About Me

I am a person-centered, holistic therapist. I believe in supporting people where they are at while I work with you to build confidence and motivation to make changes. I have a mind, body, and spirit approach to your care. You are the expert in your life and I am there to support your growth. I am formally trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). EMDR is a way for us to process events in a safe environment to help decrease distress from those events. It is very effective and powerful. This form of therapy is helpful for anxiety, depression, stress, grief, and much more. ​
