I specialize in trauma therapy. My work is centered in EMDR Therapy. Art Therapy is part of my practice and I incorporate Mindfulness and Self Compassion.
My career spans over more than twenty years, providing in depth, evidence based psychotherapy for adults and children. My approach weaves together developmental, attachment and integrative perspectives. Our early experience is our foundation, our present time is our opportunity to transform our lives. With support and healing, we have the opportunity to build resilience, empowerment and purpose.
