I specialize in: Depression, Anxiety, Trauma & PTSD, Victims of Physical and Sexual Abuse, Relationship Problems.
I have seen people struggle for years with depression and/or anxiety caused by negative thoughts we have about ourselves from things we have been through in life, some things big and bad, others unintentional or seemingly benign. While we all experience challenges in life, you don't deserve to suffer and I can/want to help you find that relief. Medication helps, but is not the answer to long term recovery. Regular talk therapy is helpful, but also not the answer to long term recovery. EMDR therapy has been the most hopeful service for long term recovery I have found and the benefits can be physiologically understood.

Or individually you would like to move past the painful event(s)/trauma you have endured, learn to love yourself & remove the fear that weighs you down, to feel free from anxiety.
(As a couple or individual) - Experiencing a traumatic event, anxiety/ past pain can send you into a panic, tearful, angry, shut down. Feeling disconnected from yourself or from your partner. Stress feels so intense that sometimes it moves you to withdrawal. Or it rises into agitation: why doesn't my partner see my pain? Why did this/does this conflict/"bad thing" happen? What if it happens again? Feeling distrustful that anyone will be there for you either because you have been let down by someone before (maybe your partner) or have experienced something painful/traumatic & fear it will happen again. Feeling lonely and ignored.
