Hello and what a pleasure to meet you. I first trained in Respiratory Therapy and was also a Victim Advocate, which gives me insight into treating trauma and Compassion Fatigue in these fields. I also specialize in Depression, Anxiety, Mood Disorders, Trauma, Chronic Pain, Chronic Illness issues, Medical Trauma, Stress, addictions, and Substance Abuse/Addiction. I will treat you as the "whole" person you are through valid therapy modalities as well as offering information, and ideas, regarding nutrition, supplements, and other holistic therapeutic counseling options. I follow a philosophy that you are the expert in your life and I am but a guide. I treat each client according to his/her preferences focusing on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, Humanistic, and Person Centered approaches. I have also trained in Internal Family Systems, Compassion Fatigue, Trauma using EMDR, Integrative Mental Health, and much more. I am your guide, your partner, in your journey to gain clarity facing the struggles of stress, illness, emotional/behavioral issues, addiction, relationships, trauma, life change, or everyday life. When you are ready to begin the journey towards balance you will be greeted by a non-judgmental and holistic/integrated approach to help you move forward in your journey. Explore what integrating your mental health, body and mind can offer for happiness, meeting goals, and healing. While your struggle is REAL, your life does not have to be a REAL STRUGGLE!

I’ve been in psychotherapy in some form for over 8 years with various practitioners in multiple states. Livia’s approach to psychotherapy is by far the most resonant and effective I’ve seen, and the breadth of her expertise is incredibly impressive. I can’t recommend her support enough for individuals who have experienced trauma.
