I’ve always been passionate about helping people during difficult times.

My training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an empirically supported treatment modality for people struggling with trauma (adult & childhood trauma), anxiety, depression, repressed memories, and unresolved or complicated grief.   I’m also a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor.  My undergraduate and graduate education along with my training has prepared me to provide counseling services to first responders, individual, families, and couples.
