It is an honor to be invited along a person’s journey towards healing, growth, and happiness. Though I have a doctoral degree, please feel free to call me by my first name! I have been in practice for nearly twenty-five years and specialize in couples/family therapy, trauma-informed care, and supportive therapy for treatment needs such as depression and anxiety. For those who might have post-traumatic stress and/or “stuck” self-defeating beliefs about themselves, I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization (EMDR) therapy, a rapid and transformative treatment approach that has been thoroughly researched and shown to be highly effective. I am a parent of a special needs adult, so have a unique perspective of parenting demands as well as strong diagnostic skills for children and adults alike. Congratulations for trusting yourself enough to consider therapy, I will do all I can to support you in this important journey.
