My Approach to Helping

For me, the foundation of successful therapy is an authentic and meaningful therapeutic connection. That means providing you with the safety and compassion necessary for you to reconnect with yourself. It is through that connection that you can begin to take deep and meaningful steps toward restoring inner balance and creating lasting change. As someone who loves what I do, I continue to work on my own personal growth so that I am more able to fully support you with yours. I respect the significance of your individuality and take an integrative approach to meet your needs.

More Info About My Practice

Groups are starting in the Westminster location in January 2018. There will be a variety of adult groups starting in 2018 including anger management, relapse prevention and yoga for trauma and emotion regulation. If you are looking for a group setting please call for additional information.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

Choosing a therapist can be hard to do. There are many qualified therapists with different styles and areas of expertise. The most important factor is you. What do you need? What do you like? Is the person in front of you compassionate and caring? Is he or she willing to see your strengths, challenge you when appropriate and guide you in a way that fits your unique beliefs, learning styles and goals?

There is no blanket answer to address a particular type of distress and suffering. If you find someone you feel you can connect with, feel safe and supported by and that can challenge you in a way that facilitates your growth, therapeutic success is more likely- no matter what "technique is chosen."

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

Over the course of my education I was fortunate to learn and practice a variety of therapeutic techniques. My life and my practice changed when I developed an interest in trauma therapy. The discovery of practices such as Mindfulness, EMDR and brainspotting enabled me to realize the importance of doing my own personal "work".

A deeper understanding of what it means to be vulnerable, face my fears, recognize my strengths and grow from my experiences has changed my understanding of the human potential for healing and growth. These experiences have empowered me to be more compassionate, authentic, and fully present with every client I assist. Moreover, my personal work allows me to provide my clients with a safe, non-judgmental environment so that they may engage in deep work.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

It is important to understand that we all have times that we feel down, anxious, stressed or angry. When circumstances have gone beyond our control and our regular coping skills are not working it is easy to become overwhelmed. That is where therapy comes in.

It is never easy to ask for help and it is even harder to change. Despite the stigma of therapy, I would suggest that engaging in therapy is more of a sign of strength and courage. The clients that come to me are committed to restoring balance and meaning in their lives, I am humbled by their resiliency.
