Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I help individuals who are seeking support through a difficult life transition or are suffering from past wounding to heal and to deepen self-awareness. I specialize in the areas of recovery from alcohol addiction, trauma, grief and loss, and phase of life transitions. I provide a safe environment where one can heal, make positive changes and reach goals. With over 5 years experience in a clinical setting under supervision and private practice I draw from several modalities including Humanistic-Experential, CBT, Psychodynamic and Narrative therapy to match treatment to the person. I use Mindfulness techniques to improve awareness of feelings and well being that facilitate change, self-healing and personal growth.
