For the first half of my professional career I was a software developer for a large aerospace company. I loved what I was doing but I didn’t feel like I was contributing to the world in the way I wanted. I wanted to find something that better served my heart and decided to make the leap of faith into being in the healing profession as a Psychotherapist. I have always been a good listener, empathic person, curious, warm, and genuinely interested in people. I am passionate about personal growth and how important I feel it is to the healing of the consciousness of humanity and especially now in today’s world.
I have lots and lots of life experience being a mother, grandmother, wife, sister, daughter, friend, and community builder. I believe this really adds to my profession in that while I have not experienced everything everyone has ever gone through, I understand life and life’s journeys, transitions, and all the ups and downs we go through in each stage.
I am also passionate about working for many years with indigenous plant medicines doing my own inner healing, and gaining insights into my relationships, fears, anxieties, grief, and trauma.
I look forward to working with you if you want to take a journey into your own life with someone who feels passionate about helping others reach their full potential and break through whatever is stopping them from reaching self-actualization and inner peace.
Individual TherapyIn working with individuals I like to take an eclectic approach using many tools and theories. I customize and track each person where they are and were they want to go. While I primarily am Rogerian focused, I also provide Parts work, Psychodynamic, CBT, Emotional Focus Therapy, Mindfulness, Transpersonal and other methods listed below. I customize the process for each person. I specialize in working with anxiety, trauma, PTSD and relationship issues.Marriage/Couples TherapyI love working with couples. I typically use Imago Relationship therapy tools , Emotionally focused therapy and also pull in my skills in Non-Violent Communication (NVC) to help couples work together to find that place of deeper listening and empathy for how things are occurring for the other. I work to help couples heal from infidelities and trust issues. In working to help transform the power struggle most couples engage in, I help them transition to a more conscious relationship and come to the realization they are actually on the same team!Indigenous Medicines and Psychedelic IntegrationAt this time I believe we are entering into a renaissance of the ancient and indigenous use of plant medicines for growth and their healing potential. I work with individuals who need additional support after experiencing psychedelic medicine journeys (I do not provide these) to help them integrate these into their daily lives.
