My personal philosophy is based on the awareness that each person has the ability to change any circumstance or current situations. Helping clients to bring out their potential for understanding themselves, self-healing, and personal growth so that they may know their true identity and it be the driving force of each session. Each person needs something different from therapy, such support in rock times, new ideas about unsatisfactory relationships, exploration and clarification of difficult life situations or encouragement to reach for joy and purpose in life.

Trauma robs us of our ability to be present in the moment and create lasting safety and social engagement. Bringing clients back into the present and establishing a sense of trust in self and in our bodily sensations, can bring us out of a state of chronic shut down or hypervigilance and assist in engagement with life in the now and co-regulation with self and others.

I believe in the importance of a person’s story and meeting each person where they are in the present moment, while honoring experiences from the past. There are often events or themes within a person’s childhood that can lead them to experience difficulties later in their lives if left unresolved. These difficulties often appear in the form of unhealthy traits or toxic cycles within romantic relationships or friendships. Other times, there are negative thoughts such as “I should have known better” or “I always do something wrong” that constantly circle in a person’s mind.

“Normal is just a setting on the dryer” is one of my favorite quotes. Each person is unique and therefore, therapy should not feel like a “one size fits all” solution. My goal is to treat each person in a way that embraces who they are and what they need. My belief is that when a person is truly heard and valued; that they are then able to attain their goals. I have worked with children, adolescents and adults with varying backgrounds and experiences since 2009.
