I help children, adolescents, and adults alike. I help individuals make connections to their past experiences and their current struggles to resolve past trauma and improve current day functioning. Helping someone set down the shame of their trauma and work to have a different relationship with those memories is an honor and a privilege.

Are you feeling uncertain and stuck? When terrible events or experiences happen in our lives, trauma is the emotional response that happens in our bodies. This could be a physical trauma such as a car accident, rape, physical abuse, or a natural disaster. There is also emotional trauma can be caused by emotional abuse, humiliation, and even grief. EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. This therapy is one of the most effective ways to treat trauma as it engages both sides of the brain and allows the trauma memory to be properly processed in the body.
