My Approach to Helping

Things gets difficult. Moods and relationships sometimes get in the way of being our best, of making the most out of life. My role is guiding you to become the “you” with less anxiety, less depression and more positive relationships. I work with adult individuals, to regulate moods, reduce the impact of trauma, identify the patterns in their lives and in significant relationships, in order to improve quality of life. I have over 15 years of experience with mood regulation, plus specialize in relationships including those with substance abuse or alcohol (AOD Certification from 2006) or codependency, and offer extensive EMDR or trauma-focused CBT guidance. Contact me to begin your journey, and I would be honored to guide you through this brave step towards healing.

More Info About My Practice

I offer in-person or online sessions for adult individuals. My expertise in relationships and mood regulation, self-esteem and trauma work is extensive. However I also am a nationally registered art therapist--though art therapy is adjunctive, meaning only offered when appropriate and entirely up to you as the client. Researchers have identified the possible effects of art therapy: \"…Art, either the process of creating it or viewing others artworks, is used to help people explore their emotions, develop self-awareness, cope with stress, boost self-esteem, and work on social skills.” My goal is to provide whatever therapeutic tools work best for you!

    I work with adults 18 and over, dealing with mood regulation and relational issues. Mood issues may include anxiety, panic, and depression, as well as underlying self-esteem.
