About Me

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist that approaches her work with passion, care and hope, to bring relief and healing to my clients. I strongly believe in the EMDR process and have experienced countless times, the relief and healing my clients received from traumatic memories and experiences, they've endured in life. When you meet me, you will immediately feel that I am engaged in your story and see how vested I am in building trust and helping you no longer feel "stuck." It is an honor to be in this field and a gift to help others. My approach is one of empathy and respect and to ensure you are not alone as move towards your healing.
