Are you a sensitive person? Does life often overwhelm you? Do you feel held back by traumatic events from the past?

I work with people who have experienced childhood trauma and PTSD. I also enjoy working with people who struggle with anxiety symptoms. Additionally, I see individuals with mind-body syndromes also known as Tension Myositis Syndrome- chronic pain, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, vulvodynia, migraines, and more. I have a special interest in Misophonia, which is a selective sound sensitivity. Lastly, I view myself as a Highly Sensitive Person and enjoy supporting other HSPs with anxiety and overwhelm.

In my sessions, I am very engaged and I view therapy as a collaboration. I am fully trained in EMDR, and use it for limiting beliefs and trauma. I use multiple therapy modalities but I am a big fan of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy. I find it's great for self esteem issues and social anxiety. I am training in Somatic Experiencing and I am also a Certified Trauma Professional.
