About me

I am a certified EMDR Therapist who specializes in working with anxiety, self-consciousness, and the effects of trauma.

I help individuals struggling with anxiety, self-consciousness, and the effects of trauma feel confident, secure, and balanced. I specialize in utilizing Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) to process through both large traumas and small everyday traumas in order to replace negative self beliefs with positive self beliefs.

I am a certified EMDR therapist, licensed clinical professional counselor and registered art therapist. I offer both weekly EMDR therapy as well as EMDR in an accelerated intensive model.

I believe that in order to grow and heal people need to feel accepted and understood. I strive to provide a safe environment where individuals can share their authentic self without fear of judgment.
