Services

I realize that no two people are the same so I will partner with you to identify goals that you want to work on. If you feel like you’re “not yourself,” having emotional ups and downs, having trouble feeling really connected to others, difficulty communicating with your partner or others because they just don’t really understand what you’re going through, I can help. You don’t have to fight this fight alone. What you’re going through is very common and you can get better!

My practice specializes in treating individuals, couples and families and I offer expertise in dealing with:

  • Family Conflict (strained relationship with parents, siblings,
  • Historical Trauma (examples might include abuse or neglect as a child, poor attachment with caregivers)
  • PTSD
  • Postpartum Mood Disorders (depression, anxiety, OCD)
  • Birth Trauma
  • Pregnancy and infant loss and grief

I specialize in a therapy called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). EMDR was initially developed to help people recover from Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, but can be used for so much more! If you’re having thoughts like “I’m not good enough”, “I’m unlovable”, “I’m not safe” or “I’m responsible (for everything)”, EMDR can help! Together we can untangle negative thoughts and clear out any memories that might be keeping you in a cycle of hurt.

People often report very quick relief after participating in EMDR therapy. It kicks your mind into processing information in a fast, efficient way, helping you to recover from past trauma, distressing memories and deep down thoughts and feelings that have been keeping you stuck.
