About me

LThompson Maroon glasses_edited.jpg


I have been a therapist for over 14 years, and I love my work. I am passionate about helping people achieve a deeper understanding of themselves and reach their full potential in life.​

My work with clients is flexible, person-centered, and trauma-informed. With humor and compassion, I strive to create a positive and collaborative relationship with my clients in order to create a safe space for self-exploration that inspires positive change.

Most of my practice has been dedicated to working with clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, relationship challenges, and chronic health issues. My approach to therapy is intuitive and tailored to the unique needs and goals of each of my clients. I help my clients acquire new insight into how their problems have evolved in their lives and provide guidance that will help them find solutions. Using EMDR and hypnosis, I am able to bring symptom and stress relief to clients within a limited number of sessions.

My goal is to help you find this resilience.
