I specialize in helping individuals struggling with intimacy, self worth, shame, and vulnerability. I work to help clients embrace their story, achieve healing and foster resilience.
The focus of my counseling practice is providing both individual and group therapy to help increase self esteem and shame resiliency, combat perfectionism, and to foster each individuals journey towards healing.
I am an EMDRIA Certified Therapist and have completed the Basic and Advanced Training in Attachment Focused EMDR from Laurel Parnell. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a member of the La Perla Counseling & Trauma Response Services, Inc., a team of licensed professionals specializing in treating trauma, stress, and addictions.
As a trained Attachment Focused EMDR professional, I specialize in mending attachments. I believe past experiences of a client, including instances of childhood caregiver absence, abuse, trauma, and loss strongly influence whom they become later in life, and affect patterns of thought, emotions, and behavior.
