About Me

I am an IFS-informed EMDR therapist working with a variety of formats, all of which seek to identify and move through the roots of symptomology. I personalize less-frequent, longer sessions to cultivate an immersive visit and a deliberate learning environment. This form of trauma-therapy allows for prolonged depth to strengthen your relationship with yourself, your work, and others. We define goals that allow us to access our fullest expression of self. We find distance from our trauma in the present.
