If you've experienced trauma and not getting the results that you need, or just want to take a more holistic approach on your path to healing after a recent trauma , find out more about how EMDR and neurofeedback can help.
Have you had a traumatic incident(s) and still experiencing the symptoms? Are loss of sleep, unexplainable emotions, low self esteem, poor concentration or panic keeping you from enjoying your life? You may be working with a therapist and feel that your brain will just not allow you to implement the strategies. Trauma wires the brain, neurofeedback and EMDR rewire it.

I enjoy working with adults and adolescents ages 13+ who struggle with anxiety, people-pleasing, perfectionism, boundary setting, trauma , mood dysregulation, self-esteem, identity exploration (LGBTQIA+ affirming), and relationship & family conflicts.
Are you tired of feeling like you’re “never enough”? Do you find yourself always wearing a mask and being the ultimate people-pleaser to feel accepted? Has trauma from your past kept you locked in cycles of unhealthy behaviors, habits, and relationships? A life without overwhelming worries and perfectionism is not out of your reach. With some self-exploration, vulnerability, empowerment, and a little bit of humor and sarcasm, I would love to help you reach your personal goals.

Life is complicated and hard at times. There are times where anxiety, depression, trauma , personal issues (relationships, family, career), and substances are experienced. Sometimes you need a safe, nonjudgmental space to talk about these issues, feel validated, explore solutions, and move forward in success. My therapeutic style is laid-back, empathic, strength oriented, and lastly therapeutically laughing during times when it is appropriate.

Anxiety disorders and PTSD , as well as helping people find Motivation and meet Life Goals, are my main specialities. I have had close to 20 years of experience working with these issues, and am now completely focused on utilizing my extensive clinical and coaching skills to help people deal with these issues and become their best selves. My most favorite modalities are EMDR and hypnosis to help people process inner conflicts and past traumas that may be holding them back from reaching their highest selves, but I am also well versed in more traditional Cognitive Therapies.

Issues might include relationship/ boundaries/identity/developmental transitions/expected-unexpected losses/illness/ anxiety/fear/ trauma .
Ideal clients arrive when something is missing, not working well, when confused, with emotional discomfort, loss or chaos in life. Together we look at thoughts and patterns that limit growth/well-being and begin to create more of what matters to you. As you discover solutions and find hope in everyday life, personal wisdom often emerges to guide you. My goal is to empower you as you transition into your best self and wellness.
