About My Clients

I know it can feel so frustrating, wanting to live, and parts of you are holding you back. While coping skills are important, many of my clients have noticed they still feel stuck even when they are doing what they can to feel better. They tend to find that my ability to hold space for them prepares them for releasing past traumas and hurts through the combination of EMDR and Internal Family Systems. While I come from a faith background, I affirm folks who have suffered religious trauma.

My Background and Approach

I received training and supervision in Somatic and Attachment-Focused (SAFE) EMDR at the PTI Institute in Ann Arbor, MI in 2022, an EMDR International Association approved training organization. I have practiced Internal Family Systems in my own therapy and in my own life. I have read books by its founders and experts. I have completed webinars composed by its experts and founder. I have NOT completed the Level 1 training and cannot claim to be an IFS clinician. I trained through Geek Therapeutics to become a Therapeutic Game Master! Game play in a group setting can be a little less intimidating than sitting in a circle sharing feelings, while still getting the therapy benefit. Yes, it’s still therapy! I use various therapeutic approaches, including Narrative, ACT, and some IFS-informed.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe each person has within them the ability to move toward wellness under the right conditions. I consider each person an expert on themselves. I use therapies and techniques based on these beliefs and which support empowerment in those who enter my therapeutic space.
