Personal Statement

Do you have an irrational, gut feeling you can’t seem to shake? Maybe something telling you that you’re not good enough, unsafe, powerless…? Sometimes, difficult experiences in our past can cloud how we live in and see the present. We find ourselves overreacting to things or people, feeling anxious or worthless. Our head can tell us we are being irrational, but that doesn’t change the feeling. One of my goals is in helping you re-process the experiences in your life that push these feelings, so you not only know that you’re okay – you feel it.

Each journey is unique, so my therapeutic methods vary with the particular needs and personalities of my clients. Studies have shown that certain therapies, such as emotion-focused, mindfulness-based, EMDR, and cognitive therapies, are particularly effective in treating problems individuals or couples may face. These therapies feature heavily in my sessions.

My Approach to Helping I truly believe that healing comes from exploring and working through what “comes up” in your mental, physical, energetic, and spiritual bodies.
