My favorite clients to work with are children and teens ages 5 to 18 as well as young adults ages 19 - 35. I have an innate ability to connect and communicate with children and teens while at the same time being able to form a relationship with their parents to assist in the work they are doing in therapy. I work to create a safe, non-judgmental space that allows clients to be themselves. As a therapist, I show up authentically and establish a real connection using empathy, creativity, and humor.

Do you want relief from overwhelming thoughts and/or emotions? Do you have an inner critic that just won't leave you alone? Do you feel flooded by intrusive thoughts, emotions, memories and/or physical sensations, that may even seem to come out of nowhere? For many these experiences can result in feeling frustrated, fearful, hopeless and alone or coping in self-damaging ways. These are normal responses to trauma and overwhelming/painful experiences. Emotions and trauma can get stuck in the body, which is why talk therapy alone often isn’t enough.

We all feel lost from time to time, but there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve been through my own therapy as a young adult when I was stuck in a bout of anxiety and panic attacks due to childhood trauma. Throughout my years of working with traumatized individuals, I learned first-hand about how childhood trauma can have a strong impact on adulthood. I can help you address unresolved trauma, in order for you to find passion, connection, and purpose in your life.

Trauma, anxiety, and addiction can make you feel stuck. The most important step towards healing is to address the unresolved emotion inside you. Healing requires feelings. Acceptance slowly dissolves pain. When we function from the fear and scarring of our trauma, the cycles continue until we learn how to transmute that energy into love. I apply a Holistic approach that integrates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual forms of well-being, addressing the “whole” self. Through a holistic framework tailored to your unique needs, the goal is to support you develop a deeper understanding of the self on all these levels.
