I hold a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Southern California. My interest in EMDR dates back to 2010, and I have been formally trained in EMDR therapy since 2022. With a focus on trauma recovery and wellness, I have been providing therapy since 2015. Over the years, I have accumulated invaluable experience working with diverse populations, including adults, adolescents, and families, addressing a wide range of trauma-related issues.
