About

Are you hoping to heal from a trauma and/or achieve interpersonal success? I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and National Certified Counselor who specializes in working with clients who have experienced trauma. However, I also have worked with clients on life changes, family and marriage counseling, teen and/or parenting issues, and mood disorders (including anxiety and depression). Respect and compassion are essential components of my therapeutic approach. I will help you move from your difficult past and/or present and help you create a healthy and happy future.
I utilize a variety of approaches including EMDR and Brainspotting as treatment techniques for trauma. I have completed the 20hr foundational training in Trauma Sensitive Yoga with the Center for Trauma and Embodiment @JRI. I am also a clinician for the Headstrong Project, providing mental health services to post-9/11 war veterans (getheadstrong.org).
As a practitioner with 15+ years of experience, I am able to offer mental health treatment on a personal level. My specialties are not limited to age, race, color or religious beliefs. I offer clinical supervision to those with licensure and limited permit. I am able to provide consultation for EMDR as a Consultant-in-Training.
