About

Are you feeling stuck in your relationships and/or with your feelings? We all run into conflict at times and have brief ups and downs. But when we get stuck - perhaps in a pattern of reacting to "triggers" in a relationship, or in one mood state like depression or anxiety, it can be so frustrating, lonely and feel hopeless at times. I love to facilitate relationships getting unstuck and find the combination of EFT and tools from David Burns' team therapy effective in facilitating this. *See also my Feeing Great Book Club, an educational group to reading this David Burns' self help book, only costing 12$ per session.*
I use rapidly effective methods based on attachment theory and cognitive-behavioral therapy within a cultural context, to facilitate and teach sustainable ways of getting and staying unstuck, to increase safety, intimacy, vitality, ease and happiness, and to move on from therapy. I get feedback after each session so I can tailor my sessions to you.
My sessions are collaborative, empowering, and focused on your goals with clear evidence-based methods. Please contact me to discuss what's going on and how I might be helpful. I look forward to hearing from you. *Note that because I'm focusing on psychotherapy, I'm NOT currently taking patients for only med management/biological consultation.*
