About My Clients

You are insightful and self aware, you know all of the “right” things to do and think, and yet you still struggle to truly feel good enough. Have you spent your life trying to achieve and move up the ladder and still feel anxious, panicky, or like something is missing? You might be a people pleaser and struggle to say no or to set healthy boundaries. Maybe you have a hard time showing all of yourself to loved ones and instead present only the parts of yourself that seem likable.

My Background and Approach

Maybe hard things have happened to you that continue to bother you. Maybe you didn't get the loving and safe childhood that all kids deserve. You don't need to live with that critical voice being in control of your life or that relentless anxiety. You don’t need to stay trapped inside your past experiences. It's possible to truly feel different. Have you been in therapy before and feel like you reached a plateau or weren’t able to get the deeper level of healing you hoped for? I am able to help you to find deeper healing through my use of EMDR, in combination with effective talk therapy approaches and a holistic approach to healing. I take an active and collaborative approach to therapy. I will help you build skills to help calm your nervous system, to naturally shift your thinking, and to gain insight into your patterns. As a certified yoga instructor, I also have a strong understanding of the mind body connection. Many clients tell me they wish they had found me years ago.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we are all capable of change and healing. While we may unconsciously keep repeating the same patterns in life, we don't have to. Therapy can help to bring insight into the patterns, underlying beliefs, and connected past experiences that you may be stuck in and help you learn to develop new ways of feeling and being. I am a huge animal lover and my two dogs make my life immeasurably better. Cats are okay too. I believe in social justice, equality for all, and inclusivity. I want to help build a better world.
