You or a loved one is struggling with a problem that seems impossible to bear. Although you may feel like things will never get better, there is hope for healing. Together, we can find tools that will help you make it through this difficult time, heal, and improve. I will be a therapeutic support for you in your journey toward healing. The journey will be hard at times, but we'll laugh along the way. I feel it is important that you are truly heard. I am an empathetic and nonjudgmental therapist. I don't expect you to change right away; sometimes change takes time. I will make no judgement on your speed of change.
I specialize in relationship issues, addiction treatment, and trauma work. I have a keen ability to connect the dots in therapy, drawing on my specialized training in trauma and emotion. Many therapists do not do much trauma work. I do. I know that past experiences impact you greatly in the here and now. I combine shame and trauma work with EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and find that this powerful combination helps clients improve more effectively. I have receive specialized training with Pia Mellody and Brené Brown. I also have specialized training in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples.
