My Approach to Helping
Humans are made of all different parts: anger, fear, inner critic, anxiety, depression, overwhelmed, stress, saboteur, etc. These parts can take over and run havoc in our lives. Using mindfulness, somatic therapy, neuroscience, parts work, and EMDR, I help you get in touch with these parts that are no longer serving you and help to resolve their intensity in your live so that you can have a more peaceful, productive life in relationship with self or others.
I have seen many individuals who felt shamed, stressed, stuck, andor suicidal make lasting changes that have transformed their lives and are now living a more peaceful, productive, and joy-filled life.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
Growing up I had experienced a lot of trauma. I did not feel accepted, wanted, or seen as a child. My self worth was non-existant. It is only through my own healing journey that I have come to truly value the work of psychotherapy. If you are ready to live a more authentic, joy-filled life, than I would be honored to assist you in your journey. I find the work I do as a psychotherapist truly rewarding. You will too when you are ready to take that first step. I look forward to meeting you.
