I am a licensed psychologist and utilize Attachment-Focused EMDR to help individuals process underlying traumatic experiences to help facilitate healing from depression, anxiety, problematic relationship patterns, unresolved grief, and self-destructive behaviors. Helping clients improve their lives and restore their sense of well-being and fulfillment is my priority. My approach integrates EMDR, IFS and somatic work.

I am passionate about and trained in transformative therapies that are relational and trauma-informed in their approach. In my utilization of EMDR I place great value on the therapeutic relationship. I strive to create an atmosphere of safety and trust so that you can feel comfortable sharing and processing difficult life experiences in an accepting environment emphasizing understanding and support. ​My therapeutic style offers warmth, care and compassion, as well as feedback and ideas about areas of your life you are seeking to change or manage more successfully.
