Online Therapy

About Me

I am EMDR-trained and specialize in working with older adults, adults struggling with chronic illness and disability. Therapy sessions are typically focused on anxiety, trauma, depression, grief/loss, aging and life changes or transitions. Sometimes, all it takes is the support of one person to help make daily life a little bit better.

Education & Experience

I have over 9 years experience working as a LCSW in medical settings, hospice and private practice. I have been practicing EMDR for over 3 years.
