EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

I have worked as a therapist for 15 years. I have enjoyed working with individuals and couples across the lifespan. I have found that often times past experiences influence how one perceives and experiences the here and now. My EMDR training has allowed me to assist individuals in reprocessing traumatic memories and establish more adaptive responses for an overall improved sense of well being. Prior to becoming a Licensed Psychologist I worked as a Registered Nurse for over 25 years. My nursing experience and knowledge helps me to understand the impact medical illnesses and conditions have on overall wellbeing.
