As a passionate trauma therapist specializing in EMDR, I strive to Inspire Hope, help people find hope and build strength to walk through the challenges of life. By building a safe place and therapeutic connection, my clients can be vulnerable and feel supported. I graduated from Ottawa University, Master of Professional Counseling and specialized in the Treatment of Trauma, Abuse and Deprivation. I chose to specialize in trauma therapy because there are deep wounds we try to ignore and hide from others. These wounds may affect the trajectory of a person’s life in countless ways. Trauma is subjective to the person; nobody may tell you what you have survived through isn’t traumatic. These events may cause emotional, physical, interpersonal and relational challenges and affect your school, employment and financial freedoms. I am a Licensed Associate Counselor with the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health and Certified Family Trauma Professional with the Arizona Trauma Institute.
I enjoy working with adolescents, adults, couples and families, I’ve also worked with individuals with substance abuse and co-occurring diagnoses. EMDR therapy is my specialty, a method I use to help process trauma and have witnessed incredible transformations. I trained through EMDRIA International Association.
I want to help you through your journey, to come walk with you through the darkness so you can find a reason to smile again.
