About Me

Empathetic Licensed Mental Health Counselor focused on helping you or your teen heal from trauma or life's stressors. My passion is helping clients discover skills to manage anxiety, challenge thought traps, question negative thinking patterns, explore self-identity, and reduce depressive states through processing emotions, learning mindfulness, and implementing healthy coping skills. If feeling frustrated in the past/present/future worries, we can explore EMDR together to allow the brain to heal naturally. We can create goals, big or small, to uncover strengths and reduce feelings of being stuck. I also like to bring breathwork, grounding techniques, movement, and art into sessions to build a sense of calm and create peace. I am certified in Trauma Focused CBT, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Trauma Informed Yoga. I use an empathetic strength based approach with foundations in CBT, EMDR, and Motivational Interviewing. I can assist in learning how to express emotions, communicate, practice self-acceptance, and learn to make changes to promote a sense of clarity and ease.
