MS, LCPC, EMDR-C, Brainspotting-CMy many years of experience as a psychotherapist and former paramedic help my clients create positive change. All healing occurs in a caring, attuned and therapeutic relationship. To this, I add growing knowledge of how to help the brain heal, regulate and restore itself.
I believe a direct and honest yet nurturing and intuitive approach is the most effective way to cultivate trust in my client relationships. My clients tell me that they appreciate that I “tell it like it is” and provide an objective plan for their healing. I am truly invested in my clients’ success and believe in their ability to heal and find peace.
