About Me

Faith - Family - Friends, in that order! I believe children have a voice and need to be heard and believed. I fully believe in the power of EMDR Therapy to provide the hope and healing so many people need. Since EMDR training in 1999 & 2000, I have witnessed the changes and transformation of so many people's lives. I am honored to be certified as an EMDR therapist, and working toward my Consultant status. EMDR Therapy is a powerful gift I am excited to share with people!
