I feel my heart and purpose is to walk alongside people who are hurting. I know the stigma that can accompany seeking outside help to deal with our struggles and I seek to help diffuse this stigma. Seeking help when we are in need is not a weakness, but rather a strength! My desire is to provide a supportive, safe space for you to experience healing.
I am EMDR trained to work with trauma and I am a certified Prepare/Enrich Counselor for premarital therapy. I offer short-term and long-term therapy for children, adolescents, couples, families and adult individuals. One of my passions is working with children, adolescents and their parents to help them navigate the difficult developmental stages and transitions that come with this unique season of life.
I also work with couples going through infertility, miscarriage or traumatic birth experiences. Beginning to try to expand your family is anxiety provoking for many. Experiencing miscarriage, infertility, birth trauma or difficulties postpartum can make that journey scary and painful. For many it is a silent struggle, I desire my office to be a safe space to navigate these complex emotions.
