About My Clients
Got trauma? My clients are from all walks of life and have experienced trauma and are still feeling the lingering effects of the traumatic experience. I understand what it is like to get triggered by something and react in a way you don't like. That is called a trauma response, and I can help you with those responses. Together we will process your trauma and find healing so that life won't be as stressful for you.
My Background and Approach
I use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR is a type of therapy that reprocesses traumatic events or memories. Research shows that trauma is stored in the body. When someone is triggered, they experience a trauma response like shutting down, getting angry, or avoiding the situation. Using an 8-step process, EMDR helps reprocess those memories.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe my experience as a former educator and trauma advocate has helped shape me into an intentional professional therapist. My philosophy is that "you can't see people's mental health, so please remember to be kind and know it is okay to ask for help." I look forward to working with you. You have taken a courageous step to ask for help!
