Profile
“I often invite people to slow down and feel their emotions; this helps to move through and heal old wounds.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I grew up fascinated by emotion and the interactions between people. When I see people, I see stories, needs, and the desire to connect. I've always been interested in that good feeling you get when you are seen and felt by another and by the warmth and goodness felt when immersed in nature's beauty. I have specialized training in couples therapy and AEDP.
What should someone know about working with you?
I often invite people to slow down and feel their emotions; this helps to move through and heal old wounds. I accompany and stay with my clients as they have the courage to face and explore difficult memories and life experiences. I provide a balance of structure and fluidity; we create this together and we are in this together.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I currently invest about 50% of my earnings back into professional development. I am working toward multiple certifications in couples and sex therapy and in AEDP (complex trauma). I love learning; I believe it makes me a better therapist and gives me a competitive edge.
