It is my belief that these symptoms result from experiencing psychological and physical trauma .
Experience tells me that most people who seek counseling feel unable to make changes in their life that could bring them greater happiness. I consider it my responsibility and a privilege to facilitate your journey of self-empowerment to make these desired changes. Together we will explore how current patterns of feeling, thinking and acting could be altered by increasing mindfulness and self-compassion. While most of our focus is on the present and future, I also seek to honor your past by exploring how unresolved feelings may be hindering your growth and ability to meet personal goals.

Through a trauma -informed lens, I focus on the impact of attachment, earlier life experiences and the variety of somatic responses throughout those experiences.
I wholeheartedly believe that because the majority of our wounds occur inside relationship, healing will come through relationship as well. In our work, I can offer you warmth and empathy as we gently explore the ‘why’ behind what you do while uncovering your strength and resilience. My work with clients focuses on grief and loss, trauma , relational discord, anxiety, depression, body image, life-transitions, adoption-related issues, parenthood and the intersection of faith and spirituality with day to day living.

Unresolved trauma and stress can reverberate into all areas of life and show up in unexpected forms like excessive worry, relationship problems, and pain syndromes.
Using a holistic and somatic Attachment-based approach, I help people who are feeling anxious and overwhelmed experience relief. Are you so worried about how you’re living your life that you’re not living it? Motivated to be your true self, but are not sure who that is or how to get there? I work with sensitive systems that are seeking balance, relational healing, and a sense of identity. Together, we can slow down to begin moving through the anxiety and start placing yourself within your own story. Therapy with me is a gentle and collaborative process that nurtures unseen parts in order to release your creative energy.

I am passionate about supporting women, children, and families in understanding the impact of trauma and shame on our mental health.
Have you ever felt lost in life or that you made a wrong turn somewhere along the way? Maybe you have experienced a traumatic life event or your child is having difficulty regulating their emotions…Or perhaps you are disappointed by unfulfilled dreams and desires? I have personally come to believe that you are never truly lost but rather you are right where you are supposed to be in this very moment. Those various things don’t have to determine the state of your emotional wellness nor define you. Those life experiences can somehow work together and lead you to a place of wholeness, if you allow it.
