Some people have waited a long time and have dealt with something difficult, even becoming accustomed to discomfort or a painful experience before seeking help. Others may desire increased satisfaction in life and are seeking understanding and a greater sense of wellbeing. Whether you have a clear need in seeking counseling, such as a crisis, traumatic experience, or significant life change or a more subtle sense of wanting greater fulfillment and life satisfaction, the counseling process can be helpful in personal understanding, healing and change, creating the potential for improving how we relate to life, ourselves and others.I am especially passionate about helping people heal from traumatic experiences and their aftereffects. I am an EMDR Certified Therapist and Consultant, supporting other therapists in learning EMDR. I also have special interest and experience in approaching recovery from a wellness based perspective, anxiety disorders, depression, relationship and self esteem issues and loss.Everyone wants a good life not just an alleviation of problems and symptoms. Both as a therapist and simply as a human being, I have great appreciation for how we create meaning, purpose and fulfillment in our lives. I’m privileged to be a part of that journey with my clients.
