I am a Licensed and Nationally Certified Professional Counselor who specializes in the treatment of adults, teens and adolescents who struggle with depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, and life transitions. My role is to help individuals find their voice in order to fight against shame through empowerment and self-exploration. I believe that counseling can be a safe place to begin this healing through an integrated approach that addresses the mind, body, and spirit.

I am trained in EMDR trauma therapy which is a specialty therapy where one is completely conscious and in charge and is able through the strength of the mind to desensitize and reprocess memories that affect us in the present. www.emdria.org. I am also trained in CBT and DBT skills, trauma-informed care, and mindfulness techniques.

I currently accept Anthem insurance in network, out of network insurance plans that will sometimes reimburse, and self pay. I have openings for appointments during the day and evening hours. Please call or email me for more information. It would be my honor to join you on this journey. I look forward to hearing from you!
