Years of experience have taught me that you already know who you are and what you need. We will work together to bolster and grow that healthy part of you who knows how truly amazing you are. I approach each treatment plan with care. I listen to what is getting in your way such as distressing symptoms (ex: sleep problems, intrusive thoughts, stress, worry) so that you can fully embrace your whole self. With my special focus in using techniques including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), trauma-focused care, and more, I integrate my approach to meet your needs.
