EMDR is a method of processing trauma and helping you think about it differently so that it doesn't bother you anymore. Often we are stuck in negative beliefs about ourselves regarding our trauma when in fact we did what we could or did not have control over the outcome. EMDR helps you use your adult mind to process past trauma objectively.
Nonviolent Communication is an excellent tool to learn what your own feelings and needs are, as well as how to express them to others in a way that opens the conversation and increases understanding, rather than creating or perpetuating a conflict where each party is trying to 'win.' This will help you develop more compassion for yourself and others, and deepen meaningful connections with others
Western medicine tends to be very specialized, and often focuses on treating symptoms rather than the underlying cause of illness. But a person’s mental health is affected by the food they eat, the quality of their relationships, and how they spend their time. As a trained health coach, I look at the individual as both a unique entity, and as part in a number of a number of larger systems.
Relationships are not one-size-fits-all and the ones you design yourself can be potentially the most fulfilling. Although non-traditional relationships face many of the same issues as traditional ones, they also have the potential to amplify or emphasize problems, especially around insecurity or jealousy.

Raising kids is tough! So much has changed in the last couple of decades with technology and culture that adolescents today experience numerous problems we never had to deal with growing up (and some we did!). I have worked with kids and families on a variety of topics in home, community, and school-based settings, so I have a variety of tools to address common problems.
Every relationship experiences ebbs and flows, and while some degree of conflict is normal, at times it can get to a point where it seems impossible to solve it on your own. This is where a couples therapist can help. As a trained marriage and family therapist, I will help you better understand one another and reconnect to the love and excitement that made you fall in love in the first place.
Anxiety is very common - we all experience it to some degree, but when it keeps you from doing the things that you love and are important to you, a change is needed. It can be a result of over-analyzing or over-thinking situations to the point that it no longer serves you. I will help you “get out of your head” and embrace your inner strength to enjoy the things that are important to you.
Depression is something many people face in modern times. Causes can be internal (self-esteem issues, chemical imbalance), external (resulting from unhealthy relationships or abuse), societal (feeling isolated, experiencing pressures around your job or money) or even global (climate change, discrimination, poverty, etc). You don’t need to face these challenges alone, and I'm here to help.
