Ever since we have embarked on our journey through life, we may have had the opportunity to experience love, kindness, joy, or passion—but we may have also experienced pain, discomfort, anger, betrayal, tragedy, or grief. During the moments you’ve experienced the latter it’s very possible the events that took place have been frozen in your mind, making it impossible to forget or process. This may have left you feeling depressed, anxious, mistrusting, stagnant, or even scared. Please do not feel hopeless in your efforts to “fix” yourself. You are not broken or damaged. My goal as your therapist would be to support and empower you on your journey so you can develop a deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you. As a trauma-informed therapist I place an emphasis on EMDR therapy but still hold an eclectic approach because your situation is unique. I am a holistic and culturally sensitive clinician who places a huge importance on building a trusting relationship with you to promote comfortability and security. I am not here to rush you through your process because it can take some time before you feel comfortable sharing. I have experience working with individuals who have trauma, depression, mood disorders, anxiety, relationship difficulties, and life transitioning issues. I am also a Reiki Practitioner and offer distance healing. Together we can explore and understand the reasoning being prominent issues while working towards healing and resolution. I would be honored to assist you on your journey through life.

Hi, I'm Myrna. Do you sometimes feel that you don't fit in or that others are taking advantage of your kindness? Do you feel that others undervalue you and your contributions and that the goal post you have been assigned by others to reach keeps getting moved further away from you? I help abuse victims and survivors to appreciate themselves, their goals, their achievements, and their own individual beauty. Together we can work to help you to separate your individual goals and aspirations from those that you may have adapted in order to please others. Whether it is self-acknowledged engrained attitudes and beliefs acquired from parental, educational, religious, or social conditioning that has caused you to undervalue yourself and value other's opinions of you above your own self-assessment or whether the cause is unknown, I can help you. We will use a solutions-focused approach that utilizes practical and proven techniques that address both your emotional, mental, and physical needs. I incorporate bible verses, history, and personality assessments to assist you in seeing your place in the world and recognizing yourself as a valuable individual. In our sessions together, you will be met with respect and appreciation. I look forward to working with you.
