I understand how difficult it is to ask for help and how painful it could be to talk about things that are not working with a stranger. I feel honored every time my client opens up to me. I treat my clients with respect, kindness, and warmth. In my experience, therapeutic relationship is the foundation of the healing process and I work very hard to help my clients feel heard, understood, supported, and safe in my office.

I use a variety of different therapeutic approaches in my work, including Internal Family Systems (IFS), mindfulness-based, emotion-focused, cognitive-behavioral, and experiential. I often utilize EMDR, especially when working with clients who experienced significant traumatic events and/or losses in the past. As of February 2017, I DO NOT ACCEPT NEW INDIVIDUAL CLIENTS. My classes are still open and accepting new people.

I also offer SUPERVISION to the professionals working towards the following licenses: LPC, LPC-MHSP, Psychologist & HSP. I subscribe to the developmental model of supervision, and work with a professional collaboratively on reaching their goals, while maintaining safe and high quality patient care. I will be a good match for the individuals, who are open to examining their own reactions to the clients and willing to learn new approaches. Accepting new supervisees now.
