About

Specializing in EMDR, my approach to my clients is nurturing, non-judgmental and change oriented. Many of my clients are helping professionals. As a therapist to therapists, I have vast experience working with individuals who often seek me out because of their emotional suffering. My clients have achieved great success is symptom reduction, as well as improvement in their personal and professional relationships. Clients often come to me with a range of symptoms, and they begin to address the root of the problem, which may include past or relationships issues, as well as acute or complex trauma.
I offer an empathic approach to our work together, and I use cutting edge treatment modalities, including EMDR, trauma informed DBT, CBT and ACT, as well as Somatic therapies, and Inner child work. Healing is possible.
I currently operate a small referral based private practice, and am now able to open my practice to new referrals. My clients are goal directed, and value my research oriented approach. I am a lifelong learner, who is continually updating my skills and approaches, while maintaining a strong, nurturing therapeutic relationship with my clients.
