Has your sense of safety and security been compromised by trauma or adverse childhood experiences? Or perhaps lately you have been feeling “off” and are unsure what is wrong. Whether the issue you are experiencing is big or small, my objective is to create a safe space where we can collaborate to resolve any obstacles in the way of living the life you want. I specialize in working with individuals who have lived through traumatic experiences and/or struggle with depression, anxiety, stress or chronic pain that affects their well-being. I utilize a client-focused approach, as I believe you are the expert in your life, as well as integrate mindfulness and relaxation techniques to calm the nervous system and help you gain control of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. In our sessions together I will meet you where you are at with unconditional positive regard and empathetic understanding. I look forward to working together to reach your goals!

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

In our first session together I would like to get a good understanding of past and present challenges you are facing and a general idea of goals you would like to focus on.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I utilize evidence-based treatments such as CBT, ACT, DBT, as well as mindfulness.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My biggest strengths are active listening without judgment.
