About Me

I specialize in trauma informed care and grief work. Somatic work is used, and I am certified in EMDR. Mindfulness is at the core of my practice: relaxation and visualization techniques are used to lift depression and reduce anxiety. Cognitive processing is used as a means to make better decisions and have an increased understanding of self.
