I have been in the mental health field for seven years and started my private practice in 2017. I enjoy working with my clients to meet their treatment goals and improve their lives. Clients decrease negative self-talk, develop skills to manage symptoms of trauma, co-dependency, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, addictive behaviors, and anger. Engage in healthy relationships with significant others, family members, friends, and co-workers. I use psychotherapy, family therapy, neuro-therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy, auricular acupuncture, hypnotherapy, and a mind-body approach to help my clients experience a fulfilling, rewarding, and productive life.
