With an empathetic approach, I believe therapy is beneficial to someone needing support who is feeling overwhelmed with emotions and / or dealing with various life situations. I assist individuals to address things such as relationships, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, and behaviors. At times individuals may be too overwhelmed to examine specific issues. With a therapeutic approach, we will explore those barriers and problem solve ways to manage those symptoms while learning skills to be successful. My goal is to utilize techniques based on the client's needs and goals to help ensure a positive experience.

Are you struggling with the pressures of life? Do you have strong, over whelming emotions that seem to come from out of nowhere? Do you feel angry, or irritable, most of the time and don’t know why? Perhaps you don’t feel anything at all, and wish there was more to life than what you are experiencing now. Perhaps you already have a mental health diagnosis or another diagnosis of infertility or cancer or are struggling with a chronic illness. Are you part of the military, or a military family member, and are struggling with all that comes with that role including traumatic experiences, secondary trauma, and stress from many moves?

People are unique, and I help them make changes by entering into a relationship that honors who they are. This relationship fosters a safe place to heal old wounds, explore the vast realm of possibility, and reach a more peaceful state of mind, body, and spirit. To enhance our work together, I am experienced in many ways to communicate and integrate information. This may include traditional talk therapy, Parent Child Interaction Therapy, play and art therapy techniques, and EMDR as a tool to enhance insight into oneself and a person's role in relationships and their environment.
