About My Clients

You often feel lost and alone, like no one can understand you. You struggle to connect with others, and trusting feels difficult or impossible. The people who were supposed to love and care about you the most, also caused you the most pain. You adapted and survived, but at what cost? You struggle to understand the intensity of the pain you feel. You look for a reason, but can't make sense of it. You long for healing and wholeness. I look forward to helping you get there!

My Background and Approach

I am EMDRIA certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). I have also trained in Trauma Model therapy and Ego State therapy for the treatment of structural dissociation. I utilize mindfulness, psychodynamic, and attachment-based therapy approaches. My passion is helping people find, reclaim, or create their own paths to meaning, connection, and self-confidence after surviving abuse (emotional, sexual, physical) or neglect (emotional, physical). I have a particular passion for helping survivors of narcissistic abuse, emotional neglect, gaslighting, chronic invalidation, and those struggling with dissociative disorders.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

After years of volunteer work addressing the needs of people struggling with the aftermath of extensive trauma histories and dissociative disorders, I became disheartened at the lack of resources available to help survivors heal. Trauma remains stuck in the body, and while many therapies address thoughts and behavioral symptoms, they often fall short of truly resolving the underlying causes of current problems. Without trauma resolution, symptoms often return. I remain passionate about helping people resolve past traumatic or distressing experiences, and move toward a healthy, balanced life free from shame, fear, anxiety, panic, self-destructive behaviors, suicidal thoughts, isolation, low self-worth, and detachment from self and others.
