Please note that my practice and waitlist are currently full at this time.
My primary approach is to create a safe place whereby one can openly invite their authentic self; full of vulnerabilities, weaknesses, insecurities and shame; to be fully seen, held, appreciated and heard. I am here to support all the parts of who you are.
Ultimately my attempt with each client is to uniquely blend and integrate the variety of therapy models I deeply respect and provide an opportunity for wholistic healing relationally, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically.
I best help those that feel they have tried everything else, including medical intervention, other therapeutic approaches or hoping it will "just get better." Those that enter my office are adults that are ready and willing to embrace new ways of understanding themselves and embracing all of who they are.

EMDR therapy is a psychotherapy that enables individuals to heal from the symptoms of emotional, cognitive and physical distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. EMDR therapy facilitates the accessing of the traumatic memory, so that information processing is enhanced, with new associations forged between the traumatic memory and more adaptive memories or information. EMDR therapy can also assist in accelerating progress in therapy, helping the client and the primary therapist resolve stuck points and enrich their ongoing work.

Brainspotting is not just for trauma; it is also used for performance enhancement to excel in areas such as athletics, business and relationships.
Trauma can overwhelm the brain’s processing capacity, leaving behind pieces of the trauma, frozen in an unprocessed state. Brainspotting allows deep processing to release and resolve the trauma.
SE can help you learn how to settle and release physical activation from your body, which is critical to changing PTSD symptoms and the wounds of early developmental/attachment trauma. For some people and for various reasons, stress responses can get stuck in our bodies. Our bodies experience these stress responses in many different situations - relationships, work, school, performance, etc.
but you want yourself to be one.
“A part of you was left behind very early in your life:
the part that never felt completely received.
It is full of fears. Meanwhile, you grew up with many survival skills.
Can you relate to these struggles?
