A Change of Course


During difficult times, we can feel overwhelmed and stuck, unable to break ineffective or even destructive cycles. Getting “unstuck” involves incorporating new skills and concepts, such as psychological flexibility, self-awareness, assertive communication skills, mindfulness, effective coping strategies, insight, decision making skills, and values clarity. 


A Unique Collaboration Providing Quality Psychotherapy

My therapy practice focuses on assisting clients in creating full, rich, and meaningful lives. I offer an open, welcoming, and judgement-free space to collaborate and make positive changes. Every individual is unique, therefore I utilize an integrative therapeutic approach that varies from person to person based upon what best suits their specific needs, values, and goals. Evidence-based tools and techniques are employed to assist clients struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, and life challenges.

 I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master's degree in Professional Counseling and an Education Specialist postgraduate degree. I am a member of the EMDR International Association, and I have completed the EMDR Institute Training in Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), an evidence-based technique that helps individuals effectively process and heal from challenging, adverse experiences. I am also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP- Level II).
