Are you feeling out of sorts? Are things just not falling into place for you? Is there a thought that won't go away, that you've perhaps tried to take away through drugs, drinking, or some other unhealthy way? Or, maybe you feel like things are going well, but you're afraid something bad will happen soon? Has someone said to you that maybe you should see a therapist about this? In today's world, it's not uncommon to experience stress, anxiety or depression. But when it becomes dysfunctional and interferes with how you live your life, that's when a helping hand may be the right place to turn to.

I've seen the effects of bullying, of substance abuse, and trauma. I've seen what the long term effects of being ostracized in school have done, and how it affects the patterns of relationships in the person's adult life. I am trained in EMDR, TF-CBT, and DBT therapies. These modalities help the client make sense of trauma, anxiety, and the gray areas.
