Do you feel like you have done a lot of self-work and there's still something left that is not going anywhere? OR have you experienced one or multiple difficult events in your life that are simply too hard to overcome on your own? It really doesn't matter whether it happened as a child, teen, or adult, these experiences feel real and sometimes as if they are still happening right now. You see, we tend to embody them, meaning our body stores them and when we get "triggered" by a sounds or touch, for example, we are reminded of something that happened to us, which we have not yet fully processed. You and I can work through that!

Trauma dramatically shifts our experiences of the world and how we relate to others, leaving many feeling alone and stuck simply surviving day to day.

I integrate principles of psychodynamic, attachment, mindfulness and humanistic theoretical approaches into my work.

Choosing a therapist is an important decision. In my experience, the best therapeutic work happens when there is a strong relationship between you and your therapist. I believe that healing happens when you are able to share your inner world with another person and feel safe and supported doing so. My goal is to create an environment where you feel seen, heard, cared for, and understood. Processing your experiences in therapy helps to deepen self-awareness, and can positively impact your mood, functioning, and interpersonal relationships.
