Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, MT4038
Entering therapy is similar to summoning the courage to open an over-flowing closet that has been long ignored. Though daunting, with the right tools and an understanding guide the task can become a manageable and, in many cases, rewarding experience. As your guide, Winona can help you shine a light on emotions, experiences, and relationships that you may be afraid to touch due to fear, shame, guilt, or uncertainty of how to process them. By utilizing an integrative approach, she helps her clients assess and move through their emotional experiences while also applying new skills to help them reach their innermost personal goals.
Winona believe the therapeutic process is meant to instill hope and help clients to discover a new understanding of themselves, their relationships, and the world around them. Her therapy sessions are structured as a collaborative process that should work to diminish anxiety and unlearn self-deprecating patterns, guided by the client’s personal story and experiences.
She specializes in individuals dealing with low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression, those moving through life transitions or on a journey of sexual exploration, as well as couples managing intimacy or communication issues. She welcomes individuals and couples of all ages, ethnicities, cultural backgrounds, and sexual/gender identities to her practice.
