May the Sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being. May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life. - Apache blessing.

A Bit About Therapy
I am well versed in several therapeutic treatment approaches, however EMDR ( Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) is my primary therapy approach. EMDR is a trauma focused, and Person Centered mode of therapy. In the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results.
