She/her

I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist, & EMDR trained therapist. I specialize in treatment of complex trauma & pregnancy loss. These credentials qualify me to be a therapist but what do they mean? Some say the letters after someone’s name have become like alphabet soup. No one knows what they mean & no one really cares. So here’s a little about my counseling philosophy.

Treatment Approach

My primary framework is attachment focused. I believe humans are designed to enjoy connection with others. From before birth our bodies & brains are already making connections to significant people in our lives. We need secure loving relationships in order to function optimally. When safety is threatened & love is absent we become overwhelmed. Therapy provides an environment to share your story. It\'s more than a calming space. It\'s a nurturing relationship that allows you to feel seen, heard, and known. It may be your first safe connection.

Therapy allows you to feel valued & willing to seek other relationships. In time, hopefully you discover your voice & grow in your capacity for joy. During sessions I may use various tools to help you gain a sense of stability & peace. But, more than anything I listen deeply. I join you where you are and honor all the ways you have courageously endured.
