Welcome to Mosaic Wellness Counseling. Whether you are here because you are struggling to make sense of trauma-related symptoms, struggling to maintain healthy boundaries and relationships, feel overwhelmed by depression or anxiety, or simply trying to find some hope in life, I believe that you have the capacity for positive change. I understand that change can be difficult to initiate and that life can be hard.
I believe that there is hope and that you have the capacity to create positive change in your life. I believe that counseling involves the whole person and I integrate techniques from several therapy modalities to help you best reach your therapy goals. I have specialized training in EMDR therapy to treat trauma-related symptoms, PTSD, anxiety, and depression. I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults; and I approach therapy from a trauma-informed perspective.
I believe that we can help you build healthy interpersonal relationships, make sense of trauma-related symptoms, and ground yourself in the present, connecting your mind and body. I recognize that each person is unique and want to help you bring out your unique and individual strengths. I strive to provide a safe and judgement free space where you can wrestle with questions, identify goals,and take steps toward healing and wellness.
