While our thoughts influence our actions, they don’t control our actions. We don’t always consider this dynamic when we feel stuck and uncertain of how to move forward in life. If you've ever wondered if there's more to life, then I am here to assist you in discovering what's important to you, while cultivating greater self-awareness. Often it's our interpretations of what we experience that is the cause of our distress and suffering. From a mindfulness-based, acceptance and commitment approach, learn how to become open to what is present in your life, while being a willing participant to do what matters.

I have 12 years of experience utilizing various therapeutic approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy. I have extensive experience working with Military Veterans and Animal-Assisted Therapy.

After a decade of clinical experience, I believe therapeutic experiences can be the key that helps clients unlock desired changes. If you know that change is needed in your life, then let's get to work on moving you in the direction of the person you wish to become.

I specialize in trauma and PTSD, depression and anxiety, and addictions. I'm a real human, and I'll treat you like one, too. You'll probably cry a bit, laugh a bit more, and feel heard and understood along the way. You'll leave therapy more equipped to manage the vortex that life can throw at you.

I am certified in EMDR, a multi-purposeful therapy especially useful in helping people overcome the negative effects of trauma. Also helpful in the management of tough feelings and addictive behaviors, EMDR is one of the most evidence-based therapies counselors have to offer. I also utilize traditional and effective talk therapy.

The time we spend together is a time for safety, acceptance, and understanding. It is your time to be heard and validated. At the center of my practice is my strong belief that we are all doing the best we can with the tools we have, and there are times that every single one of us needs a friend, a supporter, and a shoulder to cry on.

It takes courage and strength to recognize those moments when you need help. In our time together, my focus will be on supporting you to use the skills and knowledge that you already have to create meaningful and lasting change.

Welcome! I believe that one of the most important components to good therapy is a safe, attuned environment in which you can receive strategic support in hearing your own voice. Often, we dismiss our voice or intuition. Therapy can be a place to allow our true emotions to be expressed, enabling us to hear what we may not be listening to in our everyday life. Together, we will uncover the often unspoken and align with your true values.

My motto in therapy, and in life, is "whatever works!" What works for us in certain times of our lives no longer continues to works, and we need to shift gears. I'm casual and transparent with my clients. I believe that the relationship between client and therapist is the most critical part of therapy. If there isn't a connection, it won't work. I will always let you know if believe we aren't a good fit, or if I believe someone else would be better suited to helping you with your particular struggles.

I've had quite a unique life and believe that this is part of what enables me to relate to almost anyone. I am straightforward and honest - not something everyone wants or likes! I will work as hard as you will and be as committed to making changes as you are!

I have over 12 years experience working with trauma, anxiety, depression, and interpersonal relationships. I believe everyone already has the wisdom inside to heal but sometimes layers of trauma or pain can make it difficult to do so resulting often in uncomfortable symptoms such as anxiety and depression. I work with you on processing traumas that can block the feeling of safety, content and happiness inside. I am trained in EMDR (an evidence based trauma therapy tool) that is used to process and heal traumas so that the system can rest and no longer have to fight to protect against the pain and fear and emotions.
I am also a licensed addiction counselor and work with people to find the roots of their addictions and other ways to cope and find addiction often stems from unhealed traumas. I prefer working with people in recovery once they have achieved sobriety and are ready to work on the root causes of addiction. I work with both and adults and teens 14+.
I am here to help support you through this process of healing by creating a safe warm relationship so you feel comfortable in therapy and feel safe enough to heal. I use the combination of a holistic/mindfulness approach encompassing the mind/body/spirit and also an evidence based- scientific approach to healing in order to get the best results possible.
