Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness, will we discover the infinite power of our light.

– Brene Brown

As humans, we are born vulnerable.  Inevitably we encounter trauma, grief, shame and disillusionment and we struggle to ride the waves that life brings.  I know how much courage it takes to call a therapist and ask for help.  Some of us have carried our silent burdens for decades before we make that move. 

I honor that courage and consider the client to be the expert on their lives.   Using a person-centered approach, a collaborative plan is created based on each clients’ unique needs and goals.  I take a practical approach to healing, knowing that our bodies are equipped in incredible ways to adapt and heal. I believe in building a “toolbox” of mindfulness-based resources that promote healing and wellness. 

Although a relatively  recent graduate in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, I was born with therapists’ instincts and I have a wealth of life experience as a wife, mother of 6 and fellow traveler on the path of healing.  I am intuitive, deeply empathic, and I have personally done the work that I ask my clients to do.  I am prepared to go down into the darkness with you so that you can discover your innate light.  As an EMDR-trained therapist, I am passionate about working with clients struggling with the everyday stressors of life as well as deeper trauma, addictions, and grief. 

When I am not at work, you can find me walking with friends, doing yoga, at the library finding science books for my little guy, or shopping and cooking with my teenagers. I also like to bead earrings and find new  places in nature to explore with my family.
