EMDR Therapist specialized in working with complex trauma, being a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) and navigating chronic illness.

 

Welcome and I appreciate you being here!

Clients I work with often resonate with these sentiments: 

 

 

I identify with being a People-Pleaser and often put others' needs before my own. I have trouble making decisions, setting boundaries or knowing what I like. 

 

 

I have always felt like I am either not enough or too much for people.

 

 

 

I have experienced trauma in my life and it has become really hard to trust myself and others.

 

 

 

I have recently discovered that I am a Highly Sensitive Person and I want to build on  more ways to protect my energy and boundaries so I can feel less overstimulated.

 

 

 

I feel like I should be over things that happened but my body keeps responding as if it is still happening and these things in my past still affect me.

 

 

 

I’m wanting a kind of therapy that involves more than just talk, sometimes I don’t have the words for what I’m really feeling. 

 

A Space for You

I love supporting people who are feeling this way process what they are going through and what they have gone through.

 

 

I bring a gentle, empathetic, creative and compassionate approach to our work and adore helping clients tap into the resources and imagination they already have.  

 

 

In our time together you can move toward feeling relief from trauma while being more grounded and trusting of yourself.

 

 

We create a validating space that honors all of you while I guide you in healing from the experiences that are impacting you.

 

 

We build creative tools collaboratively that can help you strengthen your relationship with your intuition, sense of self and expressiveness.
