Online Therapy

About Me

I specialize in treating trauma memories DIRECTLY using EMDR and other techniques that free clients from their emotional pain and symptoms in DAYS, not years - this is NOT talk therapy. I work with clients in Vancouver and across North America in person and via Zoom, and I am willing to travel to your location. I also offer 1/2 day/full day/multiple day sessions.

Education & Experience

I have an MSW from Smith College, and am certified in EMDR via my clinical internship at The Trauma Institute of Florence MA. I currently have over 2700hrs of experience with EMDR

Professional & Volunteer Affiliations

I am a Registered Social Worker in British Columbia and Canada
