I have specialized training and experience working with trauma, and can help you increase understanding and coping skills to manage triggers and symptoms in order to build a sense of safety, or use EMDR to help you process events and beliefs keeping you stuck in the past so you can move forward when you feel ready to do so.
A therapy relationship is a real relationship, between equals. I take a collaborative approach, recognizing that people already know themselves, or have the potential to know themselves, better than anyone else, and yet we all have blind spots that can contribute to suffering. I work together with clients who are coping with depression, anxiety, difficult life transitions, trauma--both PTSD and complex PTSD, dissociative disorders, and self-harm behavior or other impulsive behaviors. I am intensively trained in DBT, and can teach you a variety of healthy coping skills to address any behavior or difficult emotions.

My area of specialized training is in EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and psychodynamic therapies.
Offering in-person and virtual sessions! I come with a curiosity about attachment and early stages of development. My treatment approach is to help restore connection to yourself and your relationships through psychodynamic and trauma-informed therapies. Many people share how their negative beliefs and emotional discomfort can “feel stuck” in their mind and nervous system. I work with clients to resolve present day problems and longstanding patterns in their lives (anxiety, phobias, PTSD, Depression and so on.) through the integration of mind, body and brain processing techniques.

From there, we’ll integrate cognitive behavioral strategies with EMDR to gain insights from the present to heal your old wounds once and for all.
You're passionate about justice and dignity for others, but you’re stumped on how to love yourself. And it's no wonder: our weight-centric culture chastises and shames you for your body with a mix of pity and disgust, as though your size is a personal moral failing. Over time, you’ve internalized this stigma and often treat yourself with the same level of contempt. You’ve developed terrible eating habits – either forbidding yourself nourishment or isolating in shame for binge eating. You’re treated like a pariah when seeking medical care, enduring anti-fat bias far more harmful than any presumed adverse effect of your weight itself.

I utilize ACT, CBT, and EMDR in therapy.
Welcome! My name is Mae and I am dually licensed as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Licensed Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LCADC). I obtained my first degree from the United States International University in Africa where I started my career as a therapist. I completed my second master’s degree from Walden University in the United States where I continue to practice as a clinician. I believe asking for help is a sign of strength, not weakness. It’s a sign of humility, not defeat. I strive to create an environment based on confidence - recognizing what it takes to bring a person into therapy.

My approach uses CBT, EMDR , psychodynamic and trauma-informed theory, and intersectional feminist principles to enhance well-being.
Finding a therapist can be difficult, especially when experiencing life challenges, symptoms of depression or anxiety, and/or other stressors. For those of us with marginalized identities, it is particularly important to identify safe places where we can explore and address these issues. I work to create an inclusive and collaborative therapeutic environment to promote healing.

EMDR : Memories of a traumatic event may appear not as a memory but as a cluster of symptoms.
LGBTQ+ Concerns: For those of us in the LGBTQ+ community, it can be challenging to find comfort and safety in a world that is often negating—and even hostile—toward queer people. Psychotherapy can provide a new sense of hope for each of us. Current research indicates that the single greatest factor leading to successful outcomes in therapy is the relationship between client and therapist. We can create a safe space together. I’ll work with you to create and foster a safe, compassionate, judgment-free therapeutic space for you to breathe, think, explore, and be heard.

Techniques you may experiment with in our work could include mindfulness, witnessing, walking sessions, personal narrative, psychoeducation, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, EMDR , Internal Family Systems, and somatic therapy.
I want you to have the best life imaginable: to live in a body that can feel what it feels and with a mind that can know what it knows. I believe we heal through connection and relationship; it is how we survive then thrive. Sometimes we need to make meaning of our experiences; sometimes we just want to manage or reduce unwanted symptoms and sometimes we need someone to simply be present- to sit and witness and listen or hold the silence. I hope you will find all these elements working with me and together we will walk the path to healing. Come in and let's explore together!

EMDR Therapists

Who is EMDR for?

EMDR was initially developed as a treatment for individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), for whom memories of a deeply distressing experience can be inadvertently triggered by random everyday events. The procedure has since been applied in the treatment of many other conditions. For example, it is used by some therapists to treat anxiety disorders including panic and phobias, depression, dissociative disorders, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, and some personality disorders. It is suitable for adolescents and adults.

Why do people need EMDR?

People need EMDR as a way to manage distressing memories that in some way hamper the ability to function in the present. The procedure is believed to target the way memories are stored in the brain. Evidence indicates that past disturbing experiences cause ongoing distress because they were not adequately processed, and when such memories are triggered in the present, they are accompanied by all the emotions, thoughts, and physical sensations as the initial experience.

What problems does EMDR treat?

First and foremost, EMDR is intended as a treatment for PTSD, to defuse distressing memories that intrude on and impair everyday functioning. It is also often used to help those who are subject to panic attacks, phobias, and other forms of anxiety. In addition, EMDR has been used to treat individuals with depression, eating disorders, and personality disorders.

What happens in EMDR therapy?

First the therapist takes an individual’s history, and then the therapist and client decide which distressing experience(s) will be the target(s) of the exercise, delivered via a side-to-side visual stimulus requiring lateral eye movements. The client will be asked to activate thoughts, feelings, and any body sensations related to the troubling experience. The eye movements are said to reduce the emotional charge of the memory, so that the experience can then be safely discussed with the therapist and digested, minimizing its ability to trigger anxiety.
