Psychological Consultation


As a Psychological Consultant, I work with writers and producers on films and television shows such as Handmaid’s Tale, Mom, and Grey's Anatomy to ensure character portrayals of mental illness are accurate and fair.

The residual effects of both acute and chronic traumas in our past can influence our present lives in unhelpful ways. EMDR is a specific therapy that is is proven to be successful in alleviating trauma related symptoms. For more info about EMDR and the details of an EMDR session, click here.

How I Can Help

I became a therapist because I was once stuck and a therapist helped me to understand what was preventing me from moving forward. Now, it is my joy to help others in the same way.   I am a certified EMDR trauma therapist, and I also use DBT, CBT, narrative and transpersonal principles in my work.  I specialize in attachment and relationship issues, eating disorders, addictions, trauma, depression and existential crisis.  Our work will be collaborative, strength-focused and individualized to your needs. Call or email anytime for a free consultation. Wishing you wellness always, Dr. Holly

In 2014, I had the honor of attending the second annual East West Medical Conference hosted by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
