" I am passionate about helping you become the empowered person you want to be while acknowledging and celebrating your present inner wisdom and resilience. Our life experiences and relationships can lead us to question our own perception and we may stray further from trusting our intuition. Due to the things we have had to endure, it can be hard to connect or feel like we can share our voice, thoughts, and feelings with others. The messages we receive throughout our lives may exaggerate the need to hide our true selves and we become more confused and lost. "

"Knowing that it is usually an experience of pain or frustration that prompts people to seek counseling, my goal is to provide a safe place for you to effectively move through it. Often that pain comes from unmet needs, harmful experiences, or coping systems that no longer serve you. I want to work with you, to offer reflection, understanding, information, and new windows to help you experience relief and a sense of well being. Approaches include insight oriented talk therapy, mindfulness, EMDR, and art therapy and are chosen on what would be most appropriate to your individual goals."

"As a trauma-informed and body-inclusive counselor, I honor the unique strengths, experiences and survival skills that have brought you to this point in your healing journey. I hope to collaborate with you to build resilience, transform old patterns and find new pathways to growth and change. Our bodies are foundational to our moment-to-moment experience, holding wisdom that can help us grow and make meaning. Because trauma is often held in the body, we can use somatic mindfulness and more to learn what our body and mind need to set better boundaries, enhance relational connection, and integrate trauma-related feelings and memories.
