I am trained in the use of the Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS) and currently engaged in a training/certification process and am able to offer EMDR therapy.
Clients who work with me are tired of experiencing life with anxiety and depression; they recognize that a change is necessary, and they're ready to engage. Their goals may include the need to experience joy, hope, love, respect and success. Often, they struggle building successful close and intimate relationships, communicating their needs, and/or or achieving academic and career success - in other words, life goals.

I believe in an eclectic approach, utilizing EMDR, Sandplay, Spirituality, Body work, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Feminine Psychology to help my clients.
I am a therapist who believes strongly that talk therapy sometimes just isn't enough. Sometimes when a person experiences difficulties in life, their defenses can often get in the way. This is especially true when you are a child, have experienced trauma, or struggle with Eating Disorders. Sandplay therapy and other approaches can help break-down those barriers and promote healing.
