Helping you to Thrive!

 
Welcome!

I am passionate about new therapies that use your body’s innate wisdom to heal your mind and restore your spirit. As areas of tension in your mind and body find ease, you can become lighter, more peaceful, and open to your true spirited and spiritual nature. Treatment methods such as EMDR Therapy, Brainspotting, and CRM give attention to stored memories, feelings, and sensations, and gently restore your resiliency to the rhythms of life.

Services

I love the diversity of human life and enjoy working with people of all ages. I work primarily with individuals (adults and children) and couples who have experienced various forms of trauma.

 

Individual Therapy

I offer a combination of EMDR, Brainspotting, and somatic therapy to treat symptoms of anxiety, depression, complex trauma, PTSD, bi-polar disorder, addiction, grief, some chronic physical pain, performance blocks, and spiritual disconnection. I also teach Mindfulness skills, Resource Tapping, and use art therapy techniques.

Couples Therapy

I have received introductory training in Emotionally-focused therapy, an evidence-based therapy. Research shows this to be the most effective form of therapy for couples.

In working with children, I use their interests as the basis for interventions. We explore the child’s experience through play, art and sandplay.

What to Expect

Your first session is an opportunity for you to get to know me, share the concerns bringing to you to therapy at this time, and explore your goals for therapy. I will provide information on confidentiality and answer any questions you have about the process of therapy. After we talk about your concerns, I will share information on therapies that I will believe will be most effective to help you reach your goals. I will ask about your history and current experiences connected with your concerns. We will create a plan together based on what you have chosen to share with me. Depending on your history, you may decide to start coming to weekly counseling sessions. As you find ease from your concerns, sessions will become less frequent.
