Clients come to us with anxiety, depression, trauma , self-harm, relationship issues, and life transitions.
“Easier” doesn’t always mean “better”. It can feel “easier” to distract ourselves. It can feel “easier” to run on autopilot. It can feel “easier” to ignore our emotions. But does it really make us feel “better”?

In addition to working with children and families, I have worked in the area of Trauma and PTSD .
I have extensive counseling experience working with children, adolescents and their families. I have training in Art therapy and Play therapy to direct children through the counseling process. Children are better able to explore and relieve their symptoms through expressive therapy techniques. These expressive therapies work in conjunction with behavior and cognitive behavioral techniques to allow children and adolescents the ability to understand their problems and solve them. In addition, I work with the family and the parents to ensure comprehensive treatment and support systems. I have also worked with adults on parenting issues, coping strategies, and marital issues.

Trauma can make you feel like someone has robbed you of your innocence, purpose, sense of belonging, your voice, and ability to feel safe in your own body. You might be searching for a sense of control, but feeling completely powerless. You escape into activities or relationships in order to feel anything at all and other times to make the feelings stop all together. You may have developed parts of yourself in order to survive, but what would life look like if you could shed old scripts and truly live a life that’s worth living?

I practice from a trauma -informed psychodynamic perspective.
Do you find yourself wondering if anyone really understands what you are going through? Are you experiencing overwhelming emotion, but struggle to find the right words to explain these feelings? I want to hear your story and help you on the path towards healing. As a counselor I provide a non-judgmental, safe and caring place for you. In addition to traditional counseling, I am also an art therapist. Art therapy can be beneficial when words fail to help us express ourselves. We will use the process of creation to come to new insights about difficult situations and emotions. I can support you on your journey of personal growth.

You want to talk to someone, but are having a difficult time finding the right person in your family or friend group. Don't continue to bottle your feelings and let them build up until they explode in an unhealthy manner. Seeking help through therapy can be the first step to taking back control of your life.
