About Me

Please see for more information about working with EMDR intensively. Sometimes "talk therapy" isn't enough. EMDR works directly with the brain and the way thoughts, memory, feelings, beliefs and body sensations are stored when we experience disturbing events/trauma. I am an LPC and Certified EMDR Therapist experienced in treating traumatic stress reactions, depression, anxiety, grief and loss. I specialize in using EMDR, Image Transformation Therapy, EFT, somatic awareness, and mindfulness tools with a focus on: healthcare & human services | educators | public safety | survivors of trauma, natural disasters, critical incidents, childhood sexual abuse and other adverse childhood/ life experiences. Using an individualized, multi-dimensional, integrative approach to mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness, we work together to untangle personal trauma from vicarious trauma, burnout, compassion fatigue, resolve effects primary/secondary trauma, address cumulative stressors and promote psychological and physiological healing. It's not about what's wrong with you, it's about what's happened to you. If you are ready to explore ways to resolve symptoms of trauma in the body/mind/brain, mitigate stress, and strengthen resilience- you have come to the right place.
