Do you feel as though you would like to make changes in your life, but need help making those changes become reality? Are you tired of feeling stressed, anxious or disempowered? Are you having difficulty working through a transition? Do certain stressful experiences of the past continue to affect your ability to feel free and empowered in the present?
I provide clients with a supportive, nonjudgmental, collaborative relationship to work through these struggles together, and to find a path toward healing, growth and empowerment. There is hope in every situation, no matter how painful the present moment may be.
I specialize in trauma work using Eye Movement Desensitization Therapy (EMDR) to reprocess traumatic events of the past in a way to change the effect they have in present. Here is more information about EMDR: https://www.emdria.org/about-emdr-therapy/
I actively engage in ongoing training to support LGBTQ+ teens and adults as well as anti-racism training and monthly consultation to best be able to provide culturally competent services to clients of all racial and ethnic backgrounds.
Please call or email me to talk about what you are struggling with and whether I may be the right therapist to help. I look forward to hearing from you.
With children 3-12, I typically I use play, art and sand therapy (adding in CBT or EMDR as needed depending on client needs) to work through various areas including: trauma, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, mild levels of OCD and anger management.
I work with parents as well to provide parent support about how you can support your child's emotional well-being through strategies at home including connective activities, troubleshooting limit-setting with kids individual temperaments or struggles, helping children cope and name their big emotions, anxiety management activities and resources, troubleshooting various other areas of struggle, or processing your own areas of triggers or overwhelm separately as needed.
