I have specialty training in Trauma -Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and the practice and use of mindfulness strategies. I have seen and experienced the process of trauma recovery and can understand the various levels trauma can impact people's lives.

Whether you have anxiety, addiction, depression, life changes, fears, mood disorders or trauma , you deserve to be a complete person again.
If you are like most people who come to therapy, you've probably felt like you've been running in circles for a long time. Dealing with the same feelings, thoughts, memories, and worries over and over again. In the meantime, you've noticed your life passing you by. What if you could start your life TODAY? What if you don't have to wait? Healing comes from the Latin word for 'wholeness.' To heal is to become whole again. We believe within the pain of suffering can lay our greatest strengths. And there is no part of you that deserves to be cast aside. We don't focus on changing who you are, but on creating the life that you want.

I am a Limited Licensed Psychologist specializing in EMDR Therapy.  I use EMDR to treat the impacts of traumatic events, PTSD , grief, anger, and addictions including substance and sexual addictions. I primarily work with Veterans and First Responders, and individuals on the front lines of taking care of others. When you face the dangers of the world head-on on a daily basis, asking for help may feel counterintuitive. At the same time, avoiding problems, thinking they will get better on their own, or denial of their existance (despite the evidence) is a guaranteed path to less-than-ideal outcomes.

We choose to collaborate with the client, be accessible with text support in between sessions, and take the whole person into consideration when working with them (ie lifestyle, trauma , sleep, nutrition, medication management) etc.
We go to doctors for check-ups, but we sometimes leave our mental health for last on our list:) I believe therapy should be fun and enlightening, highlighting what strengths you already possess to help you with life's barriers. Combined with my education, humor and understanding of human behavior, your goals can be met in a brief, focused amount of time.

I support the client on their path to success, providing empathy, acceptance for who they are and where they are, while offering a non-judgmental orientation. I encourage the client with the freedom to explore thoughts, feelings, and life experiences in our time together.

It’s easy to feel hopeless and overwhelmed when everyday is marked by constant worry. It can seem like no matter what new trick you read about you can’t kick the worry to the curb. It’s been months, maybe even years, and the burden of it feels too much to carry.  You worry about friendships, social interactions, worst cast scenarios, having a panic attack in public and you try to look like you have it all together.  It's likely that everyone believes that you do have it all together. You have gotten pretty good at wearing that mask over the years, but you're tired of playing that role. I believe we can work together to heal.

Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, or a trauma (or many), I believe in creating an environment that feels safe for you; an environment which dismantles shame and turns it into courage, empowering you to live a more fulfilling life.
Mind, Body, and Spirit; all are important aspects of overall well-being and at some point in our lives, we all experience one, two, or all three areas becoming misaligned. The solution then is to find balance once again…and that is where I come in. Whether you are looking to change the thoughts and beliefs you have about yourself (mind), relieve bodily symptoms that have no medical explanation (body), or get connect to your higher self (spirit), I am here to help guide you to realignment. **Email/text are the easiest ways to get ahold of me as I am often in session**
