What does therapy look like? 
I am an integral psychotherapist and focus on the Whole Self.  My compassionate, sensitive, and individualized approach helps you maximize your potential in your personal, social, and professional lives.  I work on building tools that help you unravel your past, recognize behavior patterns, and improve your overall well-being. My holistic approach reconnects the mind, body, and spirit, allowing you to reclaim yourself and live the life you want. Sometimes we need someone who “sees” us, understands us, and is able to partner with us in our struggles. My Advanced Trauma Training focuses on long-term holistic healing where I customize my therapy to YOU, eclectically using the many pieces of training in my therapy toolbelt - Somatics, Psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Transpersonal, and EMDR. 
It's important to feel comfortable & safe with whomever you work with. Finding a therapist requires a deep alliance & healing hinges on that therapeutic relationship. When you're struggling, that relationship becomes even more important. Sometimes it's hard to take the first step and ask for help. I honor you reaching out and moving towards wellness.
