Have you found that sometimes the world around you just doesn’t make sense anymore? Are you experiencing problems in your relationships, difficulty regulating your emotions, the effects of past or present trauma? Are you feeling anxious, depressed, disconnected, stuck, unable to move forward? Do you want to discover the true, authentic you? If this sounds familiar, I want you to know you’re not alone and there is a light at the end of the tunnel!
Therapy is a collaborative journey; after all, there is no better expert on you than you! My purpose and passion is to help you gain a better understanding of yourself and your experiences while providing you the tools to improve your well-being. I am a firm believer that the true therapeutic process happens every day outside of therapy, where you do the work using those tools, building skills, and applying what you’ve learned to your daily life. I've worked with teens in various settings and situations for over ten years, addressing such issues as life transitions, relationships, experiences in the foster care arena, trauma, and identity, including navigating LGBTQ issues arising within families and school settings.
‘Therapist’ is just one of many roles in my life. I am also a mother, partner, friend, life-long learner, and client. I work with adolescents and adults, individually or as a couple/family. My approach is holistic and utilizes various techniques including CBT, DBT, Schema Therapy, Solution-Focused, and positive psychology to help you achieve your goals in all 8 dimensions of wellness…
I welcome you to Embrace Wellness and look forward to walking the path to well-being by your side!
