I am a psychological consultant, specialized in critical incident stress and first responder care. I utilize EMDR and body/brain connection to help my clients gain control over their nervous system. My key areas are trauma, acute stress, professional burnout and resiliency, self esteem deficits.

My favorite quote is by Diane Ackerman, an American Poet, “I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find I just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.” We could all use some help navigating big events, the roller coaster of life, a high stress career or simply losing sight of who you are. You can learn to be resilient, recovered and refreshed. The body/brain that takes over can be understood and rebalanced. We can learn to understand and navigate it together.
