About Me

I'm here to meet you where you are today. My job is being present with you in your humanness, to help you understand where you are, where you've come from, and where you want to go. Together we create a safe space to help you navigate being a human, one who is learning how to relate to yourself, others, your environment, and your spirituality. I specialize in using EMDR along with other evidence-based practices such as Embodiment, Ego-State, ACT, and Mindfulness. My focus is to understand you within the systems that affect your daily life and collaborate with you on which approaches might work best to help you reach your therapeutic goals. I have primarily focused my work with the LGBTQ+ community and religious trauma survivors. If you have any questions about my availability please email me.
