Areas of Focus

I enjoy and am good at helping individuals move through transitions a relationship shift, a death, a new career, a diagnosis, becoming a parent any loss or shift that greatly impacts your life.

I work with individuals in a variety of areas including:
  • Relationship struggles
  • Managing and overcoming depression and anxiety
  • Loss/grief
  • Internalized shame
  • Family conflict
  • Traumatic experiences
  • Painful childhood experiences (emotional, sexual, physical abuse or neglect)

EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing)

I offer a trauma-informed perspective where I pay attention to experiences that were traumatic or events in your life that keep reemerging a sexual assault, child hood abuse, a car accident, an abusive partner.  I offer an efficient technique called EMDR to address these areas.
