Struggles are real... but so is hope
I'm here to stand by your side
as you walk through your journey to happiness
My passion lies in empowering adults and teens to create a sense of personal safety within themselves and their environment, while healing the impact of painful or traumatic experiences. In addition I provide State funded treatment for problem & compulsive gambling. Using a trauma-informed, person-centered approach equips my clients to take an active role in the therapy process, working to discover their own solutions. I’m skillful in helping people achieve full and lasting recovery through the use of multiple therapeutic modalities –promoting emotional regulation which opens the pathway to process deeper issues.
I am trained in EMDR and Brainspotting which guide my trauma processing models. I implement play therapy techniques when working with clients of all ages to harness the therapeutic powers of play to resolve psychosocial difficulties. My experience enables me to offer effective outpatient, individualized, psychological care. I treat a number of mental health disorders, and provide a neutral ground to individuals, families, and couples. .
Struggles are real but so is hope. I specialize in trauma, gambling addiction/substance abuse, adolescents and women's issues -- standing by your side as you walk through your journey to happiness.
