Therapy Style

Do you ever feel like you are stuck in the past or plagued by negative thoughts of the future? Have you ever had times where you felt like you were a prisoner of your own mind? If you are looking to gain tools to heal from the past or present, I would be honored to support you in your journey. I am a heart-and soul-centered therapist who is passionate about helping clients let go of unhealthy patterns connected to trauma, anxiety, depression, relationships, and life transitions.

I use a variety of approaches that are tailored to your individual needs including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).

Navigating the ups and downs of life alone can be challenging. I welcome the opportunity to work alongside you in an inclusive, compassionate, and nonjudgmental space so you feel fully supported in your journey. I hope to help your experience in therapy be something you look forward to so that you can live the peaceful and present life you deserve.
