 years I have had the opportunity to work in various settings with a diverse population of clients. I consider myself to be a generalist with areas of interest that include depression, anxiety, relationships, and trauma. My services are offered in-person or through confidential video conferencing.
Being a strong believer in the mind-body connection, my approach to counseling is holistic and humanistic. That is to say it is client-centered, non-judgmental and builds on personal strengths. I often use journal writing, body awareness and guided imagery as self-discovery and healing tools. I sometimes incorporate energy medicine healing techniques as well. I am an EMDR Trained Provider, “Journal to the Self” instructor and Integrative Yoga Therapy teacher.
My belief is is that you hold the answers within yourself, and my job as a psychotherapist is to help you find those answers. All healing is self-healing from this perspective. You are the expert on you. In this way counseling is a collaborative process based on our relationship and trust. My gift as a therapist is instilling hope and intuitively knowing what heals. If you are looking for a collaborator in your healing process, please reach out to me. I would love the opportunity to work with you.
