Taking the first step is always the hardest! Let’s walk and discover a new path together. I have worked with various issues such as anxiety, depression, grief, loss, trauma, panic and adjustment to life issues and chronic illness, and caregiver support. I have successfully treated children and teens with a range of emotional and behavioral issues. I have worked on parenting issues, ADHD, attachment concerns, difficulties adjusting and emotional coping difficulties. I have treated PTSD and adult survivors of abuse.

I take a relational and psychodynamic approach to counseling. We will explore together what symptoms you are experiencing and how this is impacting your life, your body and health, and your relationships. We will explore your coping style and work to build on this. We will discover what your values are and what barriers are standing between you and the new way you wish to approach life. We will explore healthy choices that will further your growth and success. My goal is to tailor my interventions to your specific needs.

I have a special interest in working with survivors of trauma and have received additional trainings for PTSD and resiliency. I have a background in the expressive arts and enjoy incorporating this into my practice. I also utilize mindfulness with an understanding of how the mind and body work together on issues incorporating the neuroscientific theory. I believe that the more you know and understand yourself, the better equipped you will be to make your own powerful and lasting changes and to find your path of joy and happiness.
