About Me

I believe we all have a natural instinct to move toward healing and wholeness - like a plant naturally faces the sun. I believe there is always a gift in pain and suffering. I believe counseling is one of the many beautiful paths to healing. I would be honored to be part of your healing journey. Through working with clients and their families, I have witnessed that you get out what you put in. If you put effort into counseling. If you do “the work,” you will see change and your quality of life will improve. It is a miraculous process that happens both bit by bit and all of the sudden. You’ll see!

I have been specially trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, or EMDR. While it is true that EMDR is not for everyone, EMDR is the closest thing to magic I have encountered as mental health professional. I have also been specially trained in Infant Mental Health (0-6) so I can be particularly helpful to new parents.

My approach is eclectic. I practice Cognitive Based Therapy, or CBT, and I integrate concepts and techniques from mindfulness-based approaches like Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, or DBT. I also include concepts from Internal Family Systems, IFS, and Psychodynamic Counseling (specifically Jungian) as needed. For example, shadow-type work and dream analysis.
