I am so glad you are here! I know how important it is to have a safe space to heal and grow. A space where you are heard, accepted, and cared for in a comfortable, safe environment without judgment or criticism. I believe the client-therapist relationship is crucial to growth and change. I am ready to meet you where you are and support you in doing the hard work to build the safety necessary to reach this goal.
I am passionate about helping others find hope and healing. I have journeyed with clients dealing with grief, loss, anxiety, depression, and the many challenges life throws at us. I am trained and experienced in the treatment of trauma and PTSD, with children, teens and adults, parenting after trauma, as well as grief and loss, sexual assault, and domestic abuse. I utilize evidenced-based approaches including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Play Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Attachment-Based Therapies.
I come from a place of experience when it comes to grief and loss. I learned first-hand how different the world looked and felt after a significant loss. Even though I’ve experienced painful losses, I won’t tell you “I know how you feel”. I am grateful for the people who met me where I was and shared their hope when I had lost mine. No matter what difficulties you are facing, you are not alone. It would be my honor to walk beside you in your journey as you uncover the best version of you!
