EMDR Certified Therapist

Online Therapy

About Me

I am passionate about facilitating the therapeutic process and empowering clients with the ability to heal their mind, body, and spirit through evidence-based therapeutic modalities. My therapeutic style begins by creating a safe and comfortable environment where you are heard and valued. Success comes from exploring and evaluating one’s unique thoughts, feelings, and behaviors while applying practical strategies that bring positive and lasting change. Everyone deserves to become the person they want to be and experience life to its fullest. My approach is tailored to each client. Everyone is different - we all have different needs, personalities, preferences, and viewpoints. As an EMDR trained clinician, I have extensive experience working with trauma, depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. I also utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and Mindfulness. I believe you are a whole person that deserves empathy, compassion, and expertise. It is my honor to join with you as we work toward restoration and healing. If you are interested in therapy or just want to learn more about what it might look like, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. I am happy to help in any way I can.
