My passion is supporting parents, families facing unexpected challenges, and those who seek healing from past trauma.
I'm here to support the first-time parent with unexpected emotions, as they re-form their identity; for the child that suddenly has two families instead of one; for the parents taking their baby home from the NICU, facing fear and grieving what might have been; for the person who has decided they're ready to heal old wounds, and embrace all that life has for them. You can learn to navigate depression and anxiety, and become more present for your family. You can strengthen your relationships with your children and partner, even when life throws you a curveball. No matter your past or current struggles, you deserve an abundant life.

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.

Like people, trauma can be individualized. I'd love to listen to any concerns like anxiety or depression that are causing you to feel stuck. Most people struggling with their mental health feel disconnected and isolated. Let's build community with one another. I understand how trauma can play a role in how we function day to day, and I believe there are many different methods to combat this, which is why I incorporate EMDR therapy to help relieve that trauma. Let's explore what a self-reliant you looks like.

I have expert training in evidence-based treatment for PTSD, OCD, depression, anxiety disorders, and couples therapy.
Therapy can transform both our inner and outer worlds by making sense of our stories, releasing what no longer works, and living more fully in the present. I do this work best with people who tend to identify as highly responsible, self-critical, and chronically nervous, tense, or guilty. You might identify as a perfectionist or people-pleaser, or say you "grew up too fast." Common goals include getting in touch with alienated parts of the self, freedom from self-criticism, healing from emotional abuse or neglect, navigating difficult relationships with family, and relief from symptoms of PTSD, OCD, anxiety disorders, or depression.
