I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, along with various other treatment modalities and I have experience working with individuals of all ages suffering from anxiety, depression, grief and loss, singular incident trauma, and complex/chronic trauma.
My work is driven by the belief that people can change and heal from mental health challenges that cause them problems in life. Making positive change can be difficult, exhausting, and overwhelming; but it is also courageous, rewarding, and important work. I would welcome the opportunity to walk together with you, facilitating the important process of positive change.

We humans are all unique, with our own struggles and wounds, our own strengths, values, and ambitions. What we share is the right to live the fullest, most satisfying lives that we deserve. My special interests are in PTSD and complex trauma. If you've been told that you're stuck in the past, consider this: Most likely, the past is stuck in you. It may have helped shape you, but it no longer has to define you. If you've come to rely on substances to cope, I want to empower you to regain control. I recognize the pain that pushes individuals into these patterns, and the need to pick up the pieces after abstinence is achieved.

I also have experience working with adults and college-aged students struggling with relationship issues, trauma, depression, anxiety, and many other issues that have affected their overall well-being.
I have experience working with children and adolescents in a community mental health setting as well as through telehealth. In my experience, kids often have a difficult time expressing their emotions and processing trauma, simply because they don’t have the words to explain what is happening inside of them. That is why I use tools such as play therapy and expressive art therapy as a way of providing my clients with a safe place to process their emotions and experiences.

Do you hide unexplained anxiety or anger under a calm 'put-together' exterior? Do you struggle with self-defeating behaviors and don't really know why? You may be struggling because of developmental trauma. The effects of adverse childhood experiences continue on into adulthood: difficulty trusting, difficulty tolerating and regulating emotions and often physical challenges such as autoimmune issues. I provide emotional support and insightful relational engagement to help you overcome developmental trauma and begin to flourish and thrive instead of just survive.

Sometimes the choice requires having the courage to begin again...start over...wipe the slate clean.
