Specialty: Trauma and PTSD, Codependency, Dissociative Disorders, Social Worker, Therapist

I'm accepting clients struggling with symptoms of anxiety and depression. Symptoms of anxiety and depression can stem from issues with grief, divorce, trauma, genetics and day to day stress. I enjoy seeing clients discover their inner strength and develop tools to become empowered in their lives. Life isn't always easy, but you don't have to go it alone. I specialize in helping clients process traumatic events. If you are struggling with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder or depression due to traumatic events that have happened in your life, I can help you without having to relive the trauma. If distressing memories control how you interact with other people and live your life, call me. I am a Certified Trauma Therapist.

Specialty: Mood Disorders, Trauma and PTSD, Counseling, Social Worker

I believe that it is important to focus not only on mental health, but on the whole person. No one part of our being survives alone. All parts play significant roles, including physical, emotional and spiritual elements. I believe that we all have an innate ability to follow our intuition and achieve what we want in our lives. Often, we need to relearn to trust our intuition because life experiences have convinced us to fight against what we know to be best for us. My passion is helping others to relearn this balance to make the best out of life. I have a strong passion for working with trauma survivors, those struggling with depression and anxiety, those with difficulty regulating their emotions, and struggling with their identity or sense of self, including sexuality and gender identity. My approach is multidimensional and based on each clients needs. I believe therapy is an important piece to the puzzle. I also help my clients explore alternative treatment approaches that may assist in healing. There is a lot of great stuff out there! I think these are just as important in achieving the best possible outcome!

Specialty: Addiction, Depression, Anxiety, Counseling, Social Worker

My goal is to offer a safe, confidential space where people feel supported in their work toward positive change and healing. The therapeutic relationship can be a wonderful asset and I feel honored when other's choose to share their stories with me. I believe therapy is beneficial whether it is short or long term and should be client-centered and collaborative. I have experience working with a variety of issues and specialize in substance use. My approach is also to adapt the therapy experience to each client's individual needs by utilizing therapeutic interventions from multiple theories.
