When searching for a therapist, it's important to find someone relatable and authentic. My professional experiences as a therapist include grief, life transitions, and trauma recovery. I help individuals, couples, blended families, families of autism, and LGBTQ populations to achieve wellness goals unique to their lives. My rich life experience substantially enhances the empathy, relatability, dignity, and understanding desired in a therapist. I provide convenient telehealth-counseling via a HIPAA compliant video conferencing format, making access to mental health services devoid of commute, parking or time away from work or home.
My theoretical orientation is narrative via an attachment lens, meaning that life experiences shape our unique world perspective. Trauma often skews a realistic perspective and hinders hope. Therefore, I use mindfulness, motivational interviewing, ACT, CBT, EFT for couples and families, genogram work and epigenetic exploration in my modalities of treatment.
Counseling accesses a fundamental need we all have as humans: a desire to be understood, heard and in counterpart during difficult and joyous times. Your strengths are your road map to wellness, and your therapeutic journey is most successful when your talents are realized and supported. As you are unique, so should be your path to vitality and happiness.
