"I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, eating disorders, and addiction. These and other disorders often begin, in part, as coping mechanisms to deal with uncomfortable life experiences. Unfortunately, the more time spent engaging in them, the harder it is to stop, as neural pathways in the brain are being rewired, which will reinforce the behavior. What was once a coping mechanism now becomes a significant source of distress and actually impairs functioning in all areas of life. My approach to therapy is strongly influenced by Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB), Psychodynamic Theory, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)"

"Addiction is a frightening disorder. I have been treating clients suffering from addiction for five years. In addition to treating addiction, I also treat anxiety, depression, isolation, hopelessness, and low self-esteem. These disorders and daily difficulties, I believe, stem from feeling lost in the world, from being hurt or traumatized by others in your life, and most of all, from feeling disconnected to your true authentic self and the world around you. I use a combination of science-based interventions, along with holistic, native and natural-based practices to help others find themselves, their true nature, and true happiness."

For over 20 years I have been helping individuals with depression, anxiety, relationships, life transitions, and aging. Many of my clients are those who experienced abuse, neglect, abandonment or loss early in life. Together we can come to understand how early survival skills may no longer be serving you well and how lessons of the past are hindering the present. I provide a safe space for you to begin healing these wounds."
