I feel honored each time I am given the opportunity to accompany someone on their way to a more balanced, vibrant, and joyful life. I aim to create a sense of safety and connection in every therapy session to increase the possibility for transformation.
My work is informed by cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), positive psychology, and various mindfulness and body-based practices.
I also draw deeply on Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS), an evidenced-based therapeutic model that works to connect individuals to their deepest “Self”: the calm, centered, connected core that is the healing force present in each of us.
I enjoy working with adults in addressing a wide range of challenges including anxiety, depression, trauma symptoms, shame, low self-esteem, parenting, grief/loss, relationship issues, and chronic health conditions. I am also familiar with the needs of those who have the trait of high sensitivity.
Pain and struggle are part of life. Sometimes they can feel overwhelming and endless. My many years of personal and professional growth have taught me that deep and lasting change is indeed possible. Sometimes it’s helpful to have a trusted guide along the way. My approach is heart-centered, strength-based, and collaborative. Together we will explore the nature of your current challenges with curiosity and compassion.
I am currently in supervision as I work towards completing independent licensure requirements.
