Individual Psychotherapy

I work with you collaboratively to support getting you through the most difficult times or by helping you fine-tune your personal development to become the best version of yourself.

Attachment-Focused EMDR

Trained by Dr. Laurel Parnell, I work with single incident and complex trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, and many other types of trauma.

Sports & Business Performance

You want to strategically optimize your mind to perform at your highest level with confidence. With 25 years of experience coaching, teaching, and performing at the highest levels I can guide you past internal barriers to achieve optimal functioning while remaining true to yourself.

Grief and Loss

The loss of a loved one, family member, pet, or friend is one of the most profound experiences of emotional pain that can be felt or experienced. When it comes to grief 'the only way out is through' and I can help guide you through your loss one step at a time to gently support you with empathy and understanding.
