NOT accepting new clients at this time.
I specialize in helping clients restore balance to their lives through healing past painful events or relational injuries that repeatedly trigger internal conflict, over-reactivity, and self-sabotaging thoughts and behavior patterns. Many people underestimate the impact that family-of-origin relationships have had on their current perception of self and others. I help clients identify and reprocess past painful experiences underlying current issues so that they can experience more presence, joy, and compassion in their life.
I also enjoy working with individuals seeking to improve their relationship skills. Oftentimes, it's the wounds of the past that push the emotional buttons triggered in relationships. My experience with healing emotional memories helps clients to apply relationship skills with more ease. I have training in both the Gottman Method and Relational Life Therapy to provide education and guidance in using communication and relational skills that are integral to healthy relationships.
Trauma-informed Counseling for Adults 25yo and older..
Intensive Trauma Treatment
Bi-weekly extended sessions
I'm available to work with you intensively with extended sessions (90-120 mins) up to twice per week. Unfortunately, insurance doesn't pay for intensive trauma treatment. However, working with extended sessions can be a more efficient and effective way to work as more time is spent in processing trauma versus setting up and closing the session. If you are interested in this option, please contact me.
Fees and Insurance
Insurances accepted: BCBS, Cigna, United Health Care/UBH/Optum, and Medcost.
