How I provide support.
My approach is person-centered and trauma-informed, meaning I center your safety and comfort. I work to empower you to utilize your innate capacity for healing and growth and to uncover the strengths that already exist within you through either EMDR or talk therapy. If you feel out of place or disconnected, together we can begin to cultivate awareness and intentionality so that you can live life as your most authentic self; and if you’re still figuring out who that is, you’re in the right place. Counseling is a collaborative process, so I seek to meet you where you are at and walk alongside you in your humanness.
I offer therapy sessions both online or in-person at our Denton office.
