About Me

Now taking new clients! My approach is holistic and eclectic, drawing from CBT, DBT, and mindfulness and mindfulness practices. I am EMDR certified, and I am especially passionate about helping those who struggle with relational and attachment trauma and how it effects our self-image as well as our ability to make and maintain relationships in the present. I believe each person knows what they need in order to heal themselves and that living well is a journey and a skill set. Please contact me to be a witness and support for your healing journey.
