Compassionate Therapy for Anxiety & Trauma

I provide solid, evidence-based practices blended with a warm, creative, and sometimes irreverent approach to healing trauma and anxiety.

If you secretly feel you don't fit in or are different from others in a way that just doesn't feel good, traumatic experiences in your past may be getting in your way and keeping you from living your authentic life.  

Let's work through those together.

Find Freedom from Your Past Traumatic childhoods, toxic relationships, generational patterns— time to heal what holds you back.

Do you find yourself...

  • Asking yourself, "Am I just “too sensitive”?
  • Wondering why you can’t just “get over it”?
  • Always feeling like an outsider and feeling alone when you are with others?
  • Stuck in your head all the time?
  • Feeling responsible for everything bad that happens?
  • Or maybe feeling like you don't understand how to live a happy, “normal” life.

Therapy can help provide answers to these questions and help you manage the accompanying emotions in ways that are healthy and sustainable.

In addition to giving you a safe space to sit with and process these emotions, I give you the tools to recognize how these things ripple through and affect your entire life, and make lasting changes that will help you finally feel like you deserve good relationships and a life that feels right.

You can learn how to understand and manage your uncomfortable feelings and develop sustainable, healthy ways of taking care of yourself. Change is possible, and you can start working towards the life you want.
