About My Clients

Bad things are bound to happen in life - this is just part of being alive. Sometimes it is easy for us to bounce back to our to normal lives & then there are those other times where it seems as if we are stuck on a rollercoaster of emotions with no end in sight. And then at other moments, we think that we've dealt with this bad thing, only to have it keep popping up in random ways in our lives. I specialize in helping individuals slow down the rollercoaster and live the life they want to live.

My Background and Approach

I have extensive training in both Dialectical Behavior Therapy and EMDR to help individuals gain the coping skills needed to explore the past, take accountability for the present, and learn how to create the future they want. While I LOVE evidenced-based practices, I dislike how dry and boring they can be, so I use creativity, humor, and story-telling to bring these therapies to life. I also use appropriate self-disclosure so I feel less like a stranger and more like a real person. It is my goal to create a safe and validating environment that will aid you doing so and this provided both within and outside of the therapy room. That is, if you need support or would like to share a win outside of session, I want to hear from you! I will likely respond to you with a gif or meme along with suggestions or words of encouragement.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that all people are able to heal and create the life they want to live, they just have to find what works for them. While therapy is often a key part of this, I believe that there are multiple pathways to healing and I aim to help you find those. For me, finding Brazilian Jui Jitsu and yoga helped improve my life tremendously! Both aided me in finding a community to help support me, how find comfort in discomfort, and learn how failure can lead to success. I look forward to helping you figure out your pathways to healing, whether it be horseback riding, art, dancing, archery, gardening - to just name a few.
