At times, we can find ourselves dealing with unresolved feelings of anxiety, fear, self-doubt, shame, and trauma. However we can still blossom. The therapeutic process goes beyond the individual. It must be addressed within the individual and their environment, and should include their cultural experiences, practices, and traditions, as well as their spirituality; this approach provides collective healing. I practice a holistic approach to providing therapeutic care. I integrate components of the mind, body, and spirit within therapeutic modalities to address the needs of each individual or family.

Are you struggling with anxiety, sadness, stress, trauma, relationship challenges? Feeling stuck? Times are more challenging now than ever before. I often hear people think their problems aren’t “big” enough for therapy, but these small issues can impact functioning and quality of life. Or, they feel so lost or shameful. Good news - therapy doesn't have to be a life long commitment. My clients are often in a transitional period of their life or having a harder time coping than usual. This is normal! You deserve this opportunity to de-stress and take care of your needs.

I love to work with passionate people, whether it manifests in anger or intensity, and help to redirect that energy into positive motivation. I place special attention on working with stress, anger management, fertility issues and with substance use disorders. My specialization in recovery work from addictions came from experience working in both inpatient settings and outpatient counseling. Recovery work taught me to stabilize crisis situations and create momentum when clients feel stuck.
