About

I am certified in EMDR and trained in Brainspotting, both therapies help the body and brain heal organically from trauma. Furthermore, I am trained in several other different therapies. This give my clients an unique and holistic approach to healing. I offer a calm, supportive and nonjudgemental approach to trauma therapy. I treat each person as an individual that matters. I enjoy watching clients grow and move forward from what they thought was hopeless. My goal is to help the whole person heal and move forward. I am grateful for the chance to be a part of the transition. I've seen several clients move forward in their healing.
I am more than a trauma informed therapist. I have extensive training in trauma and PTSD in adults and children. I have 3 certifications as a trauma professional from the international association of trauma professionals. I continue evidence-based training through out the year to ensure I am up-to-date and well-rounded in my therapy approach.
Additionally, I have training and experience working with Substance abuse issues, behavioral and/or mental health adolescents and children, Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, Veteran and first responders clients who are in need of therapeutic assistance.
