The Importance of You

Counseling for Your Needs…

In my practice, I offer a variety of services tailored to your specific needs.  I recognize each individual has their own unique struggles and it’s a big step to have a deep conversation with a professional.

I work with acute and complex traumas, with the understanding trauma is truly in the eye of the beholder.  Trauma can be overwhelming.  We can find ourselves stuck in the same patterns.  Sometimes we may even feel trapped in our own bodies or frozen in fear.  Bad memories can refuse to shrink or fade.  You may find yourself coping in ways that just make things worse.  I have worked with individuals who have endured childhood abuse/neglect, sexual assault, medical trauma, trauma from being a first responder, and traumatic loss.

Relationships are complex and can be frustrating.  Everyone desires for connection and the feeling of love.  Perhaps, you don’t feel attached to your child or are struggling being a parent.  Maybe you continue to find yourself at odds with your own family, or you continue to find yourself in unhealthy relationship patterns but feel stuck in finding a genuine connection.  I would be happy to be a guide in navigating these difficult relationships through an attachment focused lens.

I work with individuals to support their own unique journey while challenging them to confront what is holding them back from being fully involved in their own life.  Talking about problems confidentially to someone who cares can give new hope and direction.  I am humbled by providing compassionate exploration.  Developing a true sense of connection and love for oneself is the origin of healing.

“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.”


Mental Health Expert

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects our daily life, the choices we make, how we interact with others, and how we view/feel about ourselves. When we’re not healthy mentally it can be difficult to feel we deserve to enjoy good things or to feel joy. It can be a challenge to take risks and to try new things. And it can interfere with finding meaningful connection with ourselves and others.

Perinatal Mental Health

Being a parent is one of our greatest joys in life but can feel bewildering and thankless. Perinatal mental health is often looked over. Research shows many women struggle with post-partum depression/ anxiety but don’t receive treatment. Perhaps your childhood trauma feels as though it’s taking control during pregnancy or when your child comes to the same age as your traumatic event.  Or maybe you experienced a traumatic pregnancy/delivery.  This can greatly impact how you experience your first few months to years with your child. It is in our neurobiology to seek connection with our children. I work with women and men who are trying to navigate a difficult pregnancy, attachment disruption with their children, and trauma from pregnancy.

Trauma Specialist

As a certified trauma specialist, I work with acute (single incident) and complex (repeated incidents) forms of trauma. Using eclectic, holistic, and traditional therapeutic approaches I help empower individuals to facilitate their return to health and wholeness. Trauma and attachment issues prevent people from fully engaging in their own lives and relationships with others and themselves. In my practice, I focus on bridging the mind and body by using attachment neurobiology, breath work skills, and somatic (body) resourcing. This allows individuals to effectively face frightening material while feeling grounded and supported.
