Offering insight in a safe, accepting environment can be a game changer. In this loud and confusing time we live in it's important to explore your internal resources, acknowledge your own wisdom and develop the skills you lack. That's what we do in my practice. The goal of treatment is to empower you in every way to take control of your life and soar above the obstacles becoming who you were meant to be.

You CAN heal by recognizing how important your thoughts, AND feelings are in navigating this world. We often use our minds to solve everything and sometimes we "solve" ourselves into trouble. We become fragmented when we problem solve without taking the time to tend to our our whole self. Use all of you to integrate what has been fragmented by trauma be it divorce, depression, anxiety, family issues, grief, etc. Access your thoughts, feelings, and spirituality to help you become more authentically yourself, allowing you to use your strengths and create more peace in your life.

The therapeutic process can be difficult and I strive to provide a safe space for comfort, insight, and positive changes to occur. Each session is structured around your needs--your personal experiences and how you choose to express them are what make these sessions unique from others. You should not feel as if you have to struggle alone or come up with the solutions by yourself. I will help guide you through this journey to achieve the emotional well-being you deserve.
