My goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't always change difficult situations, past or present, we can work together to heal the scars of the past, eliminate negative self-beliefs, and explore new possibilities. I can help you to better understand and resolve day-to-day challenges as well as discover behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.

I just started therapy with Audra’s. She is open to hear my concerns, she is also very knowledgeable and understanding. Audra has an aura that makes me feel calm, like we are close friends. I’ve been in therapy for sometime and non of my previous therapist had made me feel so peaceful after the sessions.
I would recommend her 100%.

Audra has been very helpful with messaging and video calls. I have learned a lot from her and she has given me constant and consistent feed back. It has felt like I have had someone in my corner guiding me in the right direction and out of my fears and anxieties.

Audra has been my therapist longer than any therapist I've ever had. She responds in between sessions with thoughtful advice, holding me accountable to my goals and the issues I've been dealing with. Audra doesn't judge some of my weird thoughts. When I've been on vacation, I still was able to have sessions, and even if I don't have sessions, I can write to her, and usually within 48 hours, I will get a response. It's helpful to me to have that feedback during the time in between sessions. I really lucked out. Thank you!

I have had therapy before but not as effective as with Audra. She knows how to challenge me and keep me moving forward without closing down communication channels and sensitivity. That makes her very effective in helping me get unstuck with PTSD. I have been able to move past initial trauma to going out, getting an emotional support dog, and working. We are not done but awesome work in about 6 months!
