For my work with couples, I have training in the Gottman Method.
** I am currently accepting new clients** Welcome! I believe deeply in each person’s innate ability to heal and grow, and I offer a safe, compassionate, and non-judgmental space for that process. I work with clients of all ages, as well as couples, who are experiencing anxieties, trauma, depression, relationship issues, life stressors and life transitions, including motherhood and coming of age. My approach is strengths-based and eclectic. I am a Certified EMDR clinician, and have found that EMDR is one of the most effective methods to stimulate the brain and body’s natural ability to move toward wellness.

**Accepting new clients** Is overwhelm your new normal? Do you give everything you have to others without stopping to replenish yourself? If you are an empath or highly sensitive person, you probably struggle to set healthy boundaries. This leads to burnout & compassion fatigue. I hope you are ready for change. It is possible to heal from chronic stress. So, if you are challenged by anxiety, depression, insomnia, family conflict, divorce or trauma, let me help you. Let therapy be your safe place to unpack your feelings, hopes, and fears. Let it be a place to explore current or past trauma. Let it be a place to process and heal.
