I believe that life is a journey, and no one should have to travel it alone. I look forward to joining you and I consider it a privilege to walk alongside you as we work through the healing process together. It is important to me to provide a safe place to share your struggles and for you to experience compassion, trust, and connection, as this will help you on your path to healing and deep change.
I have experience working with diverse populations and with clients ranging from early childhood to older adults. I utilize a strength-based approach, with a trauma-focused perspective. I have specific training in EMDR, creative arts therapy, motivational interviewing, and integrative therapeutic techniques.
Presently I am providing telehealth therapy in the states of Florida, Ohio, Idaho, and Iowa, for those who choose the convenience and privacy of having counseling sessions in their home, or in another preferred environment. The additional EMDR training that I have received provides clients with a greater sense of emotional safety, which allows for your online therapy experience to be satisfying and effective. I look forward to working with you on your healing journey.
