Therapy and EMDR for Children, Adolescents and Adults


Due to concerns about COVID-19, I am offering both office and telehealth sessions through a HIPPA-compliant service.

Are you or is someone you care about struggling with a difficult issue? It can be painful and unnecessary to do so alone. I invite you to contact me. I am prepared to help you alleviate distressing situations and lead a more fulfilling life.

I am a licensed clinical social worker and certified EMDR therapist with over 20 years of experience providing therapy and counseling for children, adolescents students and adults. Areas of focus include (but is not limited to) the implications of trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, academic and job performance, ADHD and health concerns. I work hard to provide you and those you care about with compassionate, supportive and evidence-based care that is always based on your strengths, rather than your deficits. I am deeply respectful of individuals of all backgrounds and faiths, and I am GLBTQ supportive.
