My Approach to Helping

Are you feeling paralyzed with overwhelming anxiety or shame? Are you stuck in negative thoughts and unhealthy patterns borne out of a traumatic past that deter you from making positive changes in your life for the future? Your suffering can end through transformative experiences in trauma-specific therapy. I strive to create a therapeutic environment where you feel safe, respected, and understood, and thus ready and open for change. You will develop a sense of safety in your body and relationships with others, learn to overcome overwhelming emotions and increase confidence in approaching life's challenges, and redefine your future.
