Individual Therapy

I believe that everyone has the capacity for growth and change, and is equipped with the inner resources to do so...


 EMDR, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is an evidence-based     treatment for trauma, phobias, and                other challenging feelings.


 I understand it may be difficult to reach      out for help, it's important we go at                                 your pace...
