Healing and change are possible for all of us. I am reminded daily of people's innate ability to mend and grow if they are provided with the right tools in a supportive and compassionate environment. Past traumatic events can leave scars and behavior patterns that can get in the way of people leading the life that they choose. I create a safe space where we can work together to allow scars to heal and transformative change to take place. My clients experience healing from sexual trauma, adverse life events, relationship issues, generalized anxiety, and dissociative symptoms and they find freedom from feeling "stuck".

Or that somewhere along the way, you stumbled or lost your way, and are fighting to find it again? Let me assure you that you deserve and are capable of joy and growth.

Self-Harming (Cutting) Therapists
Self-harm (SH) or deliberate self-harm (DSH) is the deliberate infliction of damage to your own body.

While self injury (SI) can look like suicide, it's not; most people who mutilate themselves do it as a way to regulate mood.
