The special focuses of my practice are LGBTQIA + issues and non-traditional relationships.
As a therapist, I strive to create an environment that affirms who you are as a person. Therapy involves some of our most vulnerable experiences and my practice centers on being supportive so you feel secure while exploring ways to improve your daily life. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families. So much of a positive human experience involves being heard and validated by others, especially in our own homes. I will work with you and your loved ones to learn healthy communication skills to improve your relationships, increase acceptance and understanding in the home, and learn to manage conflict in a healthy manner.

I have worked with veterans, domestic violence survivors, survivors of human trafficking, children, adolescents, autistic youth, and LGBTQIA + youth.
Sometimes dark places need flashlights. Early in my education to become a therapist, I learned being allowed to walk with someone during a dark time in their life is an honor. As a therapist it is my intention to deserve that honor and to be a flashlight of sorts to help remove those emotional filters which often darken our experiences.

Rachel Held Evans wrote that "we live inside an unfinished story." Are you lacking clarity about what you want to do with your life? Did you have a difficult or confusing childhood, and now struggle with connection to others? Did you experience a traumatic event or relationship that has been difficult to overcome on your own? Do you struggle in relationships and wonder why you have the same problems time and time again? Do you have a chronic illness and experience the emotional pain, disappointment, and despair it can bring? If any of this resonates with you, I can help you write the rest of your story.

I see adults of all ages for a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, LGBTQIA + issues, stress management and life transitions.
My therapeutic approach is rooted in Person-Centered therapy in which the relationship between client and clinician is a priority and is based in mutual trust and respect, empathy and congruence. I use integrative techniques in every session to meet the unique needs of each client, such as CBT, trauma-informed therapy and mindfulness-based therapy. I believe that individuals are experts on themselves and because of this I take a collaborative approach in working with clients, utilizing what is known as Feedback Informed Treatment (FIT) to get client input in evaluating progress and clients’ needs.

I work with clients that present with a variety of issues - depression, anxiety, addiction - often stemming from underlying issues with codependency, low self-worth, family of origin issues, and unresolved trauma. I see individuals, couples, and adolescents. If appropriate, I like working with clients in a group setting where peer support and identification with others help clients feel less misunderstood, alone or different.

Are you ready to let go who you think you're supposed to be? Are you ready to embrace who you really are? Sometimes life gets hard. We don't have to do it alone; we were never intended to. Perhaps it is struggles with Anxiety, Depression, grief/loss, stress management, unresolved trauma, life adjustment issues, or low self-esteem. Or maybe you aren't quite sure what is wrong but you know something isn't quite right. That's okay too. I have a passion for working with people who have a vision of a better life in regards to self-care and self-worth with a desire for a life of abundance.

The treatment of complex histories of trauma, eating disorders, and attachment disruptions must include interventions that rewire the brain from the bottom up, somatic movement to reintegrate the body with the brain, and a felt sense of safety, in the context of relationship. This provides lasting change for improved regulation, mood, energy, the ability to be present and attune to others. Too many therapies focus on decision making, problem solving, or changing your thoughts. This is not how we are wired to work. It leads to disappointment. My evidenced based interventions promise to be different.

You've never really felt like you are enough. Sure, you've been successful in school, at work, and well, at life... for the most part (at least it looks that way to other people). But deep down, it has always felt like there is something missing... something wrong - and you wonder if maybe there's actually just something wrong with you. You push your feelings down. You stretch yourself too thin, work too hard, and just can't say "no." You worry about what other people think of you and hope that you're enough for them. You wish it could stop - that you could feel good enough to have happiness and love and actually feel worthy of it.

I believe the therapeutic relationship is an organic experience that cannot be created elsewhere. My experience has shown me that each of us walks our own path and that no two are the same. Having support while walking your path can be just the thing to make the difference. I strive to provide safety so that you can talk about your life, your family, your pain, and sit in the tension to ultimately begin living more authentically. I work from a holistic approach; given that, we will develop the best course of treatment for your needs, together.

Are you ready to take that step but don't know where that step will lead you? Are you tired of trying to solve your own problems that are never getting solved? Are you tired of the cliche' of what people tell you what you SHOULD be doing instead of helping you with what you COULD be doing? If yes, then let's start the process of making you a better you.
