We bridge Eastern and Western modalities together like EMDR and Parts Work with Yoga, Reiki, Crystal Healing, and more! We specialize in emotional neglect, sexual assault, anxiety, complex trauma, and people-pleasing.
Ever feel like you're constantly juggling everyone else's needs, saying "yes" even when you're exhausted? This relentless "good girl" act leaves you drained and resentful like you're living in someone else's story. On top of that, your mind replays past situations on a loop. You constantly worry: Will I ever feel "good enough?" Why am I so drawn to relationships that leave me drained? How do I clear these blocks holding me back? Past experiences might have made you feel like you had to be perfect or prove yourself worthy of love. This disconnect between the life you've built and the one you crave is a powerful signal.

I offer an insight based and trauma informed approach to healing and personal growth.
I find that the empathy and safety experienced in therapy can be transformative in the way that we view our past experiences and our past selves. I most enjoy working with emerging adults and those between the ages of 25-50. Most of my experience involves working with survivors of complex trauma. My professional interests also include working with those experiencing family of origin difficulties, anxiety, depression, existential dilemmas, religious trauma/Christian deconstruction, and post-traumatic stress symptoms. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming and am affirming of non-monogamous relationships.

Many trauma survivors simply want to avoid the topic of their trauma and get on with their lives.
Are you angry? Angry with loved ones, angry with life, even angry with God? Do you feel disillusioned about life and distrustful of others? Did you know that these are classic hallmarks of post-traumatic stress disorder? After surviving a traumatic event, many people experience all of these things and more, which can disrupt every aspect of life. I hope it will encourage you to know that all of these reactions to trauma are completely normal and treatable.

Are there times when you know you should stand up for yourself, but worry more often how it will affect other people? Well, you are not alone. Adjustments can be hard, and they can draw attention to underlying anxiety, depression and even trauma.

Areas of particular focus include trauma, anxiety, and parent-child relationships.
Life gets messy sometimes. Whether it be due to trauma, a conflictual relationship, or even our own feelings that seem to come out of nowhere, there are times when we find ourselves "stuck" and wondering why we can't seem to manage at our full potential. The good news is that real and lasting change is possible. In my over fifteen years of experience, I have seen individuals and families heal, grow, and thrive at a level that surprised even themselves. If the hard stuff in life is seeming heavy, I would love to come alongside you to help you create a path to reaching your goals.

One of my greatest passions involves helping people through various transitions of life. I offer therapy in the area of Grief, Loss, Substance Use Disorders, Trauma, Behavioral Addictions, and Spiritual Direction. I believe our mental health is intricately connected to our emotional and spiritual well-being. There are times we find ourselves choosing unhealthy coping tools to redirect self-defeating, self-loathing, and self-sabotaging thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Through a multi-disciplined approach I'll help you identify those negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and reconnect to the emotions you've grown numb to.

I work primarily with adults across a range of concerns, and even though I consider my practice to be general, I do have specialized training and experience in trauma and other losses- tangible or not.
I'm so glad that you are considering reaching out for help! I believe that the therapeutic relationship has the power to be one of the most transformative in our lives. I find that disconnection from ourselves and others, as well as deviating from what brings us meaning, leads to pain. It is important to me that, together, we utilize your strengths in uncovering a path to a deeper sense of "connectedness" and more authentic living. I offer support, and I do a lot of listening.
