About My Clients

Depressed and anxious? Unsure why you feel this way and cannot understand why your life isn't where you want it? Feeling unsatisfied in your relationships and easily triggered by your partner and the people around you? You've survived so much and wonder why you can't thrive as you see others living their best life. You know deep down that you've struggled mightily through life. While others seem to swim, you tread water. You judge yourself harshly for this but can't see another way to live.

My Background and Approach

I work in a client-centered way to help you understand & cope with present-day stressors and get to the root of the issues/trauma that keep you feeling stuck or disconnected. I use validation, active listening, and mindful awareness to ensure you feel seen, heard, and supported by someone who deeply cares. Trying to manage an issue that seems like no one understands can be a very lonely experience, and sometimes it takes an outside perspective to gain a felt sense of clarity. My goal is to quickly have you feeling like you aren’t alone as you heal & grow. I practice virtual and in-person EMDR therapy, using a strengths-based approach to connect with clients in a warm, conversational manner. Our work might also include or be influenced by attachment theory, DBT, and CBT. I offer hourly sessions in a safe and HIPPA-compliant setting where you’ll be free to explore what’s most important to you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

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.
