I help people who have experienced trauma gain feelings of peace and freedom. Feelings such as anxiety, numbness, and physical exhaustion are what I want to help you deal with and transform. Do you feel like a piece of you was hurt or broken, and now you can't connect with your true self? Perhaps these negative reactions you are having seem to continually affect your life. My goal is to help you have a better chance of reaching your whole self. The scars of your past do not need to effect your future. I want to help you repair and heal that piece of you that was hurt from your trauma.

In-person and telehealth available. I work with adolescents, adults and couples. We all experience anxiety, depression, anger, stress and sometimes the trauma that can occur in our families, our relationships, our friendships, our workplaces and our everyday lives. Some of these stressors are triggered when we break-up, begin a new relationship, start a new job, start at a new school. Some individuals need to be sat with and have a space held for them, some are looking for collaborative support and guidance on their life's struggles.
