About My Clients

I work with women of all ages, as I am passionate in helping others heal. My specializations include faith, anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, people pleasers, and grief. I firmly believe that the "fit" and the relationship is the most important part of what makes therapy helpful to people. I tend to do well with folks who don't mind going 'deep' - looking at patterns from the past, making connections and insights into how these impact their present behavior, and working from that.

My Background and Approach

My basic framework for treatment is psychodynamic psychotherapy, although I draw from other theories and methodologies as appropriate. I focus on your strengths: the tools, support, and positive factors that have helped you get this far. No matter how overwhelming life seems, you are more than the sum of your problems. I take an integrative approach that considers you as a whole person: mind, emotions, body, and spirit.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Are you seeking a safe non judgmental space? Feeling stuck? Or maybe stressors of life have you feeling spread thin? No matter why you’re seeking help now, I’m sure you just want to feel better - less confused, sad, anxious, guilty or scared. I can support and help you in making changes that will lead to a more fulfilling and satisfying life. Drawing on my extensive “real world” experience of struggles; trauma(s), career, raising a family, and marriage....I bring a grounded (not textbook) approach that will help you get from where you are now to where you want to be. How often have you been overlooked, gaslit, or ignored by others whose role was to help you? How many professionals treated you as if you were just another case number or neglected to build rapport in getting to know you, for you? I have felt the exact same way. Instead of contributing to the problem, I adapted a mindset to become a part of the solution in helping others in need.
