My Approach

While my training does allow me to work with a variety of mental health needs, I specialize in working with women and individuals suffering from trauma. My approach to counseling is collaborative as I see myself as a support along your personal journey. I find great value in meditation and mindfulness practice as well as include EMDR in my work.

My Background

I feel like my practice is the culmination of over a decade of professional experience combined with my own human experience. I work from a Mindfulness-based approach combined with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and EMDR to assist in immediate anxiety reduction and create long term habits to promote overall wellbeing.
