About My Clients

My clients know that they are not living their best life, but often cannot figure out why. They know they are affected by their past, but feel like they shouldn't be. They get triggered by partners, family, and friends, and decide it's safest to push others away than to explore old wounds. They often feel bogged down by their sadness, worry, guilt, and shame, and then disconnect from their emotions as protection. They want to break free from this pattern, and yet this is all they know.

My Background and Approach

My approach to counseling is collaborative, person-centered, and strengths-based. I use a trauma-, attachment-, and parts-informed approach to help clients explore how their past continues to affect them today. While I believe that the counseling relationship is more powerful than any theory or technique, and I strive to put the therapeutic alliance first, my practice is mainly informed by Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT).
