Welcome! I have spent more than a decade in trauma work and understand the arduous process to release the debilitating grip past trauma can have on a client’s present-moment experience. I recognize the profound courage it takes to look deeply within. I prepare my clients to find that invisible line between comfort and discomfort to set the foundation for lifechanging results and encourage them to live in their own authentic truth. Trauma healing looks different for everyone and I work side by side with each of my clients to design a path of healing that feels right to them.
I am experienced in helping my clients integrate past experiences to live wholeheartedly. I hold a master’s in Clinical Counseling and have worked with survivors of human trafficking for several years. I have training in EMDR, Internal Family Systems, Dissociation, Somatic Experiencing, and Mindfulness. I am also a certified yoga teacher (RYT-200).
I admire your courage. Finding a therapist is difficult and incredibly important. I may be right for you if you are searching for someone who will walk alongside while you: Process trauma, enhance personal relationships, cultivate self-worth and self-acceptance, practice calming, mindfulness, and embodiment and to let go of shame, regret and resentments
