Seeing a therapist varies for each client. During sessions with me, clients solve current difficulties in their lives, get a better understanding of themselves, and learn tools to better enjoy day to day life - as far as, improved communication, stress management, and/or anxiety reduction.

With my weekly support, clients identify feelings, behaviors, and miscommunications that are negatively impacting their daily functioning. EMDR Therapy can also be used to process traumatic experiences. Standing by their side, I support my clients to manage stress, redirect disturbing emotions, and set goals for themselves.

Then, little by little, the worry and sense of helplessnessĀ begin to lift. Clients find the hope, confidence, and determination to shift challenges that once seemed impossible into victories toward personal growth and a fulfilling future. Get in touch to see if we are a good fit!
