About

Overwhelmed? Everyone needs help occasionally through life transitions. Do you have trouble saying no? Do you feel like you do not value yourself enough or have difficulty setting boundaries? Do you have traumatic or abusive experiences (or episodes of panic)? Do you overanalyze things? I have extensive helping experience with these and other issues. I work to get to the root of these issues.
Each individual is unique and providing unconditional feedback is crucial. I focus on strength-based coping skills & CBT. I provide a warm environment & incorporate each individuals' differences with culture, diversity & sexual orientation incorporated into your treatment plan. Mindfulness, meditation & cognitions are key. I am trained in EMDR Levels 1 & 2.
Together we will begin to build your self-awareness in a safe, trusting environment. We will add to and improve your coping skills. I will help you by noticing patterns of behavior, setting attainable goals and we will work together to implement change. I look forward to working with you.
