You’re a compassionate person. You’re there for your friends and family. But there’s a disconnect between how you are with others and how you treat yourself. You’re suffering. But instead of meeting your suffering with compassion, you suffer further under a harsh inner critic that you can’t seem to get rid of.

Has your child's school told you they need to be tested? Have you been rejected for a job and need to be re-tested to demonstrate you actually do qualify? Has your therapy hit a dead end and your therapist needs diagnostic clarity to take you to the next level? My practice was designed to address each of these concerns and more. Testing and evaluation opens up doors to school services, better job opportunities, and in some cases, can help the courts better understand your side of situations. Together, we can use your testing results to help you navigate these systems even more effectively.

Sometimes we don’t trust enough to share and sometimes we do not know how to communicate what we are feeling, when we are feeling and why we are feeling. Embrace gives us the opportunity to be open to the therapeutic process, embrace it like a warm hug of comfort. To Embrace the process we must first start with the Problem.

I believe therapy is a way to enrich life and develop a secure connection in a space free of judgement and met with compassion. I strive to provide lasting change from the inside out. I believe in treating the whole person, mind, body, & spirit. I believe it is important to pay attention to emotion, non-verbal communication, somatic expressions and non-conscious processes. Memories play a part in how our brains process and store meaning to life. Misinterpreted meaning becomes internalized and presents unwanted feelings/thoughts/behaviors. As we work together, we process memories leaving those undesired mind/body connections behind.
