***EMDR CLINICIAN ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AS OF 11/1*** How many times have you heard, “why can’t you just stop?” Do you find yourself wishing those around you would attempt to understand your experience and hear you? Addiction, anxiety, and depression are already so isolating and we often have a difficult time understanding our own behavior without trying to explain it to family and friends. We feel stuck, alone, frustrated, and misunderstood. Imagine what it would be like to identify the root cause of your addiction and start treating the source while learning coping skills for managing addictive behavior, anxiety, and depression.

I have a warm and open relational style that communicates value and worth to my clients. My goal is to elicit your own strengths to make the change that you want. Too much guidance takes away your own autonomy, and too little keeps you confused, but finding the balance is one of the keys to good therapy. My clients appreciate my client centered and accepting style and most of my referrals come from previous client's recommendations. I have extensive experience with addiction, codependence, anxiety, depression, grief, relationship issues, OCD, perfectionism, and ADHD.

My experience as a social worker is vast, but my real passion is treating individuals that struggle with dual diagnosis- both mental health and addiction issues.
I'm excited to say that I recently added EMDR to my therapist toolbox! In addition to the "classic" CBT, DBT and Motivational Interviewing, I decided that my practice with clients needed an upgrade and EMDR is an experience I am pleased to offer my clients that struggle with trauma, addictions or are just feeling "stuck" with traditional talk therapy. EMDR is a method of therapy that strengthens my desire to meet clients where they are at and work on the issues my client wants to address.
