Your sense of inner peace and healing are the focus of my practice. I am best at helping people discover and embody the best versions of themselves in the midst of challenging circumstances. I do depth work with individuals that have experienced trauma, are struggling with a major life transition or are trying to get over a major heartbreak.
I use a combination of modalities and tools in my practice including body based therapies, (Somatic Experiencing) and talk therapies, (Rogerian, Internal Family Systems, Family Systems, Motivational Interviewing and Strategic therapies). I also have extensive training in family therapy and group therapy.
It is a privilege to witness growth in those that might have doubted whether something “better” was really possible. Life gets better with help getting through the tough times. Check out my website for more information about my style and specialities. LGBTQI friendly.
