"If you change your mind, you can change yourself, your relationships and your life."

Hello! My name is Desiree and I am here to help.

Are you ready to create positive changes in your life? Congratulations! You’ve taken the first courageous step in your healing. You were probably debating whether seeking help is your best option. I know this can be scary. I am glad that even though you may be unsure, you did it anyway and I am very glad that you are here. There are times in our lives when we need to reach out for help. We need someone to walk with us as we find new, healthier ways to create the life we want. I can be that sure and steady hand to walk with you during this time of transition and transformation.

I am a relationship therapist.  What this means to you is that I will help you to work on the most important relationship there is—the one with yourself. Whether we work as an individual or as a couple, the goal is the same: improve the quality of the relationship. Often this will mean, better self-awareness, processing of underlying trauma, anxiety, depression anger and other non-useful mechanisms that are no longer serving you. 

I am a trained EMDR therapist. EMDR is a transformative therapeutic modality when working with trauma, anxiety, depression and negative self-esteem.  With EMDR, we identify your negative core beliefs that have been plaguing you, sometimes your whole life. We replace these beliefs with more adaptive AND accurate truths about yourself.  

When working with couples, I believe that there are typically attachment wounds at play. I utilize Emotionally Focused Therapy or EFT to move toward healing attachment wounds.

In addition to EMDR and EFT, I am well versed in CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). Additionally, I utilize mindfulness, solution focused therapy and other therapeutic modalities. I help people to work through a wide range of obstacles and I am passionately committed to helping my clients realize their full potential. 

Contact me today if you're ready to start working towards the life you want. Together, we can get you there.

Compassionate & Professional

I care about you, your family, and your story. You can trust that I will treat you with respect, dignity and compassion in every interaction, while maintaining the highest standards for integrity and ethics.

"If you don't like something, change it.

If you can't change it, change how you think about it.”
