About

Are you feeling stuck and looking for change? If so, I and my Animal Assisted Therapy dog, Max, who is an adorable Standard Groodle, may just be the right team for you!. I offer the best possible evidence-based treatments including advanced EMDR protocols and Level III Gottman Method Couples Therapy. So if you want changes like the flashbacks and nightmares to stop, sleep to improve, no more panic attacks and worrying/rumination, no more conflicts and hurt in your relationship, then Max and I would value the opportunity to help you.
I bring psychological science into the room in easy ways to understand how you got here, why you are stuck and what needs to happen to change. Therapy is delivered in person or virtually. I have a special interest in treating couples and individuals with depression/anxiety, PTSD, Complex PTSD, chronic PTSD, personality issues, substance abuse.
My experience as a partner of a first responder places me in a unique position to understand the impact of trauma on the individual, couple and the family system. I genuinely understand what you are going through. Why not call my team today and arrange a free 15min call with me to see if we gel and you think I (and Max) are the right fit for you?
