I specialize in trauma therapy. I work people who have had a recent traumatic event and those who have a long history of traumatic events. I am trained in EMDR , a researched-based treatment that can greatly relieve the negative effects of traumatic experiences, depression and anxiety. PTSD is a treatable condition, not a lifetime burden! Through EMDR therapy you will make peace with your past and learn how to manage your feelings and emotions as they arise. I offer relaxation training, guided imagery, and mindfulness. I am comfortable working within your spiritual framework and your cultural background.

I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing ( EMDR ) and help clients resolve the effects of trauma.
I support families, couples, and individuals under stress. I work with clients to uncover contexts and patterns of thoughts and behaviors that are causing distress, as well as formulate strategies that lead to visible change. Often, you as the client already know the "answers" but could use support in living those answers out. The end goal is growth; the client should be able to look back at our work together and see a difference.

I am trained in EMDR and enjoy working around trauma histories with those ready to explore painful pasts and find self-understanding and liberation in the present.
I work from a systemic & justice-oriented framework, and utilize evidence-based therapeutic approaches as well as psychodynamic principles. This means my passion in treatment is to create a collaborative relationship built on authenticity, hope, and safety to make space for you to be your whole self and access healing from past experiences. I believe in the power of integration- that all parts of you deserve love and compassion. Together, we will address feelings, needs, beliefs, and the body's own wisdom, while also seeing issues in the context of the systems in which you exist.

I am also EMDR trained and certified in perinatal mental health.
As a therapist, it is my passion to help women find the healing and change they desire. In a warm and non-judgmental space, I draw from a psychodynamic approach to help you develop awareness of hidden beliefs and how these beliefs drive emotion and behavior. It is my desire to help you become your most authentic self, so that you can lead a more enriched, fulfilled life. I will work with you to build upon already present inner strength so that you can achieve the change, healing, and growth you desire.

I bring 25 years of experience in using the effective and compassionate approaches of EMDR , Internal Family Systems, Gestalt and Hakomi Somatics to heal trauma, grief, stresses of illness, depression, anxiety and relationship difficulties. I see my work as helping you bring clarity out of confusion by understanding the dynamic issues that hold you back and thus influence your future planning. This often results in reclaiming parts of yourself in order to come into your inherent wholeness. I adapt a unique blend of body/mind approaches to your specific needs, at a pace that's comfortable for you.

Angry, anxious, confused, or depressed because of relationship problems? Feel your partner never listens to you? Keep having the same old fights over and over? Imago Relationship Therapy is very helpful in restoring connection, safety, and romance. As a Certified Imago Therapist I enable each partner to be heard and understood so the needs of each can be met. Usually couples experience some immediate relief from the pain of alienation and begin to rediscover the love that brought them together. If your spouse won't come for counseling, come alone! I also do individual therapy, including EMDR for trauma resolution..

I have spent the last 13 years becoming formally trained in therapeutic models that are both restorative and result producing (Internal Family Systems, Somatic Internal Family Systems, EMDR , Art Therapy).
When we are able to truly understand ourselves and our relationships, we can build a life of genuine meaning and connection. Many people enter into therapy only to find themselves gaining small amounts of insight that produce little or no changes in their life. My therapeutic methods produce results that not only change the way we feel about ourselves in the world but change our behaviors. I am respectful of the fact that everyone's pace and tolerance to different interventions varies. My work is reflective of the care and respect I have for each and every client as individuals.

I am a EMDR trained Perinatal Mental Health Certified clinician.
As a clinician, I aim to provide space for people to mindfully connect with their values in order to develop a more fulfilling and values-driven approach to life. My goal is to help each client start making progress starting with their very first session. We may not solve all of your concerns in one session, of course, however, we can assess, start formulating a plan, and begin the process to help you achieve your therapeutic goals. I believe psychotherapy works best when a collaborative and trusting relationship serves as its foundation, and this is what I aim to foster with all clients.

My go-to therapies are ACT, CBT, DBT, and EMDR .
Starting to see a new therapist — or your very first therapist — can be a confusing, daunting process. I get how uncomfortable it feels to be vulnerable with someone you don’t know yet, and I’m committed to honoring the bravery it takes to do that. I’m all about approaching my clients from an accepting, compassionate, and nonjudgmental place. At the same time, I believe truly caring about my clients means helping them see where change is necessary to live more fulfilling, values-driven lives.

I've developed skill in many different treatment approaches for anxiety, depression and other problems, such as EMDR , CBT, relaxation and mindfulness training.
Life can be stressful particularly in these unpredictable times. You may be finding that worries are hard to turn off during the day and also keep you up at night. Perhaps you are becoming irritable with your family, friends or coworkers. Or rather than feeling anxious you might be noticing that you are often tired. You might have less interest in attending the extended family party or going out with your partner. I can help you to get a handle on your worries, regain energy, and to feel more grounded and able to manage what comes your way.

We are trained in doing EMDR for trauma issues.
Our life's work is helping clients achieve a better sense of self and happiness...more recently we've recognized that without good mental health providers finding this balance in life can be more difficult and stressful. As a result, we tend toward and Integrative approach and have our clients transform into the people they want to be. We see each client as an individual with many parts to their identity. Utilizing a holistic and systemic approach we help clients reintegrate the parts of themselves to function better as individuals and within their systems. Our focus tends toward a systems-based approach using behavior methods.

I also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).
Treatment is about promoting change, and this change must come from within. I ask a great deal from clients when I ask them to change; this journey requires both the client and myself to work collaboratively and deeply. While my therapeutic approach is greatly influenced by psychoanalysis and relational therapy, I also employ aspects of Dialectical Behavior Therapy, specifically, the principle of radical genuineness to build rapport with my clients. I aim to provide my clients the space to explore underlying feelings, thought processes and behaviors, and the support needed to engage with the therapy process.

EMDR Therapists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.
