About My Clients

Are you feeling anxious, down, or just not like yourself lately? Perhaps painful memories weigh heavy on your mind and heart. Whether you are feeling stuck, in crisis or preparing for a change, I am here to provide a safe, nonjudgmental space for you to better understand yourself and your path forward and to increase your capacity to navigate difficult life events, overcome fear and anxiety and heal from past trauma wounds— and ultimately experience more meaning and fulfillment in your life.

My Background and Approach

I am licensed in both Arkansas and Illinois and specialize in treating anxiety and trauma. I often incorporate somatic experiencing, a body-oriented approach, into traditional talk therapy. In my work I have realized that often times anxiety and depression stem from wounds of the past. When we experience something disturbing or even scary and threatening, our bodies, both the physical sensations and emotions that result from it, often become stuck. Tuning into feelings and sensations in our body can help release them and in turn we feel more in control of ourselves emotionally and more regulated/balanced. I also draw from cognitive behavioral therapy which helps in becoming more aware of how thoughts and beliefs may be contributing to feelings and then discovering alternative perspectives that may be more helpful.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

We all have the resources within us to heal. I believe that we all need a deep and caring relationship with ourselves as well as feeling connected to others in order to experience fulfillment and meaning in life. The quality of relationship that we have with ourselves is so important and is what can get us through the most challenging and difficult times because it is truly the only thing within our control. I am knowledgeable about issues within the LGBTQ community and work towards the inclusion and acceptance of all people.
