Women's Therapy: Discover your best self
I love working with courageous women who value self-exploration and who are open to creating lasting change in their life. It brings me absolute joy seeing women who are struggling with anxiety and shame find peace with being their authentic selves. When we work together, I want you to feel fully understood and heard. During therapy I offer new insights, support, motivate, and challenge when needed. I am filled with compassion and conviction to guide women toward a life you wholeheartedly love. You are deserving and worthy of change in your life. I would be thrilled to take this journey of self-discovery with you.

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing
Services are tailored to achieve your individual goals, please let me know your needs. I work with a variety of women’s issues which can be helped by utilizing a therapy option I offer called EMDR therapy.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an integrative psychotherapy approach that helps people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years of traditional “talk therapy” to make a difference. When a person is very upset, their brain cannot process information as it does ordinarily. One moment becomes “frozen in time,” and remembering a trauma may feel as bad as going through it the first time because the images, sounds, smells, and feelings haven’t changed. These memories can have a lasting negative effect that infers with the way a person sees the world and the way they relate to other people. EMDR seems to have a direct effect on the way that the brain processes information. Normal information processing is resumed, so following a successful EMDR session you still remember what happened, but it is less upsetting. To date, EMDR therapy has helped millions of people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress.
What kind of problems can EMDR treat?
The studies to date show a high degree of effectiveness with the following conditions:
Anxiety-panic attacks, phobias, fears
Traumatic Events-accidents, natural disasters, etc.
Injury/Pain disorders/Chronic illness
