If you're overwhelmed, anxious, or feel you've lost your way, therapy can help. You can take your power back. I help people who have experienced trauma and/or stress regain control of their lives. Extreme stress (trauma) can make it hard to cope and move past the experience. Circumstances like personal crisis, injury/pain (physical and emotional), and helplessness make it feel difficult to move forward. You've survived the traumatic event; you can heal and improve your life! I can walk with you so you're not alone.

Do you find yourself struggling with day to day life or perhaps a dependance on a substance that you know no longer serves you? If so, I am here to help support you through whatever life goals you feel would add to your feeling of fulfillment in life through deeper self-exploration and self-compassion. I have experience working with adults of all ages struggling with substance use, trauma, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, and disordered eating. My belief is that you already know what you need in order to heal, but that it may just not be aware to you quite yet.

For last two years I have been working with families and teens doing individual, group, and family therapy. Whenever I meet a client and hear their story, I consider it an honor to be invited “in”. Counseling, to me, is a unique relationship whereby stories are shared and crafted, the heart finds healing, and freedom is discovered.

People often enter therapy during times of emotional pain, uncertainty or at a time when they are seeking more meaning in their lives. Each person has within them a powerful impulse toward growth and healing. I trust that impulse and trust the therapeutic relationship to reveal your strengths, wisdom, and the next steps to your growth and healing. There is something of value in even the most difficult circumstances. When these circumstances are approached with an openness to learning, major transformations can take place. I find that the willingness to look inside yourself is a key factor in your healing.

Raise your hand if you’re feeling stressed? Overwhelmed? Burnt out? Not motivated? Raise your hand if you’re experiencing any kind of body pain. I’m imagining a lot of hands right now. Did you know that emotional pain = body pain? If you are experiencing any kind of emotion (good or bad) you will also feel this emotion somewhere in your body. My goal as a therapist is to help clients not only work on cognitions, as most therapists do, but I also want you to learn about how to regulate your nervous system. If you are unable to self-regulate, you will be unable to de-stress - no amount of talk therapy will help if you’re tense.

Our culture is one that has taught us that certain emotions should be avoided at all costs. My belief is that no feelings are "bad", and we were made to feel all of them. As a therapist, I work to destigmatize the assumptions that accompany mental health diagnoses, with a focus on helping women in the perinatal period. Pregnancy, loss of pregnancy, and new motherhood are all transitional experiences that invite the whole gamut of emotions to be felt. We all have light and dark inside of us, but we are not our thoughts or feelings. Pain is an innate part of being human, but it is my belief that we do not have to struggle alone.

Being a person is hard. There is no owner's manual, no blueprint. Living a life that best suits you as an individual is a work in progress. Along the way, there are undoubtedly stumbles and falls. It's human. Sometimes, though, those experiences leave us more scarred and confused than we know what to do with. I work specifically with the life events, such as traumas and chronic illnesses, which can derail us the most. Due to my background, I am uniquely qualified to work with individuals experiencing temporary or long-term isolation due to illness or trauma, and can offer a variety of methods to help manage current circumstances.
