About Me

My own journey with mental health started long before I became a healthcare provider. As a teen, I struggled to make sense of the chaos that was both my inner and outer world. I didn't have words to describe my experience and felt disconnected from my body. I had no capacity for self-compassion or self-kindness. I went to a therapist with whom I didn't connect and began to feel hopeless. Thankfully, I didn't give up. I continued my search for something that could help. I discovered that not all therapists are created equal and that different therapeutic modalities speak to different people. I found healing and balance. I learned to slow down, connect with myself, connect with others, and find peace and happiness. This transformation felt like a miracle after years of suffering and my path in life became clear: to offer the tools for that same transformation to others and help alleviate their suffering. It is truly an honor for me to walk with you in support of your journey to healing.

Education & Experience

I began my EMDR training in 2014 and have been taking ongoing advanced training since that time, including Internal Family System (IFS)-Informed EMDR and using EMDR with dissociation. In addition to EMDR, I utilized DBT, CBT, somatic therapies, and interpersonal neurobiology to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to each client's individual needs. I have helped clients develop peace, autonomy, empowerment, self-esteem, and confidence through a deep sense of self-compassion and self-love. Sometimes we can know something in our head but have a hard time feeling the truth of it in our body and heart; for example, the knowledge that we are worthy of joy and love. When we prioritize our relationship with the self and our self-compassion, we can begin to identify our needs, assert boundaries with others, and connect more deeply to our own inner voice and sense of empowerment. Together we will work toward integrating mind, body, and spirit. If you choose to work with me in therapy, you can expect that we will work at your own pace. I will be a guide that helps you on your path to find your inner strength, happiness, and peace.
