My experience working with individuals covers areas of disruption from complex trauma, sexual abuse , religious trauma, grief, attachment wounds, abandonment and shame.
I believe healing is possible through an invitation to connect with your body, emotions, and thoughts. To build understanding about how your experiences, relationships, and culture have impacted your life. I seek to be a companion in the process of sharing your personal story as you sift through the well of your entire lived experience to discover your authentic voice. Together, we will use body based interventions, emotionally focused work, and brain-based approaches like EMDR to reclaim the chapters of your life where difficult experiences stole your sense of who you are, and nurture growth, healing, and overcome loneliness.

EMDR is a very powerful therapy that allows individuals to reprocess traumatic events (war, sexual abuse , bullying, grief).
Are you feeling overwhelmed? Are suffering from anxiety, depression or PTSD? Are you ready to make a positive change in your life? What change would you like to see happen in yourself and your life and how would you feel different as a result? Life can sometimes feel overwhelming and counseling can help. We can discover long-standing patterns that may be holding you back from experiencing a more meaningful life. Whether you are looking for extra support and guidance through a difficult situation or you are just ready to move to a new direction in life, I look forward to working with you.

My experience expands from helping families and children with special needs to relationship conflict, including domestic violence, sexual assault survivors, and divorce.
I enjoy working with clients who are looking to enhance the connections within themselves, their relationships, and their families. I believe growth happens when people have a safe place that encourages them to communicate what is often hard to express in times of distress, conflict, and traumatic life experiences. As a trauma-informed therapist, I work with individuals/couples/families and children, utilizing various relationally focused approaches, including play, to identify and support the challenges they are facing. Together in therapy, I strive to uncover healing methods that continually strengthen each chapter of your life.

I seek clients who are open to discovering their story and how it led them to their current circumstance. I am best able to nurture a relationship with a client who is aware of their reason for seeking support and is comfortable with a direct perspective to realizing their goals. My approach to working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families is centered on the philosophy that we are experiencing components of our personal story daily. When we conclude a chapter, it can impact the next chapter. By understanding our experiences and crafting our next steps, we can shape our story.

Our lives our deeply interconnected. There are moments when structures and roots of inequity serve as a barrier to access to reach one's full potential, purpose, and connection with self and others. As a human, you hold value and power and are keenly aware of the acute and chronic challenges you may face. Perhaps its impact on the ability to properly attach, heal, and thrive individually and in community with others has touched your life. You may be looking for someone to help provide space and tools for you to reclaim your own identity, narrative, and power.

Your once amazing relationship feels so hard but it doesn’t have to be. You have a deep desire to be your best self for you and your partner but it feels like regardless of your best efforts you continue to struggle. It used to feel so easy but you now find yourself on edge and agitated more often than not. When you try to share your feelings they often come out wrong or your partner just doesn’t get it which leaves you wishing you hadn’t said anything at all. It’s getting harder to engage on the smallest things.

My ideal patient is someone who may be struggling to find relief with just psychotherapy and/or psychotropic medications alone. This is a person who feels stuck and wants to seek alternative approaches towards improving their mental health. From children to elderly patients, neurofeedback is a modality that can benefit almost anyone with a wide array of presenting conditions. If your goal is to improve your cognitive functioning and flexibility and to not feel "stuck" anymore, then consider neurofeedback as a treatment option for you.

As human beings we learn, develop meaning, and create a sense of purpose through each other and the relationships we form. In the same spirit I believe the therapeutic process is driven by the relationship formed between the client and the therapist. This is why my approach in therapy is guided by the question - "How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for their personal growth?" I strive to create an empathic, nonjudgmental atmosphere where you feel safe and empowered to work toward personal growth and creating lasting change; forming trust and leaning toward vulnerability.
