In addition to specialized training with trauma, I often incorporate mindfulness, acceptance/compassion, skills building, and insight building.
It's no surprise life can feel overwhelming at times, making it harder to do even the simplest of things. And yet you're here! We manage to get through it, either by luck, grit, will power, or sheer determination. But sometimes, the pressures from society, culture, expectations...etc can really bog us down. We can find ourselves feeling stuck, thinking, "why is nothing working?" or "no one really gets it." We all deserve peace, safety, and belonging, and sometimes, we might need a helping hand to get us "unstuck." Let's work together to explore what's keeping us stuck, build up our resources, and create the life you'll be proud of.

As a level 2 Certified Clinical Trauma Therapist, I use a combination of cognitive and body based interventions to facilitate healing including CBT, and Somatic Experiencing.
What do you really want from counseling? Honestly, don't you just want to ease your pain, stop the suffering, end your struggles, and arrive somewhere better? I understand that you may not care so much about the therapeutic approach, but maybe you will love the emotional release you can experience when you finish a counseling session. Maybe you will feel less burdened, seen, and not so alone. You might decide to come to therapy not because you love therapy, but because you're motivated to get out of the darkness and love your life again.

I specialize in anxiety, trauma and ADHD.
Life’s intense challenges can be overwhelming to deal with on your own. You may fear that acknowledging certain issues or feelings will overwhelm you. Many of us have learned that in order to be accepted, we must suppress our true feelings. This suppression of our real feelings, experiences, challenges may influence our behavior in unpredictable and negative ways and leave us feeling isolated, hopeless and alone. No matter what you’re feeling or facing, you are not alone and there is hope. Working with a skilled therapist leads to healing and growth.

Waitlist for new clients
I have supported people with childhood concerns such as ADHD, bullying, family, and trauma through concerns into adulthood such as stress management, depression/anxiety, life changes, grief, relationships, and trauma/PTSD.
Life is full of many challenges and we all need a community of support to navigate it. I want to be part of that community for you. During the course of our strenuous daily lives, it's often difficult to find time to devote to invest in yourself. Worse, when new demands arrive unexpectedly, it can feel like that time is the easiest thing to sacrifice. When we work together, in a safe, open, strength-based environment, that investment will be our only focus, free from competition by any other demand. You will guide your experience from beginning to end.

We are all on a journey together. This world that we live in can be incredibly beautiful, daunting and abysmal at the same time. It can be easy in our current culture to get lost in electronics, work, school, family, trauma, etc. We often begin to define ourselves by our work, car, and endless things. ​This is not the essential self, we were not born to be lost in this suffering. I believe we can work together to create the world that you dream of, and we can have real human heart to heart interactions. Through these encounters we discover ourselves, and begin to heal and live from our heart in an authentic and beautiful way.

I work to create a safe, non-judgmental space for individuals and couples to have their stories heard, and their thoughts and feelings respected and cared for. I use a person-centered approach that allows people to work on their concerns at their own pace in a supportive space that honors what has meaning to them (past, present, and future). I work with my clients to build a deeper awareness about themselves and their experiences (including their strengths and ability to be resilient and adaptive) in order to foster self-compassion, healing, and change.
