About

I am a trauma-informed therapist with EMDR training. Life can throw obstacles our way and it is when we have a supportive, safe environment to help us get back on the path that we can thrive and be the best version of ourselves. I embody a positive, strength-based approach designed to empower the individual and guide them in helping themselves. In doing so, I work to assist clients in developing the tools and positive resources to help them tackle future stressors. I also aim to assist my clients in regulating symptoms of anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and PTSD.
I utilize EMDR, somatic work, and CBT in my practice where we focus on work with depression, anxiety, life stressors and more, taking an analytic approach. I aim to help clients connect the seemingly unrelated puzzle pieces together in order to begin to move forward.
I use an integrative approach that highlights self empowerment and positive psychology principles. I assist my clients in exploring their thought processes and to learn how they impact all areas of their life; both negative and positive. We also utilize advocacy principles and assist clients in navigating the healthcare system.
