I have helped facilitate the process of growth and healing for clients, both young and old, who struggled with grief, loss, anxiety, and transitions, just like you. I have witnessed the tenacity of the human spirit and have helped hundreds of families to live well and free of affliction. I can help you, too.
SUPPORT TAILORED – TO YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over a decade of experience counseling clients of all ages, across varied treatment settings, I have cultivated an integrated and creative approach to healing and recovery which I am able to tailor specifically to you and your unique needs.
TOXIC RELATIONSHIP RECOVERY
I am passionate about empowering women of all ages to break free of destructive or toxic relationship patterns to reclaim their lives and create the conditions needed to thrive and to feel more alive inside. I specialize in addressing relational addiction which often underlies or co-occurs with substance abuse/codependency issues, as so many struggles with discerning between addictive/toxic relationships and healthy intimacy. Underlying toxic patterns of relating of all kinds, it is important to understand how the root and core issues related to early injuries to intimacy and the lack of support in developing the needed skills to form healthy bonds. When these root issues are addressed and successfully resolved, healthy and secure connection in relationship to others becomes possible once again.
SUPPORT THAT BLENDS – SCIENCE AND THE ARTS
I bring a blend of both science and the arts, integrating scientific information with creative inspiration to address your unique needs at the level of mind, body, and spirit. In my own life, I practice the self-care tools that I teach, enjoying a dedicated practice of yoga, expressive writing, and music performance/songwriting.
I am the Mother of two spirited children, who compell me to continue to face each day with humility, hope, and self-compassion. I am inspired to help women connect to their inner wisdom and natural resilience, because I understand from my own personal experience – Recovery is an Inside Job. No one can do if for you, and it can’t be done alone. There IS a way through and out of the pain, and I can show you the path.
HEALING THROUGH CREATIVE EXPRESSION FROM THE INSIDE OUT
Much of my continued professional and personal development has been centered around holistic healing and the mind-body connection. I offer a uniquely creative experience that is tailored to you and your source of inspiration. I have a trauma-informed approach, utilizing evidenced-based modalities which target a change in both thought patterns and beliefs as well as more somatic and wisdom based tools which help you to become more connected to your emotions and your own body, regulating emotional distress and coping in more effective/adaptive ways including: yoga/mindfulness practices, expressive writing/poetry, music, and other creative/expressive arts.
