Both treatment methods are used in healing from trauma and helping clients let go of painful, negative thoughts of themselves.
Hi! I have been providing therapy in a wide array of settings for over ten years. I know coming to therapy is a difficult and often times scary process. It is important to me that I meet clients where they are at in the process and try my hardest to make the process feel as safe and comfortable as possible. For that reason, I offer both telehealth and face to face options.

I specialize in: Depression, Anxiety, Trauma & PTSD , Victims of Physical and Sexual Abuse, Relationship Problems.
I have seen people struggle for years with depression and/or anxiety caused by negative thoughts we have about ourselves from things we have been through in life, some things big and bad, others unintentional or seemingly benign. While we all experience challenges in life, you don't deserve to suffer and I can/want to help you find that relief. Medication helps, but is not the answer to long term recovery. Regular talk therapy can also be helpful, but often is not effective for recovery. EMDR therapy has been the most hopeful service for long term recovery I have found and the benefits can be physiologically understood.

I'm trained in TF-CBT (under 18) and EMDR, two different approaches that help alleviate the symptoms that trauma leaves behind.
You deserve to work with a therapist that is able to meet your needs, makes you feel comfortable and, let's be honest, is someone that you mesh with! The relationship between therapist and client is the core of the therapeutic process, when you connect with and trust in your therapist you are able to safely explore the things that brought you to therapy in the first place. I believe that you hold the answers to your questions and stressors and that it is my job to provide you with the tools to help uncover them.

Life can be challenging even in the best of circumstances. Perhaps you've felt more stressed lately; your relationships feel more strained; your alone time is more anxiety producing than relaxing; your job performance may be suffering. "Unless you learn to face your own shadows, you will continue to see them in others, because the world outside of you is only a reflection of the world inside of you." - Carl Jung.

Counseling can seem quite terrifying, sharing your heart and mind with a stranger in hopes of finding something better, something different. Whether you're struggling to find an identity in the chaos of life, anxious about tomorrow, or feeling stuck and hopeless, having your own personal GPS through a counseling relationship can make a huge difference between driving in circles or discovering vitality and joy in the journey. With a MA in Counseling specializing in trauma , a MA in Theology, and currently working on her PhD in Counseling Education, you can be sure to get the very best, up to date counseling available.

I use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) Mindfulness, CBT, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy treatment to help those suffering with PTSD e.
I work well with clients seeking help for problems with anxiety and depression. Those referred to me with these issues find that symptomatically they are struggling with panic, sleep disturbances, worry thoughts, self-defeating thoughts/behaviors, eating disorders,addictions and unknowingly, at times, some of their difficulties have been attached to old trauma . Many people with these sorts of struggles find that this spills over into problems with relationships and/or functioning at work and school. Areas of intimacy, both emotional and sexual are important work also. I work with individuals, married couples,families, and groups.
