"Are you working towards a fulfilling life but feel stuck or overwhelmed? Are you hurting inside and unsure of where to turn? Most of our struggles stem from our relationships with others and we often need tools for healing these wounds. Although talk is helpful, the research shows that tapping into the right brain where emotions are housed is vital in transforming long-standing issues or limiting beliefs. Utilizing Experiential approaches including EMDR, Brainspotting, inner parts work, and Somatic therapies we can heal the mind and body. "

"Therapy is an opportunity for personal development in a safe, nonjudgmental, respectful, private, and supportive environment. It is natural to feel overwhelmed at times and it is not a sign of weak character to seek help. Through therapy we can learn to manage our emotions more effectively, improve our relationships and communication, bolster our confidence and self-esteem, and minimize our distress. In my work, I strive to create a comfortable environment in which I can assist clients in identifying thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and recurring patterns of behavior that may be impinging on the capacity to experience and create a fuller, more satisfying life."
