"Do you tell yourself that next time will be different, only to find yourself stuck have the same difficulties again and again? Have you spent countless time and money on feeling better, but still can't make the changes you long for? Have you heard that you simply need to "have a better attitude," "think positive," or "make better choices"? Sometimes it's not that simple. That's why my approach takes the many complex parts of you into account: your body, mind, emotions, and the younger ways of being "you" that show up as you move through the world."

"I am an EMDR trained therapist. EMDR is an evidence-based therapy/treatment, which allows us to process trauma that has become/remained “stuck” in a part of our brain. EMDR removes this obstacle, which then allows us to move towards emotional well-being. My priority, as a therapist, is to create a secure and comfortable environment for each one of my clients, by listening carefully to their specific story, experiences and goals. I recognize that building trust between myself and my clients is at the core of being able to work together, and that the length of time it takes for every person to establish trust varies. "
