My specialties:

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELLING

Generally I meet with my clients once per week initially to discover your goals and create a plan together for moving forward to achieve a life that you would love to live!

PARENTING DIFFICULTIES

Being a parent is very difficult! Learning ways to regulate your own emotions so that you an support your child(ren) is an essential task in therapy.  I am trained in the Incredible Years Parenting protocol as well as Theraplay. 

CULTURAL, GENDER & SEXUALITY ISSUES

I will not judge you! I love working with people who have struggled to find their tribe.  I am happy to walk with you through the journey toward your healthiest and best self. 

STRESS & TRAUMA

Stress is a current situation; whereas, trauma is a strong stress response to a historical situation.  I utilize Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Prolonged Exposure to effectively treat both issues. 

ANXIETY 

Anxiety can cause your mind to race, feelings of irritability, feeling like you can't slow down, and feeling overwhelmed.  Utilizing mindfulness and exposure-based techniques I can help you regain control.

EATING DISORDER/BODY IMAGE

If you struggle in this arena, I use Dialectical Behavioral Therapy as a treatment to address disordered eating behaviors. There is hope that you can regain a healthier relationship with your body and food. 

DEPRESSION

Feeling alone, unmotivated and lethargic will takes it's toll on anyone.  Therapy will help you to identify patterns and links in your days that we can problem solve and work to climb out of the pit of despair.

DIALECTICAL BEHAVIORAL THERAPY

I am a fully adherent DBT therapist, offering the full evidence-based model. Please click the DBT tab for more detailed information.

I am honored to be a lighthouse in the storms of life; offering support and hope to my clients.  I am a passionate and creative person who and helping others brings me great joy.  I strive to be authentic in all I do and believe that comes across in my work. We are very passionate about helping those who are "othered" and are struggling with the stresses of being themselves in a world that doesn't always accept them.

I fully believe: 

YOU ARE LOVED.

YOU ARE WORTHY

YOU ARE CAPABLE.

As many of you likely do, I hold many identities.
