My Approach to Helping
I provide each client a warm, compassionate, and safe space for you to share your story and feel heard. I believe that you are the expert on your own life, including your health, emotions, relationships, and body. I tailor my work with you to your individual needs and goals. I understand that taking the steps to begin therapy can be scary, and I hope to make you feel at home in the therapy space. My specialty areas include EMDR, somatic experiencing/mind-body work and mindfulness-based stress reduction. I am passionate about helping people to work on family/life adjustments, trauma, anxiety and panic, attachment/relational concerns, and depression. I provide individual therapy for adults who need trauma work or who are experiencing anxiety (including panic, phobias), self-esteem concerns, and depression. I am trained in EMDR to specifically work on traumatic events (both "big" and "small") and have specialized training to be able to adapt it throughout the lifespan (including young children). I also provide experiential play therapy for children 2-7 years old. Additionally, I am trained in Prepare/Enrich assessments for couples. I welcome people of all backgrounds (ethnicity, race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation) and strive to provide a safe and comfortable environment for all.
