I am a Marriage & Family Therapist with a private practice in Livermore, CA. I work with individuals and couples and specialize in recovery from traumatic events & PTSD, incest & childhood sexual abuse, and childhood neglect, primarily utilizing Attachment Focused EMDR Therapy.
I offer an integral approach to psychotherapy and EMDR. I believe the mind and body are organized towards health and healing and in the right conditions: care, knowledgable support, and understanding, trust can begin to grow. Then the mind, body, heart, and spirit can begin to communicate with each other again. This is the process of healing.
I received an MA in Integral Counseling Psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, CA. I have a BSBA in Business Administration and Finance from Northeastern University in Boston, MA and am Certified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist from the Hypnotherapy Academy of America in Santa Fe, NM.
