My Approach to Helping

I have a resolute belief that each person has the ability to become the person they want to be. There are many experiences in a persons life that cloud their vision. I feel that the actions needed to achieve the self-actualized self can be discovered by processing life experiences in a way that changes how they are incorporated in daily life. Often, people are trying to be what they think others want them to be rather than focusing on their own vision. I seek to work through these issues whether they be traumatic or non-traumatic experiences with a client centered approach. You are the only expert about your life. I feel my role in their exploration is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space along with exercises fit to your needs. I draw my interventions from humanistic approaches and EMDR. I strive to make sure that you find the inner peace and life satisfaction as fast as posible

More Info About My Practice

My passion is for issues resulting from traumatic experiences in any way that manifests in your life. There is help if you have experienced trauma in your life and it is impacting you negatively. Regardless of the trauma's source, I am dedicated to helping find your way out of the perspectives created by those events.

My Role as a Therapist

I feel that my role as a therapist is assisting exploring the experiences and situations that you allow to hold you back from becoming who want to be. I provide a safe non-judgmental space for you to discover how your life is being impacted by how you conceptualize your reality.
