About Me

As an EMDRIA approved Consultant, Certified EMDR Therapist, and Certified Brainspotting Therapist, I offer evidenced based brain-body psychotherapy for patients and EMDR consultation for therapists. These modalities work with the self-healing aspects of our biology, restoring balance to the nervous system, and influencing neural patterning so that deep and lasting change can occur. Along with anxiety and trauma, I have a special interest in Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and related chronic conditions. In my group practice, Crescent City Psychotherapy and Wellness, individualized trauma-informed care is provided in a person-centered and collaborative approach. EMDR & BSP intensives are available, as well as weekly support sessions. Seeking support is a courageous and compassionate choice. I invite you to reach out today. All are welcome.
