Announcement icon During this time, our office is closed to in-person sessions, however I am offering Telehealth sessions.
Healing from trauma and grief is not just about surviving the experience, it is also about learning to LIVE again. I enjoy being part of this process and empowering people to grow, change, heal, and thrive! I am passionate about my work and I love helping people reconnect with themselves. I believe it is important to get to the root of the problem, not just manage symptoms. One of the gifts I bring to you is listening deeply and helping you feel understood as we collaborate on implementing practical solutions.
My specialty is helping people heal from trauma and grief. I have extensive experience working with sexual assault and sexual abuse survivors. I enjoy using different modalities such as EMDR, Art Therapy, Animal Assisted Therapy, Sandtray Therapy, and Mindfulness in addition to talk therapy.
I am trained in EMDR and Animal Assisted Therapy. I am a member of the LGBTQIAP community, so clients from that community can feel safe discussing issues pertaining to sexuality. I also love helping clients grow in their Pagan spirituality. To learn more: www.innerpathllc.com
