About Me

I am an EMDR-Certified mental health therapist and EMDR Consultant-In-Training who works with individuals and adolescents. I provide EMDR and EMDR intensives in order to help clients heal from trauma and anxiety. I particularly love EMDR intensives because we have the opportunity to create fast, profound, healing results. I approach counseling with exceptional compassion, curiosity, and thoughtfulness. I believe Black lives matter and social justice is of core importance to therapy. I welcome and empower LGBTQIA+ clients. I inspire change and growth in my clients with gentle encouragement, evidenced-based practices, and humor. I offer support to people with relational, career, creative, and personal challenges through a trauma-informed lens. I use cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness to help clients overcome anxiety, depression, or attachment challenges in order to help make life dreams come true. I enjoy acting, filmmaking, and comedy in my spare time. Seeking counseling is an act of bravery—I am here to travel alongside you. My goal is to put you at ease and offer the support you need as you find your most grounded and healing path forward. I see California and Oregon residents.
