I believe in helping people thrive. I work with people from all walks of life to help them heal the psychological and emotional wounds of the past and become the best version of themselves in the present. I enjoy working with people from a holistic approach by helping them heal and grow their minds, hearts, bodies, and spirits. As a trauma therapist, I help people understand the connection of how their past hardships effect their present day. I love seeing people shift from the pain they feel to a flourishing awareness and gratitude of life. I believe in going at your pace and guiding you along the way to a brighter future of health and happiness.

More Info About My Practice
I work with individuals, families, couples, teens, adults, and love working with the LGBTQ community. I help my clients overcome trauma, grief/loss, depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship stress, low self esteem and low confidence. I use EMDR, DBT, REBT, Solutions focused, Strength Based, Gestalt, Somatic Therapy, and Mindfulness Based approaches to create a truly custom approach. By incorporating art, music, writing, books, movies, T.V., and other pop culture I create a fun and dynamic experience for my clients. I believe in using humor, creativity, fun, and passion to help people heal the wounds that are holding them back from flourishing. I adapt and shift my style to create a safe, non-judgmental environment full of hope, love, compassion, and empathy.
My Role as a Therapist
As a therapist, my role is to listen to my clients and offer a different, non-judgmental, and empathetic perspective. I love teaching others new ways of thinking, managing emotions, coping with stress, and healthy habits to help them bloom into the amazing people they always knew they were. I am a guide; your guide through life's numerous struggles and stressors. When people feel lost but know where they want to end up I help guide them through the murky swamps of life to end at their ideal destination.
My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'
Although some disorder have a strong genetic component to them, I believe that most disorders people struggle with come from past traumas. Past traumas do not necessarily mean a life threatening event but can be seemingly common events such as growing up with divorced parents, being bullied in high school, living with a family member addicted to drugs or alcohol, or having to move so often you never felt like you belonged. These life events have a much deeper impact on our lives than we care to admit. I help heal these past wounds so they are no longer holding people back from becoming the best version of themselves possible.
