About

You deserve to feel balanced and strong. You deserve a meaningful and full life. Stress, anxiety and trauma can manifest in our bodies in a variety of ways which can impact our ability to experience happiness and clarity. My practice focuses on adults who have issues with anxiety, depression and trauma. I integrate the perspective of resiliency and take a strength-based approach to inspire change. It is not so much what happens in life as how we respond to life events that shapes our future. Through our work together, you can experience an improved quality of life.
Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is an evidence based therapy designed to heal the pain of difficult or traumatic events and experiences. It is also effective for anxiety, trauma and depression. As we target, reprocess and heal pains of the past, a new and more authentic self emerges. You reprocess the old visual memories, clearing the pain.
We can work together to get you to a better place, to build happiness and fulfillment into your life. Life is about the journey and each of us can build the life we choose through self awareness and effort. I honor each individual's journey and tailor interventions to your needs and goals.
