I believe that you have the innate capacity to heal, develop, and grow. Entering therapy takes courage and commitment so it will be my first priority is to create feelings of safety and trust. From this base we can work together to identify inner conflicts, clarify beliefs, and release limiting patterns to support you in living a more authentic and fulfilling life. I work with individuals, couples, adolescents, and families. I treat anxiety and depression, trauma grief and loss, life stage transitions, parenting issues, co-dependency, and gambling addictions. I am trained in EMDR to treat PTSD, trauma and anxiety.
I enjoy working with teens and their issues that include: anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, self-inflicted injuries, suicidal ideation, and self-esteem problems. I offer practical ideas to navigate the influences of our social network and media saturated cultures. We utilize multi-mediums to enhance insight and problems solving skills.
Clients are provided a safe and confidential space to explore a deeper understanding of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. My style is open, compassionate, and nonjudgmental. If change is what you are seeking be prepared to laugh, cry, and look within to discover yourself and others in a new way.
