About My Clients

You are experiencing anxiety or trauma, such as a medical emergency, birth trauma, violent assault, or car accident, leaving you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and disconnected. It can feel like there's a nervous buzzing in your body that you can’t shake off. You might have difficulty focusing, sleeping, or finding joy in activities. Simple tasks may seem impossible. Your goal is to regain control, find peace, and move forward, but right now, it feels like these symptoms are getting in your way.

How I Can Help You

Experience faster results with intensive psychotherapy, where longer sessions replace the traditional weekly short format. By spending more time together in one session, we can dive deeper into the root causes of anxiety and trauma. Combining EMDR and body psychotherapy with intensives allows you to make meaningful progress in a shorter period. Healing doesn’t always have to take years of therapy. You can find relief faster. Both EMDR and body psychotherapy are therapeutic models designed to heal trauma. By combining them, your brain and body work together, creating a more holistic experience. As an added benefit, you don’t need to talk about the details of what happened if you don’t want to. In just a few sessions, it is possible to experience significant changes. I offer extended sessions ranging from 90 minutes to 5 hours. Take the first step toward regaining control of your life. Schedule a free phone consultation at
