"My goal as a therapist is to help participants uncover their inner strength and ability to adapt to challenging life experiences. I enjoy creating new relationships based on the common goal of growth and I always attempt to make therapy an enjoyable experience, whether working with an 8 year old or a 49 year old! I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship as well as the opportunities for nature and therapeutic activities to increase personal growth. Most importantly, I believe in the ability for positive change to occur with an individual who is dedicated to this pursuit."

"I am a transpersonal therapist focused on healing the split associated with trauma. Trauma can disconnect a person from their original truth and create a disconnect in the mind-body and spirit of a person. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and the Inner Counselor are two highly effective approaches I offer. I see clients with panic disorder and depression, sexual abuse, abusive relationships, codependency and self-esteem issues and more. Bringing health and balance back around areas that have become compulsions (eating, sex, alcohol, relationships, etc.) is another important part of this personal healing journey."

"The question I’m always asking as a counselor is not, “How can I help my clients cope better?” but rather, “How can I help them not have to cope so much in the first place?” Coping gets exhausting after a while, doesn’t it? Maybe you’ve been in counseling before, (maybe for a really long time) and maybe you’ve already learned some good ways of coping. I’m more interested in helping you truly, permanently heal on a deeper level so you don't have to work so hard to just treat the symptoms. I've also learned that we usually can’t there just by talking about it. Talk therapy is often really helpful, but usually not enough. "
