It is my passion to help people thrive, grow, and overcome life's difficulties. If you struggle with stress, anxiety, depression, mood, troubling emotions, marriage & relationships, grief, self-esteem, traumatic experiences, identity, and spirituality concerns or if you'd just like to improve your quality of life, find more fulfillment, meaning, and self-understanding, I'm here to help.

Every person I work with is unique. From one's own life story, current heartaches & past losses, abilities, strengths and struggles....no two people are seen as the same. Due to this, each individual receives a unique therapeutic experience that is collaboratively tailored to meet their needs and goals.

I believe that everyone is capable of growing towards their own sense of well-being, that we're able to harness innate healing potential, and can overcome whatever stumbling blocks that might be hindering our best self. All we have to do is make the choice to stop being alone with it. Because of the natural capacities people have for growth and change, you'll find a therapeutic approach that is highly integrative, trauma informed, and rooted in cultivating deep personal transformation and healing for children, teens, and adults alike.

I provide: Individual Therapy for Teens & Adults, EMDR & Trauma Therapy, Couples Therapy, Parenting Consultation, Play Therapy for Children (ages 3-12), Ecotherapy, Applied Mindfulness Meditation Therapy as well as groups for Ecotherapy and Mindfulness.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Therapy can potentially help in so many ways. Clients generally see improvements in the quality of relationships, the ability to express oneself and communicate more effectively, an increased understanding of oneself, the ability to connect and heal on deep levels, increased feelings of groundedness and inner peace, decreased levels of anxiety & the ability to manage it, and improved control of persistent thoughts, worries, and overwhelming emotions...

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

The types of information we encounter through the media and various personalities we're exposed to growing up often times tell us that we have to be strong and obtain accomplishments on our own. We can be told that emotions make us weak and we can even come to feel flawed or ashamed for having them in the first place.

The fact is, humans are social creatures and without each other, we achieve very little. No one individual builds a school by themselves or sends a person into space. It takes cooperation, commitment, and a shared vision to achieve those things. The same can be applied to overcoming the personal difficulties we face in life.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

Therapy is another path to optimal health, just like going to the gym or eating healthy. Everyone can potentially benefit from therapy at different points in life, even therapists themselves. Sometimes however, depending on the nature of the problem(s) and reasons for attending therapy, a person may need to attend more or less than another person would in order to obtain the level of health they desire. Therapy always starts and ends when you want it to.
