Find your path to thriving


Hello fellow traveler!

All of us have times when our problems seem to overwhelm us, affecting relationships at home and at work, our friendships, and our love relationships. Are you feeling irritable, having difficulty sleeping or focusing, experiencing mood swings or angry outbursts? You may experience intense and disturbing recurring memories. Or you may find you are avoiding places, people, or events. These things keep us from living the kind of rewarding life we really want; they keep us from thriving. My goal is to help each person I work with feel better by helping them find their own path to their thriving life.

My specialty is working with people who have overwhelming stress, unresolved trauma, or grief that may be complicated by depression and anxiety. Within an Adlerian framework, I use EMDR, CBT, IFS, and mindfulness methods. I help my clients find tools for current relief and tools they can use going forward. And I help each client uncover their compassionate core self.

Together we create a working environment of acceptance, hope, and healing where insight grows and new options can be explored safely. Call or email today and let's talk about how you can find your path to thriving.
