Therapy Style

I take a collaborative approach to working with my clients. You are not alone. Many benefit from the empathetic and nonjudgmental support of a trained professional. I provide individual, couples, and family therapy for those seeking to increase self-awareness, insight into one’s patterns both with ourselves and with others. I am devoted to helping you connect to your truth and deeper knowledge of yourself; build stronger relational bonds and improve communication challenges; and overcome crisis, awakening the warrior within you.

While I enjoy working on a wide range of issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, I am particularly passionate about helping individuals process and heal from trauma, performance-related issues, invalidation, and abuse. I specialize in Brainspotting, Trauma- Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Cognitive Processing Therapy. I believe it is important to feel safe and supported to foster growth in oneself. My intention is to provide a calm, safe and empathetic space to support you on your path to deeper wholeness.

Pronouns

she/her

Why did you become a mental health professional?

To help others, oftentimes at their greatest moment of need heal from and overcome life challenges so they can achieve a healthier life.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

Meditate.

How do you recharge?

Rest. I believe in making time and giving myself permission to rest.

Do you have any pets?

I have a dog named Ace. Ace is a 5yo mini/ full Yorkshire Terrier Mix. The dog trainer said dogs don't understand spoken language, but when I get on Ace he talks back. I was verbally reprimanding him for leaving his toys out and told him I was taking his toys away until he earned them back. He starts not growling, barking, or crying- but "fussing/ talking" back. Imagine that!!
