Often there is hesitation and fear when we take those first steps toward seeking help. Many people envision a therapist as a disconnected observer; however, my clinical approach is very relational and collaborative, meaning you and I both work together toward your healing. Once we've established a foundation of trust, my style tends toward creative and playful, as I feel the role of laughter is often undervalued in the therapeutic process. Our struggles are not silly, but we human beings often are. People typically enter treatment expecting tears, and they often come, but joy is equally powerful and cathartic.

We all want to experience happiness and satisfaction in our lives. I believe that most people have a theory about themselves and their problems, but have struggled to make or sustain progress on their own. That is where having a therapist can be tremendously helpful and where I can provide support and expertise to help you reach your goals. I have been successful in helping people develop healthy coping strategies, and I coach people to try out new behaviors in their daily lives. I have a calm, yet attentive therapeutic style and I strive to empower my clients to experience greater confidence and agency.

I work with people who have experienced overwhelming stress or trauma in their lives, whether it's the stress of living in these uncertain times, the trauma of divorce, an automobile accident, or larger events like military trauma, childhood or adult sexual assault, or emotional abuse. Most emotional and behavioral difficulties stem from traumatic events (recent or past). The symptoms of trauma can include nightmares, triggered memories, edginess, avoidance, explosive anger and slow-burning irritability, anxiety, depression and more. EMDR therapy is an evidenced-based therapy and a gold-standard treatment for trauma.

I believe therapy is the process of getting to know and like yourself better. By looking inward, we discover how we support or undermine ourselves with thoughts, feelings, habitual body patterns and behaviors born out of pain and trauma. We start to distinguish our authentic self from who we think we need to be. When we have more information about ourself and more freedom to be authentic, we can then begin to make changes to better support ourself and create a life that is fulfilling.

In my time practicing, I have worked with a variety of people working to achieve many different goals, and together we have worked to identify such and build a framework to best achieve self-identified happiness. I have worked with individuals to assist on a path to finding a new and most positive direction in life. I like to know that happiness comes in many ways.
