As an EMDR clinician, I offer my clients a customized mix of psychotherapy and trauma focused treatment.
Today is your last day of scrolling through therapists. The last day of doubting yourself and the true intentions of everyone around you. You feel anxious all the time, completely exhausted, and you can’t remember the last time you truly felt connected to your emotions or felt really grounded in your body. You've always wondered how everyone else can live so carefree. Well, it’s your time now to experience the profound peace of finally releasing all of the things that are keeping you stuck. You're longing for someone to finally see the real you, someone with whom you can engage in life-changing, powerful therapeutic work together.

It wasn't supposed to be like this. You worked hard, you kept your eyes on the prize, you sacrificed, you never complained or made excuses. You had the work ethic, the grit, and the intelligence to overcome every challenge you faced. But for some reason that isn't working any more. You tell yourself to buckle down and power through, but you just...don't. You watch yourself drinking more, gaining weight, missing deadlines, lashing out at the people closest to you. It's all falling apart. You've outworked so many competitors and overcome so much, but now you're in a battle with yourself, and for the first time, you're losing.

I believe the greatest gift a therapist can offer is full presence with a compassionate ear. We all have different life characteristics, circumstances, and capacities that are continually changing. And we all continue to utilize internal and external resources to manage those changes. Sometimes, we just need a reminder and mindfulness companion. No matter what your life transitions are, I look forward to being a resource to you. In our therapy space, I will provide a safe space for you to bring your whole self. By attending to your thinking and feeling processes, we will support the development of new skills to add to your toolkit.

*Practice Currently Full* Life can feel really overwhelming at times, especially when you are trying to manage the daily grind, while also being present in your personal and professional relationships. When you have a busy and demanding life your personal relationships often take a back burner and it’s hard to deal with problems effectively in the moment. Sometimes it’s easier to numb out with unhealthy habits like over drinking, over or undereating, scrolling social media, or overworking. But, eventually these habits leave you feeling more stressed and disconnected, and problems that once appeared small snowball into larger issues.

I believe that relationships determine a lot about how we interact with the world - in both helpful and less helpful ways. Our behaviors, attitudes, thoughts, feelings, and relationship styles are reinforced over time by our experiences, families, partners, environments, and culture. Psychotherapy can help when stress, trauma, life transitions, or difficult relationships call for new ways of coping and navigating our lives.
