Personal Experience & Biography

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a passion for treating relational trauma, getting to the underlying issues, and helping clients live better day to day. I work with adults, couples, and families and have over 13 years of clinical experience with expertise in helping people and relationships heal from difficult experiences and thrive. I tend to be a direct therapist and speak openly with my clients about their hopes for therapy as well as my perceptions and recommendations. I specialize in treating mood issues, relationship conflict and communication, and trauma. This can include anxiety, relationship distress, affair recovery, traumatic or adverse events, and personal growth. 

I am a certified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist and an approved EMDR consultant.  EMDR is a model of therapy that helps people heal from trauma, distressing life events, and difficult memories. I specialize in treating relational trauma and provide EMDR to couples and individuals in an intensive approach to accelerate symptom reduction and address underlying issues.  I also provide consultation in the community for providers and programs using EMDR in their treatment settings. 

I am a collaborative practitioner and welcome opportunities to coordinate care with psychiatrists, therapists, or any professional that is supporting my client’s treatment goals. I am a culturally humble, LGBTQ+ informed and affirming therapist. 

If you are interested in EMDR or have any questions about my treatment model or approach please do not hesitate to schedule a consultation.
