About Me

Practicing since 1999, I have extensive experience treating PTSD/trauma (sexual abuse/assault, partner violence, etc.) and anxiety with EMDR. I have completed the Advancing Clinical Excellence in Sexuality (ACES) Certification and am comfortable working with consenting non-monogamy, transgender, and am kink-aware. I enjoy treating other helping professionals. We use your strengths to overcome current and historical obstacles. I'm an EMDRIA Approved Consultant (for clinicians) offering EMDR group and individual consultation via video. Also, now offering intensive EMDR sessions virtually or in-person in Western Massachusetts.
