As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I will collaborate with you in developing problem-solving skills to enhance the coping strategies that will help you deal with depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues and other anxiety-producing experiences. I focus on understanding your symptoms within the context of your interpersonal relationships.

EMDR therapy is guided by the Adaptive Information Processing model which addresses the unprocessed memories that appear to set the basis for a wide range of dysfunction. A number of neurophysiological studies have documented the rapid post-treatment EMDR effects.

EMDR certified therapist, trained in Memory Reconsolidation Flash Technique & EMDR, EMDR Attachment-Focused Model to heal the Parent and the Child, Motivational Interviewing, Seeking Safety, Trauma Resiliency Model Level, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Positive Psychology interventions, Attachment in Couple Therapy, and Gottman Method.
