Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MA, MSW, LCSW, ACC
I provide a holistic counseling approach providing rapid, positive changes in areas of depression, anxiety, trauma, stress management, relationship, pain management and grief work with adults and children. My resources include the powerful technique of EMDR, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, as well as HYPNOSIS, visual imagery and new thought. Hypnosis is a powerful, effective and immediate tool to bring about profound change. It is useful for eliminating addictive behaviors, improving sports performance, reducing anxiety while giving presentations, taking tests and also used for post surgery healing.
As a trained psychologist, I bring my educational and professional experience to my life coaching and consultation endeavors and utilize the same ethical standards, evidenced-based research and skills that I used in psychotherapy. In my practice, I offer individuals of all ages, couples and families, of all races, orientations and nationalities the opportunity to change and experience growth. I am here to offer help on your journey of discovery and provide support as you pursue your dreams and the happiness you deserve. You don't have to face any problems or challenges alone. I offer a safe place to help you though any struggles.

My focus in treatment is mainly on traumatic experiences, mood disorders, anxiety, dissociative symptoms, and helping you adjust to life's challenges in a healthy way. Using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) helps me do so in an effective, evidence based and efficient manner.
Every person has their own reasons for seeking therapy. Some choose it during a period of major life transitions or hardships, while others may seek out therapy in order to deepen their understanding of themselves. By using a psychodynamic and object relations model I am able to consider the whole person rather than pure symptom reduction. I believe there is both conscious and unconscious meaning to symptoms.
I believe in the process of change and will help my clients to move in a positive direction.

As a LMFT and TBRI Pracitioner, I have learned that many children, families, and individuals suffer from trauma. Often client's diagnosis of PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Bi-Polar, and ADHD are related to early childhood and adult trauma, as well as a lack of early secure attachment to their primary caregiver. Recent studies in Neuroscience confirm that Neuropathways in the brain develop based on these traumas.
