My desire is to see individuals who are hurting and hopeless discover a life that is full of joy and peace. My approach is client-centered and collaborative, as I join with my clients to bring healing into their lives. I respect the courage it takes to begin this journey of restoration, and work hard to provide an environment where true change can occur.
My specialties are in trauma, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationship, and spiritual issues. I am Level 2 certified in Restoration Therapy, and have completed basic training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I love to incorporate attachment theory, neuroscience principles, and mindfulness practices in my work. I also have advanced training in pastoral counseling and spiritual formation. Finally, I have traveled extensively and have lived in Latin America, creating in me a passion for cultural sensitivity and awareness. These experiences, theories, and paradigms greatly inform my work; however, my goal is to tailor every session to the specific needs of each client.
