I help adults find freedom from PTSD, Anxiety and Trauma.
I became a therapist because I believe in the power of relationships. We all have the ability to grow and change, but usually it takes a significant relationship to help motivate us to get there. In our work together, I help you heal and move forward. Anxiety and Trauma can feel debilitating, but relief is possible.
I love helping survivors of sexual assault, abuse and neglect, as well as police officers and fire fighters, achieve relief and freedom from the past.
A Lot Of My Clients Come to Counseling Asking:
How can I stop thinking about this terrible thing that happened to me?
How do I move past my crippling anxiety?
Why hasn’t traditional talk therapy helped me?
How can I stop feeling so ashamed?
I Help By:
Using EMDR to overcome traumatic memories, panic attacks, and stressful life experiences that are preventing you from moving forward.
Using humor to help lighten the mood. Life is serious enough, therapy doesn't have to be in order to feel better.
Using neurofeedback & other mindfulness strategies to help decrease anxiety and stress, as well as enhance and speed up the EMDR process. I use MUSE, a meditation trainer that actually trains you on how to meditate by giving you real-time feedback. This helps lower your fight or flight response and feel better, faster.
Using visualization techniques to help clients experience an overall sense of calm and stop the occurrence of panic attacks.
