I started in this field by working with children and adults with autism. I always knew I wanted to do more, so I pursued psychology. I have always been passionate about talking to people and helping them get to the root core of problems. I grew up with trauma and have worked through it using EMDR. I want to be able to give back and help others who have the same experiences. I am very comfortable in my approach and am nonjudgmental. I have done EMDR work pro bono for responders. My experience along with growing up in an alcoholic environment that ended in divorce led me to become very knowledgeable about substance abuse, treating trauma, and working with couples to repair their marriage. In my own personal life, I have been able to avoid the cycles that were there for two generations before me.
