Grief is the inevitable cost of love. To fully comprehend the grieving process and overcome its challenges, it's essential to understand that grief is a necessary experience that does not follow a linear path. Grief coaching is a non-therapeutic approach that shifts the perspective that grief is an ailment that requires treatment, repair, or a cure. Instead, it empowers individuals to accept their normal and natural reactions to loss, giving themselves permission to grieve. Together, we can reach an improved level of health and wholeness, and ultimately, a life of joy again. I'm excited to embark on this journey with you!

Are you tired of arguing with your own brain or body in ways that most people don't seem able or willing to understand? Getting help does not have to be another insurmountable task. If you have found yourself having to work harder than you believe you should to maintain stability or need a safe place to process with someone who shares some of your experiences, give me a chance to help you learn more about how your own system works and renew your perspective on you. My holistic approach to trauma-informed, neurodivergence-affirming practice is tailored to your needs with tools to help in both an immediate crisis and long-term goals.

A unique approach to psychotherapy. ART is unique because the ART Therapist guides the client to replace the negative images in the mind that cause the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress with positive images of the client’s choosing. Once the negative images have been replaced by positive ones, the triggers will be gone. Imagine, if you can, what it feels like to carry a heavy burden for years and then, all of a sudden, be able to let it go – years of carrying the effects of trauma gone during a single session with an ART therapist, This type of relief may seem unbelievable, but it does happen consistently with the use of A.R.T.

My approach to healing is holistic; that is, I encourage clients to look at all areas of their lives, (physical, spiritual, emotional, and social) and do my best to assist them toward achieving the balance that I believe can promote long term, overall health. I believe that achieving this balance is an individualized process. My clients appreciate that I offer a ton of support and make them feel safe in therapy, yet don’t shy away from giving direct feedback and ideas, or challenging a thought or belief that might be getting in the way of progress.

Congratulations on making the decision to consider getting therapy. I sincerely look forward to assisting you on your life's journey. In order for therapy to be most successful, it is important for you to take an active role and for you to know that you are in complete control, although our relationship will be collaborative. My role is to empower you in your growth process so that you will be more capable of facing life's challenges in the future without me. I don't believe in creating dependency or prolonging therapy longer than necessary.

My counseling style has always been focused on building a strong therapeutic alliance with my client. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My motto is that we all have bad situations in life (death, abuse, divorce, etc.) that we experience in life that can trigger some negative thoughts, emotional feelings, etc., and it is important to respond to these situations in a healthy manner or we tend to stay in that negative space longer than we ever intended.
