I find that each individual has a unique situation (bio, psycho, social, spiritual, sexual) which requires me to be flexible in my therapeutic approach. My education, training and experience has given me a solid foundation in which I am able to use an approach that will compliment your goals for counseling.
EMDR For Trauma
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma.

Intimate Partner Betrayal Trauma
If someone close to you has ever broken your trust, you’ve probably felt the sting of betrayal. This pain can leave you feeling disoriented and devastated. Any type of betrayal can cause emotional distress, but you might experience lingering trauma when someone you depend on to respect your needs and generally help safeguard your well-being violates the trust you’ve placed in them.

When you rely on someone for basic needs as well as love and safety, you can feel devastated to find out that they have been living a double life. Betrayal can begin to degrade self-esteem, emotional well-being, and the ability to form attachments with others. Together we can work to overcome the devastation of betrayal.

If you feel like you have suffered from the damage of a religious institution, you are in the right place.
Honoring Your Cycle
Life is made up of patterns and rhythms. This is especially true for women. We are not the same throughout the month. We have different levels of energy and athletic ability, we have different social needs, different creative and critical thinking ability and different nutritional needs throughout the month. So why do we do the same things day after day, week after week?
