I specialize in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy ( trauma and various DSM-IV diagnoses), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (Borderline Personality Disorder and other diagnoses), and psychological assessment (to clarify appropriate diagnosis given current symptoms).
I work with clients of all ages. I feel that it is very important for prospective clients to get the correct diagnosis the first time in order to develop a well suited treatment plan. If psychological testing is warranted, I am an effective and efficient evaluator that will focus on the appropriate treatment to get you on your way faster. My goal is to empower each person I come in contact with and to help them realize their potential.

I enjoy working with individuals that are ready to do something different. Often a person gets stuck in feeling the insanity of doing the same thing over and over again waiting for things to change. Only by making a change in your behavior can you expect a different outcome, some people need support to make a change that is lasting.

My 22 years of experience can help to empower you with the coping skills you need to face the aftermath of trauma , anxiety, family, marital, parenting, and acculturation issues.
Life isn't easy and we are not born all knowing. Throughout our life span, we face exciting and terrifying situations that impact the way we function every day and how we interact with others. Then, we feel like we are the only ones suffering, and feelings of loneliness emerge. Our first reaction is to hide and portray that we are doing fine. Then we try dealing with the problem on our own. Later, we find ourselves feeling overwhelmed. We start experiencing extreme difficulties just trying to deal with simple daily life tasks. This is where I come in!

I have concentrated my post graduation studies in the area of trauma and neurobiology.
Available in person and online. Feeling a little overwhelmed, stressed, anxious, depressed, and tired, ...? You're not alone. In this day and age we are consumed with incoming information from our environment, but our brains are not equipped with the processing speeds of a computer so we end up feeling overwhelmed and symptomatic. If your goal is to reduce symptoms and find some peace, I can help you to achieve this. I utilize current brain research with evidence-based practices to provide you with knowledge, support and motivation to live a more enjoyable and meaningful life.

My ideal client would be someone who is open to the idea of change. Perhaps the client is someone struggling with trauma such as previous abuse or neglect. This client may have been exposed to domestic violence. My ideal client may also be strugging with daily stressors or school related functioning. The client may be a family in need of better communication. The Pandemic has changed so many things in our society. More than ever our Mental Health should be front and center. Careers, family, finances, and education are just as important as they always have been. We are moving forward! Moving forward together!
