EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

In practice for over 35 years, I am a certified EMDR therapist and integrate this work with Gestalt Therapy and Energy Healing. I see adults and children who are overcoming lifelong and recent traumas, and searching for inner peace, and fulfilling relationships. I use Imago and EFT Relationship therapy with couples and families. I believe that we are more alike than we think, and that we all have what it takes to be fully alive, vibrant, and joyful. Accompanying others on their healing journey is truly an honor and joy for me.
