I believe that a compassionate, nonjudgmental atmosphere creates a foundation in which trust can allow a therapeutic relationship to develop. Each individual holds the unique capacity to transform, grow and heal.
My experience working with families began in my career as a Midwife. I was a practicing Licensed Midwife and Certified Professional Midwife for 12 years before becoming a psychotherapist. I am in awe of the power of human beings to expand, grow and transform. I have no doubt that we have all the tools we need within us.
I have a Masters in Counseling and am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with a strong interest in working with trauma, self-esteem issues and anxiety. I believe there is not one way to treat all people, and therefore have an integrative psychotherapy which combines person-centered approaches with solution-focused and mindfulness techniques. I am currently being trained in Internal Family Systems.
