About

I firmly believe that each person has the ability to heal & embrace a life of purpose & meaning. If you have suffered from trauma, depression, anxiety, or attachment issues, I will bring my dedication for supporting you to our work together. If you have a complex diagnosis, such as Bipolar Disorder or Borderline Personality Disorder, I bring my skills & guidance to help you understand how to manage your moods & day to day life in a way that instills hope for the future and self-love. I hold a special place in my heart for parents of special needs children & those struggling to find meaning and purpose in a life with chronic illness.
I have specialized training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), Trauma-Informed Therapy, Mindfulness, Play Therapy, Sand Tray, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). As our work together progresses, you will be better prepared to deal with the challenges you encounter throughout life!
My objective is a two-fold approach, which includes identifying & working through the underlying issues, as well as helping you develop effective coping strategies that meet your needs. Working from a trauma-informed perspective, bringing a range of techniques, such as EMDR and ACT, I will help you process the emotions that lie below the surface.
