About Me

I am committed to provide individualized support to encourage you in achieving healthy goals. Because all people are unique, treatment plans and therapy techniques are tailored individually and created collaboratively together. I have a broad range of experience and structure therapy according to your needs and style. During our meetings I may use a variety of techniques including Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing therapy (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, Therapeutic Arts, or other methods to assist you in your growth and recovery. I look forward to working together!
