About

I believe all clients hold the key to their own success and can be guided to that end in a safe, trusting, honest environment. Building relationship and skills for growth, understanding and healing are among my goals in therapy. My personal journey through adoption, trauma, abuse, raising a child with mental health concerns, spiritual enlightenment, natural mental health, divorce, and remarriage have become the gifts I share though therapy. I believe the keys essential to reaching any goal lies within each of us believing in ourselves and knowing that someone also believes in us.
My experience is in working with emotional dysregulation, anxiety, depression, selective mutism, trauma, oppositional behaviors, family change, loss and grief, parenting skills, adoption issues, spiritual awakening & trauma. I enjoy teaching adults and children how to take control of their lives in mind, body, and spirit to navigate a stressful world.
I am trained/certified in a wide variety of areas. Accelerated Resolution, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Sand Tray, Mindfulness, NLP, EMDR, Coaching, Breathwork, Clinical Hypnotherapy, Solution Focused therapy, Trauma Focused, Healing Touch, Family Systems.
