My Approach to Helping

I'm a local expert in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and Couples Therapist. If anxiety or depression are making it hard to live your best life, EMDR is for you. It's a highly-researched treatment that can relieve decades of struggle in just a few sessions. If you're suffering, click my website to learn more. You don't need years of therapy to feel good again; you need the system that is certified by the World Health Organization and dozens of others as their preferred treatment for trauma, anxiety, and other symptoms.

If you are a battling couple ... I've been there. As a divorced, co-parenting mom of multiples, I know the hurt, betrayal, fear, and anguish of deep marital problems. I help many couples reconnect, recommit, and find the peace and joy with one another they've been desperately missing.
For other couples, divorce really is the best option. Not everyone knows the stress of divorce court, co-parenting, and starting over. I do, and I'm passionate about helping you experience a drama-free divorce so you confidently launch into the next phase of your lives. Click my website!

I am passionate about helping others and believe all of us have the resources within us to heal ourselves from pain, grief, loss, and hurt. You are not alone. My job as a therapist is help you find those resources by partnering with as you go along your journey and begin to heal and reconnect your body and mind to your life experiences.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have experience working with people who have experienced complex traumas including abuse, accidents, phobias, and life transitions. I am skilled at addressing PTSD, divorce issues, parenting plans, anxiety, and depression.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Every person is different and therefore each session is individualized to meet the needs of that specific client. I do blend therapeutic approaches as needed and work collaboratively with my clients.

Therapy can help by providing you with an opportunity to process experiences in your life that may have become frozen or stuck, and by giving you new ways to manage stress. My experience has been clients end therapy with a greater understanding, hope, an increase of self worth, and improved relationships with themselves and others.
