My goal is to meet each of my clients where they are. I am present-focused, using the past to inform the present. I find that unresolved experiences and emotions flourish; creating emotional pain, difficulty in communication and ultimately have an extended negative impact on our most important relationships.
I draw from a wide variety of orientations, methods and treatment techniques including but not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic, Buddhist Psychology and Gestalt. I have Level 2 trained Gottman Couples Counselor and am trained in EMDR. I feel the best way to meet each client’s individual goals and needs is to blend these techniques and create a tailor-made treatment plan that is unique to each client and can be flexible and dynamic.
Anxiety and Depression: Address symptoms, build coping skills, and identify resources to live a fulfilling life.
Couples Therapy: Learn communication skills, coping tools to understand and be understood.
Trauma Recovery: Process deeply distressing experiences and move through the healing process.
EMDR: Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing is a specialized treatment that works with client's process of integrating information during traumatic experiences in their life. The purpose is to decrease the emotional charge of painful past experiences and allow your brain to re-process those events in a healthy way.
