About Me

Hi and welcome! I have been passionate about helping people through trauma since I was young. I learned about EMDR and got trained in it in 2016. It has absolutely transformed my practice. I love it! Throughout my career I've worked in various settings but my passion now is to help other helping professionals maintain their passion. I specialize with first responders, medical professionals and other therapists, teachers, veterinarians, and others. Burnout, especially today, is so prevalent and the suicide rate among first responders and veterinarians is higher than the national average. I am honored to help bring people back to a place of peace and control in their lives, giving back to those who give so much of themselves to our community!
