I specialize in working with adults (ages 18-60) who struggle with the effects of trauma or negative life events. These are any events where you became overwhelmed and went into survival mode to get by. Sometimes we only think that trauma means you were attacked, went to war, got shot at, lived through a natural disaster. However, I also consider things like divorce, pet loss, living on the edge of homelessness, or childhood emotional abuse or neglect as just as traumatizing. I also work with clients who experienced pet loss. Sometimes, the loss of a pet can be just as devastating as the loss of a human, if not more.
I use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy as my primary therapeutic intervention. I also use concepts of parts therapy and traditional talk therapy to help supplement our EMDR work.
I do not offer free consults however, visit my website for questions frequently asked during a consult or email me with any clarifying questions you may have. I look forward to working with you!

"
I primarily use EMDR along with parts work. I may use CBT techniques but what I have noticed in many of the clients I work with is that logic or knowing isn't the problem, it's feeling and believing that something is or isn't true. The use of EMDR and parts work can help us go deeper below the surface to help the mind and body make that connection.
