I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and EMDR-Certified Therapist. With over 20 years of experience in the mental health field, I have acquired knowledge across the spectrum of client needs. This experience has included work in psychiatric hospital settings, outpatient community mental health, school-based counseling, and private practice.
As an EMDR-Certified Therapist, I have specialized expertise in offering EMDR as a modality to treat issues such as PTSD and other reactions to traumatic events, depression, anxiety, attachment issues, and panic. EMDR is an evidence-based therapeutic tool I find very helpful for my clients.
I work with individuals age 14 and older through a collaborative and systemic approach. My particular specialties include working with clients who have experienced trauma, LGBTQ concerns, and high achieving and/or Performance Enhancement needs.
Originally from Southern California, I am an out member of the LGBTQ community and an avid distance runner and triathlete. I consider it my calling to help you thrive as your authentic self.
