EMDR Certified Therapist

Online Therapy

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Wisconsin, a National Certified Counselor and a member of the American Counseling Association. I am certified in EMDR and trained in other trauma therapies. I am an Adoption Competent therapist, trained through the Center for Adoption Support and Education . I've been in private practice as a psychotherapist since 2012. My approach to helping you improve your life will be compassionate and insight-oriented. I believe that humor helps healing and that you are your own best expert. I also believe that life and relationships can cloud our ability to know ourselves wisely. My job will be to help you know yourself well -- where you are now, where you've been and where you're headed. Kindness Matters Counseling embodies how I try to live my own life. With so much suffering and divisiveness in the world, there is no such thing as too much kindness. It's simple. It's universal. It costs us nothing. Currently offering EMDR therapy via telehealth in Wisconsin.
