My Approach to Helping

I specialize in unpacking and healing from trauma, specifically supporting individuals who have experienced sexual abuse. That may include issues of experiencing low self-esteem, guilt, shame, difficulty setting boundaries, expressing emotions, and much more.

My goal is to help and empower you to uproot any unconscious (or conscious) unhealthy patterns of behaviors and thoughts and to discover and experience what it means to be hopeful again and become a healthier, true self. So I utilize various therapeutic approaches, including strength-based, trauma-focused, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and other modalities. We can collaborate and see what works best for you together.

More Info About My Practice

Our practice name is "Strong Roots Therapy" because we believe that when we build strong roots, we can build beautiful lives. We seek to get to the "root" of the problem and help you live the life you want. I believe in the importance of a therapeutic relationship and building trust. I offer a free 15-minute consultation to see if we are a good fit.
