Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)  is an evidence-based approach that has helped clients overcome a range of mental health conditions. CBT provides practical tools and strategies that can help you manage your thoughts, feelings and behaviors in a more positive and healthy way. 


Psychotherapy sessions are about creating a space where you can share your thoughts and feelings without fear of judgement. With guidance, we'll work together to develop a deeper understanding of your experiences and identify any patterns of behavior that may be causing you distress. 

Trauma Therapy

I  specialize in helping individuals heal from past traumas. I offer a supportive environment where you can work through difficult emotions and begin to move forward. Using evidence-based techniques, I will help you learn how to cope and heal from your trauma. 

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is offered.
