About My Clients

Perhaps you’re feeling tired of your struggles, overwhelmed or thinking will I ever feel comfortable in my skin? The voice in your head may be saying that you’re not good enough as you compare yourself to others, getting more anxious or depressed. You're not sure where to turn, but you know it’s time for a change. You CAN break the cycle of trauma or abuse. You CAN find clarity and a better understanding of of your thoughts and emotions. There is hope.

My Background and Approach

I’m board certified, my style is direct, without judgment, empathic and encouraging. An integrative, holistic approach to therapy can help quiet your inner critic, find light in the darkness, release trauma and blocks and give you tools that help with anxiety, anger and stress. Working together, as a team, in a safe environment is key to your healing journey. Your emotional well-being is only one part of the whole, along with physical and spiritual balance. You will leave our sessions feeling supported - receiving feedback, resources and/or tools. My intention is that you continue to make progress long after you stop therapy. I support clients who reach out between sessions in a limited but constructive way. Working with the right therapist brings a feeling of safety, support and healing. My clients often emerge confident, empowered, and surprised with how far they have come.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Empowerment. Acceptance. Connection. Hope. My practice is my ministry, not in a religious sense but in a way to serve our community and it’s residents. Created with the intention of assisting individuals on their journey to mental well being. I will help you find your truth, without judgment. Finding inner peace, releasing fears or resentments, being comfortable in your own skin, are some of the shifts that take place from deep healing. My vision is to foster knowledge and empowerment so you will continually make progress, long after you stop treatment. Using evidenced-based interventions, we, as a team, focus on your entire being. Integrating modalities that consider other aspects of treatment leads to a unique holistic approach. I have a particular interest in attending to concerns around trauma, impulse control, anxiety, substance abuse and long-term recovery and self esteem. I’m 12 step informed and believe in removing stigmatism around mental illness.
