The pillars in your life that once held you up are crumbling and the constant chatter in your head is on an endless, self-sabotaging loop. You're looking to reclaim parts of yourself that have been lost for months or even years.
You’re done with managing daily anxiety and depression and you're ready to finally HEAL. Possibly, that’s what has led you here.
You will understand in a no nonsense, plain speech kinda way how PTSD, anxiety and depression effect the body and mind. I share ALL my knowledge about mental health with the folks I work with and you will leave therapy with a wealth of information on what brought you here.
I often hear from the people I get to work with that, "wow, I don't feel triggered anymore!" or "I don't feel like I want to die anymore." I provide only evidenced-based therapies and interweave each different type of therapy that best suits the person in front of me.

You might be wondering if I’m in recovery. The answer is, I’m not. I used to think this left me at a disadvantage, but I quickly learned that the people I work with were successful not because of MY story, but because of their story. This isn’t about me.
My training and background have prepared me to help you.
I am CERTIFIED in EMDR which means I have gone beyond just EMDR training. EMDR has been effective with almost every single client I worked with, so it only made sense to continue education, training and experience in this therapy. During my certification process, I gained extensive knowledge of EMDR therapy and refined my skills on the vast ways to customize EMDR to meet the individual needs of the client in front of me.
I am a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I have had 13+ years of experience in the addiction field including chemical dependency education and supervision. Almost every single person I’ve worked with since 2002 has had some kind of addiction. It was only natural to pursue my education in this area because it served my clients best.
A couple fun facts about about me….I’ve been married for 20 years and have two children. My High Schooler and elementary-schooler certainly keep me on my toes! I love being outdoors, traveling and spending time with family, friends and my two amusing cats.
