My goal is to help you activate your power and lead a life that you find meaningful. Many of us suffer really difficult experiences in our past and may continue to suffer without knowing a way to feel better. We work together to better understand, reprocess, and resolve that suffering by combining therapy-enhanced coping with your own organic coping skills. By becoming more present in the here-and-now you can begin to have the most influence on your life. Within our relationship, we explore your thoughts, feelings, images, and behavior patterns and then apply concrete skills to make the lasting changes you want.
I am really excited about the impact Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) form of therapy, Integrated Treatment of Complex Trauma for Adolescents (ITCT-A), and Aggression Replacement Training (ART) offerings have had for my clients.
Please follow this link to watch a video on how EMDR may be helpful to you or your loved one:
Please call or email me for an individual, couples or family therapy consultation for you, your teen, or your family. We can schedule you for an office session (if appropriate), tele-health consultation, or telephone consultation.
