Announcement icon Good Day! For many years I have been seeing clients through telehealth communication. Please reach out for easy to access online services.
I am passionate about helping people find healthy pathways to process hardships, trauma, and abuse. On this journey, I have learned the importance of the mind-body connection and am inspired to guide clients through a holistic approach to treatment. I assist clients in coping with the physical symptoms of trauma such as panic attacks, insomnia, anxiety, disordered eating, substance abuse, irritability or outbursts of anger, flashbacks, self-injurious behaviors, and other natural reactions survivors experience. My goal is to create a support system and assist clients along their personal path towards physical and mental well-being.
My approach is warm yet direct and always thoughtful. Although you might come to therapy seeking help with your vulnerabilities, I believe you possess various strengths needed to foster important life changes. Together we can explore these challenges in a confidential and emotionally safe space.
