Traumatic memory appears without warning. It stops you in your tracks, invades, and overwhelms. In a moment’s notice, your body and brain feel hijacked. No matter what you try and bury it under: work, food, relationships – it’s still there. You may dissociate or maybe you’re watching it happen across the room, in your child’s face. You never asked for this, but, then again, neither did they. Whether you are seeking support for yourself, your family, or the child in your life, I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and walk through this with you.

Do you feel alone and powerless? Are you experiencing anxiety and lack of trust in your relationships? Do you keep finding yourself in stressful situations you thought you had evolved from? Try as you might, you just can’t get a grasp on developing healthy boundaries for yourself? A lack of balance within yourself can manifest as a painful day-to-day. You’re searching for an integrated life, one where your emotions, your intuition, and your spirit can coexist. This comes with confronting wounds, developing loving boundaries, and trusting yourself to the fullest. Such a life is within your grasp.

Emotional pain and mental challenges can overwhelm us and keep us from reaching our goals. In these times it is often necessary to seek professional assistance to move us past the ruts in our lives.

Have you ever felt that words were not enough? You've tried talking, but it doesn't seem to work, at least not for very long. You find yourself wondering what you can do to feel better. Coping with stress, living with uncertainty and meeting the challenges of everyday life are often difficult to describe in words alone. Imagine what it would feel like to enjoy the process of self-discovery, personal growth and understanding. Your creative process can become your road to emotional wellbeing - a safe and gratifying way to explore difficult experiences and emotions such as fear, sadness, frustration, and anxiety.

Becoming a mom can be incredibly hard when things don't go as planned. I specialize in perinatal mental health, helping women take care of their emotional and psychological well-being before, during and after pregnancy. If you've had a difficult pregnancy or childbirth, faced infertility or loss/pregnancy loss, you may be coping with challenges you couldn't have predicted. If you're not feeling like yourself and know that something isn't quite right, you're not alone. Postpartum depression and anxiety are common complications of pregnancy/birth, and many women find some aspect of childbirth traumatic.

Life is not a smooth road. There are many difficulties and challenges we face along the way. Sometimes we develop old wounds from the past that do not let us live the life we deserve. Those old wounds we call traumatic events. Traumatic events can develop from our childhood experiences, past relationships, employment, near death experiences or the death of a loved one. Traumatic events can continue to affect us in our daily life from experiencing nightmares to repeatedly viewing an unsettling image in our mind.

As a therapist, I am committed to empowering clients to live their best life, have meaningful and loving relationships, and most importantly, in the words of Virginia Satir, "help them have stars in their eyes and truly feel their own value." At times, as we move through the different stages of our life, we find ourselves stuck due to our unproductive internal dialogue of shame and guilt, the need to be perfect, and the daily attempts to be who the rest of the world wants us to be. This leads us to feeling broken and unable to love ourselves or truly connect with others.
