Are recurrent thoughts, beliefs and feelings about past, present or future events preventing you from being at ease with yourself and from connecting with others? I can support you in uncovering what is blocking you and in discovering what works for you to be more present, feel more joyful and connected My clients share that through our work together they feel less anxious and depressed. Call me to set up a free time to meet at my office near South Square Mall in Durham or in Franklin Square in Chapel Hill. 919-724-1002.

Based on my clients' history, goals and interests, we decide which approaches to use: EMDR (for PTSD, anxiety, depression, dream/sleep disturbance), REBT (for ineffective thinking patterns that contribute to emotional pain and behaviors), Chair Work (to address decision making, communication, inner conflicts and critical thoughts).

My background lends itself well to engaging clients in experiential processes to heal or transform a problem. So sometimes its less talking about an issue and more focused on a process of becoming aware, discovering a solution, or experiencing a shift in their body to a more relaxed state.
