Reducing symptoms of PTSD, stress, anxiety, dissociation, panic, and depression are reasons why people reach out for therapy. I am a certified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) (Approved Consultant/Trainer) and Brainspotting, which are trauma resolution therapies that allow you to heal your past so you can move forward in new and healthy ways. Now performing Neurofeedback and Trauma Resolution Intensives to help with a variety of conditions. 2 Locations: Chatham and Hudson NY *Also ONLINE AVAILABLE*

Past experiences impact how we greet life today. When we don't feel connected we often feel helpless and hopeless. This is not permanent, although it can feel like it is. The eclectic therapeutic experience is an important element to me but my approach is also grounded in evidence-based practices.
