Announcement icon I am still accepting new clients and am offering phone and video sessions for clients who are distancing or quarantined.
Now accepting new clients. Are you looking for a safe and challenging environment to grow? The foundation of my work centers on you becoming more of who you really are. My style of therapy is to listen and really understand what you are going through and gently support you through these difficulties. I don't believe in quick fixes, but I do believe in learning new ways to deal with old problems. Often my clients report feeling empowered and over time experience more peace and joy in their lives.
I have more than 15 years of experience working with women's issues including addiction, codependency, shame and trauma. I believe the ability to heal and grow is within everyone. I will work with you to move towards healing by listening, establish goals, processing difficult events and developing strategies to address the distressing symptoms.
I am also a Registered Play Therapist and I use a non-directive approach to play therapy which is both an empowering and effective way for children to process feelings. If you are not sure if therapy is right for you, please call for a free 30 minute consultation.
