My Background and Approach
I specialize in bringing trauma interventions to reduce symptoms associated with Narcissistic Abuse, Spiritual Abuse and other traumas in California, Idaho, Utah and Pennsylvania. If you are feeling caught in a toxic relational cycle, I assist by helping you regain a sense of empowerment and control over your life.

Just like you are unique, I find no therapeutic concept is a one size fits all. My primary goal is to utilize my skills coupled with my intuition and our therapeutic relationship to help you gain insight and increase emotional freedom.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
All the strengths assessments say my number one character trait is 'authenticity'. I am considered a Rogerian therapist....a humanist. I care about you and your well-being. Carl Rogers is the father of a person-centered approach to therapy. His following quote resonates deeply with me. “People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner. I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” Regardless of what has you seeking therapy, I believe at the core of your being, there is nothing wrong with you. Life is a growth process and sometimes toxic relationships, illness or other unexpected circumstances gridlock our journey leading to feeling stuck. I will be there as you find your way out of your emotional stalemate and find a way to re-engage in your journey of life.
