“Everything can always be different!” Alfred Adler. I believe that seeking to
create change is one of the most courageous actions a person can take in his
or her life. Individuals, couples, or families can feel stuck for a number of
different reasons. Together, we will work to identify goals and tools to help
you feel “unstuck”. I use a trauma-sensitive approach to help people cope,
heal, and grow from hurtful past experiences to achieve a higher level of
satisfaction in their relationships with themselves, others, and the world. To
me, therapy is about developing a trusting relationship with a neutral party
to discuss your hopes, wishes, pains, and sorrows. I use a strengths-based
approach to highlight the individual resiliency in you to overcome life’s
obstacles. I find this is best achieved through conversation, education, art,
and play. Because we know past trauma lives on in the body, we may also use
some body-based interventions to help free up and move stored experiences.
