I work with my clients to develop self-compassion, increased self-esteem, resilience to stress, encouragement during times of high stress or low motivation, better time-management, & adaptation to transitions such as starting college or a new nursing job. I find clients have excellent progress applying the practice of mind-body skills & guided imagery, especially when processing trauma, grief, or exploring attachment patterns developed in childhood. I believe there is a place for medications, and they help many people, I also understand that many people do not benefit from medications. I can help clients reduce their alcohol intake and safely taper off of benzodiazepines and other medications. By taking a proactive, individualized approach to your care, we can work together to develop a plan tailored to your personal goals. Clients tell me they "feel much better" after our sessions, that I am "very responsive", & they like my "vibe".
