I specialize in treating trauma and have been trained in EMDR therapy, though this isn't my only approach to treating trauma.
I believe every good therapist has done their own work. I have been a therapy client at different times throughout my life. I don’t ask my clients to do anything I haven’t done myself. Together we will work to identify the best approach to healing for you.

Additionally, I am EMDR trained.
When each moment is a battle to stay afloat, the future may seem bleak. When you are depressed and anxious and your thoughts tell you these feelings are never going to end, you need to know this is a distortion that is completely untrue. These feelings of hopelessness and helplessness are common with depression. Imagine getting through this dark period and transitioning into time where you not only feel better, but you feel even better than before.

I work with a combination of talk therapy, EMDR , and sometimes art, to help you find balance and heal.
Being sensitive in this world isn't easy. If you identify as a healer or a highly sensitive/empathetic person, you may find yourself trying to use your gifts to "save" others. You may find that people easily open up to you. You may also find that a lot of your dating life has been based on healing, changing, and helping others. It leaves little room for your needs, leading to dysfunctional relationships. When you continuously have projects instead of partners you might be worried your "picker" is broken. It's not broken. It's just not your job to heal everyone. It's time to find a relationships based on reciprocity.

I hold a Perinatal Mental Health Certification and am trained in EMDR .
This wasn't how it was supposed to go. You're worried you will feel this way forever, that you will never feel like yourself again. Maybe you’re reading this because your parenting experience is not what you expected it to be, in fact, it’s probably been pretty awful so far. Perhaps you’ve experienced child, infant, or pregnancy loss and there are really no words to describe the void you feel right now. The loss is inexpressible and you feel so alone. Or you’re struggling to cope with chronic illness, grief, or life stressors. You feel like you’re hiking through a forest without a map... you just want to find a path forward.

I also provide supervision for pre-licensed clinicians and am approved by the EMDR International Association to provide individual and group consultation to EMDR therapists.
Have you lost your footing? I specialize in traumatic grief counseling and reducing the negative effects of traumatic events. Sudden losses can throw you off center.

I use EMDR therapy to help people make sense of their past losses so they can live more joyfully in the present. A certified facilitator of The Daring Way, I use the research published by Dr. Brené Brown to help people brave connection and claim their sense of worthiness and belonging.

From a culturally-informed, relational framework, I provide such therapies as CBT, CBT-Insomnia, CPT for PTSD, EMDR , and DBT.
Are you an "overthinker" or overachiever wanting to work through harsh attitudes you hold about yourself, or seeking to resolve pain from the past? Perhaps you need relief from intense worry, anxiety, PTSD/complex trauma, overwhelming emotions, depression, trouble sleeping, or nightmares. Or you might be seeking to grow as a person and needing to talk through the complexities of your most important relationships with someone trained to ask just the right questions. If these are the kinds of issues you’re grappling with now, therapy is a wonderful place to start, and one of the most meaningful investments you can make in yourself.

My specialty is PTSD and I primarily use EMDR (please Google EMDR if unfamiliar).
Hello, If you are looking for in-person (video sessions available) sessions and would like to talk to someone today, please call or send me an email. Typically, I am able to return your call or email within a day. I hear from patients all the time, that the hardest part to finding and connecting with a clinician is getting someone to take your call or call you back. I try to make connecting one of easier parts of therapy. I provide counseling services to individuals, couples, and families, and adopt an approach that is engaged and collaborative. I look forward to hearing from you.

With EMDR , I will help you process distressing events and reduce their power to trigger you.
Do your emotions feel out of control? Are you prone to feeling anxious and irritable? Do you tend to feel guilt and shame? Trauma, whether from the past or more recent, can show up in ways that are not that easy to recognize. In emotional survival mode, you can feel disconnected and alone, while also feeling resentful towards others in your personal life or in the workplace. In this difficult place, it’s common to try to distract from how you feel by turning to food, screens, shopping, and other people’s needs. The truth is, until you heal from trauma, you can’t feel truly free to live your life.

EMDR Therapists

Who is EMDR for?

EMDR was initially developed as a treatment for individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), for whom memories of a deeply distressing experience can be inadvertently triggered by random everyday events. The procedure has since been applied in the treatment of many other conditions. For example, it is used by some therapists to treat anxiety disorders including panic and phobias, depression, dissociative disorders, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, and some personality disorders. It is suitable for adolescents and adults.

Why do people need EMDR?

People need EMDR as a way to manage distressing memories that in some way hamper the ability to function in the present. The procedure is believed to target the way memories are stored in the brain. Evidence indicates that past disturbing experiences cause ongoing distress because they were not adequately processed, and when such memories are triggered in the present, they are accompanied by all the emotions, thoughts, and physical sensations as the initial experience.

What problems does EMDR treat?

First and foremost, EMDR is intended as a treatment for PTSD, to defuse distressing memories that intrude on and impair everyday functioning. It is also often used to help those who are subject to panic attacks, phobias, and other forms of anxiety. In addition, EMDR has been used to treat individuals with depression, eating disorders, and personality disorders.

What happens in EMDR therapy?

First the therapist takes an individual’s history, and then the therapist and client decide which distressing experience(s) will be the target(s) of the exercise, delivered via a side-to-side visual stimulus requiring lateral eye movements. The client will be asked to activate thoughts, feelings, and any body sensations related to the troubling experience. The eye movements are said to reduce the emotional charge of the memory, so that the experience can then be safely discussed with the therapist and digested, minimizing its ability to trigger anxiety.
