I am so glad you are here.

  

I've spent the last decade learning and practicing mindfulness and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). 

 

I am Certified in Eye Movement Desensitization (EMDR) and have found EMDR can shift negative core beliefs in transformative ways.  I am a EMDRIA Consultant-in-training and provide EMDR Consultation to EMDRIA EMDR therapists seeking certification.  

 I am also a Certified Perinatal trauma Specialist.  I have specific training in Perinatal Mental Health and receive ongoing perinatal training and consultation in my practice. 

  NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) treats CPTSD and provides a safe framework for addressing attachment, relationships, and developmental trauma. I have completed level II NARM training and continue NARM consultation. 

I am a Kansas City native.  I am affirming and believe Black Lives Matter.   I love traveling, learning, gardening, design, art history, and acupressure.
