Professional Counselor Intern

Do you find yourself struggling with anxiety, feeling the weight of depression, or the pain from a loss or traumatic event in your life? I am a trained EMDR provider and certified clinical trauma specialist, but I too have camped out in the black hole and intimately understand the healing journey.

My Approach

My approach to therapy incorporates cognitive behavioral methods (examining one’s thoughts and beliefs) to facilitate change, however I also draw heavily on trauma-informed and attachment based treatment. I am a trained EMDR counselor, which is very specific treatment for trauma and trauma related symptoms. I incorporate an integration of different therapy interventions, but ultimately ones that are best suited for each clients unique style or presenting problem. It is my desire to help my clients explore their core beliefs and heal those areas of hurt and shame with grace and self-acceptance,

My Background

I believe we all have a story, but sometimes that story contains very painful events and experiences that get stuck in short-term memory and right brain processing. When painful stories are kept in the dark, they begin to change you and your relationships. The impact can metastasize to other parts of your life. Unresolved trauma makes people think and behave in fearful and unproductive ways. Many people want to give up. May I tell you, you are not alone! I'm not afraid to step into your dark places and help restore you to your authentic self.
