The modalities I use include DBT, EMDR , person-centered, and strength-based approaches to help clients grow towards a lifestyle that feels more aligned with their values and beliefs.
As a therapist, my goal is to help guide clients through the uncomfortable and often painful process of making life changes and better understanding themselves. Many of my clients struggle with trauma that has kept them stuck in a cycle. I am here to help clients navigate through difficult feelings, relationships, and/or experiences and develop ways to live a healthier, happier lifestyle. Also, as an athlete and a coach, I have unique insight working with athletes of all ages and levels. In sports performance, unlocking the mental side of the sport and making it work for you can help you achieve your next level.

I am EMDR trained, and often use CBT and DBT skills to improve functioning.
Being a human can be difficult and sometimes we need help along the way to get unstuck. Seeking therapy is a vital first step to healing. In therapy, I will walk with you to aid you in bettering yourself and overcoming your struggles by developing healthy coping skills, challenging unhelpful beliefs about yourself, and accepting you where you are in your journey. I use a non-judgmental, collaborative approach to create a safe space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I seek to understand, accept, and facilitate change using an approach that best fits your needs.

Overwhelmed? Everyone needs help occasionally through life transitions. Do you have trouble saying no? Do you feel like you do not value yourself enough or have difficulty setting boundaries? Do you have traumatic or abusive experiences (or episodes of panic)? Do you overanalyze things? I have extensive helping experience with these and other issues. I work to get to the root of these issues.

I have additional training as a Certified Financial Therapist and EMDR .
Relationships can be hard sometimes! What stinks more is that most of us don’t really know what we are doing in them. We try to make things better, but that sometimes has the opposite effect we want it to. Maybe certain topics (sex and money to name my favorite two!) make you feel sick to your stomach. If you get nothing else from reading this, I want you to know you aren’t alone in this and I’m proud of you for looking for help! While many of us struggle with relationship dynamics at some point, occasionally you just need extra help. By addressing unspoken emotions, you can create a new life with your partner and yourself.

I am EMDR trained and work with trauma and negative memories.
Maybe you’ve tried everything. You’ve spent the last of your energy and hope. It feels like depression and anxiety are winning. Or drugs or alcohol are taking over. It’s a scary place to be. And can feel lonely. But you don’t have to be alone. I work with clients in this scary place and am unafraid to step into these challenges with you. You already have the strength and courage to do this. I can help you find your own way to make different choices for yourself and make your situation better.

The foundation for my work with clients is CBT however, I am trained in EMDR , ERP and CBT-E to help the people I enjoy working with best.
I have been a practicing clinical social worker for the past eight years, and I firmly hold the belief that meeting my clients where they're at is essential to helping them improve. It's for this reason that my ideal client is someone who desires an understanding of their mental health condition, is ready to make changes, and understands that therapy is a process and they're willing to take that journey together. I work best with people who would like help with treating a range of Eating Disorders, Obsessive and Compulsive Disorders, and Mood Disorders such as anxiety and depression.

I am trained in EMDR , one of the most widely-investigated treatments.
*Not currently accepting new clients* I believe the most important principles of therapy are humor, compassion and education. I am committed to helping you experience positive change, improve relationships, and gain a greater sense of personal strength and growth so you can better enjoy each day. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?

Through various methods (including EMDR & Internal Family systems) we also help clients heal from trauma and other emotional wounds.
The focus of my work is helping men and women who are struggling with intimacy disorders and compulsive sexual/relationship behaviors (also known as sex, porn or love addiction) that have had negative impacts on a person's relationships, overall emotional well being, health, family, career and other aspects of life. Struggles with sexuality can involve a great deal of pain, guilt and shame. If this is your experience, finding a professional who can provide a safe and non-judgemental space is crucial. In addition, I work with individuals who experience difficulties creating and maintaining intimate connections in relationships.

EMDR Therapists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.
