Do you want to feel better? I can help. You intuitively know what you need to do. I can provide proven, solution-focused techniques to help you get there. I love seeing my clients go from mere survival to actively thriving: doing what they always knew they could do.
I really enjoy working with people who grew up in chaotic environments. If your parent was mentally ill or personality disordered, this often impacts your life now. I like helping people heal from this type of abuse.
I got my start working with kids in foster care. I learned from them how to sit with pain, acknowledge trauma and map out positive new strategies. I currently work with adults healing from depression, anxiety, and abuse (physical, emotional and sexual).
Blending conventional and alternative approaches, I draw on a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful for each client. I work with each client to help them build on their strengths to identify and achieve life goals. I use a non-pathologizing approach to help you identify what's working and what's not.
We all have challenges we must face, but you don't have to face them alone. It helps to have someone who's unbiased and nonjudgmental to help you get back to being you.
