If you are looking at this page, you are most likely trying to get help. Finding a good match is essential to successful therapy. I connect with clients by listening and exploring without judgement. Clients have told me they appreciate my compassion, finding it easy to talk with me about difficult issues. Psychotherapy is a process of self-discovery where you learn why you do what you do, as well as how to change behaviors. Many hide their authentic self, conforming to the expectations of others. Psychotherapy can assist you in becoming reacquainted with yourself.
We will work together on inter and intrapersonal issues to enable more satisfying relationships, gather insight as to why you developed certain "coping strategies," and learn replacement strategies to those no longer working in your life. In the event that we are targeting specific trauma/s, we may include EMDR for quick relief of symptomology.
Together we will synthesize and actuate your goals. We will achieve new insights using psychological tools including various modalities and techniques based on your needs. As a mother of two, with diverse life experience and training, I am knowledgeable and passionate about what I do. I welcome the opportunity to work with you.
