Worry happens in your mind, stress happens in your body, and anxiety happens in your mind and your body. In small doses, worry, stress and anxiety can be positive forces in our lives.

But most of us are too worried, too stressed and too anxious. How do we manage this worry, stress and anxiety in a healthy manner? My strength is building rapport, empathy and holding space for my clients by listening and utilizing curiosity. Focusing on both the physical sensations in your body and sharing life challenges is a comprehensive approach to therapy. I utilize EMDR, narrative therapy, emotional freedom, somatic exercises, technique(tapping), DBT and CBT.

It is okay to not have all the answers. Asking for help and guidance is a form of self-care that you deserve.
