My Approach

There are a lot of different options out there to find help, but not all are as attentive to your unique needs and experiences. My goal when providing services is always to build a safe, trusting relationship so that we can work together to achieve your biggest mental health goals. You deserve someone who not only listens to understand, but also challenges you and infuses appropriate humor to lighten the load as well. 

While I have been widely trained in various modalities, theories and approaches, I most often utilize an Integrative Approach that frequently focuses on Person-Centered Therapy, Choice Theory/Reality Therapy, Multi-Cultural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Play Therapy, and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT). I am also specifically trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and am currently training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). 

 

I offer my expertise via online therapy (Telehealth) and have both weekend and weekday availability. Skip the waitlists and send me an email by pressing the button below!

Areas of Specialty

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Basic Trained

EMDR Pain Protocol Certified

EMDR is a specialization that requires several hours of training and practice for a clinician. It is "an extensively researched and highly effective therapeutic protocol to help people heal and recover after trauma or other distressing experiences including anxiety, depression, PTSD, and/or panic disorders." *

Check out this video from the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) to learn more about how EMDR can help here

I

Along with basic EMDR, I am specialty trained to work with EMDR for those with Chronic Pain/Chronic Illness and those with migraines. With 14 credit hours of focused training in this area, we can improve your physical pain as a result of chronic illness/chronic pain or trauma together. 

Children and Special

Populations

 After years of working inside schools, and specifically with differently-abled students for a couple of those years, I am passionate about supporting children and their families heal. 

I utilize a child's natural way of learning and growing, play/ play therapy, to address issues that might otherwise be hard for a child to sit and discuss. TF-CBT and EMDR can also be helpful methods for a child healing from past abuse or even depression and anxiety.
