EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

I practice a holistic approach to wellness - mind, body, heart, spirit - to determine if these feel integrated and fulfilling and reflect someone's true nature. I incorporate EMDR, meditation, imagery, yoga, energy work, sand tray therapy, and other body practices into the healing process. While exploring, honoring, and releasing patterns that no longer serve and treating unresolved trauma, we will naturally reconnect with our true selves and life will begin to unfold in the most beautiful ways. I trust in each person's internal compass and innate healing ability and support the practice of aligning with that knowing. As a cancer survivor, I have a special interest in supporting those whose lives have been touched by cancer and other life-threatening or chronic diseases. These experiences are life-changing, and it is my honor to help people realize the transformative potential they can have.
