My Approach to Helping

Do you feel like your sense of self has been chipped away by a toxic relationship? Do you feel like no one understands how destructive this person has been to your sanity or self-esteem? Do you feel empty, as if they have sucked the life out of you? When destructive people come into our lives, they can do unspeakable damage regardless of how strong or wise we may be. We are often left feeling severely hurt and hopeless. They can leave us confused wondering what we did to deserve this.
You are not broken and in need of fixing but wounded and in need of healing. With the help of a good therapist, many have not only survived these relationships but have thrived, learning to love themselves and their lives more than ever before.
I work in a compassionate but effective way to move you through your pain and into a place of empowerment and happiness in a short amount of time. There is hope. Please call today to schedule a free 30 minute, in-person consultation.

More Info About My Practice

I work compassionately, building a safe and confidential space for you to feel understood. I use eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), which research has shown is twice as effective, but in half the time as other psychotherapy.

I combine this technique with cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and other techniques to offer rapid results that last. Typical therapies can cause you to ignore or talk around the issue for years, without change or healing. I work to get to the heart of the issue in the fastest and least invasive possible way. My approach can boost your confidence, help you achieve your goals, help you move beyond depression, offer a greater social life, and help you cultivate deeper relationships. Let me show you how to move beyond negative patterns, boost creativity, heal from trauma, and become unstuck.
