I believe that individuals have a great capacity to grow and change through psychotherapy. My goal is to help patients better understand themselves by developing insight into their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. To facilitate this process, I provide a safe and supportive environment in which counterproductive patterns of behavior are examined. I specialize in treating individuals and couples with issue of anxiety & depression, low self-esteem, postpartum depression, parenting issues, sexual & physical abuse, domestic violence, trauma, and work-related stress.

I also provide sex therapy with individuals and couples. I am excited to offer Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), an evidence-based brief therapy using rapid eye movements to heal PTSD, phobias, depression, and anxiety. For more information, visit http://acceleratedresolutiontherapy.com/

My goal as a psychotherapist is to provide a safe and supportive environment in which counterproductive patterns of behavior are examined within the therapeutic relationship. Patients often describe me as "warm, empathic, interactive, and direct."

Daring Way(tm) Weekend Intensives

Contact me to find out about my upcoming weekend intensives...I am a Certified Daring Way(tm) Facilitator (CDWF). The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings. During the process we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living.
