Announcement icon Support and stability are important and can be achieved on a HIPPA compliant platform. More than ever, know I am here to serve and help you.
Unresolved negative experiences can affect you in a multitude of ways. You may feel overwhelmed, distressed, anxious, or depressed. You may isolate, drink, smoke or self-harm to numb the pain. Your teen may act out in unhealthy ways. Have you been wounded from broken relationships, abandonment, neglect, sexual abuse, or molestation? Do you want to heal, have healthy relationships, and be free to live your life? Is it hard for you to see beyond your experiences? Do you feel stuck in this cycle and after multiple attempts and therapists, you still have not achieved healing? Don't give up. Wounds can heal. Transformation can be yours.
Healing can take place in the right environment and with the right tools. I am trained in brain-body modalities like Brainspotting and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), to help resolve those distressing experiences that show up in your daily life. Transformation is possible. I am a firm believer - Heal the Child; Transform the Adult.
Your experiences don't have to dictate your life anymore. I enjoy working with teen girls, women, and first responders. I also believe in the strength of groups and the community. I offer groups and consultations to educate and teach coping skills for healthy living. You don't have to do it alone. Reach out and let's connect to see if we are a good fit.
