Getting Started


Thanks so much for reaching out to me.  I know it takes quite a bit of courage to move toward health and wholeness, and my sincere hope is that you feel welcome here.  

 

I'd love to share with you some important values that guide my practice:

Connection

That all of my clients would know and experience that I am with them throughout this whole process

Hospitality

An open invitation to be real, to share as much or as little as you would like; to feel that when you arrive, the time and space is prepared for you

Impact

That your story and healing would in turn help and serve others; that your new "home" would welcome others

Restoration

Experiencing genuine transformation and healing because of what you invest in this process; that relationships would be rebuilt and hope would be renewed

Wholeness

Finding that the growth you experience in therapy begins to spread and affect all areas of life

"Screen-based media associated with structural differences in brains of young children"

Science Daily 

 

"A new study documents structural differences in the brains of preschool-age children related to screen-based media use. The study, published in JAMA Pediatrics, shows that children who have more screen time have lower structural integrity of white matter tracts in parts of the brain that support language and other emergent literacy skills. These skills include imagery and executive function — the process involving mental control and self-regulation. These children also have lower scores on language and literacy measures."
