It is by going down into the abyss
that we recover the treasures of life.
Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.
As your counselor, it is my intention to hold a space that inspires deep healing, courage, lasting transformation, and a wholistic abundance that is your birthright. I believe that the counseling relationship will allow you to more fully understand how life's challenges have led you to this moment, and uplift that wisdom to be an active creator in the unfoldment of your desired life's path. Through the therapeutic temenos (sacred space), you will find a place to lay down your armor, find your tenderness within, and emerge into your full authenticity. It is my hope that in our time together, you will discover your unique and healing relationship with yourself, your community, and your world, and intuitively reconnect with your authentic, inspired Self.
Using creative and holistic approaches, I encourage those I work with to tune into their natural abilities to heal from mental and emotional wounds, oppressive and harmful systems, and traumatic experiences, to explore overlooked possibilities, and to create the life they desire. As a cisgender, white, able-bodied woman, I am continually learning about my privilege in this world and I am committed to raising my consciousness around these identities and how they impact the therapeutic relationship. From a heart centered and Soul led place, I will meet you where you're at and allow you the space to explore and process life's burdens. What you seek is already within you. We will work together to find it. I can't wait to hear from you!

Our minds are so incredibly powerful! Hypnotherapy can be a dynamic tool to tap into the inherent healing and transformative abilities we already possess, through our subconscious mind. With hypnotherapy, I will assist your unconscious to accept beneficial ideas and suggestions that assist you in healing and reaching your goals. Together, along with your Highest Self, we will define what changes you are longing for. You are fully in control for the entirety of our time together.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is beneficial for a variety of concerns, including childhood trauma, inner child healing, chronic pain, a desire to stop unwanted habits, to improve confidence and performance abilities, and to improve interactions with others.

Let's face it, getting through your teens can be tough! Adolescence can be a very confusing time and teens experience tremendous pressures including learning expectations and planning for the future, environmental and political anxiety, developing healthy life habits and relationships, navigating friendships, and the influence of social media on teen identity development. More and more teens are finding themselves in a state of information overload, which can lead to depression, social isolation, anxiety, low self-esteem, and risky or unexpected behaviors. Whether you are a teen looking for counseling, or a concerned parent, I would love to help! I currently work with adolescents ages 13-18.
