About Me

I am an individuals therapist with 6 years of experience helping people work through some of the most difficult situations of life -trauma and abuse (including emotional, psychological in any setting), dying, loss, caregiver issues, major relationship and life transitions. Along with each of these situations come feelings of hopelessness, helplessness, depression, anxiety, rage, disempowerment, grief from the life or dreams you've lost, and often a sense of, "I'm going crazy!" From this I have developed a passion toward helping people discover their inner peace, confidence, resilience, purpose, and a robust sense of personal power. The people I've worked with have been primarily women and female gender oriented and that is where the bulk of my experience lies. That said, I welcome all genders and gender orientations who seek these developments in their lives or want to support the empowerment of others.
I take a direct (not abrasive!), supportive approach in conversation drawing primarily from the Cognitive Behavioral and Compassion Focused models as they support deep healing in a measured, sustainable yet very individualized way. I also pay particular attention to your personal understanding of spirituality as it has a profound effect on your sense of self and the world around you.
It takes a lot of strength to reach out for help to find inner healing and happiness and I'm so glad that you're doing it! Whatever darkness you are going through I promise it won't last forever. You are not crazy. You might just need someone to hear you, walk through the darkness with you, give you a few good tools, and a shine a different perspective on your life.
