About My Clients

If you feel like you’re sinking in the quicksand of everyday things, if unwanted thoughts and negative emotions get the best of you in the worst possible moments, I can help you quiet down the noise of negativity—empower you to create a mental space where you can summon insight, mindfulness, and resilience, and heal from your past wounds and trauma. I encourage strength and resilience in individuals, better parent-child relationships, and more peaceful homes.

My Background and Approach

I come from a client-centered approach where unconditional positive regard drives the work we will do. I’ve always believed that people are as different on the inside as they look on the outside and it is my job to connect with that special uniqueness to best support your growth. I approach therapy with compassion, warmth, a sense of humor, and without judgement. My goal is to provide a safe and comforting space for you to process any struggles, big and small, while learning to increase happiness and decrease pain. I work with adults age 18 and older using an eclectic mix of evidenced based treatments to help you identify, and have pride in, your strengths, as well as learn to have empathy and compassion for any weaknesses. I’m EMDR trained and certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and have experience using both the Gottman and Imago methods. I am committed to helping you get to the root of your problem so that change sticks!
