My Approach to Helping

My intention is to partner with you so that you can bring balance and wellness into your life. I begin with the understanding that each individual is whole and has the inherent ability to cope with life’s struggles, no matter how much pain that person may be experiencing. While emotional distress can have a profound effect on our bodies and our minds, growth and change are always possible. Through a safe and supportive counseling partnership, we can repair relational wounds. I bring a compassionate and collaborative approach, inviting you to tap into your inner wisdom, to explore your thoughts and feelings, and to discover new ways of being. Our diverse backgrounds inform who we are, and I will work with you to make changes in your life while honoring your culture and your values.

I have over 20 years of social service experience, primarily working with adults and children who experienced abuse. I have also worked in community mental health settings, helping clients address a wide range of symptoms and issues, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, and grief. I have specialized training in Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, and am informed by Existential Psychology, Neuropsychology, Attachment Psychology, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and other mindfulness-based approaches.
