A Little About Me

You're not sure why you've been feeling so overwhelmed and down on yourself because you've worked hard to get where you are now. You're a rock for many people in your life, yet it feels so hard to find help when you need it. If you're struggling in your relationships, emotions feel out of control, or maybe your gut just is telling you that something is off, I'm here to help you create movement in your life. You've taken an important step already by beginning to look for help.

After working with me, my clients report feeling more empowered, calm, self-aware, and able to express their own limits and needs. They know what tools and resources are available to them, both internal and external, and how to use them. I specialize in working with self-identified people-pleasers, adult children of alcoholics, and trauma survivors. My approach is always mindful and collaborative, and I believe that you are the expert on your own life. In sessions this looks like focusing on your present moment awareness of what's happening and exploring connections to the past. The strategies I utilize in therapy are evidence-based and informed by the neurobiology of trauma and attachment.
