About My Clients

Anxiety, Depression, Life Changes, Grief and Loss, Trauma, Sexual Abuse and Assault, Adult Children of Alcoholics. These are my areas of specialty. Give me a call or send me an email and let's figure out how I can help.

My Background and Approach

Whether it's "big T Trauma" or "little t trauma", no one's life is perfect. From a difficult breakup to family conflict, relationship concerns, the loss of a loved one, a global pandemic, or surviving any number of difficult experiences, the world is going to test you. With years of specialized training and experience in a variety of interventions I will meet you where you are and together we will create a map to help you move forward. I draw from CBT, ACT, Motivational Interviewing, Strengths-Based, Solution-Focused and Existential theories and practices. I have additional training and certification in EMDR, Ecotherapy, and Surviving Sexual Assault and Abuse. Please give me a call or email if you would like to schedule a free initial fifteen minute consultation and let's start to figure things out together.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a vegetarian transitioning toward vegan-hood - 75% there. I tried to make the jump all at once, but was reminded that the best way to make lasting change is to make one small consistent change at a time. I studied Wicca once, a long time ago, when I was searching for something more following the death of my mother. - "Do as ye will and ye do no harm." Am I remembering the creed correctly? In any case, what it means to me, and what I believe, is that everyone should have the right to live how they choose, as long as those choices don't cause harm to anyone. And a quick thought about nature - what a gift. If you don't decide to reach out to me, would you at least consider going for a walk, outside, someplace safe, the next time you have a chance? Admire a tree, feel the air on your skin, listen to the ground beneath your feet. Nature = healing.
