EMDR & Brainspotting
I'm trained (level one and two). Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a mental health treatment technique. This method involves moving your eyes a specific way while you process traumatic memories. EMDR's goal is to help you heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences.

Brainspotting (BSP) is a talk therapy that reveals a client's unprocessed traumas through fixed eye positions. Specific eye positions each link to their own “brainspot,” an area of the mind that retains thoughts and emotions.

With years of education and clinical training, I am equipped to provide personalized and effective counseling to individuals, adolescents, young adults, and elders. If you are struggling with relationship issues, cultural identity, depression, anxiety, trauma, or grief, I am here to help.

we help heal the world.”
