I help clients who struggle with not feeling good enough in relationships, people pleasing, feeling inadequate, and those that deal with repetitive negative thoughts that leave them feeling trapped. Do you have thoughts related to being broken or a failure? I understand that intense feelings of sadness, shame, anger or guilt feels heavy. Pain on your heart can leave you feeling hopeless, exhausted, worthless, anxious and frustrated. I know you want a way out of pain. It is my commitment to support and challenge you to do the work necessary to reach your goal in life. I believe you have what it takes to change.
I serve individuals and groups. I utilize CBT, DBT, IFS and EMDR. I utilize skills! I have been foundationally trained in DBT and EMDR. I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I enjoy collaborating with clients who struggle with depression, emotional distress, fear of abandonment, grief related to life transitions, stress management, etc..
I have a passion for utilizing skills to help clients manage/reduce symptoms of depression/anxiety. I believe in showing up as authentically as possible with my whole vivacious personality to build warm connections. I am tough and gentle. I accept you as you are and I push for change to bring you closer to your goal. I hope my style resonates with you.
