I would describe my approach as insight-oriented and client-centered. I want to help you learn more about who you are and how your past has affected you, so that you can identify the patterns that are helpful in the present and those that are no longer working. I have years of experience with domestic violence, sexual assault, and complex trauma, as well as experience with anxiety, depression, and life transition work. I also have specialized training in art therapy that some clients really find helpful, especially those that don't love the typical talk therapy approach.
**ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** http://firesidecounselors.com/ Hello! I enjoy helping individuals, couples, and families with tackling life’s challenges and struggles. I have experience working with clients of all ages, from five years of age to our experienced senior population.
Independent Mental Health Practitioner, MA, LIMHP, LADC, LPC
Sanctuary Psychotherapy and Wellness, LLC was formed out of my passion to provide just what the definition of the word Sanctuary implies: a place of refuge and/or safety. I have worked in the addictions and behavioral health field since 2005. I am a dually licensed therapist; I am an Independently Licensed Mental Health Therapist and a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I am an EMDR therapist and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. I believe in a holistic approach to therapy including mind, body, and spirit. I encourage clients to think of their mental health as just as important as physical health. It is all connected!
Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and depressed? You may be tired from trying to give everyone your best and still feel like you aren't enough. I believe that healing occurs when the mind, body, and spirit are acknowledged, nurtured, and allowed the freedom to fully transform. If we aren't living our life intentionally we unknowingly block the best versions of ourselves from emerging. Do you become fearful of success, self-sabotage growth, and yet continue to seek deeper meaning and purpose in your life? If this message resonates with you it's time to do something different! Ask yourself - What's the best that can happen?
