About Me

Currently accepting referrals for telehealth and in person in Capitol Hill, Seattle. I am a cult and childhood trauma survivor. I received EMDR training from the EMDR institute before completing certification. I worked in community mental health and homeless services for a total of 4.5 years before starting my private practice. I utilize EMDR, parts work, polyvagal theory and narrative therapy to treat childhood trauma/Complex PTSD and religious trauma. Please visit my website for more info.
