About Me

Hello! I'm so glad you have reached out and taken the first step towards healing. Are you feeling stuck, trying to address the same problems over and over? Are past experiences holding you back in the present? Do you want to get to the bottom of that nagging issue? Are you looking to achieve your fullest potential in a non-judgmental, supportive therapeutic relationship? If yes, then we might be a good fit. I am an EMDR-trained therapist primarily treating trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders through this evidence-based modality. At times, we may also use other techniques such as CBT, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness to promote peace and wellbeing.
