About

Anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationship issues, lasting effects of past trauma, and other sources of upset can be stressful and challenging to handle. Choosing therapy can be an important step in support of relief, healing, and reaching goals. In therapy, problems and challenges can be re-framed as opportunities for improved self-care, reflection, positive action, learning and growth. I draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, the Gottman Method for Couples, Mindfulness Techniques, current research on habit formation, as well as many other relevant and helpful tools to assist you in reaching your goals.
I invite you to show up as you are. I am here to support you as we explore what is going on, where you want to go, and how to get there. I am a strong believer in tools and offer as many helpful tools and practices as I can to benefit you. The past is important to explore inasmuch as it affects the present, but the goal is always to have a better life now.
Therapy may include working to identify and change habits, thoughts, actions, and trauma triggers that are holding you back from making progress in your life. I work with individuals and couples to help facilitate inner and outer change. I am pleased to offer a free phone or video consultation to meet and explore whether working together is right for you.
