Description

You’ve spent a lot of your life just “getting through it”. Despite a lot of difficulties in your childhood, and even your early adult life, you’ve managed to bulldoze through it all and stay on track as much as you could. But now that you’re through it (at least mostly), your past seems to be catching up to you. Your relationships with significant others, friends, family and even yourself seem to be challenging. You’re realizing now that maybe “just getting through it” wasn’t enough, and it is time to get some support for yourself, whether you really want to or not. Slowing down is really difficult, but it's time.

As both a child- and adult-trained therapist, I have a unique understanding of how traumas and patterns within families can impact both the individual and the family as a whole. I have been trained to address these issues in family therapy and in individual sessions with tweens, adolescents and adult utilizing a variety of methods; including Internal Family Systems, AEDP, and Trauma-Art Narrative Therapy.

I have a passion for creating a safe space for those who are unfamiliar with exploring some of the seemingly scarier parts of themselves; anxiety, anger, depression, and even self-harm. Every part of you deserves to be seen and heard. I am always looking to help create a space for clients where more in-depth and connected exploration can occur, so true healing can begin to happen.

This can feel scary to take on alone, and you shouldn’t have to. I can support you in looking at your own history, as well as your family history, to address ways that you can untether yourself from your past, find healing, and move forward more freely. Call me today for a free initial phone consultation to see if we may be a good fit to work together.
