In order for therapy to work well, it is important to feel comfortable and accepted as you are. As a therapist it is my goal to make sure that happens, so we can work on addressing the things in life that are leaving you feeling stuck, angry, confused or even hopeless. I utilize a person centered, trauma focused and existential approach. Essentially this means, I believe you are the expert in your life and you determine what you need out of therapy. My role is to be a helpful, caring guide in that process. Secondly, I am trained and experienced in supporting people affected by trauma and will be mindful of your history, while working towards helping you live more fully and freely despite what life has brought your way. Lastly, I believe it is important to find meaning in life in order to find hope and fulfillment. I am passionate about working with adults who are facing past or present trauma with a special interest in serving those who have experienced spiritual/religious trauma. My other areas of focus are: anxiety, life transitions, stress/burn out, self-esteem, family issues, and grief.
