About My Clients

Do you struggle with anxiety, perfectionism and vulnerability? Are you ready to face down your inner critic? If this sounds like you, I can help you to stop "shoulding" yourself and uncover ways to rise up and embrace worthiness.

My Background and Approach

I am trained in EMDR therapy. This incredibly powerful and evidence-based approach is very effective in helping heal trauma or emotional and psychological problems such as anxiety, depression, attachment disorders and other issues. In addition to EMDR, I have training in Internal Family Systems , Attachment Based Family Therapy, Play Therapy, Sandtray Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, The Nurtured Heart Approach and mindfulness.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Close to a decade ago, I made a life changing decision to leave a corporate job, return to school and become a social worker/therapist. My choice to pursue social work and not another degree was deliberate due to the values set forth by the profession and how they aligned with my personal beliefs. I am a fierce advocate for social justice and truly believe in the importance of human relationships, particularly in the therapeutic relationship.
