I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, certified in EMDR, helping adults and teens cope with trauma, depression, anxiety, dissociation and stress.

Complex PTSD is not in the DSM, but I see it often in my office. I also see depression, panic, anxiety, and old patterns that clients just get tired of having and don't know how to stop.

With training in EMDR, somatic therapies, Internal Family Systems, and more than 10 years of experience as a therapist, I do my best to help clients untangle from their symptoms and build better habits to foster growth and resilience.
