Practice Description: Thank you for reviewing my page and congratulations on your step towards change. I focus on helping you with your whole-person while working on your current concerns. Finding the balance between acceptance and change is extremely challenging, especially if past methods regarding your feelings, thoughts, behaviors seemed to have helped you work through or cope with life issues. For many, managing vulnerability is scary, terrifying, and down right daunting. I will support you through each step as I believe that this is part of the change process.

When necessary, I find extreme value in putting the pieces of the puzzle together of childhood experiences and their transformations into adulthood. Growing up in a dysfunctional/alcoholic family, it is common now in adulthood, one often questions, "why do I keep finding myself feeling this way? (rejected, alone, ashamed, not good enough, afraid to be alone, etc)." Relationships may be difficult to manage, as if it feels something is missing from the equation. This is just one of the areas I specialize in. Together we will wholeheartedly put forth an effort to collaborate on a plan that will leave you feeling improved. While evaluating your needs and wants, I will support you with skill building as you experience the reward of your hard work. Transforming your survival skills into living life skills is attainable and I will help you achieve that!

In additional to the traditional therapy setting I incorporate Animal-Assisted Therapy (AAT) as well. Please visit the company website for more information:
