Licensed Professional Counselor, MAAT, LPC, ATR-BC, EMDR-BC
I am an LPC with over 18 years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families. I enjoy working with clients of all ages who experience a variety of symptoms related to trauma, anxiety, depression, and attachment difficulties. I provide a relaxing and judgement free environment allowing my clients to feel comfortable sharing their experiences. I use an integrative approach with an emphasis on EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy. It is an evidence based model proven highly effective for treating symptoms of trauma, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, intense feelings, and mood changes.
My goal is to collaborate with you in working toward change. If you are an adult struggling with life changes or are dealing with difficult and stressful life situations, I would be happy to explore your needs with you.
As a parent, you are constantly facing new challenges - welcoming new children into the world, helping them be the best they can be, and trying to manage your life on top of all of that. Your relationship has fallen by the wayside. You're stressed to the max. You feel like all you're doing is yelling but no one is listening. Listen: it does not have to be this way if you don't want it to be. You deserve to enjoy parenthood, to love on that new baby, or enjoy hanging out with your teen. Not a parent but still struggling? Reach out and we will figure out how I can help
