I'm a doctoral candidate who has earned a master's degree in clinical mental health care and am a professional counselor, clinician, therapist. I am EMDR Trained. I provide talk therapy to adolescents, adults, seniors, families, and groups. Cognitive behavioral therapy is used initially to address client/participant situations and circumstances, to regain functionality, stabilize addictive behaviors and promote safety in an encouraging environment.

Eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR), is used to address complex trauma, and triggers.

We provide two locations for client/participant convenience.
