About

Your life is an ongoing journey and it's time to make yourself a priority. Are you not living the life you dreamed of? Or do you often feel frustrated that your relationships, home life, and career are less than satisfying? Have you ever wondered what is stopping you from feeling happier, more confident, and in control of your future? We live in a society so busy that we can barely hear ourselves think. Its rare that anyone feels truly heard and listened to. I can help you to learn to lead a more authentic, self-actualizing life that works for you. Perhaps you're looking to take steps towards healing, but are unsure where to start.
I offer an evidence based trauma treatment called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) which can be helpful when individuals feel stuck in areas of their lives. Through the utilization of EMDR, people are able to heal from their trauma and integrate their past and present, while envisioning a more hopeful future.
My clinical experience includes working with children, adolescents, and adults facing behavioral or mental health challenges. I have aided these individuals in working through suicidal ideation, self-harm, depression, anxiety and trauma. I also specialize in working with women, victims of domestic violence, interpersonal relationship conflicts, and PTSD.
