About My Clients

My clients range from 5 thru 85 who want to better themselves by reducing symptoms such as: depression, anxiety, phobias, social anxiety, mood disorders, PTSD by using when possible: Body, Mind, Spirit interventions like heart centered therapies and EMDR which works on the subconscious level where all deep and lasting change comes from. In changing your negative subconscious beliefs and transforming them into positive subconscious schema/beliefs, your life begins to shift into a "better you."

My Background and Approach

I specialize in "small t" and "big T" traumas through utilizing heart centered therapies coming from a body/mind approach to support the body to efficiently reduce mental health symptoms such as anxiety, depression, trauma memories etc. These types of heart centered applications help the body naturally find it's emotional balance thus freeing you from repetitive negative patterning and supporting you to make new neuronal brain connections creating subconscious positive belief systems which then support your present life. This approach may lead you to creating what you truly want for yourself in your present life and experience a new perspective on how you see the world in front of you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in supporting my clients through empathy and understanding to create a strong, therapeutic alliance; a "good fit" between client and therapist is 85% of successful therapy. Then, I apply evidenced-based therapies which have been shown to greatly reduce mental health symptoms as my goal is to lower the "volume" on anxiety or whatever "it" may be so that you may lead a happier, healthier life where you have internal locus of control of whatever it is that you wish to create in your present day life. A little about my background: I graduated from Boston College in 2008, did a diverse internship working with individuals and couples, studied the application of EMDR and currently have EMDR Level II certification which works to transform negative subconscious beliefs. Worked at a non-profit agency for 6+ years and am currently in private practice supporting clients to be the highest and best "versions" of themselves. I believe in social/economic justice and racial equality.
