About My Clients

Are you frustrated with daily life? Feeling stuck in the past or like past stuff rears its ugly head at the most inopportune times? You work hard to keep up with all of the things, but somehow your mind keeps running in circles. I get it. You are ready to heal from the past trauma and get off this carousel! I use a holistic approach; I get to know you and what you want life to look like. As a team, we develop skills to help you feel grounded and process the trauma that keeps you feeling stuck.

My Approach to Helping

I'm a trauma therapist in Tampa, providing EMDR therapy. I find it helpful to start the first few sessions uncovering where you're coming from, and what you want to achieve, setting the foundation for our working relationship. As a team, we work together to build a foundation of trust, grounding, and goals that help you feel like you are moving forward! I take a holistic approach, understanding where your body, mind, and soul are all coming from, and we discuss steps you can take to start feeling better after our first session. As a Yoga Teacher, I can lead you through some yoga postures to help you feel more grounded and centered, which helps as we work to develop your internal resources and work towards processing those negative life events with EMDR therapy. At times I find it helpful to use homework outside of sessions to help me understand where you're coming from. Most times, though, the homework is simply to practice the skills you are learning so you can start finding relief.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone starts in life with this spark of light inside of them. We also go through heartbreak, stress, trauma, and not-so-happy life events as we go through life. All of these things impact our view of ourselves and how we see the world. AND that spark is still in there, beneath the damage the world has inflicted. I support and advocate for social justice, and the Black Lives Matter movement. I believe that individuals impacted by the lack of social justice are the people most hurt firsthand by trauma and experiencing generational trauma. I am both here as an advocate and a supporter, and a trauma healer who can help process trauma and find healing. I practice a lot of self-reflection to be aware of my biases and privileges and actively seek to create change within myself and the world around me to be more just, fair, and accepting.
