Making the decision to reach out for therapy can be so difficult, but having the courage to do so can be absolutely life changing! You deserve to make sense of your story and to live well. There is such value in having a therapist that you connect with- someone to help you build insight, find clarity, and pursue healing in a holistic way. I use an integrative approach, specifically including Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Internal Family Systems, Motivational Interviewing, Person Centered, and Strengths based modalities to help my clients meet their treatment goals.
