THERAPY WORKS. IT CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Will it work for you? It depends. Y'ever wonder why you're not where you want to be in your life - why things aren't turning out as planned? Image that changing. I have opinions and theories, and I'm willing to share them with you fairly early on. I'm not just going to watch you make the same mistakes over and over again without saying something to you. I won't make your decisions for you, but I will help you examine consequences and encourage you to make better choices.

I am trained in EMDR therapy, which is designed to reduce the emotional intensity attached to the disturbing memories through the use of eye movements or tapping, resulting in a reduction of symptomology.
Trauma, anxiety, and addiction can make you feel stuck. The most important step towards healing is to address the unresolved emotion inside you. Healing requires feelings. Acceptance slowly dissolves pain. When we function from the fear and scarring of our trauma, the cycles continue until we learn how to transmute that energy into love. I apply a Holistic approach that integrates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual forms of well-being, addressing the “whole” self. Through a holistic framework tailored to your unique needs, the goal is to support you develop a deeper understanding of the self on all these levels.

Incorporating a whole person approach to healing, we will use mind-body therapies, like Brainspotting, EMDR , Somatic Experiencing, and Art Therapy to get out of your head and heal the root of your emotional pain.
This can’t be your life! You expend all your energy worrying about the needs of others, the never-ending demands of your job, and striving to meet an unreachable standard. The tension that plagues your mind and body refuses to be ignored. Intuitively, you know something’s not right. You know how to get things done. That’s what propelled you into the status you proudly earned. But keeping this pace is draining everything out of you. Now you’re the micro-manager, clinging to control, scared to let go. You’re an emotional baggage claim, harboring all the emotions you never processed. You resent feeling this way. It's time for a change.

EMDR Therapists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.
