Welcome~ I am so glad you found your way here!
I have spent my life learning skills that help people bounce back after trauma, relationship issues, addiction, depression, grief, and pain. It is an honor for me to create a safe, confidential space in which you can speak all of the things you've been afraid to tell anyone. I will listen carefully, and teach you skills and practices that will loosen the grip these painful thoughts and memories hold on your mind. This frees up space to implement new thoughts and behaviors that are more in line with who you want to be as a person. Together, we will create a way forward to the meaningful, empowered life that you envision.
I know that it is incredibly difficult to speak with a complete stranger about what is weighing on your heart and mind. I will do everything I can to ensure that you feel safe and heard. The first consultation with me is always free so that you can get a feel for how we work together before committing your money and time.
I use the research-based modalities of ACT and Expressive Arts. In our sessions we can incorporate therapeutic movement and art-making in addition to talk therapy to access new sources of information and healing. This modality is uniquely suited to safe exploration of trauma, abuse, addiction, and grief.
I am also trained in EMDR, a modality that is empirically effective in resolving single-incident traumas.
Healing is an inward journey, but it thrives in community. My practice also offers workshops, retreats, and classes for those who prefer to learn, laugh, and heal in community. You can see our current offerings here.
I am a Nationally Certified Counselor, a licensed clinical addictions specialist, and a licensed professional counselor. I hold a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Graduate Certificates in Expressive Arts Therapy and Addictions Counseling, and a Permaculture Design certificate.
