Role at Evergreen: Clinician

I strive to create a warm and accepting environment where clients feel safe to explore their issues while embarking on their healing journey. I believe that through the therapeutic process clients can achieve freedom from trauma, relief of their symptoms, and a newfound sense of hope for their future. I use EMDR therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to guide the treatment process while collaborating with each client to create a customized treatment plan.

Why I do this work

I started out in this profession wanting to be of service to others and then along the road discovered my own healing journey that needed to take place. After engaging in my own work and EMDR therapy I have become a strong believer in the power of the therapeutic process and that generational patterns and cycles of trauma can be broken. I know firsthand the courage and determination it takes to open up and dive into difficult material but also know the benefits and rewards that can be reaped from this process and take that hope into each session.

The best part of my job

It is an honor and a privilege to witness the courage and resiliency my clients have as they face their trauma and pain. It is a joy to celebrate with them when they get to a place of freedom from their past, relief from their symptoms and no longer have anything holding them back from reaching their goals in life.

How I spend my free time

You can find me either outdoors hiking around Mount Diablo and going to the beach, or spending a quiet evening with a good book or binge-watching movies with my family.
