people struggling with anxiety & trauma

I provide a safe and empathetic space where clients can be themselves and truly share their story with me. We all have unhelpful thoughts/coping strategies/emotional patterns that we pick up along the way that may have helped us adapt in the past but have kept us from growing.

I utilize my client’s strengths to help them find their voice and empower them to make the changes to achieve the life they want. I believe that every person has potential and I would love to help you on your growth journey.

I have years of experience in helping people with anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions, relationship issues as well as everyday life stressors and challenges.

My therapeutic approach involves establishing a safe and trusting relationship and environment that is non-judgmental, caring and genuine. I utilize an emotion-focused approach to help clients understand and express their emotions in a healthy and productive way.

I also practice cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, couples therapy, mindfulness, and an overall holistic wellness approach.

Forensic & Clinical Evaluation

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”— Brené Brown

Sharing your story with someone who can hear it, truly hear it, with empathy and objectivity can be a life altering experience. I believe in identifying and treating the underlying issues that frequently manifest in the thoughts and behaviors which bring people to therapy.

I am honored to share the journeys of identifying the trauma responses that cause detachment, shame, numbing, or the unmet needs which lead us to addiction, maladaptive coping, and unhealthy relationships with brave, resilient humans.

I am passionate about reducing the stigma of mental health issues and helping others to see how they can live meaningfully with all their imperfections. I also appreciate how difficult it can be to admit you need and then to ask for help.

“Just because no one else can heal or do your inner work for you doesn’t mean you can, should, or need to do it alone.” — Lisa Olivera

Most of my practice involves evaluation and working to identify the factors which may be relevant to explaining and understanding behavior. I enjoy clinical and forensic evaluation, both of which allow for the unveiling of issues relevant to understanding the reasons for our actions.

Especially enjoys working with:
those who have endured traumatic experiences

The brain and body are truly magnificent. Sometimes people feel as if their own is broken, different, or damaged. There may be a specific incident that brings up this thought. Or maybe they don’t know why they feel that way, they just do.

I have taken my time in the field to find ways to treat all types of symptoms with facets from multiple modalities with the approach that the more options a person has, the more likely they are to find something that works. It is my goal to assist others in finding that something to help their system do what it was designed to: heal and connect.

I am trained in Eye Movement Sensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to help in the reprocessing of maladaptively stored memories. I am certified in and have five years of experience with Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). I am trained in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) to assist caregivers and their children.
