My Approach to Helping

Whether from illness or injury, chronic pain affects every aspect of a person’s life. Financial stress, isolation, spirituality issues, relationship stress, severe anxiety and depression, feelings of low self-worth and a search for meaning can all result from prolonged chronic pain. I offer understanding and acceptance to the people I work with, and education and support to their families. I approach chronic pain from a Biopsychosocial model, integrating the many areas of life that chronic pain affects including physical limitations, self-image, and personal relationships. There is life after pain.

More Info About My Practice

Every aspect of life is affected by pain. Therefore, a holistic, mind, body, spirit approach is needed to help people heal and re-create a life after chronic pain. Acceptance, compassion, education, and support inform my work. I provide the space, support, and tools needed to help people explore and create their healing journey. This may be through person-centered talk therapy, EMDR, CBT, mindfulness, yoga, or creating and exploring an art piece that gives voice to what's inside. You do not have to through go this alone. Let me walk with you during this part of your journey.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

I have found it can take as long as 6 months from when a person begins looking for help and actually reaching out for help. In that time, unhelpful brain patterns are strengthened, anxiety, stress, and depression may worsen, and we can grow to feel more isolated than before. It takes tremendous courage to say "I don't think I can do this alone anymore". You are worthy of help and hope. Call today.
