It has been in my heart to be a therapist ever since I was young. I truly find purpose in helping others and improving your quality of life. This is why I added to my practice with Yoga. I want to ensure that I have the tools to help you reach your goals.

If you are open and willing, you can make a change. The biggest reason I see people not moving forward with change is that facing trauma is extremely uncomfortable, and who can blame them. With me, I use Cognitive Processing Therapy. This means we don't go into detail about your trauma unless you want to. Our main goal is to figure out what is keeping you stuck, and help you get unstuck.

I think working as a team is the most important thing. I am not going to make you do anything you don't want to do. I may make suggestions you disagree with, and that's okay. This is your treatment and my goal is to give you the tools and challenge you to reach your goals. We are looking for small changes, as most change does not happen overnight. I have confidence that you can make that change.
