About Me

I value the therapeutic process and relationship and make certain that each client feels heard and understood. I believe that each client is an individual and, as such, will receive customized treatment. I do not view a client as a diagnosis to be managed but as a person with hopes, dreams, goals and limitless potential to be explored. I am committed to a client's personal growth and self-discovery. My goal is always to partner with clients to help them know themselves, their needs, and help them learn healthy ways to get those needs met. ​ My advanced training in trauma has provided me the tools to work with clients struggling with past and current events that have overwhelmed their ability to cope effectively. I utilize a number of modalities to support clients as they work to resolve the blockages that hold them back from happiness. ​ I have a deep appreciation and extensive experience working with highly sensitive and introverted clients. I understand their unique needs and work with them to manage the intensity of their emotions and embrace their many gifts. ​ Working in schools for over 20 years as a teacher, counselor and administrator has helped me understand the pressures, stress and needs of educators. I am passionate in my work with education professionals and strive to provide them a space to explore their feelings and needs while helping them find a meaningful work/life balance. ​ I employ a humanistic approach to therapy which focuses on a person's individual nature and emphasizes a client's ability to use his/her personal instincts to find wisdom, growth, and fulfillment within him/herself. Additionally, I draw from Attachment and Sensorimotor theories that utilize a holistic and neurobiological approach to healing, and thus utilize yoga, meditation and other mindfulness based techniques when appropriate.
