I take a trauma-informed and holistic approach when working with clients. Our thoughts, emotions, and sensations aren't just experienced in our minds; they are experienced in our bodies. Our bodies have the innate capability for healing and the wisdom to know what is needed. When we become disconnected from our emotions and bodies and from things like stress, trauma, or shame, it can leave us feeling "stuck" and unable to truly thrive. I help clients strengthen their mind-body connection and tap into their own inner knowing to facilitate meaningful change and healing.
I am a Board Certified Art Therapist, Licensed Mental Health Counselor, and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional with more than 9 years of experience providing mental health services to individuals in the Tallahassee area. I incorporate aspects of Art Therapy, mindfulness-based approaches, Polyvagal Theory, somatic therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in treatment.
I have experience working with a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, pet loss, adjustment issues, life transitions, relationship concerns, self-esteem, LGBTQ+ concerns, and identity development. I work with individuals 18 years of age and older.
