Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Everyone has wounded places in their hearts that could benefit from counseling. Many people at some point realize that the challenges of life are too much to manage on their own and decide to seek help from a professional that can help them navigate the challenges that life can bring at times. My work is based on helping people to heal from the wounds of the past and deal with present stressors in an environment of safety and acceptance. My passion is to provide support as they work toward fulfillment in their lives. I use an intuitive, compassionate and humorous approach to therapy. I believe that therapy can help individuals couples and families manage and overcome obstacles that interfere with healthy relationships. Obstacles such as relational issues, trauma, anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. My areas of expertise are Grief and loss, end of life issues, trauma, PTSD, medically fragile adults and children, couples and families. I have expertise in EMDR, CISM, Play Therapy, sand tray etc.
