Announcement icon Due to COVID-19 all counseling services are provided via teletherapy.
My focus is to provide quality psychotherapy and healthy lifestyle counseling for motivated individuals who desire to improve the quality of their life. My therapeutic approach is holistic in nature stemming from the biopsychosocial model. This model emphasizes the interconnectedness between our physical body, psychological and environmental factors and how these factors interact and affect us as a whole person. I have over 15 years of experience in behavioral health. I obtained my Master’s degree in Clinical Health Psychology from Northern Arizona University.
I utilize various treatment modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR). Furthermore, I am a certified EMDR therapist and also trained in the Flash Technique.
My goal is to help people feel better and live healthier lives by changing unhelpful thought patterns and behavior in order to prevent and treat illness and overall improving one’s health and well-being. Please feel free to contact me and we can meet and explore options to improve your life.
