Looking for help? I will work to make the first step easier for you. Together let's use your strengths, style and needs to support change. I listen. NO psychobabble, just plain English. EMDR trained to provide effective therapy for many disorders - PTSD, 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!
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.
