"Everyone has the capacity to grow, shift, and change.   As a licensed marriage and family therapist working in the mental health field for over 17 years, I provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where we can build a therapeutic alliance built on trust and empathy.  Together we will explore your feelings, experiences, and challenges as part of your journey to finding personal fulfillment in a safe way.  

 

To achieve your goals, I bring creativity and integrated approaches to the therapeutic experience that are catered to your specific needs.  I have extensive training in psychodynamic approaches as well as various trauma modalities like Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing-EMDR (Certified), Attachment-Focused EMDR, Brainspotting, Internal Family Systems with EMDR, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and more. 

 

Additionally, I have a background in music, songwriting, and drama.  When appropriate, I incorporate expressive arts into the therapeutic treatment.  I aim to learn about your uniqueness and work with you on finding approaches that address your unique needs.  This is something that we will do together.

 

I look forward to learning more about you."
