About Me

I’m a trauma-focused therapist helping those who are struggling with childhood trauma, women’s issues, and mood disorders. I use EMDR, Hypnoanalysis and Attachment-Trauma focused therapy as my main approaches to acknowledge and heal your wounded inner child. I’m not a typical therapist who would nod, smile, take notes, and only sit there and listen to you. Although, I do use those basic therapy skills, I also work at a deeper, subconscious level using EMDR and Hypnoanalysis to find and remove the root cause of the issues you’re facing today. My clients walk away from therapy feeling freed from the past, empowered to navigate their emotions and thoughts in the present, and more fulfilled and confident about their life and their future.
