About Me

I help those who are struggling, are feeling overwhelmed with constant worries or intrusive thoughts, are pushing through life every single day wanting to get better and are not living the life that they would like to live. When working with me, you get help. You get the opportunity to heal from your past, care for your suffering inner child, feel safe again, sleep without nightmares, increase your confidence, improve your self-worth and finally achieve relief. I support my clients so that they can find their voice, feel like themselves again and let go of pain stemming from the past. If you’ve tried “talk therapy” and found that it hasn’t been enough to help, EMDR therapy may be right for you. Through the use of EMDR, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Somatic Experiencing (SE), my clients are able to achieve deep and lasting healing from anxiety, depression, PTSD, C-PTSD, dissociation, trauma, grief and more. With these effective approaches, my clients are able to stabilize quicker, report greater resilience to stressors and sustain greater long-term treatment outcomes when therapy is completed. I am passionate about the work that I do and love being a part of my client's healing process. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, an EMDRIA approved EMDR Consultant, a Certified EMDR Therapist and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. I am also formally trained in intensive trauma-focused therapy. If you are seeking Intensive Trauma-Focused EMDR for quicker results, look no more!
