All sessions are 50 minutes in length. EMDR or family sessions may be increased to 90 minutes, if appropriate.
While I am experienced in treating a wide variety of concerns, I primarily focus on the treatment of trauma and eating disorders, and the anxiety and fears borne out of them. When you call in, we’ll talk a little about what you’d like help with, and go from there to ensure we’re a good fit to get your therapeutic needs met!

My philosophy and treatment approach is anchored in research, science, compassion, authenticity, respect, and passion. I specialize in EMDR therapy and work from a trauma-focused lens. Regardless of whether you've experienced common or not-so-common trials in life, we can work to put those experiences and memories in the past so you don't have to carry them into the future. You're the ultimate expert on you. If you're ready to invest in yourself, you can learn to look inside and view yourself with kindness, compassion, and curiosity. My hope for you is that you find meaning, happiness, peace, and joy. I'd love to accompany and support you.
