Empower Women Counseling

Women's Therapy: Counseling for Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, & Womanhood

Primary Focus:

My practice focuses on empowering and supporting women through some of the most challenging life transitions. Whether it be childhood trauma, a difficult breakup, adjustment to motherhood, or low self esteem - these are my specialities. 


As a feminist oriented trauma therapist -I create a secure place where clients not only face their biggest fears but leave feeling empowered to set boundaries in their personal relationships. I can strengthen your resolve, increase your hope, and most importantly - help you recognize your own power during this difficult time.



Perinatal/Postpartum, Attachment Trauma, Motherhood, Narcissistic Abuse, PTSD, Anxiety & Depression.

Treatment Modalities: EMDR, Brainspotting, D.A.R.E. (Dynamic Attachment Repatterning Experience) trained, & Attachment Focused. 


Monday & Tuesday Sessions WILL BE IN OFFICE. Wednesday & Thursday's I am seeing clients in person as well as virtual.
