About

As a trauma informed clinician, I am always considering the background and belief system of the individuals I work with. It is important to me to be sincere, honest and authentic in order to enhance the therapeutic relationship. I greatly believe in the value and strength of the individual, couple, family & group. I have learned through experience that therapeutic change is not linear and requires flexibility, humor and patience.
My strengths lie in working with sexuality/sexual concerns, strong/passionate personalities, individuals with trauma history, divorce/separation and prenatal/postpartum individual. I use evidence based and creative modalities such as DBT& EMDR as well as with a strong therapeutic alliance, we can take steps together to reduce distress in all areas of life.
I offer daytime and evening appointment times for your convenience. I believe in acceptance being the first piece to change. I accept you where you are and want to do anything I can to welcome you to take that first step.
