Are you going through the motions of everyday life? Are you exhausted and find yourself feeling stuck, unfocused and overwhelmed, yet completely underwhelmed? You want more out of life, or maybe you just want to feel happier or less anxious. When life hands you more than you you can handle, seeking help from a compassionate therapist may be helpful. I support a holistic approach (mind, body, soul), with emphasis in resilience building, self-compassion, and trauma recovery. Together we’ll make sense of your struggle, build self-compassion, explore inner resources, and discover how to transform difficulty into growth and vitality.

By listening for understanding and providing an environment of acceptance and warmth, I'll guide you through a process of self-awareness, growth and change. A counseling approach with emphasis on Somatic, Cognitive and Attachment theories; specifically utilizing my training in SE, IFS, EMDR and EFT, allows us to work collaboratively to promote healing, .

Reaching out for help can be scary. You’ve taken a brave step, so good for you for looking for support. We all need it so much right now. I'd love to walk alongside you and support you in living your life to the fullest. I invite you to call me. I'm happy to talk with you and explore a therapeutic approach tailored to fit your unique needs.
