My clients often start from a place of anxiety, sadness, feeling overwhelmed with the demands of daily life. Through our work, they learn to manage their emotions, find resources within themselves to sort out issues and move through their lives with new skills. We clear traumas from childhood and adulthood, leaving them feeling lighter, happier. I integrate the perspective of resiliency and take a strength-based approach to inspire change. It is not so much what happens in life as how we respond to life events that shapes our future. Through our work together, you can experience an improved quality of life.
I specialize in trauma work and have been trained in EMDR and Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). These are evidence based, effective protocols. A single traumatic event can be resolved in from one to five sessions. The event is not forgotten, but it no longer carries any emotional reaction.
We can work together to get you to a better place, to build happiness and fulfillment into your life. Life is about the journey and each of us can build the life we choose through self awareness and effort. I honor each individual's journey and tailor interventions to your needs and goals.

I use a variety of therapeutic approaches, to fit the individual client needs.
