Healing doesn't mean the damage never existed- it means the damage no longer controls our lives.
Every person should be honored as the expert of their own experience. As such, I believe that you deserve a safe and respectful space to work through the experiences that separate you from a sense of peace or the life you want. Unique strengths and a sense of resiliency are intrinsic in each person, and I see therapy as a profoundly beneficial tool for uncovering individualized keys to healing, self-discovery, and personal growth regardless of where you may be on your wellness journey.
Prior to my work as a therapist, I spent many years working in funeral homes helping the bereaved honor the lives of their loved ones. Since becoming a therapist, I have worked in disaster services with survivors, where I was trained in psychological first aid and disaster mental health. Other experience includes counseling with university students using a variety of modalities, including CBT and Motivational Interviewing. Additionally, I am trained in EMDR and have experience implementing the modality with grief, traumatic incidents, sexual abuse, and PTSD.
