CONNECT ・ HEAL ・ THRIVE
MY APPROACH TO THERAPY:
I believe that a positive client/therapist relationship is the foundation of success in therapy. I strive to create a therapeutic space where you will feel seen, heard, and validated. My style of therapy is based on genuineness, humor, and creativity and I utilize techniques such as journaling, creating artwork, outdoor walks and mindfulness, in conjunction with traditional talk therapy. I work alongside you to help you heal from past trauma, limiting beliefs and negative patterns, so you can feel less stressed, more confident and have a deeper connection with yourself and others.
I specialize in working with individual adults who are struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and relationships, among many other issues. I am a LGBTQIA+ and neurodivergent affirming therapist and strive to help individuals find the courage to be their most authentic selves.
I am Master trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy, which is an evidence based form of psychotherapy with roots in EMDR, exposure therapy, gestalt and CBT. This eye movement therapy guides clients beyond the place where they are stuck. The end result is that traumas and difficult life events no longer trigger strong emotions or physical reactions.
