My belief is in whole heart healing...that is, healing of the mind, body and soul. I believe that people have the tools to help heal themselves, but with all of the toxic energy that is around us, those tools get buried or are forgotten. I like to see myself as a conduit for the person's change, evolution and healing. The way I work with clients is to help them find those tools within themselves-teach them new ways to use them in order to become healthy and stay healthy. I work with couples and individuals with a focus on women and women's issues.

I specialize in the treatment of psychological trauma. Treatment is intense, and all participants must have sufficient social supports and self-care regimens in place. EMDR is the primary treatment modality and is supplemented by others. Although addictions are commonly affiliated with trauma, I do not treat addictions. I offer video or phone sessions and group workshops via video-conferencing. Note: Please do not seek treatment with me if you plan to pursue disability compensation. Those cases are best substantiated by MDs or PhD psychologists. I am neither.
