“Take the first step towards a better life...a better you!”
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). My passion in working with those struggling after trauma led me to become EMDR Trained and Brainspotting (BSP) Certified. I have completed Level I and Level II in EMDR. I have also completed phase 1, phase 2 and the Master Class seminar in BSP.
My work focuses in on major issues including victims of violence, couples and families in crisis, intimacy issues, eating disorders, anxiety and depression to name a few.
I am a mother of two and have a passion for working with children and teens. I incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Heart Centered Therapy (HCT), guided imagery, art, and play therapy techniques.
I am currently registered with the Victims Compensation Program (VCP) and accepting referrals.
My goal is to help individuals, couples, and families to release their traumas without overwhelming them, to help them find healthier ways of communicating and regain the ability to live with themselves as well as others.
