As a licensed psychologist specializing in treating victims of domestic violence, I understand the profound and lasting impact that trauma of this nature can have on an individual's life. These experiences can become deeply ingrained in both the mind and body, affecting how you navigate relationships, approach parenting, and engage in daily living. The trauma from domestic abuse and domestic violence can erode self-esteem and result in a constant state of hypervigilance, leaving you feeling anxious and jumpy, as if you are constantly walking on eggshells. My approach to helping you heal from domestic abuse and domestic violence involves the use of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, which has proven effective in treating trauma associated with such experiences. Through EMDR, we can work together to facilitate the recovery process, increase resilience, establish healthy boundaries, and enhance coping skills. My goal is to empower you to build the resilience needed to manage difficult a relationship, or find the strength to leave it, ultimately facilitating healing and fostering a path toward a healthier, more fulfilling life.

16 Years Experience
Domestic abuse often creates very painful symptoms and is something for which I use a therapy called Prolonged Exposure (PE). In this therapy, we will revisit traumatic situations, process painful emotions, and change unhelpful beliefs about yourself and the world around you as a result of your trauma. People are often amazed at how quickly this treatment can work and by the very meaningful change that can result. For these reasons, this is one of my favorite treatments to provide.
