For a moment, consider life as a roller coaster. When you are waiting in line to ride the roller coaster, life may move slowly and peacefully. Other times, you may be thrown for a scary loop and experience difficulty hanging on or managing the various twists and curves. Similarly, life may move too fast with great force, ultimately taking your breath away. Through these valleys and peaks, I am committed to joining you for the ride, providing a safe and nurturing environment, assisting you as you set and reach goals, and being your biggest cheerleader as you create meaningful change.
We also live in a busy world full of distractions that make it difficult to slow down and listen to our true nature. Managing expectations and high demands can be overwhelming for not only your body but also your mind and emotional well-being. As your therapist, my goal is to provide a safe space where you can re-connect with yourself, develop positive coping skills, and ultimately receive the support, attention, and healing you deserve. I look forward to working with you in an atmosphere of positive growth and change. Remember, you do not have to ride the rollercoaster of life alone!
My specialty areas include helping individuals struggling with food/body image concerns, self-harm behaviors, and trauma related experiences. I also enjoy working with individuals presenting with general anxiety and depression, ADHD, career counseling concerns, stress management, and issues related to identity and coping with general life transitions. When working with clients, I focus most on the relationship while also incorporating elements of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and solutions focused therapy (SFT).
