My Approach to Helping
All human beings want to be seen, understood, and accepted; and, we can all have healthy relationships, fulfilling lives, and a peaceful journey. I invite you to come as you are. My areas of focus include narcissistic abuse recovery, healing from trauma, utilizing mindfulness with anxiety & stress, personal growth & life transitions, and working with individuals and couples on relationship and intimacy work--including high-conflict divorce and separation, co-parenting, blended families, and stepfamilies. Some of my training includes Level 1 & 2 training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and EMDR.
My purpose is to help you find the tools and support to access your own inner wisdom and experience more joy. I work with teens, adults of all ages, couples, and families, and operate through an all-inclusive lens, utilizing evidenced-based practices from a Humanistic, feminist, anti-racist, person-centered, strength-based, LGBTQIA+ affirmative, and trauma-informed perspective. I utilize traditional talk therapy along with mindfulness, positive psychology, breath work, EMDR, and the Gottman Method, as needed based on a client's particular needs and style.
I am passionate about the resiliency of the human spirit. I view therapy as an opportunity to discover and strengthen the coping skills that help us navigate the ebb and flow of life while taking the time to examine what is and isn’t working for us personally and in our relationships. Seeking support is the hardest first step, and I look forward to speaking with you about how I may help you continue your journey.
