Licensed Professional Counselor - LPC, LCAS, NCC
Welcome~ I am so glad you found your way here! I have spent my life learning skills that help people bounce back after trauma, relationship issues, addiction, depression, grief, and pain. It is an honor for me to create a safe, confidential space in which you can speak all of the things you’ve found impossible to say out loud.
I will listen carefully, and teach you skills and practices that will loosen the grip these painful thoughts and memories hold on your mind. This frees up space to implement new thoughts and behaviors. Together, we will create a way forward to the empowered life that you envision.
The first consultation with me is always free so that you can get a feel for how we work together before committing your money and time. I use the research-based modalities of ACT, EMDR, and Expressive Arts. In our sessions we can incorporate therapeutic movement, art making, and poetry in addition to talk therapy to access new sources of information and healing. These modalities are uniquely suited to safe exploration of trauma, abuse, addiction, and grief.
In addition to the above issues, I take great delight in helping people who feel stuck or stagnant learn skills for creating positive changes in their lives. I have a great deal of experience in helping people recover from difficult and traumatic relationships, and in helping to navigate and process the complicated role changes involved with becoming a parent or step-parent.
I am a Nationally Certified Counselor, licensed clinical addictions specialist, and licensed professional counselor. I hold a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Graduate Certificates in Expressive Arts Therapy and Addictions Counseling, and a Permaculture Design certificate.
Contact me to set up a free introductory session; if it turns out that I am not the right match for your journey, I will help you find a counselor who is.
