About

Are you struggling to create the adventurous, meaningful life you imagined? Does it feel like your past is holding you back from joy or connection? Depression, anxiety and trauma can cloud your mind, tire your body and create instability in your relationships. Brain fog, chronic irritability and indecision are wildly disruptive when they are part of your daily life. And, you don't have to repeat the painful patterns you're in! You can move past old pain and trauma. Creative interventions to address your mental health and emotional balance can guide you to greater joy, clarity, more meaningful relationships and personal freedom.
My years of experience in treating anxiety, depression and trauma allows me to create individualized sessions for you. In addition, I have advanced training in trauma resolution (EMDR therapy ) and the treatment of codependency and unhealthy relationship patterns. Client's often experience improved self-esteem and better boundaries through this work.
My passion is to provide you a comfortable environment, a safe respect-filled relationship and a process that can guide you towards wellness. While building skills to cope with pain or stress is essential, my goal is to help resolve the source of that pain. Together we can take those first steps forward. Call today and begin your journey forward.
