Compassionate Support on Your Healing Journey
We all deserve to heal, to find meaning in our lives, and to have healthy, fulfilling relationships with ourselves, others, and the world around us. I am honored to join my clients on their path to healing, as they bring courage, insight, and determination to our work together.
The Therapeutic Process
Clients I work with are often in therapy because they are overwhelmed by worry, stress, and sadness. My counseling services are based on the belief that you are the expert on your life and that you have the potential to heal. I believe that healing and happiness are achieved through processing difficult or painful experiences and feelings in a safe, supportive environment. I look forward to speaking with potential clients as you begin your healing journey!

Evidence Based Interventions Adapted to Individual Client Needs
“We don't have to do all of it alone.
We were never meant to.”

Healing with Nature
Ecotherapies are a wellness and healing path that I often practice. While spending time outdoors can be beneficial for most people, outdoor sessions may look very similar to indoor sessions, or they may incorporate a variety of ways of connecting to nature. Ecotherapies are a diverse group of interventions based on the therapeutic benefits of developing our connection to the natural world. I value the beautiful experience of facilitating my clients' connection to nature and healing work in natural settings.
Treatment for Trauma, Anxiety, and more
EMDR is an approach to understanding and healing trauma that is evidence based, effective, and integrates well with other healing approaches and interventions. EMDR certification was a priority for me as I saw the need for a trauma informed approach, and saw the transformative power of EMDR first hand. Integrating EMDR and ecotherapies can be particularly beneficial.
