"Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways." I enjoy working with people in general- ages 10 years and older who are struggling to cope, adjust or heal from anxiety, depression, trauma, personality and/or family issues. I use a broad range of theory in practice to address client concerns and moving them into wellness.

EMDR therapy heals trauma -relational, simple or developmental. Jungian principles help to address states of consciousness and truama within session. Dialectical Behavioral therapy (DBT) to promote mindfulness, self regulation, coping and interpsonal skill development. Solutions focused brief therapy for adjustment disorders or short-term needs.Cognitive Behavioral therapy for processing, reframing negative or distorted habits.

I specialize in trauma and various disorders using EMDR 8 step protocol-EMDRIA approved.
