My Approach to Helping

Reaching out for support can be a challenging process. I encourage you to take a step for your well being and personal growth. My first priority is to provide a comfortable space where you feel relaxed when expressing your concerns. By listening attentively and without judgment, my goal is to understand your perspective. With this understanding, I am able to assist in ways that compliment your unique mindset and tendencies. Not only will I validate your concerns, but I will also considerately and respectfully provide perspectives on unhelpful thought patterns that I may notice. I practice with a trauma informed lens and offer EMDR.
Opening up and expressing your concerns in a confidential setting can provide significant relief! EMDR has proven to be very beneficial for resolving emotions when an increased understanding does not relieve distress. Together, we can develop awareness, perspectives, and skills that will increase your ability to navigate life's challenges and thrive.
If you seek help to develop more self-awareness and work to prioritize your well being, there is no doubt that you will experience beneficial changes in your life and relationships. Whether you are facing trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, substance use, or academicprofessional stress we can develop an personalized treatment path for you.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Helping clients feel comfortable, create broader perspectives, and overcome challenges inspires me to engage fully and utilize my training each day. I look forward to connecting!
