I enjoy working with each client individually to match their treatment needs and desired changes with the method of treatment. I also specialize in resolving distressing and/or traumatic life experiences. These experiences often keep us stuck in behaviors that are baffling and even debilitating a times. Efforts to change often feel overwhelming and defeating. Through EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) and other creative strategies, I have assisted many clients to realize new behavioral patterns and positive beliefs about themselves. I believe the reprocessing of psychological distress provides individuals in depth healing and renewed emotional freedom.

I am a certified clinical substance abuse counselor and certified EMDR therapist. In addition, I am an EMDR consultant in training. I utilize EMDR along with other therapies (e.g., art therapy, DBT, and MBCT) to help individuals reprocess psychological difficulties connected to addictive behaviors, traumatic experiences, loss, and issues of attachment..

I utilize an addiction recovery model to treat eating disorders, gambling addictions and substance abuse. I also utilize EMDR to assist clients with addictive behaviors, and to overcome performance anxiety (e.g., athletic performance, test anxiety).
