About

My clients describe my approach as gentle and direct with a dab of humor. I do my best work treating individuals who have experienced interpersonal trauma, people who are navigating their role in complicated families, and those who have been emotionally abused. I tend to find success with people who struggle with depression or low self-esteem, people who work in high-stress or helping professions, and people who do not know where to start. I have experience working with people with Bipolar Disorder, PMDD, learning disabilities, ADHD, anxiety, insomnia, auto-immune conditions, depression, anxiety, panic disorders, autism, & PTSD.
I utilize modalities such as CBT, ACT, somatic experiencing, psychodynamic & gestalt therapy, and mindfulness practices. I will help you explore your emotions, thoughts, and actions, particularly the helpful and not-so-helpful ones. I will be looking for patterns and themes in your life and focus in on your strengths while helping you connect to your body.
Most of my clients are unsure of where to start and are needing some guidance figuring out how to make the first step in positive change. Contact me today for a free 15 minute phone or video consultation to determine if we are a good fit.
