My Approach to Helping

Are you struggling with a separation or divorce, feeling overwhelmed, sad, lost, exhausted or alone. I offer both individual counseling and a peer separation and divorce support group to help people begin to regain their footing, recover from the losses, changes, and challenges that separation and divorce can bring.

Is anxiety interfering with your daily life, causing you to feel worried, sad and stressed? Anxiety and loss are part of our human experience, and trauma and unexpected changes can lead to sadness, worry, confusion. Sometimes we can’t even pinpoint why we feel the way we do, we just know we don’t like it and we want it to change.

I have been offering interactive, mindful and compassionate centered counseling and coaching for over 15 years to people looking for help with relationships, anxiety and stress, sadness, transitions, divorce.

I work with couples to navigate and decrease conflict, increase communication, strengthen and rebuild trust, intimacy and friendship. Tools to understand and work with communication, conflict, trust, emotion, values and dreams.

More Info About My Practice

My counseling and peer support group are all online, using HIPAA compliant video platforms.

I hold a biweekly peer support group on Wednesdays for people going through separation and divorce, offering a supportive space to share your experience and gain support from others who understand what you are going through.

I offer trauma informed counseling and coaching blending traditional talk and mind-body approaches in my work, using elements of story, body wisdom, intuition, mindfulness, self-compassion and neuroscience to help people become the author and leader of their own lives.

To reduce the effects of trauma and other psychological stressors, I use Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), an evidenced based therapy that uses eye movements and voluntary image replacement within a protocol that works with your nervous system to help bring your brain and body back to a state of calm or regulation.

I also offer extended or intensive sessions using Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) and other modalities for targeted work on issues in a condensed time frame in lieu of 60 minute weekly over time. Contact me for more information.

My Therapy Focus

My counseling approach is strength based, meaning I work collaboratively with you to identify and build upon your existing strengths, skills, and resources towards your counseling goals.

I deeply believe the work of therapy is the work of coming home to ourselves. I believe what you are longing for is already within you. Life, events and trauma can can cause us to disconnect from our Self, our ability to be present, and connect with others and our lives. Let's find your healing path back home.
