In individual therapy I often use EMDR , parts work and expressive therapy tools and have a specialization in working with trauma.
As a relationally focused and trauma informed therapist, I have a passion for helping clients feel more connected, grounded and safe in their lives and relationships. Every person has the ability to move toward connection and healing, even in the face of difficult, challenging or traumatic experiences. I work with couples, individuals and families to help them reconnect with the healthiest and most grounded parts of themselves and to restore and rebuild connection and safety within themselves and with others. I use research based, experiential models to keep us focus on your goals and healing process.

I often use EMDR to address these issues.
I believe that even in the darkest seasons, we contain within ourselves the seeds of healing, change and growth. However, we often need someone to walk alongside us to ask good questions, offer perspective, and cheer us on. I love listening to people’s stories in order to help them untangle the different threads and consider the impact their past is having on their emotions and behavior in the present.

I integrate evidence-based cognitive and behavioral techniques and mind-body approaches (CBT, EMDR , Brainspotting, and mindfulness) to address not only symptoms but also the core of why this event stayed with you.
Finding a therapist can be tough. Perhaps you feel overwhelmed. Maybe life has thrown more at you than you think you can handle, or your usual coping strategies are failing. Using humor and a collaborative approach, we can tackle these challenges together. Drawing on your own innate resilience and capacity to change, I hope to give confidence to the belief that change is possible and that you can feel better.

EMDR therapy is a research-backed approach useful for many people.
Trauma changes us and the way we see the world. In fact it takes things away from us that we really want. Surviving trauma makes clients resilient, but can leave them feeling disconnected from themselves and the world. Their struggles may look like anxiety, depression, avoidance, chronic physical illness, loss of sense of self or grief that does not go away. I am specialized in EMDR trauma therapy and Mindfulness-Holistic Psychotherapy. I work with adults who need support with trauma connected to complex grief, divorce, disruptive family relationships/attachments, sexual trauma, childhood abuse, or other stressful life transitions.

*At this time, I am only accepting new clients for EMDR treatment* Are you struggling with processing past traumatic events? EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. EMDR provides a proven approach to address the symptoms of trauma that can interfere with thriving in your everyday life. EMDR allows individuals to process incredible amounts of material in a shockingly short time.

My training has primarily been psychodynamic and thus I believe our past has an impact on our present, however I draw on other approaches as needed including EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing).
Anxiety and depression are concerns for people of all ages and frequently contribute to feelings of stress. I work closely with individuals whose struggles are getting in the way of developing safe, loving relationships and achieving objectives as well as those who are facing major life transition and feeling overwhelmed. Providing a warm, supportive relationship, I work with clients to identify and change patterns of behavior that are troubling them. For all of us, within the context of major stressors and recent or distant traumas, opportunities are present for identifying and building on our strengths.

In addition to psychodynamically oriented talk therapy, I integrate mindfulness, trauma informed approaches, somatic imagery, and EMDR , all depending on your individual needs.
There are times that you might feel stuck in patterns that make life feel unsatisfying and empty. Maybe you feel depressed, anxious or in chronic pain. You may be negotiating a relationship or trying to adjust to a new job. Psychotherapy allows you the space to understand how your past and present intersect and what gets in the way of living life to your fullest while also helping you to tap into your inner resources. My approach is collaborative, thus giving you the space to reflect carefully. I work with you to develop better coping skills and help you to understand & manage complex feelings of anxiety or sadness.

I have advanced training in EMDR , an effective and evidence-based approach that includes elements of somatic therapy, cognitive therapy, and mindfulness.
If you’re struggling with chronic anxiety, depression or addictive and dissociative behaviors, they may be rooted in unprocessed traumatic experiences. Growing up in a home where you’ve had your needs shamed or ignored creates attachment and developmental wounds that are often the root cause of feeling unworthy, anxious, or unable to identify and express your needs. Ironically, the unconscious strategies that we employ to protect ourselves from emotional pain can manifest themselves as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, lack of connection in relationships, and a variety of addictive and avoidant behaviors, including dissociation.

I use the Enneagram personality assessment with most clients and offer EMDR , a short-term modality that helps process traumatic experiences, often with immediate, lasting results.
Whether in person or via telehealth during the pandemic, I am passionate about helping people facing relationship struggles that manifest as anxiety, depression, and difficulty with intimacy. My experience and training (EFT: Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy, Imago, PACT) taught me that most emotional challenges are tied to how we function in our personal relationships. I've been told that my real strength is helping people feel safe and reflective enough to recognize, think through, and either accept or change the way they approach the relationships that matter most.

EMDR Therapists

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.
