We have the inner wisdom needed to reach our highest potential. I work with the whole person, body, mind, spirit, in the context of individual experience, family, and community. Clients may withdraw or use substances as a response to trauma, experiencing addiction, depression or anxiety, as a coping mechanism. Clients are the experts of their own experience, and I facilitate the process of change to meet their needs more effectively. Through collaborative work with varied theoretical approaches, I meet clients where they are, develop goals and work through the process of small steps to make changes that shift the outcomes.
I work with adults, in individual, couples or family work. I specialize in areas of substance use and trauma. My areas of interest include PTSD, codependency, domestic abuse and relationship issues, stress and anxiety disorders, depression and grief, sleep disorders, spirituality, and life transitions.
I use mainly evidence-based therapies, with a focus on CPT (Cognitive Processing Therapy), Motivational Interviewing, CBT, family systems and communication tools. I also work with hypnotherapy, archetypal and dreamwork as modalities to access subconscious information. I work in the Gottman method of couples counseling.
