Accredited Certified EFT Practitioner
I commit to walking along side you, to hear your stories and support you as you need to be supported. EFT/Tapping can help to locate, release stress and re-author you life's story. You need not struggle alone, if you find yourself in the depths of an illness, depression, recovery from abuse, or residual trauma, please know that I am available to assist along the way.
Health struggles, grief, and loss are a part of my distant and recent past. I know what it's like to lose a parent at a young age, which is unexpected, traumatic and life changing. Grieving the loss of my parent at a young age left me feeling numb, disconnected socially, but also forced to be present and get things done amidst the pain. This pulled at my heart, my mind and overall physical energy. Grief stands nearby, runs deep, but also touches your heart, filled with an appreciation for memories and dreams. I also understand what it means to live through an illness that teeters on wellness and pain. My young son was diagnosed with an Autoimmune disease, called PANDAS a couple of years ago. My son was lost, changed dramatically overnight, with a sudden onset of physical and emotional symptoms. Our medical struggle turned into a fight to get my son back, where he remains healthy and engaged in life, with occasional bumps in the road.
My professional experience spans from working in school settings, in-home support, social service agencies and a private practice therapist. I enjoy working with children ages 8 plus, teens, individuals, older-aged adults and families. Areas of interest and expertise include working with families in crisis, foster care issues, child abuse, domestic violence, loss of a parent, grief, family reunification, medical trauma, and parenting challenges by way of parent coaching and therapy.
