*Due to high demand- longer waiting times* Did something really bad happen? Completely stressed out, anxious, depressed or feeling stuck? Is there too much to think about and sort out? Not sure what to do next or if it's even worth it? I would like to help you feel better, and to discover greater meaning and purpose for your life. As a Certified EMDR therapist (attachment focused), I can help you process the traumatic events that have occurred. Together we can work towards creating the story you want for your life. I partner with teens, parents and individual adults to help sort through the difficult issues your facing today.
I am a CERTIFIED EMDR therapist, specifically AF-EMDR (attachment focused-EMDR trained and certified therapist). I started working in mental health in 1995, and have a variety of mental health treatment experiences, in many different settings (inpatient, outpatient, schools, outdoor experiential therapy and groups).
I've been honored to be a part of the healing journey with those who have experienced a traumatic event or a lifetime of events (complex trauma). I do use a variety of techniques to help people with anxiety, depression, trauma symptoms (PTSD), behaviors, and relationship issues caused by these experiences. Together we will decide what is best for you.
