might feel like breaking at first. 

I'm an EMDR therapist and work with individuals who are experiencing symptoms of PTSD and Generalized Anxiety.

your story


The trauma you experienced has changed you and left a mark on your soul. Initially, you believed you could return to the way life was. 

It’s in the past and that’s where I’m keeping it.

It worked for a short time, until it all came crashing down. 


First came the tightness in your chest
Then the intrusive memories, nightmares, avoidance, and irritability
You slowly began to distrust the world
Worse though, you’ve started to distrust yourself

The past is always present.


Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) has become your identity. You are no longer able to see the world as you experienced it before the trauma. Now every moment feels dangerous, unpredictable, and threatening. Your world is becoming smaller and smaller and you find yourself pushing your loved ones away.


I love being outdoors

... and you’ll usually find me barefoot during sessions. 


Expressing gratitude is everything.

What you focus on expands and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it. 


I have a passion for teaching.

Outside of session you can find me teaching at the local community college or teaching mental health curriculum to first responder agencies. 

your hope


Life doesn’t have to stay stuck.

It is possible to experience negative life events and live a full life. 

It is possible to move out of the fear and into hope and happiness. 


I want you to imagine your ideal future self

Who will you be?
What will you have? 
What did it take for you to get there?
How did the journey feel?


You deserve to feel alive again.
You deserve to feel free.
You deserve to feel alive again.
You deserve to reconnect with yourself. 
You deserve to be yourself, unapologetically. 

Together, we can do the work. 


Therapy is a deeply personal journey. It’s an honor that clients make the choice to sit with me and share their stories and vulnerability. Our work together becomes part of a long-term strategy for wellness, not a short-term fix.


To watch clients turn their fear into faith and move past their trauma into a place of growth, healing, and self-awareness is amazing. It energizes me and the work I do every day. 


I earned my M.A from University of San Francisco and am currently pursuing my Psy.D. at California Southern University. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California and specialize in PTSD and Generalized Anxiety.
