About My Clients

Do you have muscle tension, pick at your nails, tap your foot constantly? I help people whose anxiety takes over at the worst possible moments. You can find hope out of the dark tunnel of despair. I specialize in EMDR and Brainspotting therapy modalities. Trauma effects our emotions, memory, and physical health. Your body has an innate ability to heal itself from past pain.

My Background and Approach

My specialty is utilizing BRAINSPOTTING and EMDR therapy. You can learn to shift, rework, and release limiting beliefs and body sensations. New studies in neurosciences show the brain is capable of changing itself. BRAINSPOTTING supports symptom relief, self-awareness, healing, increased self-confidence, and changes in behavior. I graduated from ASU with a Masters Degree in Social Work. I completed my licensure residency at Terros/Phoenix Interfaith Counseling. You can learn to become comfortable with uncomfortable emotions. For your benefit, I have been trained in DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).
