Individual Therapy

Are you feeling stuck in the pain of past trauma? Maybe you've tried to help yourself and feel discouraged that nothing changes. Life feels hard. Rest assured, you can feel better. Change can happen. You can feel more connected with yourself and others. Together, we can do this. 

To support and guide you, I use Gestalt therapy, EMDR, and Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy. We will explore current problems, as well as how the past affects your present life. We will uncover patterns keeping you stuck and empower you to make new choices. 

EMDR is a powerful psychotherapy for the treatment of trauma. The therapy is proven effective and often works faster than traditional counseling. EMDR can provide much-needed relief, whether from big traumas, like abuse or assault, or smaller traumas, such as an unhealthy relationship or stressful job.

Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT) is effective for helping individuals work through relationship issues with self and others. EFIT helps clients learn to trust their own experiences and how to be themselves in relation to others, developing deeper relationship satisfaction and self-acceptance.

Gestalt therapy helps you to gain a new sense of self by increasing your self-awareness and responsibility for choices keeping you unhappy. Without self-awareness, it can feel like "sleepwalking" through life. Gestalt is an experiential therapy, focusing on the "here and now" and the past as it relates to the present. 


Many people feel that their difficulties are overwhelming. Rest assured that healing can happen.

You can feel joy and connection to yourself and others. You just need the right support in getting there.
