My Approach to Helping
I use kindness, empathy, and humor to create a safe space where clients can heal. I work with individuals, couples, and families. I am trained to meet the unique needs of First Responders as well as clients who are survivors of domestic and intimate partner violence. I am also trained in EMDR to help clients with past trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, addiction, eating disorders, flashbacks, nightmares, and phobias.
I am a mom of four and a partner of 27 years so I also really love to help clients who struggle with relationships, parenting, or marital problems.
Let me help you to improve your quality of living, by inviting change and joy into your life.
