Bio

My unique path in life and therapeutic training has led me to specialize in working with clients who have experienced difficult events, including loss of a pet or loved one. I also specialize in improving performance such as peak performance training and dealing with anxiety to perform. I have been trained in Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), the leading treatment for trauma, to help alleviate mental and physical pain due to unhelpful thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Through these different perspectives I look forward to walking with you on your unique path towards a better-balanced life.

As a past trainer for animals appearing in varied media, I understand both the pressure of performance and the incredible bonds we develop with animals. My personal connection with a high-intensity performance atmosphere has shown me the detrimental effects of performance anxiety alongside the perpetual drive to become better at one’s craft. Balance is key.

Whether it is dealing with complicated grief or enhancing your ideal performance, our therapeutic work can provide needed support. I have focused my training and education to help you with these often under-recognized issues. I creatively connect EMDR, expressive arts, sandtray, and meditation to suit your unique needs and help you live your best life.
