Do you ever feel like your emotions and logic just don't line up together? Does it feel like you're stuck in a neverending cycle and the autopilot that once worked just isn't working anymore? Want to move forward in your life but feel like it’s a constant battle? I want to be there to help you through that struggle so that you can find the path leading to your goals while gaining a sense of self-awareness, fulfillment, and happiness that you deserve. I believe that people are their own personal experts in their lives, but sometimes we need help unlocking that expert due to times of becoming overwhelmed and shut down in the past.
Because each person is different, I utilize a variety of therapies in order to tailor our sessions to help each person in a manner that best suits them. I am certified in EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, and Brainspotting. Each of these therapies help to get to the heart of the issue vs just put a bandaid on it where it still exists under the surface.
When things overwhelm us, we tend to disconnect from ourselves and from others. You've taken the first step of trying to reconnect just by looking for a therapist (which is not easy to do at all)! I look forward to helping you to continue to reconnect with yourself so you can get out of the neverending loop and get on a path that you deserve in life!

Having your nervous system get overwhelmed due to trauma (AKA things that just don't make sense many times) SUCKS .... therapy can help to heal that overwhelm so things don't have to suck quite as much in life. It is not about erasing the past or trying to convince yourself that what happened is ok, but instead about being able to get out of the loop of feeling stuck in the past by processing it.

Trauma leads to disconnection and shut down ... healing happens when there is reconnection to others and yourself so that we can bring energy back into your system and allow the stuck trauma energy to be released. We all know that shit might happen in life, but that doesn't mean we have to hold onto it tightly for the rest of our lives.
