About My Clients

Clients arrive seeking help with overcoming trauma, including the trauma endured while in a relationship with a narcissist (the majority of the clients I treat are survivors of narcissistic abuse). They are beginning to thrive through the help they receive in our support groups and the validation of their experience they receive in therapy, coaching, and groups offered by my practice. We also offer therapy with a deep understanding of military life for active duty mebers and their families.

My Background and Approach

With the use of EMDR, parts work, and Polyvagal Theory, I am able to help those suffering with symptoms of trauma, Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD, and internalized physical manifistations of the stress related to being in a relationship with a narcissist. You can start to heal and feel better than you ever have.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a firm believer that the nervous system holds on to the traumatic events we experience throughout our lives. When we learn to create a senseof safety within our bodies, everything changes. From the way we see the world to the way we see ourselves. Once we teach our bodies that we are safe, we are able to open up to heal our pasts.
