I often work with veterans and first responders, but have recently discovered my passion for providing support to service members as they transition out of the military (Medical Board process, etc) as well.
I work with individuals seeking to become more empowered by healing unresolved trauma and reconnecting to SELF. Often it's not what happens in our lives, but the ways that we abandon ourselves to survive it that causes the most pain. Healing is the journey home to yourself- even if you've never been there before. It is a combination of discovering, remembering, and creating yourself and your life simultaneously; and only you can decide how that looks. I use EMDR and parts work (IFS) with clients, and often incorporate journaling, art, and somatic/embodiment practices.

As someone who's experienced their own trauma in the military , BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ communities, life is hard.
Never feeling good enough is so DAMN hard! Doubting yourself at every turn, questioning every decision you make, and finding yourself in unhealthy, painful relationships has been the story of your life so far. You're struggling and you want connection, but you don't know how to ask for help. You may be reaching out for support in the wrong places like FB or Instagram. Sweeping things under the rug hasn't been working. You may have been told that you have to be strong all the time and that asking for help is a weakness. I'm here to tell you that's bullshit, and that Therapy Is DOPE! Therapy is so much more than talking.

My Clinical internship was spent in a substance abuse/mental health facility in South Florida, where I worked with military and veteran clients.
As social beings, people need the contact and acceptance of other people. It is not uncommon for people to experience things that disrupt or unravel their lives, and they feel they have no one to turn to who understands or accepts them. Whether this experience is anxiety, depression, stress, life changes, or trauma, my passion is to help individuals find healthy ways of coping and processing the events in their lives. As well as helping people connect with others in more meaningful ways.

I specialize in recovery from trauma - military , and civilian.
As an experiential psychotherapist, I join you in your life-in-progress to support your self-awareness, healing, and self-affirmative growth. I work with your whole person - body, mind, soul to reach what is your well and unique "me". Mood, relationship, work, health and life changes are my focus. Where others hone in on pathology, I value what's right about your intelligence, strategies and learning. I am a creative humanist. I use metaphor, humor and lived experience to re-convey you to you. I tailor my skills to each person/couple/family's needs, give you my perspectives, and support your way of thriving.

I offer diverse clinical experience that began in 2006 and spans non-profit, for-profit, military , and academic settings.
Change is a constant. Our ability to adapt isn't. There are times you need extra support to adjust to challenging situations, heal past hurt, cope with family and relationship issues, or learn new skills to increase your resiliency. I work with adults of all ages who have a variety of goals. Together, we will work to define goals that are meaningful to you, and make a plan for how to achieve these goals. My hope is that our work together supports a sense of increased freedom and wellbeing for you.

I specialize in helping individuals (adults, seniors, male and female veterans and the family members of veterans ) who struggle with mental health and substance abuse issues.
My practice is not accepting new clients at this time. I commend you for being here. It takes courage and strength to ask for help. I believe as human beings we are resilient and often intuitively know what we need to do to heal. Unfortunately sometimes that healing can be thwarted by seemingly insurmountable barriers such as depression, anxiety, history of trauma, or substance abuse. Let's work together to create more effective coping skills so you may actually live, rather than just survive, your life. I find that the best results in treatment stem from focusing on people's strengths rather than their weaknesses.

I specialize in the treatment of trauma- and stress-related conditions, anxiety, depression, complicated grief, and Military -connected & First Responder issues.
Sometimes life hits us hard, and sometimes our best efforts to cope with life unknowingly hurt us more than help us, leaving us stuck in patterns, cycles, and symptoms that cause us to feel confused, overwhelmed, discouraged, and powerless. . . . But you don't have to stay stuck. I have been a licensed psychologist since 2003, and I offer evidence-based therapy tailored to meet your individual needs. My mission is to harness the power of EMDR Therapy to help clients address issues they want to see different, better, or changed, and my work with hundreds of clients has demonstrated change IS possible and relief IS within reach.

Do you feel as if your mind is constantly spinning? Are you avoiding or running from emotions and thoughts? Are you simply doing and not living? You are finally ready to unpack distressing things from your past. It has become clear that your past is not buried but may be contributing to your current feelings and experiences. Do you wish those old patterns would change for the better? Your way forward seems to be full of setbacks and you may have trouble moving forward. Looking at others you envy how easy their lives seem. You are a brave soul to be here and desire for things to be different. Now is the time.

We can adapt in the face of struggle for years before committing to therapy. Before now, perhaps you haven’t had the time, resources, or good fortune to connect deeply with an effective therapist. Or maybe your work-arounds aren’t working as well anymore. You know there’s got to be a better way, and you’re motivated for change. I help my clients understand and heal from their past, get relief from symptoms and unhelpful patterns, and find their way to genuine connection. This type of work can hurt, at times. Yet the long-term gains to your quality of life can be so worth it. I’ve seen it many times.

I know personally how hard it can be to experience sexual/physical/emotional trauma/addiction/depression/grief/financial/relational ruin/overwhelming anxiety. Hoping to get through a day with the jaw clenching/palm sweating/handshakes/thoughts racing/heart pounding/doubting every idea/thought/emotion, asking will this be forever? Sometimes, you experience paralyzing nightmares or dreams that you are moving in slow motion, and feel so alone and isolated when in a crowded room. Moreover, the constant dread (or what I call the invisible weighted depression blanket). I get it; I've lived it and worked with many others who have as well.

You have to be strong. All. The. Damn. Time. And that’s just become too much. Even for you. You have BIG feelings and may even cry when you’re alone, but hide them so the world can’t use them against you. You’re exhausted. But you can’t slow down for fear of what may happen if painful memories overwhelm you. Your internal voice is relentlessly mean and you want to shut it up, but you don’t even know if it’s possible to truly accept yourself. You know far too many people have too much access to your physical space or emotional energy, but you learned this is how to keep people around and saying “no” leaves you alone or rejected.
