Counseling Services

Counseling & Psychotherapy​

Are you looking for real change? I provide personalized counseling to address your specific needs and engage in more than talking to help you meet your goals.

Through our work together we can:

  • – Cultivate awareness of the patterns that are causing you difficulties
  • – Begin to relate to those patterns in a new way
  • – Heal the root causes of the patterns that hold you back
  • – Create new paths and see new options moving forward
  • – Release past limitations and step into your potential

Importantly, this isn’t just about learning skills or techniques (I’ve got those too!). Therapy is about diving deep into your healing from the inside out.

Integrating the wisdom of your body and the Neuroscience of Psychology are integral to the work I do. Unlocking where patterns of emotions, behaviors, thoughts are stuck is possible when you address the deep underlying patterns.

What you can expect
You can increase your insight and experience real change. Through our work together you can be more in control of your emotions and behaviors. You can feel more whole, connected, and balanced.

Teletherapy & Online Counseling

I specialize in providing services online. In fact, I now work with all of my clients online. Whether you are at home, at work, or simply too busy to commute to the therapy office, you can get the help and care you deserve through online therapy.

Online therapy, also known as e-therapy, teletherapy, telehealth and remote therapy, is considered (and proven) to be just as effective as in person therapy, in some cases more so. The only difference is you can choose where you are most comfortable and when is most convenient for you.

We meet using fully HIPAA-compliant, confidential software so that you can access support at your convenience without worrying about your privacy.

I have Telehealth for Mental Health certification. I have studied with many of my teachers and mentors to adjust all my somatic and holistic methods to working online. I have found that you are often more comfortable diving deep into healing when you’re at home. I’ve moved my whole practice online to offer you therapy with no commute and on your schedule. 

IFS Internal Family Systems

Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy is an integrative approach to psychotherapy. IFS is an evidence-based therapy that is used to treat and work with a wide array of mental health issues and emotional challenges. IFS is based on the idea that as humans we have different parts of ourselves that help us to manage different aspects of our lives. Parts work believes that we are all made up of different parts of ourselves; each part necessary to help us survive different aspects and times in our lives.

This internal family systems (IFS) model was created by Richard Schwartz. The principles of IFS are that we all have parts within ourselves, like people who have different goals and motivations; they have different levels of maturity, excitability, wisdom and pain. Many major schools of psychology have proposed that people have different sub personalities or parts including Freud’s id, ego, and superego, and the ego states model in Transactional Analysis (parent, adult, and child).

IFS is especially helpful in addressing inner conflicts. “How often have you said one part of me wants to do this and another part of me really doesn’t?” IFS supports in getting to the heart of the issue and resolving the conflict by understanding the purpose and intention of each of the “parts” of us that may be in conflict.

Somatic Therapy


If you’ve spent a lot of time talking and thinking about past hurts, but haven’t felt a significant change, it might be a good time to explore somatic therapy. In somatic experiencing therapy, we know that “body remembers.” We know that trauma, stress and anxiety build up and are stored in the body. Are you “overreacting” to stressors? Feel like you are on edge all the time? This is your body reacting to more than just the present, it has stored its responses to the past.

When you experience a traumatic or stressful event your body stores that information for the future, just in case. Then you experience some kind of similar event or stressor, and your body reacts automatically to the present event just as it did in the past. This is a survival mechanism and works well when we do really need to fight, flight or freeze in order to live. However, your body and nervous system can get stuck in this loop if you have experienced chronic trauma or stress. 

Somatic Therapy is a way of treating these underlying patterns in your system. As a result, many of the thinking, behavioral and emotional patterns are then easily shifted. Read more about Somatic Therapy here:



EMDR is one of the most effective ways to treat trauma.
EMDR – What does it do?

One of the central goals of EMDR is to help you leave the past in the past. Have you found yourself in the same situation again and again, or repeating thought patterns and behaviors even though you know better? Often this is due to unresolved issues from the past. Trauma and difficult experiences can impact our emotions, thoughts, moods and behaviors for years. EMDR is an evidence-based therapy that uses bilateral stimulation of the brain to help release old patterns.

EMDR - What does it treat?

EMDR can effectively be used to treat PTSD, trauma, abuse, panic attacks, anxiety, phobias, complicated grief, disturbing memories, body image issues to name a few. EMDR can help reduce emotional distress related to a wide variety of issues.

After EMDR
After EMDR clients report that the emotional distress related to the memories, events or emotional triggers has been eliminated, or greatly decreased, and that they have gained important insights. People often report that anxiety is reduced, sleep is improved, fears are no longer present, they feel they can engage in life more freely and experience joy again.
