Description

I work with adults who are interested in using Safety and Attachment Focused EMDR with a polyvagal-informed lens to heal from trauma. If you are looking for a therapist that is skilled and experienced as well as kind-hearted, funny and down-to-earth, I invite you to reach out. I will get back to you within 48-hours. Our work together can safely be done in-person or virtually.
