Life can bring the smaller challenges and the ones that can rock you at your core. Whether you are encountering everyday life stressors, adjusting to life transitions, walking through and grieving the death of a loved one, end of a relationship, beginning to heal from trauma, or just wanting to feel better, therapy can be a place to share what you are experiencing and move through and beyond any pain, hurt or challenges.
I will meet you exactly where you are in your personal development and will take an interactive, collaborative, empathic, and honest stance to help you engage your own resources and create new ones. I believe that you have the ability to continue to discover and create the life you want.
I believe that therapy should support each client's unique set of life challenges, strengths and goals. I provide clients with information on additional therapies and tools available. When useful, I incorporate mindfulness, meditation, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and/or Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
