About My Clients

Struggling with sleeplessness, dreams of being there, always trying to get your brain to shut down so you can relax, feeling shame, guilt, anger, and numbness…they didn’t prepare you for this. Having images just push their way into your brain reminding you of that thing, those people, that feeling. They teach you how to do your job, but not how to deal with the consequences. You are fine when surrounded by others who understand, but when you have to go home or loose that comradery...

My Background and Approach

Once you accept how much control you really can have in your recovery...and take responsibility to learn the tools... you can turn things around. You can do things that you want to do rather than accepting that you are going to be damaged and struggle with certain things. You can connect with your family again and be happy. In my work, I use some of the most effective therapy methods available today such as: EMDR and TF: CBT, and motivational interviewing I offer teletherapy appointments for anyone located in California and Idaho who is ready to get better, help their family, and take back control over their lives. Teletherapy enables you to have your appointments privately and flexibly from wherever you need to do them. I also do psychological testing in Redding California (with some options for teletherapy testing as appropriate). Reach out and schedule a free consultation today. I am here to help you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My journey to being a psychologist started early in life. I myself have overcome trauma and obstacles. In my own journey I gained a lasting respect for the profession of healing and I wanted to pass that same healing along to others. I worked hard to become a compassionate, understanding, and experienced psychologist. I have a wide range of skills and techniques that I use to help my clients heal, grow, and change. Change and growth is hard, but it is one of the most worthwhile experiences you can engage in. I work with individuals of almost all ages and their families to help them overcome traumatic experiences, PTSD, anxiety, and depression. My specialty is trauma. Trauma from work, the military, first responders, trauma from life, domestic violence, abuse, and/or trauma from childhood. If you are ready to work, want change, and are willing to put in the effort then I am ready to work by your side to help you heal and grow.
