Announcement icon Due to Covid-19, I am currently holding sessions using Doxy.me, a secure HIPPA compliant telehealth platform
My approach to treatment begins at a basic level. I create a warm, safe environment where you can explore your personal goals and concerns. Together we will discover what keeps you from achieving healthy relationships, personal growth, and well-being. Treatment is tailored to meet the individual needs of each client.
I have a Certification in Advanced Trauma Treatment from the Ferentz Institute. I have nearly 20 years experience working with individuals who have experienced or witnessed abuse or other trauma. In addition, I enjoy working with clients who are encountering life transitions, low self-worth, depression, anxiety, & grief.
I teach body centered awareness & techniques to help clients manage symptoms & stressors. For those who have difficulty verbally expressing thoughts and feelings, I incorporate other methods including drawing, collage, journaling, & sand tray. Can you use help recognizing your strengths & increasing your sense of well being? I'd love to work with you.
