EMDR Certified Therapist

EMDR Consultant

About Me

I have always been dedicated to providing my clients with the highest standard of care. Because of this, I continually strive to gain the training and experience in evidence-based treatment modalities. EMDR is the main framework from which I conceptualize and practice psychotherapy with clients. I am also a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, so I work with clients to help them utilize their body's own self-healing capacities in therapy.
