About me

For more than two decades I have had the honor of helping people across the lifespan
overcome trauma, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, chronic stress, emotional overwhelm, and unresolved relationship and attachment wounds.

I work to create a therapeutic space that is open, warm, accepting and engaging. I see our work together as a collaboration that is solution-oriented and empowering. When symptoms begin to subside I have observed many people begin to see themselves with more self-compassion, have more energy, can focus on achieving their goals and experience healthier, more fulfilling relationships.

The therapeutic approaches used are evidence-based and trauma informed to both reduce distressing symptoms and resolve their underlying causes.

Approaches include:
- EMDR (focuses on trauma resolution and many other conditions)
- Mindfulness-based-CBT (anxiety, panic attacks, fears, trauma, stress, depression)
- Somatic therapy (trauma, anxiety, panic attacks, chronic pain)
- Self-Compassion Focus (depression, overcoming criticism/narcissistic parent, relationship/attachment wounds, shame, anger, self-sabotage)
- The Flash Technique (trauma focus, reducing distressing emotions/triggers)
- Emotional Freedom Technique (stuck emotions and body-based symptoms)

When working with children play and sand tray therapy are utilized and help children to work through their emotions and experiences, build confidence and improve family and peer relationships. Parent therapy sessions are part of the therapy and many parents have reported feeling more confident in their parenting and that their relationship with their child had improved.

It would be a privilege to participate in a small part of your story. I encourage you to reach out to book a free exploratory consultation to see if we are a good match for you or your child's needs.
