I am a certified Level2 trauma-informed integrated mental health Associated Professional Clinical Counselor (APCC) who specializes in working with parents and families, people navigating chronic illness and pain issues and those dealing with trauma related mental health issues. I am also getting certified in holistic, evidence based interventions such as Brainspotting and EMDR in September and October of this year to better serve my client’s trauma issues.

Often we try every solution from our “playbook” and still end up “losing the game” emotionally. We’re unable to pull ourselves out of our depression or anxiety because we are trying to escape from the issues and unable to face them or heal. Married couples blame one another, parents and kids resent one another, and society provides very little to help you through life's struggles and trauma. Come as you are with an open mind and a willing heart and we will work together to uncover the core issues keeping you "stuck" in life and relationships and create strategies and tools to develop the trauma-free life you deserve.
I am a certified Level 2 Trauma-Informed Integrated Mental Healthcare Provider. I work primarily with Internal Family Systems (IFS), Polyvagal, and Solution-Focused therapeutic interventions and also utilize Trauma-Informed, Person-Centered, Attachment, and Narrative strength-based interventions.
I provide a holistic approach to mental health by looking at how all aspects of your life integrate with your mental health to provide the best outcome possible. Counseling with me is a team experience full of creative, innovative evidence-based interventions, working side by side to identify and work together until we find the answers you are looking for.
