    “Meet the ego with absolute love, compassion and patience. Do not indulge it or resist its appearance. Hold it in a loving embrace and let it unravel itself in the stillness of the heart. Let it show you what needs to be healed, the hurt underneath the turmoil. Your presence is the healing agent, your love is what allows it to dissolve.”


Licensed Mental Health Counselor & EMDR Certified Therapist


Somewhere along life’s path, we took detours leading us further and further away from our authentic Self because we needed to survive. Now, it is time to thrive. As your counselor, it’s my hope to help steer you back toward your truth and purpose…..toward who you are meant to be. From a collaborative and relational approach, I will work with you to accomplish your goals. I will help you uncover your own healing resources and strengths through the meaningful connection of the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical. With guidance & healing, you will experience resolution. And from there, wonderful things can happen……

Love after Love

~ Derek Walcott, 1992 Nobel prize winner for literature.

The time will come, when

with elation,

you will greet yourself arriving

at your own door,

in your own mirror.

And each will smile at the other’s welcome,

and say, “Sit here. Eat. Relax.”

You will love again this stranger who is your Self.

Give wine. Give bread.

Give back your heart,

to itself,

to this stranger who has loved you

all your life, 

whom you ignored for another,

but who knows you by heart.

Take down the love letters from the book shelf,

the photographs and the desperate notes.

Peel you self-image from the mirror.

Sit. Here. Now. Feast on your life.

Fall in love again with your Self and with all of Life.



The work that we did in our sessions were the first steps on a journey that has changed the course of my entire life. Since I last saw you, there has been no end to the miracles I have experienced. Joy, purpose, and gratitude are abundant in my life. I use the tools you taught me almost every day. I have shared them with my friends and family. I am so in tune with my thoughts, emotions, and the voice of ego that I have become dear friends with my inner self. I listen to, protect, and nurture her. She in turn has showed me what still needs healing. She trusts me thus life has become a limitless adventure.

Your help last year was invaluable. To say I appreciate what we were able to accomplish is the biggest understatement of my life. Your services came at exactly the right time in my life for numerous reasons and I just can't say enough good things about your help. I feel like I'm on the right track with my life for the first time in a long, long while, and I don't think it would be possible without the therapy I received from you. Thank you.



Sacred Healing Place Client

Before EMDR therapy, I repeatedly pushed people away in fear that they would abandon me. EMDR therapy helped me to gain a sense of power back and realize I wasn't being abandoned at all. It was very healing to release that false belief. This has strengthened my trust in the friendships I have now.

EMDR brought me back to a marriage that ended in divorce 25 years ago. I realized I was allowing myself to be disrespected in my current relationship because I had given my emotional power away during my marriage. I no longer allow myself to be disrespected and am now in a healthy relationship. EMDR allowed me to return to my true self and be happier than I've been in years.
