EMDR Intensive Sessions: I am excited to be offering a whole new way to do therapy: EMDR intensives! An EMDR intensive session is a 3 or 6 hour therapy session in which we use EMDR therapy to uncover and heal past traumas, stuck beliefs or anything else you are not moving past as quickly as you would like. By using these longer sessions, we are able to make progress much more quickly because we are not being interrupted by starting and stopping and losing ground between sessions. If you think this might be a good fit, find out more HERE!

Trauma: I provide EMDR therapy, an integrated treatment approach proven to help with trauma, anxiety or old, stuck negative beliefs by reprocessing negative experiences from the past that contribute to distress today. You can find out more about EMDR by clicking here.
Maternal Mental Health: As a mom myself, I have a passion for helping moms who might experience a difficult period of adjustment or just need support through this joyous and stressful roller-coaster time of life . I have experience helping moms through infertility, pregnancy, the postpartum period, grief/loss and birth trauma. For the 1 in 7 who will experience a postpartum mood or anxiety disorder, I am experienced and trained in perinatal and postpartum mental health through Postpartum Support International.
Coaching : Therapy is a wonderful and much-needed resource, but not everyone needs therapy! Coaching is less focused on past experiences and symptom reduction and is more about helping you reach specific goals.
