EMDR Certified Therapist

Online Therapy

About Me

I help pre-teens through adults process trauma and other challenging life experiences that continue to impact them in their present lives. I provide telehealth sessions for clients located in PA, NJ, DE and FL and am a fully licensed clinician in both PA and NJ.

Education & Experience

I work from a relational, psychodynamic, family-systems, and trauma-competent perspective. In my training and experience, I have learned about the value of acknowledging our painful early experiences in a safe space. In doing so, we can help unburden the parts of ourselves that are trying to protect us with extreme or seemingly "nonsensical" behaviors. I truly believe that, even if you don't feel it right now, you make more sense and are more adaptive than you realize. I am trained in and utilize EMDR, IFS, AEDP, and ERP with clients. I integrate concepts from the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics into my assessment to help find ways to better support clients where they are at rather than where they are expected to be. I have been trained extensively in how important it is to understand family histories. Even events that seem subtle on the surface can alter interactions and perceptions over the years, causing patterns in ourselves and our own families that we may not be aware of. While I have experience with a variety of clinical concerns, my focus tends to be on PTSD and trauma, including Adult Children of Alcoholics, Emotional Neglect and other Family of Origin Issues or Relational Trauma. I also have experience treating OCD and phobias. For more information about my training or clinical concerns that I treat, check out my website EncompassedResilienceTherapy.com.
