My focus is on your individual journey; my energy & efforts are spent meeting you where you are to meet your goals. I have dedicated my life to helping adolescents, individuals, couples, and families overcome their life challenges with compassion & professional guidance. I incorporate my extensive experience with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after having worked within a suicide prevention and intervention program for at-risk adolescents. I have also had the opportunity to work with a diverse array of clientele in order to address a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, managing stress, relationships, military personnel, veterans, & their families.
I have earned certification in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and have been trained in Brainspotting. Both can be used effectively in addition to a nurturing therapeutic presence and the ability to engage another suffering human in a safe and trusting relationship where they feel heard, accepted, and understood.
My intention is to encouraging and inspiring others to be their healthiest, truest self. I have faith in my clients, I believe in their power, and I am honored and humbled by their permission to work to meeting their goals together on the journey.
“One of the hardest things in life is having words in your heart that you can’t utter.” –James Earl Jones
Unfortunately, time may not heal all wounds we encounter in life. This means that sometimes we need to seek out additional help to facilitate healing. Whether these wounds are brand new or decades old, they can have devastating effects on our emotional state, relationships, social functioning and other aspects of daily life.
I work with ages 10 and up (depending on the specific need for services) and specialize in the treatment of trauma and PTSD, complex trauma, grief and loss, recent traumatic events, attachment challenges, emotional issues, relationship and family difficulties, and many other challenges.
Trained and certified in several therapeutic modalities, my practice is integrative based on developmental age, centered on EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Brainspotting, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Client-Centered.
Understanding that our life experiences inform who we are today helps shape the work that is done. I believe in creating a safe and compassionate environment that is supportive of building a strong therapeutic relationship. My passion is my work– helping clients find solutions to create healing.
Please call or email me to inquire about availability and to schedule an appointment as my availability fluctuates. I am eager to work with clients who wish to move in a new direction in their lives.
