My Approach to Helping

My philosophy with therapy is that people are not their diagnoses or traumas. People need authentic compassion, kindness, and attunement they often don't receive in their daily lives. Therapy can help from the start to provide some of those unmet needs. Therapy can be hard work at times and also one of the best gifts to give yourself. People and their stories are complex, and there is no one mold that fits all. I use a very individualized approach to see how we can best support your needs and goals.

I believe real healing happens in the therapeutic relationship between us. No matter what you are coming to therapy for, a trusting and communicative relationship can help to provide safety when processing deeper, original wounds. The therapeutic relationship can model healthy and authentic ways of relationally being with another person in an honest, intimate, and vulnerable way.

More Info About My Practice

I am currently providing virtual therapy through a confidential and secure platform. Many people find teletherapy more convenient and comfortable from their own home.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

Listen to yourself. We each have an instinct and you do in fact know yourself better than anyone else. What are your needs? Can you trust this person? I believe it is important part of therapy to continue to strengthen that inner knowingness.

It is always important to find a therapist with the right credentials and training for what you are seeking, yet it is what cannot be learned through books that you really receive in the therapeutic relationship - connection, understanding, and hope for positive change.

Groups I Work With

    I often work with people with deep empathy who are natural caretakers. This can lead to prioritizing the care of others over yourself, stress, burn-out, and not getting your needs met. I work with individuals who identify as highly sensitive persons (HSP's), creatives, and healers.

    I work with people who have experienced trauma, have difficulty regulating their nervous system, or have high anxiety. I work to help resolve these challenges by using Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). This helps different parts of the brain more aptly communicate to alleviate feelings of distress caused by triggers.

    I work with people experiencing chronic pain to help alleviate psychogenic pain with Pain-Reprocessing Therapy. I serve individuals with chronic illness and physical disabilities.
