You were made to be loved. And in the context of a warm, accepting, and empathic therapeutic relationship, you can experience that as true.
I believe you matter: your story matters, your voice matters, and your healing matters. I deeply care about your pain and will proudly partner with you as we search your life for meaning and hidden wisdom. Together we’ll listen to your stories with courage and curiosity.
Our bodies carry our stories of pain and triumph, and I’ll help you learn to listen to yours with great care. Trauma work is grief work, so together we’ll explore internal messages your body is sending you so you can release old hurts and find freedom from past pain. Using a science-based approach, I frame your experiences using insights from Polyvagal Theory, IFS somatic parts work, and EMDR to help you feel safe inside your own skin and mindfully experience your emotions before trauma processing begins. Read more about my EMDR practice here. And only when you’re ready, we’ll engage in a gentle and powerful exploration of trauma to help you grieve your losses and build the life you’ve been dreaming of.
What makes me different from other therapists is that I specialize in compassion training for complex trauma, which can radically transform your life. Using Mindful Self-Compassion, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, you’ll learn evidenced-based ways of soothing yourself in distress, becoming mindfully present in daily life, setting healthy boundaries for yourself and asking for what you need and treating yourself with the utmost respect. I’m also comfortable discussing sexuality and spirituality concerns from a warm, affirming, and nonjudgemental stance. Counseling with me is a judgement-free zone.
Here are just some of the issues I have helped my people with through secure web-based counseling for Texans across the state:
EMOTIONAL OVERWHELM + BURNOUT
PHYSICAL/ SEXUAL ABUSE OR ASSAULT
EMOTIONAL ABUSE + NEGLECT
ISSUES FROM CHILDHOOD
SPIRITUAL/RELIGIOUS ABUSE RECOVERY
CHRONIC PAIN + ILLNESS
WORK OR SCHOOL STRESS
PANIC ATTACKS + PANIC DISORDER
PHOBIAS OR FEARS INCLUDING FLYING OR DRIVING
UNRESOLVED GRIEF + COMPLICATED BEREAVEMENT
My ideal client is a working professional who wants to get to the roots of their pain and take control of their life. I specialize in working with women, men, and members of the LGBTQ community. I do not specialize in working with children or anyone who is currently in the active stages of addiction. I consider it the highest honor to help people recover from past pain and become their most authentic selves.
