I am passionate about coming alongside clients as they seek to find comfort, peace, and healing in the midst of the many difficulties that life can bring. From the moment you walk in my office, my goal is to provide you with a place where you feel safe to work through issues at your own pace, while experiencing both comfort and understanding. I strive to create an environment where clients can feel seen and heard without experiencing shame.
In my practice I use EMDR and other trauma-informed interventions to help you gain new coping and emotional regulation skills, which I believe are vital resources to processing and finding relief from traumatic experiences. Working with the mind and body, we will also address core issues which cause distress and disruption in everyday life and relationships.
I have experience working with clients experiencing PTSD or cPTSD, anxiety attacks, family and relational struggles, chronic pain/health issues, religious or spiritual abuse, and issues related to body image and the negative impacts of diet culture.
When I am not counseling, some of my favorite things to do are curling up to read a good book, taking my sweet dog Maisie for a walk in the park, and enjoying good food and great conversations with close friends.
