About

Growing up without the right emotional support or with abuse can leave adults feeling a lack of sense of self..."Who am I? Am I allowed to feel this way?" This creates difficulties with decision-making and relationships, and the overall quality of life is unsatisfying. You may look “well put together” but inside you feel an empty numbness. The impact from yesterday can cause today to feel like a burden and decreases one's ability to thrive. Most times only symptoms of depression and anxiety are treated which only further avoids the core issue. We can safely address the core issues in therapy helping you gain BETTER WELLNESS.
When we work together a focus is on healing from the pain and moving into a space where you can better access your own ability to thrive. This can lead to increased self-esteem and feeling better about how you interact with the world....Showing up as the parent you want to be, the partner you want to be, and most importantly the person you want to be.
My passion is helping people heal from childhood trauma by teaching them how to move past the hurt into a more stable and peaceful experience. Helping you learn that you don't have to be held back by the past, your thoughts, or emotions and how to live a BETTER life.
