Recover from Upsetting Events & The Root Cause of Problems
Highly Effective, Friendly, Professional Counseling
I specialize in helping adults identify and recover from upsetting experiences that contribute to anxiety, depression, loss of self-esteem, grief, relationship problems, career problems, feeling stuck or feeling that no matter how hard you work or what you try you can't find peace or happiness. I have helped clients quickly heal from criticism, rejection, humiliation, heartbreak, divorce, job loss, childhood abuse (emotional, physical, sexual), recent abuse, trauma, or growing up with a narcissistic parent or in an alcoholic family.

I offer a highly effective, research based, whole brain approach to therapy called EMDR, that is based on the science of how the brain stores and processes memories. Many people who have struggled for years with an issue or have already tried other forms of therapy, experience quick, lasting relief with EMDR. I am a Certified EMDR Therapist with advanced training in EMDR and trauma therapy.

My clients frequently comment on how easy it is to work with me and how comfortable they felt talking with me from the very first session. I take an active, friendly, conversational approach with clients. I believe the more genuine and engaged I am in our conversations, the easier it is for you to be comfortable in our sessions and share with me whatever you are feeling or thinking. I love working as a therapist and am grateful for the privilege of hearing peoples' life stories and witnessing people grow, heal, and find more contentment and joy.

Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked in marketing management and career coaching. In addition to therapy, I offer career coaching services, and I speak professionally on anxiety, depression, loss, trauma, conflict management and career management.
