About

Life is SO hard now - most people need help coping. Glad you are ready to take the first stepTogether let's use your strengths to support change. I listen. NO psychobabble, just plain English. EMDR trained to provide effective therapy for - PTSD, depression, anxiety, panic, and insomnia. We'll likely use mindfulness to improve your emotion regulation and self-acceptance. My patients include people with anxiety, mood problems, ADHD, developmental disabilities, chronic medical conditions, trauma histories and autism spectrum disorders. Your concerns DESERVE attention; I will be your partner in healing - Rediscover HOPE with me.
I survived raising a child with an unknown disability. I promised myself that - IF - I came out the other side, I would help other people cope with similar chronically stressful life circumstances. I studied and became a clinical psychologist to be able to help someone like you. Let me help! Together, we can focus on your needs with compassion and hope.
Being a person with special needs can be like living through ongoing mini-traumatic experiences. My work with other people have helped them find peace. Supporting individuals with disabilities and their families with psychotherapy and educational advocacy advice. Helping families obtain services to support their child's success. I'll be on YOUR side.
