About

Some of us experience extremely challenging, even terrible things in life, or we are not able to get over the pain or losses we have experienced in the past. I have studied and trained in the treatment of traumatic disturbances for over a decade and am passionate about helping people resolve symptoms that include: reliving or avoiding memories, negative moods and thoughts, and sometimes "dissociation" (feeling detached from oneself and others). I offer an effective psychotherapy method known as EMDR for addressing such symptoms, along with a compassionate, culturally sensitive approach to issues.
I work with victims of violence and accidents, veterans, those suffering from childhood trauma, and other disturbances. Using EMDR, CBT, mindfulness and compassion-based interventions, I help my patients find relief from the effects of such painful events. Although we cannot erase our memory of a trauma, it is still possible to find peace from within.
It is a big step to seek out help with healing from a professional. Yet, the potential for healing is within all of us and we just need some guidance to find out how to do this. I invite you to reach out to me if you are curious to learn more about my approach to healing trauma and rediscovering a full life.
