I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from SUNY Buffalo and a Masters in Integral Counseling Psychology from The California Institute of Integral Studies. I've completed Level 1&2 EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques/AKA Tapping) training from EFTi International and am currently working on completing my training to become an Accredited and Certified EFT Practitioner.
One of my favorite quotes by Mary Ann Evans, better known by her pen name, George Eliot is "It's never too late to be what you might have been." I just love how hopeful this is and believe it to be true.
What I enjoy most about being a therapist is being able to provide a safe space for clients to share what is happening for them with compassion, kindness, and non-judgement.
My style is interactive, warm, and real. I'm not the type of therapist that doesn't say much. I help you to feel heard but I also get in there with you. It's a very collaborative process. Plus I have a pretty great sense of humor and know for sure that laughter can be very healing.
I hold a spiritual view of the world, meaning that I believe there is something bigger than myself guiding and supporting us here. It is this belief that comforts and grounds me when life gets really uncertain.
