Professional statement

Talk therapy alone can often fall short. Have you ever asked yourself, “Why do I find myself stuck in this cycle?!”. I get it! Consider this: Talk therapy alone cannot access the part of your mind where trauma, anxiety, and depression are stored! Perhaps you need more tools to get the freedom you seek! In addition to weekly therapy, I also offer 1, 2, or 3-day custom therapy intensives. An intensive provides tremendous traction instead of starting and stopping so frequently in weekly sessions.

I am certified in Brainspotting, a powerful method for treating trauma, anxiety, and depression. BSP helps you release negative emotions and traumatic body-based “memories”. I am also a trained Associate Partner Trauma Therapist (APTT) and I walk alongside sexually betrayed partners. I approach betrayal trauma from a place of compassion.

I am certified in grief counseling from Evergreen and have training in IFS (parts work). I understand it can take tremendous courage to reach out for help. Please do! I believe everyone deserves to live a fulfilling, confident, and authentic life.
