Opening up to another individual can be uncomfortable and, simply, scary. I hope to provide a soft, authentic, nonjudgmental environment that allows me the opportunity to collaborate with you in identifying and applying your strengths to address life challenges. I am humbled by the opportunity to support others with a listening ear and hands to help carry the load throughout your life journey.

Therapy is a relationship that needs to be cherished between the therapist and the client. It is a vulnerable space that needs to be safe, comfortable, and motivating for the client to be able to share their inner, personal stories. I have experience working with adults 18 and older with acute mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, substance use, and other mood disorders. I am also very passionate about working with immigrant and refugee populations who are learning to adapt to the cultural differences, Lifestyles, language, and overall well-being in a new environment as well as individuals struggling with trauma.

I believe that there is no such thing as a bad person. I believe that all humans are fundamentally good and are deserving of love, kindness, and respect. My work as a therapist is grounded in those beliefs. I also believe that as humans, it is our job to screw up, to get stuck, and to experience discomfort, pain, loneliness, sadness, and grief. I believe that really good people can make really bad decisions and get stuck. Those problems in no way disqualify someone from being loved, treated with kindness, and held in respect.

We are here to thrive, not just survive. As a licensed therapist, Shamanic practitioner and former bodyworker, I am here to help the soul searchers, truth seekers, and those on a quest to rediscover their authentic selves towards overall health and healing. I will support you on your journey to shed the layers of fear, shame, trauma and pain. I will help you on your spiritual or self healing journey, providing additional support as you encounter life's challenges. When the walls come down, and the truth of the authentic self begins to emerge, it may be difficult, but we will move through it together. We will identify triggers and blockages, and look into things such as unhealthy attachments, cognitive distortions (negative thoughts) and “less than healthy” belief systems. It doesn’t matter whether they came from trauma in childhood, abuse, unhealthy relationships, grief or loss, I am here to help. By identifying, processing, and releasing that which no longer serves you will allow the true healing to finally begin and set your feet on the path you were meant to walk.

My clientele enjoy adding to their distinct personal arsenal of success oriented skills - they are not broken. Occasionally, any one of us can lose sight of what it is we uniquely have to offer. We can get fiercely myopic and tunnel visioned, especially in the wake of a loss, a disappointment, or a tragedy. This can manifest in arguments at home and missed promotions. We tend to forget about our vast assets. I'd like to help your remember what works best with the way you are constructed, from the inside out, how to retain it, and consistently apply it; ideally, we'll enhance what is already working and take it to the next level.
