Finding contentment and joy can be difficult when struggling with distressing or painful circumstances. My passion is to help people find relief from distress and develop a sense of peace or contentedness. I specialize in counseling individual clients; you are welcome to invite a loved one to join you in your sessions. We will focus on the significant symptoms you are facing and once you are feeling better, can explore and find answers to the underlying reasons for the distress to benefit your long-term emotional and relational health. I am a Certified EMDR Therapist ( for information).
Present day symptoms often have roots in one's past. Working toward healing from traumas of the past allows living in the present to be more joyful and being in relationship, whether personal or professional, is more fulfilling. EMDR therapy is one treatment method for trauma and abuse recovery.
I protect your privacy by doing all billing and check your insurance to identify benefits; unfortunately, there is no guarantee of coverage until the session is billed and processed. I share office space with The Psychiatric Center & Associates, Ltd. in West County and Alpha Omega Christian Counseling in South County.
