Every person that comes to psychotherapy arrives with different reasons and circumstances. Seeking therapy requires a great deal of courage. Be proud that you have taken the first step – attempting to find a therapist. I am committed to providing a safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment in which we as a collaborative team will explore barriers to happiness and help you deal with issues that are troubling you. In my practice, I believe the therapeutic relationship is sacred, and created in partnership with each client to foster safety, compassion, patience and a sense of curiosity.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist practicing in the helping profession for over six years. I am certified in Managing and Adapting Practice (MAP), Individual Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (ICBT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), FOCUS for families, Seeking Safety, and part 1 trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR). I specialize in working with families, adolescent and adult individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, life challenges or complex trauma.
I believe the key to happiness is mindful connection to self, others, spirituality, the community, and the world. Most of us have a goal we want to accomplish, and sometimes we lose sight of those goals. We can choose to seek a compass in which to guide ourselves. I have overcome many obstacles in life, and am grateful to now be in a position to help others.
