About My Clients
I approach my work with an understanding that your experience is unique, and I appreciate the courage it takes to engage in therapy. It is important to me that you feel heard and understood as we explore the sources of your difficulty. My relationship with clients is always collaborative, holding you as the expert in your life. Sessions typically focus on building insight into how past experiences affect us today, along with developing and/or strengthening the skills needed to achieve wellness.
My Background and Approach
I specialize in treating traumatic stress, codependency and relationship issues, addiction and substance abuse (yours or a loved ones) life transitions, grief and loss, spiritual development and HSP's, anxiety/worry/panic, mood disorders and depressive symptoms, and complex PTSD. I utilize an eclectic approach, meaning there is no, "one size fits all" within my philosophy. However, I am extensively trained and have over a decade of experience using CBT, DBT, strengths-based, psychodynamic, mindfulness, and a trauma-informed approach. I have also been practicing EMDR and somatic-based therapies for the past three years.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I am the epitome of a "questioner" and have always had a vivacious passion for developing my own self-understanding. Now, I get to work with individuals and assist them in their own questioning of themselves, of the people around them, and of life.
