Therapy Style

I work with individuals to help gain insight into what is happening in order to move forward and achieve a more fulfilling and productive life. My goal is to help you understand yourself more and assist you with living a more free and conscious life. I use attachment theory to assist people in understanding how their past impacts their present. I specialize in treating addiction, trauma, codependency, relationship issues, and axis II disorders using a holistic trauma informed approach and dialectical behavioral techniques.

My approach blends years of experience, education, and professional training with insight, mindfulness, and compassion. I have received ongoing specialized training to treat developmental trauma and childhood abuse and neglect. I provide a safe space where we can work together to move forward.

Pronouns

she/her

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I've always been curious and fascinated by human behavior and why we do things. I think I initially started to understand myself and others better and it transformed from there.

What are your interests outside of work?

Running, hiking, anything outdoors! I played sports all my life so I love being active. Also I love spending time with my family and traveling.

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

Going outside. Every time I go outside I see something new and get a change in perspective. Also I walk my dog and try to see the world through his eyes which is simple and in the present moment.

What book have you read more than once?

The Body Keeps the Score. It is so informational and insightful about how trauma effects every part of our brain and body.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

Peace over violence. I was honored to spend my training and internship there and later go back as a trauma therapist. I saw the impact we had as an organization everyday for survivors.

How do you recharge?

I love to cook. Serving food to myself and others is one of my love languages.

Do you have any pets?

Yes! I can't imagine not having a dog in my life. So many good stories and so many good laughs. I think my favorite is when he graduated from puppy academy and they played "Who Let the Dogs Out" and he ran down the aisle with his graduation hat. The laughs never stop with him. Also when we took him sheep herding for the first time (as a pure bred border collie he was a natural).
