About

Life can be challenging. I'd be honored to help you in your life journey by providing the empathic, non-judgemental support, and tools, that can empower you to move forward in your life. I have been in practice for more than 12 years and work with adult individuals struggling with a variety of issues. I'm certified in EMDR, a powerful evidence-based therapy that works to heal various types of traumas and other troubling life experiences. EMDR can also be very helpful with behaviors or thought patterns that seem to persist even when you have consciously tried to step out of them. I'm also a certified life coach.
I hold a master's degree in mental health counseling, am board-certified, have a certification in professional life coaching, and certification in EMDR therapy. I use an integrated, compassionate strength-based approach to address issues. I'm passionate about empowering people to find peace, freedom, and balance even amidst challenging life circumstances.
The combination of my professional trauma training, 12 years of experience, and my life coaching training adds a unique and encouraging aspect to our counseling sessions. My clients say they feel unconditional acceptance and benefit immensely from the non-judgmental safe space they experience in session. I hope I can be a part of your healing journey.
