Life's stressors can feel overwhelming, and sometimes downright debilitating. Many of us struggle with managing obligations in our personal and professional lives. This can leave one feeling anxious, depressed, fearful, hopeless and distraught. Therapy can provide a safe and non-judgmental environment in which to unpack and unload some of the emotional baggage that has been weighing you down. I offer a warm, supportive, non-judgmental approach, and believe a strong therapeutic relationship is key.

There is a wholeness and knowing that exists within you. Therapy is the incredibly special process of cracking that open. It is a space where you can show up and be authentically you, which is hard for most of us to do. Many of us have been deeply hurt, traumatized, or disappointed by our families and close relationships. In turn, we are wounded, and react from that space. But often through societal pressures, we walk around smiling and pretending to be happy, when internally we are battling depression, numbness, or anxiety.

Treatment is a step-by step- discovery. I work with a psychodynamic approach that encourages a more mindful understanding of how our past may influence our present. Our work together supports deeper personal growth and balance in mind body and spirit. I encourage conscious rather than automatic living by assisting clients to overcome past difficulties and traumas to grow to a new full potential of their choice. I have a unique ability to connect with clients that have multiple stressors and life changing events guiding them to embrace change and create a new view of life.

The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.
