I enjoy working with individuals and couples who are curious and hungry for more connection to themselves and others in their lives. When you start therapy, I will talk with you about what brings you to therapy, the life you want to create and what you think holds you back. I will reflect with you on how it feels to be with and collaborate with you on your own thriving. You are likely to display the same intra- and inter-personal patterns with me that enhance or impede your progress in your relationships at work and home. Most of my clients start therapy because of depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties and work challenges.

In addition to EMDR, I also help clients overcome issues related to anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and relationship conflict utilizing Mindfulness based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (mbCBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, and attachment informed Mentalization Based Treatment (MBT).
A lot of our psychological pain is rooted in past traumatic experiences. When we experience trauma, memories of these events remain with us as unprocessed memories, affecting our moods, behaviors, sense of self, and our body. As a Holistic Psychotherapist specializing in EMDR, I empower my clients to create impactful change in their lives by helping them gain insight into themselves/others and overcome their limiting beliefs through processing these difficult memories. Healing from trauma can be hard work but I am with my clients every step of the way and provide them the skills and resources that they need.

Within the accepting, compassionate context of the therapeutic relationship, I use gentle challenge to help reveal maladaptive thoughts and unhealthy behaviors.
In my 20 years of clinical, academic, and advocacy experience, I have worked with clients who present with a wide range of issues. I specialize in recovery from trauma (particularly childhood abuse/neglect, sexual assault and domestic violence), successful movement through life transitions (young adulthood, career, parenthood, mid-life and loss), and repair of interpersonal relationships (including a specialty in couples therapy). I have advanced training in both trauma treatment and couples therapy, which uniquely positions me to treat couples where one or both partners have a trauma history.

I specialize in working with trauma survivors, and haved developed a specific expertise with couples where one or both individuals have been impacted by trauma.
I believe each individual is the expert on his or her life and experiences. As a therapist, it is my goal to tap into that and add my own skills, insights and techniques that have helped many others. Working together, we can find solutions to the problems or situations causing stress. I find that, for most of my clients, therapy is a short-term need. You can then use your new skills in similar situations that arise in the future. My goal is to have you leave therapy with a range of tools that work for you.

I am specifically trained and supervised with an expertise in working with individuals, couples and group (families) to support the needs and situation of each client.

Whether you're looking to explore complex, deep-seated issues or need a supportive person and space in your life, I provide a safe, accepting, non-judgmental space for you to get the help you need. Processing painful experiences and emotions can be challenging, though I am committed to working collaboratively and supporting clients in becoming healthier and creating more rewarding and fulfilling relationships.

Imago relationship therapy interests me because of the nuanced manner in which it uses a structured approach towards healing and wholeness.
I believe that one of the ways in which self-awareness is achieved is through the sharing of one's story. Therefore, I strive diligently to create a safe space for one to share both the beauty and the brokenness of one's story with authenticity, genuineness, and integrity. When appropriate, I infuse spirituality and religion into my therapeutic practice; thus enabling my clients to articulate their feelings of dis-ease within the context of their faith. I have found this approach to be particularly effective in working with populations marginalized because of race, gender, or sexual orientation.
