I provide individual therapy to teens and adults of all ages struggling with attachment trauma, grief , displacement/migration, eating disorders, codependency, addictions, and PTSD.
I know that finding the right therapist can feel overwhelming, especially when you're already struggling and in need of support. I believe that feeling seen and heard can serve as a powerfully reparative experience, especially in a space of non-judgment and acceptance. I am honored and committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment to help clients connect with themselves in an emotionally vulnerable, safe, and self-compassionate way. I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, utilizing a neuro-biologically focused approach that restores the authentic self with self-regulation, wholeness, and sense of aliveness.

Serious and chronic illness, difficult life transitions, divorce, or the profound grief you experience with the loss of a loved one – it can leave us feeling depressed, anxious, angry, confused, isolated, and lost. A lot of the time, we acclimate and move right along, but other times, it throws us completely off course. When the unthinkable happens to you, how do you get to a place where you feel safe, content, and at peace? Whatever your therapeutic goals may be, you deserve to feel heard, understood, and validated.

I work with individuals who are navigating grief and loss , eating disorders, anxiety, depression, life transitions and identity development. In therapy, I balance addressing symptoms and looking beyond the surface to address the underlying emotions driving behavioral and interpersonal patterns. By learning new adaptive coping strategies and gaining insight into the early development of current emotional wounds or maladaptive behaviors, clients can feel empowered to create positive change.

My areas of specialty include: navigating life transitions, overcoming traumatic experiences, improved stress management, cultivating mindfulness, building self-esteem, processing grief and managing chronic illnesses.
Welcome. My approach to therapy revolves around insight, empowerment, and making meaningful changes in life. I strive to help people release pain from the past, and worries about the future, so that they can find peace and fulfillment in everyday life. My style is personable and warm, and I utilize a variety of therapeutic modalities based on what will be most helpful to each person. When applicable, I enjoy exploring the mind-body connection through both cognitive and somatic therapeutic approaches, which is largely influenced by my interest in mindfulness, attachment, and neurobiology perspectives.

Is Therapy for you? Life is an incredible journey but is not without its challenges. While some of those experiences are beyond our control, many are the outcome of our choices. We can find ourselves in unfulfilling relationships, challenging times or lack luster careers. Our thoughts can take us to negative places where depression, anxiety and feelings of being overwhelmed may take control. Usually people seek out therapy when they are having a hard time managing it alone. It's one of those things that we resist, convinced that we can work it out ourselves. Most of the times we do yet when we feel unhappy, therapy can help.

Grief . Chronic illness. Terminal illness. Those words sit heavy, only outweighed by the emotions that come with one or any combination of them. The layers are many and the thoughts are never-ending. "How am I going to get through this?" "Is there hope?" "What's the meaning in all of this?" There are times you feel unfocused, unmotivated, and utterly alone. Other times, you feel hopeless, confused, overwhelmed, or overburdened.

I have been personally affected by a high risk pregnancy, a traumatic birth and a NICU stay. That is what has led me to this work. For the past eleven years, my work has been with perinatal mental health; specifically working with women with high risk pregnancies due to a congenital anomaly identified in their baby during pregnancy. I am here to help anyone that is struggling with feelings of angst and unrest about those unexpected challenges that are thrown your way. I have worked a great deal with perinatal and infant loss as well. I have a growing passion for helping women, specifically focusing on maternal mental health.

My additional specialties: Illness/Health Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Death Anxiety, Health Psych, Anger Management, & Military Veterans issues.
Many of my clients have anxiety that presents as overthinking, indecision, self-criticism, and deriving worth from performance. The self-doubt and rumination can be emotionally exhausting and contribute to overwhelm, depression, and unhelpful coping patterns. We often identify earlier life experiences that formed a belief of not being good enough, capable, or worthy of love. If this sounds like you, we might be a good fit for therapy. In my practice, I primarily utilize relationally and developmentally informed Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to uncover and approach deeply held core beliefs developed throughout the lifespan.

Hello! I am passionate about serving others and am here to help you through life's challenges. I've been in a school setting for over 15 years and decided to offer therapy services due to an increased need for intensive therapy support for adolescents and their family members. People reach out to me for therapy to find relief, problem solve, process through grief and trauma, work through conflict, and adjust to life transitions. I enjoy helping people strengthen their coping skills and explore their faith. It's rewarding when I see my clients improve their self-esteem and live up to their potential.

Grief Therapists
Grief and Bereavement is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.
