About

I believe that I work well with clients that want change and want to feel better. I work best with clients who want a therapist who gives results - a therapist that can provide a safe, confidential, and provides evidence-based treatments that work. I will provide a nurturing, safe space where the client is validated and accepted where they are" ( struggling with rage, anger, sadness, anxiety or depression). Clients want results and I provide those results by providing the opportunity to learn about self, coping skills, and how to be more self-compassionate instead of getting stuck in self-shaming or self-criticism.
With adults, I utilize many evidence-based treatments. I utilize EMDR, expressive art, Sensorimotor psychotherapy, Sandtray therapy is a treatment used with all ages. Sandtray therapy and EMDR therapy allows the client, to access painful memories in the right side of the brain (where it is stored),
I understand how difficult it can be to begin this healing journey. I have 21- years of experience in treating trauma. I promise to provide you with a safe and healing space to learn about yourself and grow. I will provide evidence-based treatments and you are part of the treatment team, as you know yourself best.
