Life is challenging at times and finding support through life’s difficulties can be helpful.
My life’s calling is to assist others in managing their stress, overcoming trauma and working towards their wellness goals. You are the expert of your life. Counseling is a collaborative process where we both come to the table with our strengths in order to help you on your journey.
TYPES OF TREATMENT
EMDR is a simple, non-invasive patient-therapist collaboration in which healing can happen effectively. This powerful short-term therapy is highly effective for a wide range of disorders including chronic pain, phobias, depression, panic attacks, eating disorders and poor self-image, stress, worry, stage fright, performance anxiety, recovery from sexual abuse and traumatic incidents.
I have extensive history working with children and families and have taken many play therapy trainings. I am passionate about helping kids be confident and successful in their unique family setting.
Most therapy sessions include some form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help you understand how your thoughts, feelings, actions and self believes are all connected. As a strengths based therapist, I will help you understand and use your internal and external strengths and resources. I also offer teaching in mindfulness, guided meditation, and gentle movements if that is suitable for you. Above all, I am guided by you in your treatment.
I offer couples counseling for individuals in monogamous, open or polyamorous relationships.
I accept several insurance providers in addition to private payments. I offer sliding scale if I am not in network with your insurance. Your copay or private payment in full is due at the time of service. I accept cash (exact, please), check, and credit card payments made through Square.
