About

Daily life is challenging and may leave you feeling out of balance. Are you physically, emotionally, and spiritually healthy? Is your relationship with your community healthy? If not, what experiences have broken your connection with these aspects of your life? What is keeping you from living a healthy, joyful life. I will help you reconnect with your inner strengths, core values, and resiliency so you can grow beyond past limitations and live the life you want. Whether you're looking for guidance through a difficult situation or looking to move in a new life direction, I can help you achieve your goals.
I am certified in EMDR and Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy and am trained in other trauma-informed therapies. In connection with trauma work, I also utilize ego states therapy techniques and somatic therapy techniques when working with clients. As a psychodynamic therapist, I also utilize cognitive behavioral, motivational interviewing, and narrative informed techniques in session.
An Important part of the work I do with clients includes mindfulness, core values, and shame resilience. I also believe that a client's physical health may have a significant impact on the client's mental well-being. I have a certificate in Fitness, Nutrition, and Wellness and incorporate this training in client sessions.
