My Approach to Helping

I help people understand the ways the trauma they went through is impacting them currently, and offer skills that help them feel better and have fewer symptoms within the first few sessions of counselling.

People often come to me for help after experiencing extreme stress through trauma experiences related to abuse, combat, relationships, emergencies, natural disasters, medical procedures, and more. I primarily help heal trauma using eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) as it offers a direct route to long-term healing. With specialized training in EMDR I successfully help people who suffer from trauma, anxiety, panic, disturbing memories, post-traumatic stress reconnect with life after trauma.

More Info About My Practice

You can expect to be encouraged to approach therapy at your own pace while feeling understood and accepted. Most importantly we will spend our time on what is important to you and work through your struggles together.

For those of you who have a busy schedule, challenges that make going out difficult, don't want to leave the comfort of your home, or there are limited options in your area for specialized services such as trauma or art therapy, I offer online or weekend sessions and attend from the comfort of your home.
