Do you feel lost, stuck, overwhelmed, or uncertain? Life hits. I provide emotionally focused, attachment-based support for all types of people, but my specialty is working with individuals with complex trauma history. I also offer a safe space for individuals to process anxiety, depression, interpersonal conflict, life transitions among many other behavioral health concerns. Our time together will be focused on understanding yourself more fully, resolving conflicts, processing your pain, and identifying together your less than helpful coping mechanisms to help you feel more grounded, feel more connected and find peace and freedom.

My approach to treatment is holistic meaning I address the emotional, physical, cognitive, and spiritual domains. My work integrates various approaches and techniques depending on what works best with the client and situation. Some of the approaches include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Brief Interventions with problem solving strategies. In assisting clients with trauma, I use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). Focusing on strengths, I assist clients in finding solutions that work within their values and life perspective.

Hypnosis is not what you think it is. People get the idea from pop culture that hypnosis is something I will put on you or do to you. This isn't true. You’ve already been in a hypnotic state thousands of times throughout your life. Hypnotherapy is simply using this perfectly natural state to create positive change. This typically requires 3 to 5 sessions. As a certified hypnotherapist, I use hypnosis to help clients overcome limiting and negative behaviors, feelings, & chronic pain. The issues you struggle with originate below the conscious level. If they didn’t, you would easily be able to overcome them using your conscious mind.

Accepting new clients. Hola! I believe everyone can benefit from talking openly and honestly about their thoughts and feelings. Opening up can be hard and feel uncomfortable, but great things can come from that partnership! Together we can explore your feelings of sadness, anxiety, stress, anger, whatever those feelings may be that come from everyday life. I love to help people learn, grow, and feel better. Often, we do not realize that we automatically think of the negative and ignore the positive. That inner voice has cruel things to say and together, we can teach your mind to combat that voice and wear down its armor.

There are universal experiences that can cause us to question everything we have learned about who we are within ourselves and in connection to others. It’s in these times it can be difficult to meet life on life’s terms; when looking on the bright side, persistence and grit no longer get us through the day. This has been especially true this past couple of years. The most profound change being our ability to be connected to each other and having shared experiences to look forward to. Connection is a foundational requirement for wellbeing and the events in these last few years have impacted every part of our lives.
