As a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist, I have see many clients find freedom in healing from trauma. Beyond the symptoms of nightmares, flashbacks, and hypervigilence, EMDR focuses treatment on the underlying false lessons learned from trauma. The idea that we are not safe, we are not worthy of love, and other core wounds are uncovered and processes during sessions. I provide a safe space to face the experiences that affect your well being.

I know that reaching out for help can be a scary and humbling process. I know because I have been there. That is why I am passionate about meeting people where they are and building a collaborative relationship with clients. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a Board-Certified Counselor with more than ten years’ experience.  Additionally, I am a Certified Trauma-Informed Care Practitioner and a Certified Trauma-Informed Yoga instructor. I am also an EMDR practitioner who was trained through the EMDR Institute of America. EMDR is the fastest and most effective path to healing. Supported by numerous research studies EMDR resolves persistent symptoms that do not respond to talk therapy. EMDR is a highly effective intervention for trauma, but also for a variety of other issues such as anxiety, perfectionism, phobias, addiction, depression, and more. I understand the importance of wellness over symptom management and believe in treating the whole person. I offer day and evening appointments and conduct all of my services via telehealth. It is my greatest honor to be a part of your healing journey. I also offer Qualified Supervision for Registered Mental Health Counseling Interns.

Are you asking yourself why you can't move past something? If you will ever feel better? The process of healing trauma through therapy is a journey - one that can provide an opportunity for growth with help and support. Traditional talk therapy often attempts to rationalize what seems to be irrational. The fact is, our nervous systems react in ways that make perfect sense in the face of traumatic experiences. As a clinician, I provide a safe, nurturing, and empathetic therapeutic experience. My goal is to provide an opportunity for my clients to express their pain and hardships as we explore ways to move towards resiliency, fulfillment, wellness, while gaining a greater sense of freedom to be their authentic, relaxed, joyful selves. You are not broken. You do not need to suffer in life. And you do not need to bear the burden alone. I am looking forward to hearing your story and walking alongside you in this journey.

Welcome! I am really glad you are here. If you're feeling stuck and experiencing symptoms that you just can't seem to shake despite all of the talk therapy you did in the past, podcasts you've listened to, books you've read, but it is just not bringing you any relief, it's time for a change.  Anxiety, depression, panics, anger, numbness, dissociation, procrastination are the result of your systems trying to adjust and survive. This is a chance for us to work together and explore how your specific experiences in your life have led you here, what parts of those experiences still influence your life today, and ultimately how I can help you find peace once again in this world. ​I believe that healing comes from within.  I am here to simply guide you, not tell you what to do.  My focus is on helping you find your unique path to peace and healing.

I help people heal from trauma; big or small trauma, generational trauma or present day trauma. EMDR has been a profound game changer in my practice. I’ve seen EMDR help clients overcome lifelong negative themes, most commonly; “I’m not enough and I don’t matter.” I have personally benefitted from EMDR in my own healing. It’s an honor to help people navigate and reconcile the wounds from their past to create a better future for themselves, their families and generations to come. It brings me such joy to see people find freedom from the shame and negative beliefs that have haunted them. I have witnessed profound change in the people I have walked beside on this journey. It’s not all sadness and pain, there is a lot of beauty too.
