We all need someone who can hold space for us. Hold space to process the past. Hold space to process how the past is showing up in the present. And hold space to process a different future. Regardless of what season of hurt or difficult circumstances you’re in, I believe hurt and hope can coexist. Let’s process through the pain and get to the other side where there’s hope and new ways of living. Some of the niche areas I specialize in: -Emotional/psychological abuse -Destructive relational patterns -Attachment difficulties -Parenting towards a secure attachment

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I love the consultation process so clients can find a therapist they have a strong rapport with—this is so important! Once the prospective client makes that decision, I will send an email from Alma to gather consent, insurance info, and a basic intake form. The first session is a bit of information gathering, but I also like to jump right in and get additional information as it is relevant to the therapeutic goals. I am straightforward but relaxed and relatable. It’s important for us to explore what’s bringing you to therapy so you can gauge progression toward therapeutic goals. If you’re a reader, I love to provide relevant books as well as suggestions for between sessions. I love working with individuals in their late teens up to their later years of life.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

EMDR Cognitive behavioral therapy Trauma-informed care Psycho-education and recommending books and podcasts Solution focused therapy Attachment focused therapy
