My Approach to Helping

My most important concern is offering clients an open, safe, welcoming space. I structure my practice around creating a relationship of collaboration and trust. I am client-centered, and understand that we each view and interact with the world differently. Everyone has a unique story to share. I see my clients as experts on their own lives. They are competent people who can create and sustain change.

My trauma-informed focus makes me aware of the role privilege and power play in a client’s experience. I am passionate about offering my clients empowerment and hope to uncover their strengths and find a sense of resilience. I see the body as the most powerful resource we have. We can learn much from listening to what it tries to tell us.

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

I have specialized training in trauma assessment and treatment, which allows me to conduct formal trauma assessments, as needed/requested. I also offer animal-assisted therapy for clients who might benefit from a professionally trained therapy dog. My therapy dog, Jaguar, is a black lab who I often use to help people with anxiety, trauma, depression, and assertiveness.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Being able to be a part of my clients' journeys to positive change in their lives is gift and a privilege. Being with them in times of pain and difficulty, assisting them in finding / rediscovering their own inner strengths, and witnessing their progress towards meeting their goals for wellness is highly fulfilling for me, as a helper, and I am grateful each day for being a part of their experience.
