My Approach to Helping
As a counselor with 10 years working with families with traumatic histories, I can understand where many issues can come from. I use a much-needed and compassionate approach to integrating traumatic memories in order to become fully healed. As your therapist, I would help guide your present self to reconnect gently with your past selves who have experienced trauma. I would act as a bridge-builder between your different selves and allow them kindness, respect, and love. It's a meditative and intimate experience and it produces long-lasting change in a short amount of time.

My Therapy Focus
I am forward looking and solution focused. I look to the past to see how it has informed the present which will lead us to where we can make changes for the future. The body has a way of telling us when something is wrong and I believe that the mind-body connection is a way to greater overall healing.
