About My Clients

Welcome! If you're here, you are probably struggling with the impact of trauma. Left untreated, trauma remains in your body and can lead to chronic pain, depression, anxiety, and feelings of shame and worthlessness. I use EMDR and other approaches to help you leave trauma in the past. I am especially passionate about working with PTSD and complex PTSD, neurodivergent teens and adults, first responders, sexual trauma survivors, Single Mothers By Choice (SMBC) , and infertility-related stress.

My Background and Approach

My first goal is to help you find safety and connection in our work together. My style is warm and engaging, while also being goal oriented and direct. While I primarily use EMDR in my practice, I also incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and Solution-Focused approaches. The first session will focus on what brought you to therapy, what success might look like for you, and give you a chance to ask questions and get to know me. After that, we will discuss goals and a treatment plan that is collaborative and tailored to your needs.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

There is nothing wrong with you. I believe that we are all doing the best that we can at any given moment, and that we all have the resources inside of ourselves to heal and feel better. I'm here to help you find them.
