You are unique; equipped with a particular set of life experiences that have shaped you and brought you to this point in your life. In a safe, nurturing environment, with curiosity and compassion, I can help you explore your internal world, your struggles, and how to move forward. Healing and growth can begin when you understand, trust, and value yourself fully.
My Background and Approach
I practice a strengths based, client centered approach while using therapeutic models that best meet each individual’s needs. In unison, we will observe the impact of life experiences, and I will support you in identifying underlying thoughts, beliefs and feelings that may limit greater fulfillment in life, work, school and relationships. As an EMDR trained therapist, I help individuals with processing and relieving trauma symptoms.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I am a licensed therapist with a Masters of Science in Counseling Psychology. But, that is only part of what I bring to my work. I also bring my life experience as the mother of three grown children, as the daughter of aging parents, as an artist who believes that creative expression opens our minds and hearts, and as a citizen of the world who spent decades living in another culture outside of the United States. All of this enhances what I do in my work as a therapist, and helps me better understand each client’s struggles and needs and hopes for the future.
