Discovering your strength on a personal level can be intimidating, but I’m committed to bettering my clients’ lives in whatever capacity they need. From discovering your personal passions and reviving diminished confidence to helping you rebuild your identity after suffering trauma, sometimes life works better with a compassionate professional. As a trauma specialist, I combine a variety of modalities, tailoring your treatment plan to your individual needs. Trained and certified in a variety of treatment modalities, I use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and the Trauma Resiliency Model as the two main tools of practice to help my clients work through their challenges, find safety and connection within their bodies, and develop an arsenal of coping skills that can help manage symptoms that can feel debilitating. My talk therapy approach combines the powerful coping & reframing tools of cognitive behavioral therapy (both trauma-based and traditional), a psychodynamic framework to better understand attachment styles and any past experiences that still impact you today, and an existential approach to help you create the meaning within your own life that resonates and feels true to you today. If you are looking for a higher vision of life and are unclear how to get there, get ready to commit to an adventure that will open your life to new possibilities you never thought possible. As an Integrative Wellness and Life Coach, I love to inspire people to discover and experience their true purpose. Helping people achieve their highest potential is what I love most about my work. My goal is to assist you in finding your passion and true desires. Then, I’ll help you go for your goals by using targeted exercises that create lasting change. I’ll coach you to achieve your goals actively and live the powerful life you deserve.
