About My Clients

I believe that an individual's health relies on a "whole" approach of care, meeting physical, emotional, cognitive, spiritual, relational, and environmental needs. I believe that every individual deserves a life of total wellness. I believe that our clients are the experts in their own lives, and have the right to self-determine issues of health, relationships, and personal fulfillment.

My Background and Approach

Trauma can be defined as manifestations in both mind and body, stemming from either an isolated painful experience or a recurring theme of pain over the course of one’s life. Through this lens, I utilize an integrated whole-person and trauma-focused therapeutic approach in effort to create space for healing from the adverse life experiences that often interfere with our daily lives. As an Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) trained therapist through the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA), I recognize most behaviors or presenting symptoms as adaptations to traumatic experiences. By combining this “inside out” therapeutic approach with tenets from various other psychotherapy modalities, we will work together to restore your innate capacity for mental wellness and empower you to make changes that lead to whole health and happiness. There is hope!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

We welcome you. We will welcome you regardless of your present status; anxious, sad, angry, lonely, happy, questioning, depressed, lost or otherwise. We will welcome you regardless of your current family situation, relationship or marital status or lack thereof. We will welcome you if you have been to therapy in the past, are looking to come in for the first time, or have no idea what to expect. We will not judge you based upon your personal history, age, race, ethnic background, appearance, sexual orientation or gender identity. We welcome all beliefs, religions, spirituality, and affiliations. We welcome children, even when they act like children. We welcome adults, families, couples, and we welcome you. We welcome your tears, your laughter, your thoughts, your moods, your journey, and your story. We are all in this together, trying to find our way. All are welcome. You are welcome.
