I work with adults and teens who are experiencing chronic or acute PTSD , anxiety, depression and their related disorders. As an EMDRIA Certified Clinician and an EMDRIA Approved Consultant, I have found that Eye Movement Reprocessing and Desensitization (EMDR) is one of the best methods to stimulate the brain’s natural ability to move toward health. I also incorporate Narrative therapy and Internal Family Systems into the work. I have specialized training in racialized trauma, early trauma protocol, attachment-based EMDR, and complex dissociation.

I use a collaborative approach and an empowerment model to increase your choices and control which will allow us to create the conditions necessary to access your brain’s adaptive information processing (AIP) system using EMDR. This system will support and guide the process that heals your traumatic injuries and promotes new possibilities for your life.

It is important to me that I explicitly acknowledge that white supremacy impacts every single aspect of our lives as citizens in the United States, including every single aspect of the mental health system.  I strive to understand my own conditioning within this system and intentionally engage in an anti-racism practice model.

I am an approved therapist with the Veteran’s Resilience Project. www.resiliencemn.org
