My Approach to Helping

Even though your life looks great on the surface, you feel worried, as if it could all fall apart at any moment. To everyone around you, it looks like you\'ve \"got it together.\" But deep inside, you feel like an impostor. You\'d like to be more authentic, but you worry about what would happen if other people knew the \"real\" you.

Peace. Freedom. Happiness. Confidence. Those aren’t just words. They are what happens when we live our truth. The path takes courage, but you’re worth it! And the payoffs are pretty darn good. You CAN be your authentic self in relationships. You CAN be free of chronic worry. You CAN feel secure in yourself now. Sound good? I can help you get there.

I use EMDR and Brainspotting, effective therapies to help to heal anxiety and increase your confidence in being YOU. I also integrate nondual spiritual teachings and presence practices. You can re-discover your fundamental wholeness! I am available for in-person and online appointments.
