"Sometimes life entangles us along the way and it's held in our bodies in the form of mental distress. I believe that every person has their own innate light to self-healing but may need some support along the way. I find it a great privilege to walk with clients on the personal journey of healing. I work especially well with children doing play therapy and art, teens facing anxiety, trauma, and/or adversity, adults with trauma and/or anxiety ,and those who just don't quite fit cultural norms.

"Being human means that we all struggle and need support at various times in our lives. You may feel overwhelmed, angry, hopeless or confused. You are likely seeking to feel more balanced and in control. Sharing our experiences with others allows us to understand ourselves more deeply, unburden negative beliefs about ourselves, and access our internal resources in an effort to shift patterns and create meaningful change. I believe strongly in the strength that comes from being vulnerable, and I am committed to offering kindness, compassion, curiosity, and at times, a sense of humor about life, as we enter this partnership together."

"Most people who identify a need for therapy seem to be dealing with natural defense systems that help manage shock and developmental trauma. A defense response may be anxiety, depression, dissociation, psychosis, avoidant attachment, etc. A part of therapy is simply developing understanding and acceptance of defense mechanisms, then there is more capacity to reclaim or recover self regulation, co-regulation and self concept. I am interested in working with all people who have experienced trauma and as well as getting to the causal factors, developing grounding in the present and hope about the future."
