My Approach to Helping

Welcome to my practice. I am glad you are here. It takes incredible courage and bravery to ask for help. Research shows that our level of health and satisfaction is often impacted by the quality of our present and past connections. I can offer a place where you can be seen, heard understood, and valued. I work with clients with depression, anxiety, adoption-related concerns, body image concerns, post-partum depression, sexual abuse, attachment issues, relationship problems, PTSD, adult children of alcoholics, low self-esteem, and co-dependency.

There is a Native American saying that says the longest journey we will ever take is the 18 inches from your head to your heart. I use a combination of cognitive therapies, EMDR, creative arts therapies, and advanced integrative therapy. I also love and facilitate Brene Brown’s work on vulnerability and shame.

I am in-network with several insurance plans and I can offer a receipt for plans with out of network benefits. The first 30-minute consultation is always free.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

The greatest thing about being a therapist is that I get to meet some of the most brave and courageous people on the planet.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I am a fellow traveller on this journey. I believe that my own personal work has greatly influenced my ability to connect with my heart. I will continue to do my own work so I can show up in the best possible way.
