I view the healing journey as a pathway to freedom.
My goal in therapy is to provide a compassionate and safe space for you to reclaim your power and break free from negative beliefs that are no longer serving you. The active choice to seek help in that process takes great strength. My therapeutic approach involves identifying and building upon that strength in order to restore hope and empowerment in your life. I work with adult individuals, women, and teens who are seeking to gain freedom from shame and isolation with the goal of achieving a more fulfilling, authentic, and connected life.
I operate from a trauma-informed, strengths-based perspective that is highly individualized to attend to your specific needs. I believe that there is no one-size-fits-all approach; no one else has lived your life, which makes you the best expert on you. My role in this process involves helping you activate your innate self-awareness and develop a healthy, loving relationship with your true self. I view therapy as a shared journey that allows us to work together to heal wounded parts at your own pace and comfort level, and I consider it an honor and a privilege to hold that space for your healing.
I received my Master of Arts in Counseling with an emphasis in the Treatment of Trauma, Abuse, and Deprivation from Ottawa University. I am a Licensed Associate Counselor currently pursuing independent licensure under the supervision of Charise Schwertfeger, LMFT (LMFT-15133). I am also pursuing additional trauma training in the form of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).
I offer free 15 minute phone consultations should you have any questions for me before our first meeting. I look forward to connecting with you!
