Announcement icon We are still open and taking clients for remote sessions as well as in person appointments as needed! We are here to help you through this!
I am a licensed professional counselor who specializes in the treatment of adults and adolescents who struggle with depression, anxiety, trauma, and stress. My role is to help individuals find their voice 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, we are able to move towards our hopes and desires, no longer stuck.
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 skills, trauma-informed care, and mindfulness techniques.
I currently accept Anthem and United Healthcare (non-UMR) insurances 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!
