"Entering into counseling takes both courage and vulnerability. I treat adults and children with trauma/anxiety and or substance use disorders. The approach that I use is one of trust and mutual respect, believing that every person has within them everything they need to grow and learn in life. Identifying and drawing forth those skills and strengths as well as an action plan for change is crucial for problem resolution. My approach in counseling is holistic as is my approach to self-healing, working with body, mind, and Spirit. They are truly connected. Working with any one area will impact the others."

"After the first session, you will have answers and clarity. Children, adolescents, and families thrive when they are heard, affirmed, and supported.

I work with young people and their families to ease the sting of adversity and to help rebuild their lives as they envision them to be. My areas of focus include anxiety in childhood, sexual trauma, childhood behavior problems, parent-coaching, and supporting mothers."

"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."

"The question I’m always trying to ask as a counselor is not, “How can I help my clients cope better?” but rather, “How can I help them not have to cope quite so much in the first place?” Coping gets exhausting after a while, doesn’t it? Maybe you’ve been in counseling before, (maybe for a really long time) and maybe you’ve already learned some good ways of coping. I’m more interested in helping you truly, permanently heal on a deeper level so you don't have to take so many of those deep breaths. I've also learned that we usually can’t there just by talking about it. Talk therapy is often really helpful, but usually not enough. "

"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.
