I love my job. I love watching clients have “aha” moments. I love celebrating clients' gains and watching their hard work pay off for them. I find it gratifying to "hold space" while someone does courageous EMDR work.

My professional focus is couples. I am certified in the Prepare-Enrich and Symbis assessments for couples. Some of the relationship issues I work with are dating readiness, effective dating, premarital counseling, abusive relationships, divorce, remarriage, and infidelity. I offer EMDR in a couples setting, which can be quite powerful. Couples therapy has a number of intricacies to it. I find them fascinating.

I regularly see individuals (ages 16 and up) as well. Clients commonly come to me with issues around dating, depression, anxiety, grief, loss, life transitions, trauma, and spirituality. I have experience with religious deconstruction and reconstruction. I offer EMDR therapy for the treatment of trauma and PTSD.

I believe in being both gentle and honest, empathetic and empowering. I draw from a variety of modalities, including motivational interviewing, existential therapy, emotion focused therapy, solution focused therapy, strengths-based therapy, ACT, and others. More important than any modality, I endeavor to bring my fullest presence to each session, and I consider it my responsibility to earn your trust. See my Welcome Letter if you’d like to know even more about how I practice therapy.

Contact me if you think we might be a good fit! I'd love to hear from you.
