My education and training is focused on helping clients identify, accept, and heal from trauma. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a well known modality that is effective in decreasing emotional intensity attached to traumatic life experiences and restoring traumatic memories in a more adaptive way within the brain. Because trauma looks different for every client, EMDR can be adapted to each client experience, allowing for an individualized healing experience.

Daniel J Siegel wrote, “We are always in a perpetual state of being created and creating ourselves.” I believe deeply in the power of stories. If we listen closely to the stories we tell, we can hear our fears, our pains, our hopes, our dreams. I studied and taught personal narrative writing for a long time before I became a therapist, and learned a lot about the process of making meaning through story. As a therapist, I’ve learned a lot about the way relationships and the systems we’re part of can impact our stories, and our brains, the foundations of who we are.
