"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.

"Sometimes the daily pressures and struggles of life can seem overwhelming, and it may be hard to imagine how things can change. I encourage you to consider investing some time in yourself... to heal, to change, to grow. We can work together to change unhealthy patterns in your life. I can help you develop more effective communication and conflict resolution skills to improve relationships. Together, we can explore the barriers that are keeping you from living the life you want. Most importantly, I will support you on your journey toward wellness - whatever that may look like for you."

"Emotional discomfort is possibly the hardest part of being human. Why do we need hurt, confusion, anger, and anxiety? Shouldn't it be easy to be happy, peaceful, and present? This awe-inspiring life could be full of wonder and joy! Yet it isn't always. And that’s not exactly something you can talk about easily with your loved ones. They might even disregard your attempts to get support. You might be wanting to focus on yourself right now, and it’s hard to change while others expect you to be the same. I will be pleased to hold your growth and change process. We can work with it in the way that is most comfortable for you. "

"Indeed it is a troubled time. Our difficulties as human beings have grown in magnitude and complexity. The growing demands of everyday living and the lack of community-feeling has left many feeling lost, confused, homeless, lonely and afraid. ​Being human is messy business. We are expected to bear the load of so many complex emotions that result from the deaths of those we love, stress, major life changes, marital and interpersonal difficulties, family histories, parenting, keeping up with the pace of life and making a living on top of it all."

"Welcome to your personal journey of healing! Life can be wonderful and overwhelming at the same time. While we are transiting internally and externally, the process may seem overwhelming at times. If you are experiencing feeling "stuck", having racing thoughts, feelings of emptiness, frustration, sadness, worry and anxiety is your body's way of communicating that something is in need of being processed. Releasing and resolving things that no longer serve you. This could be faulty thinking patterns, suppressed memories, unresolved pain or trauma that continues to show up in at various time in your life."

"Wholeness leads to healing. I guide my clients to accept all parts of themselves and find balance in their lives. I entered the field of counseling with a passion for treating trauma (big T and little t trauma). Along the way I gathered some exceptional tools for doing so, including EMDR and a somatic approach to psychotherapy. Not so far removed from trauma, I have also developed a specialty in treating addiction of all kinds. I have seen the power of emotional healing to transform people's lives in ways they always wanted but didn't know how. I am here to help whenever the client is ready to do that brave and powerful work."

Many people find it difficult to feel confident and self assured, have peaceful, fulfilling relationships, navigate the demands of finances, family, work and home, and also focus on nourishing self care.
