My Approach to Helping

My intention is to provide a comfortable, safe space for clients to explore, heal and grow. I have years of experience helping individuals in crisis due to a wide variety of life's challenges and traumas. Together, we uncover and dismantle, confusion, negativity and blocks to healing. Your progress towards defined goals, feeling better and healing may resolve in a short amount of time or take longer. It's important to note, that therapy is a process, of uncovering and awakening to greater self-awareness. My approach is to tailor my experience and skills in a compassionate, honest and direct manner, to help you experience your truth, regain-balance, self-acceptance and feeling better about your life.

More Info About My Practice

My interest is in working with individuals to uncover and understand the impact of how life's events impact us on a multitude of levels, emotional, physical, relational and spiritual.

The majority of my training and experience is in the treatment of complex trauma. There are a multitude of difficult experiences that impact our lives negatively, our sense of self and our relationships. Traumas include, unresolved childhood events, adult experiences, in relationships or due to community / global events.
