I believe the most important component to successful therapy is trust and connection between the client and his or her therapist. It is my intention to build a trusting relationship and to embark on a collaborative journey with each client. My passion is working with people to help them overcome obstacles, to enable them to reach and maintain goals to live a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life. I am an empathetic listener, compassionate and sincere in my desire to be of service by creating a safe environment for clients to explore ideas, to feel empowered and to practice new skills.
My practice includes working with individuals and couples. My experience lies in the treatment of depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, Trichotillomania, relationship issues, life transitions, self-esteem, coping skills, anger management, grief and loss, addictions and other obstacles. I use a variety of approaches to meet the needs of each client.
When working with couples I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and/or Gottman Therapy. I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Image Transformation Therapy (ImTT) and utilize Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) as well as components of other theories to meet the needs of each client.
