I help people seeking support for trauma so you can

find healing and purpose in life. 

You’re pretending to live a normal existence-work, family, school and other areas.  You can sort of manage to keep it all together but soon the consequences start stacking up.

Trauma is a very lonely disease because of the shame and guilt it brings.  

Whether we are aware of it or not, the past is always present.  

You begin to notice a pattern that shows up in your relationships,

choice of friends, career and other areas in your life. 

If you’re seeking support for trauma you will discover what’s at the core so you can heal and feel strong enough to move on.  Healing comes from making sense of your story.

You may be saying, “but I’ve been doing talk therapy for years with little results.”

EMDR is an acronym for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is not like traditional talk therapy.  EMDR is a non-talking therapy that uses a laser focused approach for getting “unstuck” - we get to the root of the problems sooner.

I also support clients in addiction recovery with EMDR-based techniques that are easily integrated into all levels of addiction treatment.

I customize EMDR therapy to meet the needs of the person in front of me……your therapy is personalized exclusively for you.
