My own journey and recovery from narcissistic parental abuse has given me a first-hand perspective and understanding of my clients. Therapeutically I have found that EMDR (a technique to clear away trauma and reprogram negative beliefs) in conjunction with Dr. McBride's 5 step model are extremely effective methods for helping clients recover. Some common issues I work with include PTSD, stress and anger management, grief, anxiety, depression, OCD, panic disorders, addictions and phobias. I am passionate about creating a safe, nurturing environment in which to heal.
