I offer an atmosphere of respect and acceptance for clients. My clients have a variety of presenting challenges, such as anxiety, depression, chronic pain, stress, relationship struggles, or people who feel dissatisfied with life in general. My goal with clients is to find and heal earlier life circumstances that are the root cause of their struggles. I use EMDR and Somatic Experiencing, two powerful approaches to resolve trauma and stress. I also use DDP, an excellent approach to help children resolve attachment difficulties. I believe resolving events from the past gives clients the best possibility of living a vibrant and happy life.

In addition to resolving the past, it's also important to develop a positive mindset in order to have a good sense of wellbeing. Commonly, people who have been through negative experiences see the glass as half empty. I work with people to simultaneously heal from the past and develop a positive view of life.

I am very passionate about helping people to live the life they desire. I engage in a great deal of continuing education so that I can bring effective treatment methods into my work.
