About My Clients

Are you a mid career professional struggling with relationship issues and health challenges? You might benefit from working with an attachment-based EMDR therapist who gets how traumatizing illness can be - someone, like me. You'll gain insight, safely reprocess overwhelming experiences, and learn more wholesome ways to relate to yourself, your body, and to others.

My Background and Approach

I draw from a strengths based, trauma informed framework to help clients move towards greater resilience and wellbeing. Using EMDR and mindfulness-based experiential interventions, I specialize in treating medical PTSD, developmental trauma (including Childhood Emotional Neglect (CEN), and dissociation.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I tend to look at the world through a lens of interconnectedness. This means I look at mental health issues contextually. I usually find that the struggles my clients face don't point to something inherently wrong with them. Rather, they reflect systemic problems and historical traumas. The resulting harm inevitably trickles down and impacts one-on-one relationships—between parent and child, employee and boss, a pair of friends, medical provider and patient, or between romantic partners. Therapy is a place to heal some of these wounds.
