Licensed Clinical Social Worker Trauma/EMDR Specialist

Gender: Female

Languages Spoken:

NOW...a therapy that comes to you! I come to you online...effective, convenient, safe. It's easier and more personal than you might think.  Let me offer you a 30 minute demo.  Please visit my website for more information on online therapy.

I know life often presents challenges, at times leaving us feeling stuck and even feeling hopeless, unable to be who we want to be…to do what we want to do…to achieve the dreams we aspire to.  I am here to help you break through the emotional  “wall” that prevents you from moving towards your desires…to break free from the limitations of your past…to take flight into your potential with new hope, skill and joy. 

By integrating a blend of therapies such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), the Flash Technique, guided imagery, experiential exercises, body awareness, mindfulness and others, we are able to create a program that accesses your own inherent healing abilities that can make real internal changes. I work with you to achieve the deep, real internal changes that release you from old patterns and perceived personal limitations.

I invite you to visit my website to learn more about how I work.  I look forward to meeting you soon!
