What is at the foundation of relationship, the way in which we relate to the world? To me, I believe relationship begins with ourselves. When you feel safe and secure within yourself, you are able to connect and relate to others in a way that feels natural. There are many things that can come between us and our sense of safety, harmony, and connectedness: traumatic experiences, negative beliefs that we have learned about ourselves and the world around us, and much more. This is where I feel that I can be of service to you. It is my goal to address these obstacles that are getting in the way of you living your fullest life, a life more presently connected, and work through these obstacles collaboratively.
I come to the world of counseling with a background in business, real estate, and property management. I changed my career path after 10 years of working in a field that did not feel fulfilling or rewarding. This experience has given me first-hand experience with the stress, anxiety, and doubt that surrounds finding one’s life purpose. I have dedicated my practice to helping others live more whole and fulfilling lives.
I have worked in diverse settings ranging from career counselor at a university, to mental health counselor at a psychiatric hospital, to trauma therapist at a group practice specializing in first responders, veterans, and their families. I have worked with a wide variety of topics, such as: individuals undecided in their life's path; those needing assistance with more career technical skills (i.e., resume and cover letter development/critique, job seeking strategies, interview preparation, and translating job skills to different career paths); and mental health concerns such as: trauma, anxiety, depression, identity issues, self-esteem, relationship issues and so on.
My approach when working with both individuals and couples is relational and client-centered. I utilize cognitive and somatic principles in session, and believe that therapy should consist of the mind, body, and relationship. I like to pull tools and techniques from other therapies such as: Nonviolent Communication, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Imago therapy, and Internal Family Systems. I am also trained in EMDR therapy.
When I’m not seeing clients, I like to spend time with my four dogs and one cat, read, cook, go on long walks, and listen to live music.
