About Me

My practice foundation is an integrative approach focused on strength-based, relational, holistic, person-centered models and rooted in cultural competence and social justice. It is my core belief that therapeutically supporting people includes treating the body as a whole and giving attention to the connection between the emotional and physical self. My areas of focus include: adoption related issues, relationship difficulties, intimacy issues, infertility, anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions, identity, mindful living, and women’s issues. I am a Trust-Based Relational Intervention practitioner, am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, IFS and have also completed a post-graduate certificate from the University of Minnesota in specialized adoption and permanency competency. It is my passion to provide a supportive practice that provides safety to all individuals and families that are courageously working through life's challenges.
