I realize that no two people are the same and as such tailor my therapy to meet the specific needs of my clients. Whether you are struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression or any other issue, I will help you recognize underlying problems, fully realize your strengths and adjust certain behaviors and thoughts to see things a different, healthier way.


Brainspotting is a powerful, mindfulness-based, brain/body focused treatment that works by identifying, processing, and releasing stored neurophysiological trauma and pain. Trauma can accumulate and be stored in frozen "trauma capsules" within the deep regions of the brain. A Brain Spot is accessed through eye positioning that correlates with these "capsules" of stored negative energy. Brainspotting goes directly to these deeper places within the brain much more quickly and effectively than many traditional therapies.


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of therapy that helps people heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences. Attention will be given to a negative image, belief, and body feeling related to a specific event, and then to a positive belief that would indicate the issue was resolved. While the client focuses on the upsetting event, the therapist begins sets of side-to-side eye movements, sounds, or taps. The client will be guided to notice what comes to mind after each set. They may experience shifts in insight or changes in images, feelings, or beliefs regarding the event. The sets of eye movements, sounds, or taps are repeated until the event becomes less disturbing.

Internal Family Systems

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is based on the idea that we all have a core Self that embodies our essence and all of our finest qualities, like compassion, creativity, and wisdom. We are born with these qualities, this Self, this Spirit. And as we begin dealing with and relating to the world, we develop inner protectors—parts that want to keep us safe from harm or pain. Some parts do this in an outwardly positive way, such as being a diligent student or hard worker. Other parts protect us in ways that have a more negative effect, such as using alcohol or drugs to keep us from feeling fear or pain. In the IFS Model, we help parts heal not by pushing them away, but by getting to know them better and understanding the underlying hurts. When we heal those wounds, parts then do not need to lead or be so extreme because they begin to trust that we are now safe.


Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on modifying dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts by interrogating and uprooting negative or irrational beliefs. Considered a "solutions-oriented" form of talk therapy, CBT rests on the idea that thoughts and perceptions influence behavior. Feeling distressed, in some cases, may distort one’s perception of reality. CBT aims to identify harmful thoughts, assess whether they are an accurate depiction of reality, and, if they are not, employ strategies to challenge and overcome them.
