About My Clients

Chronic Pain/Illness? Anxiety, Depression, Medical Trauma? Have you tried everything and something is still missing? If you're anxious or sad a lot of the time, if you're dealing with a new medical diagnosis or care for a family member with illness, or struggling with how to manage your own health & wellness while doing the rest of your life, or life just feels hard...you're in the right place. This is where I come in. There's no reason to keep living in pain, and change is absolutely possible.

My Background and Approach

I specialize in, and am passionate about working with adult individuals living with Chronic Pain and Medical Illness, and those who have experienced medical trauma. I am is a Somatic or Body-Oriented Mental Health Therapist and trained in EMDR, which means that I utilize our innate mind-body connection as a tool in counseling. Chronic Illnesses almost always have a psychological component, whether you’re experiencing a new diagnosis or chronic condition. Using EMDR, body awareness, breath-work, movement, as well as talk therapy, I work with clients to manage pain and develop a healthy relationship with their illness. My practice expertise also includes anxiety and stress management, depression, life transitions, and support for other helping professionals.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe strongly that whole-person centered, collaborative healthcare is vitality important. It is also the type of care that works best for those dealing with chronic pain and chronic medical illnesses. I became a therapist, and created a truly holistic and collaborative healthcare center, because this type of care did not exist when I needed it most in my life. I love what I do, and work with a team of colleagues who are just as passionate as I am about this type of care. I find great joy in providing a space where clients can shift from feeling chronically ill to chronically well. I have had healthcare providers tell me to not even try to have children, prescribe me medications without explanation, advise me to not follow my career aspirations, and so on and so on. My two children now have a happy mama who is loving her dream career and who’s health is managed well by providers who care and communicate with each other. We can do this, together.
