I seek to help those that are struggling with familial conflict, defiance in the home, anxiety, depression, trauma, and other issues.
Life's struggles and experiences can cause us to feel overwhelmed, or even at times, out of control. We want to change how we are feeling or how our child feels, but we don't know how. We all experience moments like this in our lives and often we can persevere. At times though we need some help, and that's okay.

Experiencing trauma of any kind can leave us feeling overwhelmed and stuck. It can stop us in our tracks and upend life as we know it. Although it can seem impossible, healing from trauma is possible. My hope is to help others go from surviving to thriving despite life’s challenges. Facing trauma can be lonely and confusing, but you don't have to sort through it on your own. Trauma is complicated and one can experience a range of emotions such as: anger, grief, fear, sadness, anxiety and guilt. I would love to help you work through these feelings and move towards healing and peace.

EMDR to help heal trauma.
When we are handed the pieces to the puzzle that is our life, rarely are we provided a picture to guide us where to put them. Not knowing what the end result will be can cause frustration and lead to a feeling of helplessness or hopelessness. Through the use of integrated therapy techniques, I can introduce you to a new perspective or tools that you can use immediately to experience relief. I practice therapy with the belief that each individual is unique and has the potential to grow through self-discovery. I enjoy creating a therapeutic relationship based on empathy and respect.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence based therapy that is widely recognized as a beneficial therapy for trauma, as well as memories which cause individuals some sort of distress.
I often tell people that each one of us carries around an invisible backpack filled with things that inform who we are. Our behaviors, beliefs, and values are all impacted by what we carry in our backpack. Sometimes our backpacks get too heavy. Things from our past may be too much to carry. As a therapist, I help people sort through what’s in the backpack. Together we look at what needs to go and what needs to stay. I work hard to have a welcoming and inviting space. The therapy session is a no judgment zone. I have experience working with individuals of every age, ability, and orientation.
