Thank you for visiting this site and for taking the time to learn more about me and my practice. I hope the information provided here will help you decide if we'd be a good fit.
My role as a therapist is the latest incarnation on my journey. While raising my children, I taught childbirth education classes and supported laboring and breastfeeding mothers, worked in the medical and wellness fields, and was an elementary school teacher. During my years of teaching, I earned my master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling - the final leg of a personal life goal. After completing clinical experience and working for several years at a county agency, I opened my private practice so I could best support clients to reach their own goals.
I strive to create a warm and nurturing space for those coming to therapy to talk about life's challenges as well as their triumphs. Focusing on your strengths, we will address the events, feelings, and behaviors you want to explore to help create the life you imagine. We will consistently evaluate the work we are doing, making adjustments so that you confidently develop effective and practical coping strategies and skills.
As a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist and EMDR Therapist, I am able to support clients in healing from past trauma, whether it be from a single incident or chronic exposure to traumatic and difficult circumstances.
It would be my distinct honor to walk beside you on your journey to health and wellness.
I thought I was broken and needed fixing.
I was hurting and needed healing.
A completely different concept.
