I'm here to help you grow and change on your passage through life! Sometimes people have challenges to start with like thinking differently, or a difficult family. We may have questions about whether we still fit into a social or religious group. Challenges are harder if depression or anxiety hold us back or if we feel like we're stuck. Finding an empathetic, experienced therapist can be a connection to taking you out of isolation and uncovering your innate ability to change. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I have done my own work to grow and I look forward to helping you!

Often the first step towards making a change is taking a realistic look at where you've been, where you are now, and where you want to be. Although it can be painfully difficult at first, you can begin making changes, one day at a time, that will take you closer to living the life you desire. Using EMDR and talk therapy, we'll focus on healing the wounds of the past, finding joy in the present, and bringing clarity to your future. It's time for you let go of the things that hold you back and start to discover all the ways in which you were meant to shine. Hope and healing are at the heart of what I have to offer.

As parents, we all want our children to be happy well adjusted individuals who are taking steps toward reaching their full potential. So it goes without saying that one of the most difficult things to do is to watch our children struggle in school and feel powerless in knowing how to help them. If your child is performing below grade level or exhibiting behavioral problems at home and school, these constant struggles may be evoking feelings of intense sadness, anxiety, and frustration in both you and your child and negatively impacting other areas of both your lives.

My ideal client is one who wants to building a collaborative relationship that will help to foster change. I believe that most of the work of therapy happens in between sessions, so my clients will benefit if they are willing to practice the things that we agree will be helpful. I am less focused on diagnoses than beliefs, feelings, and behaviors that are amenable to change. I am hoping that my clients have decided that they are willing to be vulnerable at this point in their lives and that they are open to having me participate in their journey toward a more effective life strategy.

As a music therapist, I address many goals typically addressed in traditional talk therapy, such as learning how to deal with difficult emotions, use new coping skills, and connect with others in order to live a healthier, more fulfilling life. Although talking is a big part of music therapy, music allows me to create an experience rather than a purely cognitive discussion. This can be a powerful path to healing. It doesn't matter if you have never played music before in your life. The music is my job -- your job is just to show up and be open to the experience. Your openness may be the best indicator of a good match with me.
