Work with Keri to identify your own unprocessed trauma and/or take a deeper look at trauma you've already identified. Transform your old trauma and the relationship you have to it.

Have you tried counseling before and still feel stuck? Do you believe your state of mind is holding you back? Don't give up! We come to counseling seeking relief from painful thoughts and emotions. We fear something is WRONG with us. EVERYONE struggles with mental distress but that doesn’t mean we are mentally ill. Suffering is a part of the human condition that all people share. We get lost in our heads and emotions overwhelm us. But suppressing thoughts and feelings only makes them stronger. What else can we do? We can look AT our thoughts instead of acting FROM them. We can accept our feelings and move beyond our pain.

I commend you for taking the first step in self-discovery and healing! I invite you to share your feelings and emerge with a "Lighter Heart." I want to hear YOUR story. Does the world often overwhelm you? Do you seem to "feel" things deeply or become easily emotional? Then you may be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). HSPs are more prone to over-stimulation, depression, anxiety, addictions and relationship difficulties. As a Highly Sensitive therapist, I can help you to recognize the benefits and hardships of this trait, be more productive, have better relationships, and protect yourself from overwhelm.

I’ve been a practicing social worker for over 40 years. My personal and professional belief is that how well people function is about how they process their life events. Through resiliency, the healthy tools they have learned or will learn and the belief in oneself, self-forgiveness and self-acceptance can emerge. As a result, people can learn to be their better selves. I help people identify what’s working in their life, what they are proud of, and what they like about themselves. We will identify past tools that have been effective, and begin the process of healing and change.
