During this time of mercurial change, many people are experiencing anxiety, depression, and stress due to social isolation and the unpredictability of the future. It can also be a highly stressful time for parents and caregivers. Emotional support may be beneficial for you or your teen. I provide individual therapy, family therapy, and parent consultation with a collaborative spirit. I work with children (ages 9-12), teens, individual adults, and families, including non-traditional family structures (single parent, multiple caregiver, polyamorous, & LGBT families).

Seeking a coach or therapist begins with a first step. As a certified Brainspotting Therapist and Stress Management Coach, my interests are to assist people as they work through their life's hard areas to reach a place that allows personal serenity and balance. I believe when people seek coaching or therapy services, they want a listener who hears with the heart, provides some feedback and support through difficulties. The answers are within; it's my job to encourage you to explore those places that cause you to turn away from your joy. My practice is inclusive with respect to ethnic identity, physical ability, or gender identity

Stress and trauma can take many forms. Sometimes we survive an event such as a car accident, wildfire, assault, or military-related event. Or we may notice chronic struggles with trusting others and ourselves, and feeling stressed and unsatisfied in our relationships. The experience of trauma can significantly impact how we change or grow in each present moment, how we connect and separate from others, and how we experiment, take risks, and resource our creativity. Let's co-create a therapy relationship that works to support the development of loving relationships with self and others.

I have seen that much of the pain in my clients stems from the emotional or physical stress that is too much for the nervous system. Every person’s experience of events can be different; therefore, the same event/emotion/stress has unique impacts on the person. I approach my work with clients in a very individual way, listening to who they are by clearly understanding both their intellectual and their emotional aspects, and have a strong steady belief in the client's own inner wisdom.

It is important to consider physical, mental and emotional health to increase our quality of life. We don’t have control over some circumstances in life, but we can work to optimally navigate what comes our way. Cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, mindfulness for stress reduction, managing occupational strain and psychoeducation are some of the techniques I find helpful.
