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.
