EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

I use EMDR to reprocess upsetting or traumatic memories that are specifically associated with your current symptoms. EMDR is a treatment that was developed to target trauma. If negative memories still have the power to make your body react (wave of anxiety, tightness in chest, increased heart rate, etc.) simply by bringing the memory to mind or seeing something that reminds you of an aspect of the upsetting event, I can help. Not only will you learn skills to cope, but by reprocessing the memories we may be able to decrease or eliminate symptoms so you don't have to spend so much time coping!

Education & Experience

I received my Masters degree from UConn in 2015 and Began my first clinical role as a therapist in 2017. I completed EMDR training in 2019 and have since adopted it as my main modality. I completed the additional EMDR certification in 2022.
