We all have our struggles and experience the pain and hardships that are a part of life. You may be experiencing anxiety, depression, grief or a reaction to a traumatic event or perhaps you are simply hoping to feel happier, more connected and more present in your life. Psychotherapy can help you create a meaningful life by enhancing coping skills, clarifying values and purpose, increasing your ability to handle difficult thoughts and emotions and cultivating wisdom, insight and self-compassion.
I offer therapy that is active, strengths-based and collaborative and use an integrative approach with a focus of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and EMDR Therapy. I work with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, grief and trauma as well as issues related to aging, life transitions, relationships, spirituality, and sexual identity.
I have worked in a variety of settings including Crisis Intervention and Hospice. I am also a Reiki Master Practitioner and support the use of other healing modalities as a compliment to psychotherapy. I believe we all have the ability to live a rich and meaningful life and consider it an honor to support you on this path.
