My Approach to Helping
I will never forget that terrible feeling that engulfed me. I was 19 years old and struggling just to catch my breath. I couldn't focus on anything but the sheer panic. I was having my first panic attack. It was a trusted therapist who came to my rescue. My therapist turned out to be a lighthouse for me when I was lost. With compassionate guidance she helped me heal and rid myself of the anxiety and panic. I valued what she did so much that it became my goal to also be that lighthouse for others who are drowning.
I have 20 years experience specializing in anxiety, panic, depression, PTSD, trauma, excessive shame/guilt, anger, and relationship issues. I utilize techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, self compassion, and approach things through the psychodynamic perspective to help clients reach their unique goals.
I take the time to listen, understand, and develop a safe and healing working environment. If you are struggling with your own issues and know it's time for a change, let my experience and expertise work for you.
