I offer individual, couples, and group therapy for a wide range of life's challenges including anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship issues.
Let's face it: LIFE. IS. HARD. You are out here giving it your all, yet often find yourself feeling exhausted, anxious, lost, and overwhelmed. Meanwhile, everyone else seems like they've got it all figured out. Well, here's the thing: you are not alone in feeling this way, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with you because of it. In fact, discovering this truth is at the heart of therapy.

Sometimes life can feel lonely, stuck and meaningless. We live in a world that encourages us to cut off from our feelings, from our sense of being truly alive. When we do this, we can begin to feel rigid, anxious, depressed and empty. I am passionate about helping adults with anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem and relationship issues. My approach is to help you connect to your body and emotions in a way that helps you know yourself more deeply, feel more confident in your decisions. Using these methods, we can help, pull you out of depression & anxiety spirals.

Trauma can be a difficulty subject to talk about. Often we minimize or compare our experiences with those of our friends who are somehow more valid. We struggle to name our trauma, but trauma includes impactful events like not having our needs met growing up or a significant break-up. Chronic trauma is stored in the body and can manifest as feeling on edge, feeling overstimulated, or people-pleasing. As a former EMT, I understand how these experiences can manifest somatically. I specialize in complex trauma and attachment wounds, and support individuals through life transitions, grief, medical trauma, chronic illness, and OCD.

I'm a trauma-expert helping sensitive hearts, scapegoats, & empaths make sense of emotions and relationships and feel more embodied & empowered. Do you struggle with overwhelming emotions or interpersonal relationships? You may be feeling scared, enraged, or even hopeless. Strong emotions can be frustrating and disorienting leading you to shut down. This makes it difficult to communicate with others, leaving you feeling even more alone. This pattern perpetuates a vicious cycle of shame and isolation. Maybe you've tried everything to feel better but when it doesn't work, you're left with more despair wondering if you'll ever be okay.

While these methods can be highly effective in relieving anxiety and the impact of trauma, our therapeutic relationship is the most important aspect of therapy.
Feeling stressed, anxious, on edge, not allowing yourself to feel happy for fear of the next bad thing that might happen. Highly sensitive, you get hurt easily and the emotions take over leaving you doubting yourself and not able to trust others. It’s getting in the way of your life and your relationships. Trying to avoid it, keep yourself busy, or think your way out of it isn’t working. Your insecurity tells you to put others first, but then you feel used or taken for granted. You so want to be seen, heard, and acknowledged.

With my background in japanese acupressure, I have excellent tools for self-regulation, holistic health insight and and meridian-based trauma work.
I do not shy away from clients who are truly frustrated with life and not sure how to continue on the journey alone. This planet is a tough one to be on right now and a therapeutic relationship can be a saving grace. No matter what the issue, I help clients tap into their own intuition as well as my professional insight to move matters forward. I typically explore body-mind constructs and stay curious about how the concept of energy plays into every day life. I believe trauma is a predecessor to many mental health issues, so I'm always focused on creating a safe place to explore healing the mind and body.

I specialize in relationship and trauma treatment.
Sometimes there are moments in life when we feel stuck. Regardless of how hard we try, we feel hopeless and lonely. We might be stuck in a negative cycle in a relationship, feeling hurt and alone where communication has become impossible. Together we will figure out what is at the root of this painful situation. We will detect and process painful past experiences as you build your inner resources, feel better, stronger, and in control of your life and emotions. Relational dynamics change as we explore , heal, and reconnect creating a foundation based on trust and deep emotional connection.
