To be a part of a process in which clients heal wounds, enact change, and grow as humans is nothing short of magical – it’s why I do what I do and I strive to offer a judgment-free, genuine, and accepting place to do those things.
I have enjoyed working with individuals experiencing life adjustments, anxiety, depression, and trauma. I have the most experience helping couples struggling with communication, infidelity, disconnection in the relationship, sexual concerns, divorce or separation, and other life events. I have a special interest in working with women in areas of self-esteem, assertiveness, sexual wellbeing, perfectionism, and co-dependency.
I deeply believe in the value of human relationships and the power of empathy and sincerity. I see people as experts of their own lives, often capable of more than we tend to believe. While I have been trained in a variety of theoretical frameworks, I use different approaches to best fit the needs of my clients; though a few of my favorite modalities are emotional focused therapy, internal family systems, and interpersonal psychotherapy. I have also been trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a psychotherapy treatment that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing or traumatic life experiences.
