My Approach to Helping

I know how painful it is to feel sad, anxious, or depressed. Those feelings can affect every relationship

you have, but you do not have to face them alone. I offer understanding, empathy, and a safe space to

openly express your feelings and thoughts. Together, we will process how your relationships and

experiences affect your happiness, communication style, mood, and the way you view yourself.

I have experience working with trauma survivors, including adult children of alcoholics (ACOA) and

survivors of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. I a trained in EMDR, which is one of the most

effective ways to treat trauma. I also have extensive experience helping couples deal with relational


I view therapy as a journey to greater self-empowerment. As a therapist, I am committed to equipping

you with the tools you need to better navigate your life. My responsibility is to support you as you

embark on this important emotional journey. Our shared goal is to create positive and lasting change in

your life.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

One of my greatest strengths as a therapist is working with survivors of trauma, including, adult children of alcoholics, victims of domestic violence, and children, adolescents, young adults, and adults who have experienced sexual, physical, and emotional abuse. My responsibility is to support my clients as they go through this emotional experience.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I find it a great honor to pay witness to my clients' emotional journeys. There is nothing more gratifying and moving as when a client identifies growth and change in their life, and subsequently, a greater feeling of happiness. It is my passion to assist my client's in this process.
