My Ideal Client

I commonly work with people who have had trauma and losses in early life, sexual trauma, and those who struggle with codependent dynamics in relationships in which healthy boundaries are not maintained. I treat adults across the lifespan, but most often work with young adults, women, and those in the helping professions such as teachers and social workers.

My Approach to Helping

I utilize various therapeutic modalities depending on the person’s needs and goals for treatment, which can include EMDR, Narrative Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and others. My goal is to help people work through whatever pain they’re experiencing so that they can live in a manner that better supports their well-being and aligns with their values. This can look like helping a person process difficult life experiences in a more effective way in order to reduce the impact to them, teaching skills to grow the person’s ability to soothe and center themselves when feeling emotionally dysregulated or disconnected, and empathically challenging negative beliefs about themselves that do not reflect the full reality of who they are and their worth.

My Values as a Therapist

I’ve learned that whatever a person’s life experiences have been, they can be experienced as a crisis or a traumatic event when it exceeds the person’s capacity to cope. It is there where I like to come alongside and help the person sort out what is needed in order to heal and move forward in their life. As a therapist, I take a strengths-based approach with clients by not only working to address the issues they are seeking treatment for, but also helping them to recognize and access their own resilience, abilities, and resources; using these to address present-day challenges that they face.

Issues I Treat


  • PTSD External link

    I am trained in and provide EMDR along with other therapies that are known to help resolve issues related to trauma. This extends beyond coping skills into work focused on resolving the root of trauma and its physiological impacts.
