"I specialize in the treatment of trauma. My approach moves beyond being an empathetic listener to using state-of-the-art, evidenced-based strategies for creating relief and change. I have found EMDR Therapy to be a powerful, neurologically-based approach to address memories that have become "stuck". These frozen memories can be either severe traumas (abuse, rape, or life-threatening injury) or small but significant adverse life events. EMDR can effectively resolve memories that have made the past feel very much present and have forced current life experiences to be filtered through a negative, distorted lense."

Anxiety and depression seem to be the norm, and disconnection from our true nature seems to perpetuate the suffering. What if it doesn’t have to be this way?
