I am a fully trained EMDR therapist with experience working with children, adolescents and adults. I also enjoy working with neurodivergence and individuals in the LGBTQ+ community.

I currently have immediate availability for in person appointments in Green Tree and telehealth. I take a holistic approach to healing, because more often than not the environments that contribute to strife are all encompassing. The path to healing is not linear, and I enjoy aiding individuals through an eclectic approach tailored to fit their needs. I consider myself a trauma therapist & work with children, adolescents, and adults of all ages. It's not about what's wrong with you- it's about what happened to you. I do not view a client as a diagnosis. My approach is to treat clients as an individual rather than a set of symptoms.
My eclectic approach draws on EMDR, Attachment-Based Practices, Somatic Interventions, Play Therapy, DBT, CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Transactional Analysis and Systems Work. My practices are also informed by feminist & critical race theories. I am fully trained in EMDR and can provide in-person or virtual EMDR sessions to clients of all ages.
I believe that traditional therapeutic spaces can be further isolating when clinicians are not affirming to important parts of a client's identity such as gender, sexuality, or race. I am a LGBTQIA+, non-traditional relationship structure (ENM/CNM), and minority affirming therapist. It is important that my clients feel they can co-create a space where they feel comfortable and heard.
