I believe in collaboration, curiosity, and questions. I believe in authenticity, validation, and boundaries. I believe in starting over, again and again. I believe in learning from life experiences. I believe people need to earn the right to hear your story. I believe people deserve love, belonging, security, and connection. I believe profound change is possible because I see it every day and have experienced it myself. I believe in the power of EMDR therapy and the healing it promotes.
Some of my clients are Veterans who struggle with trauma, mood disorders, and transition issues. Some of my clients are civilians who experienced early childhood abuse and neglect. I have experience working with BIPOC clients, Veterans, and LGBTQ+ persons. I work with DID and dissociative disorders.
I am a combat Veteran, a member of the LGBTQ community, and a practicing Buddhist. I practice mindfulness and self-compassion and help my clients develop these skills in a way that works for them.
