About My Clients

Are you frustrated with daily life? Feeling like the past is always rearing its ugly head at the most inopportune times? You work hard to keep up with everything, but your mind keeps running in circles. I get it. You are ready to heal from past trauma and get off this roller coaster! I use a holistic approach; I get to know you and what you want life to look like. As a team, we develop skills to help you feel grounded and process the trauma that keeps you stuck.

My Approach to Helping

I'm an EMDR therapist in Phoenix, specializing in sexual abuse and trauma. In the first few sessions, it's helpful to look at where you're coming from and where you want to go, setting the foundation for our working relationship. As a team, we build a foundation of trust, grounding, and goals that help you feel like you are moving forward! I take a holistic approach, understanding where your body, mind, and soul are all coming from, and we discuss steps you can take to start feeling better after our first session. As a Yoga Teacher, I can teach you yoga techniques to help you feel more grounded and centered, which help as we work to develop your internal resources and process past trauma. Sometimes I find it helpful to use homework outside of sessions, but most times, the homework is to practice the skills you are learning so you can start finding relief.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe everyone starts in life with this spark of light inside them. We also go through heartbreak, stress, trauma, and not-so-happy events as we go through life. These things impact our view of ourselves and how we see the world. AND that spark is still in there, beneath the damage the world has inflicted. I support and advocate for social justice and the Black Lives Matter movement. I believe that individuals impacted by the lack of social justice are the people most hurt firsthand by trauma and experiencing generational trauma. I am here as an advocate, supporter, and trauma healer who can help in the process of healing from trauma. I practice a lot of self-reflection to be aware of my biases and privileges and actively seek to create change within myself and the world around me to be more just, fair, and accepting.
