My Approach to Helping

Whatever brings you to see me, I am here to walk alongside you on your personal journey. I provide non-judgmental support to help you gain clarity, confidence, and compassion for yourself and the pain you are experiencing. I also help provide a framework so you can explore what you are feeling and make sense of the confusion you are feeling. This life journey is full of ups and downs, and beginnings and endings. These changes and transitions can occur suddenly leaving us feeling jarred, confused, and frustrated. I can help you navigate these times with more awareness and understanding.

I believe in your innate ability to navigate these times in your life while also understanding the need for support and to feel heard and acknowledged. As humans, we are made to connect and seek support in times of change or distress. It can be helpful to have a safe place to explore and equip ourselves with new tools. Contact me to schedule an appointment.

My Therapy Focus

My work focuses on relationship and couples counseling, premarital counseling, teen counseling, family counseling, and parenting support. I work with couples using proven couples therapy methodologies to help bring healing into relationships. I employ EMDR Therapy and Somatic Experiencing Therapy in my work with individuals and couples with trauma histories.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

My own journey in counseling led me to become a therapist. I pursued counseling to help get relief during periods of intense trauma and loss, both as a child and an as an adult. When I first sought counseling, I didn't know what to expect. I just knew I needed support and relief from the overwhelming emotions I was feeling. The therapist walked the journey with me- she didn't try to change what I was experiencing but sought to understand, help normalize my experience, and gave me the tools to regulate my nervous system. She helped me find the wisdom within myself. I felt heard, seen, and accepted for who I was- my whole self. I developed more compassion and gentleness for myself as a human being on this life journey. I felt more empowered to make decisions, to assert myself, and to be in a relationship with others.
