Imagine a life experienced fully in which you cultivate hope and curiosity even in times of stress and adversity. Whether faced with a traumatic event, toxic stress or every day challenges this life can be yours, because deep inside of you there is an innate ability to not only survive but to heal, grow and thrive. If you have been impacted by life's challenges and have a desire to shift towards a more conscious values driven life full of meaning this is the place for you.
Sometimes we need a respectful, nonjudgemental, safe place to figure things out. Although it can be difficult to take that first step in reaching out for help, psychotherapy is an opportunity for continued growth and healing.
Trained as a Social Worker, I approach psychotherapy from a relational, strength based, person centered orientation. I tailor my approach to the individual needs of the person employing techniques from a variety of theoretical models including attachment, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness, energy, transpersonal and psycho-spiritual approaches. Each individual is unique, thus may need different ways of addressing their concerns. Figuring out what type of interventions work best is part of the therapeutic process and the development of a trusted alliance between you and me.
I enjoy integrating creative healing arts and energy interventions with traditional psychotherapy approaches to treat anxiety, depression, relationship problems and trauma. I specialize in working with individuals who have been impacted by relational and interpersonal betrayal trauma, complex developmental trauma and those who identify has Highly Sensitive People (HSP) as well as individuals who are in the helping profession including thought leaders and therapists who are pursuing their best selves.
One of the most important protective factors in any healing process is having a community of support. Group therapy is an opportunity for people who have similar concerns and issues to come together to share, to reduce isolation and to help each other realize that they are not alone. Members turn to each other for support, guidance, feedback and connection.
