Life is full of joys, challenges, transitions, and opportunities for growth. We may find that there are times in our journey when we can benefit from someone walking alongside us and helping us to meet the challenges we are facing. As a therapist, it is my privilege to accompany and partner with individuals and families as they navigate the ups and downs of their own path. Therapy can be an opportunity to bring the road we find we are actually walking into closer alignment with our true, intuitive path, creating greater resonance and fulfillment in life.
My approach to counseling draws from several traditions. With a social work background, I believe in caring for the whole person—mind, body, and spirit—in an integrated and supportive way. Therapy is a partnership where you bring the expertise on your own experience and I bring knowledge, strategies, and tools to help work through the challenges you’ve identified. With clients, I utilize mindfulness, somatic work, CBT and DBT strategies, EFT, and Yoga and meditation in a truly embodied therapy that connects brain and body so you can fully process your feelings and experiences. I have studied Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), trained and certified in Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), been granted Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC) designations, and am in final steps of Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher Training certification.
My practice can be helpful to people experiencing physical and mental health concerns, post-trauma symptoms, transitions, difficult experiences in their past or with their family of origin, and a variety of other challenges. I have worked extensively with survivors of domestic and sexual violence and other forms of trauma, and engage in trauma-informed care. I also support individuals and families through chronic, acute, and life limiting illness. Together, we can address the stress, depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress that can arise from difficult life experiences, and even everyday life. I believe that a client/ therapist relationship based on authenticity, non-judgment, and positive regard supports the inherent potential for growth and wellness we all have within ourselves. I would love to meet you and have the opportunity to assist you in finding your best path to wellness and joy.
