I specialize in working with adult survivors of childhood trauma. I have specific experience with sexual trauma, domestic violence, depression, anxiety, and life-adjustment concerns. I work with individuals seeking relief from Post Traumatic Stress and other trauma related disorders. I also have several years of experience working with teens and young adults struggling with mood disorders, family dynamics, coping skills, and emotional dysregulation. I provide a peaceful and supportive environment to explore past traumas, discuss current concerns, and plan for a more fulfilling future.

I am trained in EMDR and Ego State Therapy; both of which have proven tremendously effective in providing relief from trauma related disorders. I am also trained in TF-CBT, which provides a narrative approach to healing. I implement mindfulness, guided meditation and other spiritually based modalities to strengthen a sense of safety and calm.

I have spent time in a variety of countries and different cultures, including several years in Latin-America where I learned Spanish. I grew up in Massachusetts and Florida before moving to Utah as a young adult. I love the outdoors and nature. I believe that living an active and balanced life impacts the way we feel internally and how we see the world.

Las crisis de la vida a veces causan dolor, tristeza, confusión y angustia, ¡pero hay esperanza para seguir adelante! Hay posibilidad de sanar su pasado, tener felicidad en el presente y esperanza para usted y su familia en el futuro. Tengo más de cinco años de experiencia trabajando con clientes que han sufrido de trauma y violencia doméstica. Me especializo en trabajar con adultos que han experimentado trauma en su niñez, sufren de depresión, ansiedad o dificultad en acostumbrarse a los cambios de la vida. También trabajo con niños desde los 12 años que presentan depresión, ansiedad, cambios de humor, y dificultad social.

Desde mi niñez he viajado a México, Costa Rica y Guatemala, conociendo la cultura y aprendiendo Español. Así que puedo entender la cultura y sus experiencias dentro de ella. Ofrezco un ambiente seguro y confidencial para expresarse y encontrar medios para sentir más relajado en su vida actual. La mayoría de clientes sienten un cambio dentro 6-12 sesiones.

Acepto pagos de algunas aseguradoras y ofrezco formas de pago para los que necesitan. Espero poder conocerle pronto! Con gusto puedo responder sus dudas o preguntas. Por favor, llamame o manda un mensaje de texto.
