I suggest that a primary barrier to therapeutic change for the client who has experienced relational trauma in early childhood is the limited ability to use one's associative memory during interpersonal exploration.

I work extensively with clients dealing with various addictions, dual diagnosis, eating and mood disorders, trauma , woman's issues, and family relationship conflicts.
Relationships take work! Whether its your relationship with yourself, your spouse, your family or your co-workers, it's all about communication. Using a holistic approach, I can help you find your way through the barriers that have created stress or caused other obstacles in your life. I know that one person or a supportive therapeutic experience can have the power to change one's perspective and make a huge positive difference in your life. There is always hope and I believe more than anything that everyone's story matters.

Addiction, is a coping skill some people use to cope with issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma , etc.
I believe that the key to finding inner strength and balance is within all of us. I specialize in empowering people who suffer from addiction, substance abuse, and mood disorders (anxiety, depression, anger) to take control of their lives. Substance abuse and addiction is a disease that effects the entire family, therefore family counseling and co-dependence therapy is a very important part of my treatment.

I have experience in inpatient and outpatient settings working with eating disorders, addictions, depression and anxiety, and trauma . I understand and respect the mind-body connection and how it can be an avenue for healing and change.I see the therapeutic relationship as a partnership and I provide a safe, comfortable and compassionate space. This space allows individuals to openly explore thoughts, emotions and behavior patterns, while learning to express emotions and relieve distress in a healthy way. I balance this with an authentic and direct approach which guides and challenges clients to move forward in their growth process.

I have been very effective in helping people find relief from anxiety, depression, and trauma , as well as improving the quality of their life and relationships. I provide a thorough assessment followed by a collaboratively developed treatment plan to effectively address your individual situation. My Goal is to treat you as a whole person - biological, psychological, relational and spiritual. Often talk therapy alone will not be as effective as it could be when combined with appropriate adjunctive treatment(s) and I will refer you to the appropriate specialist(s) or resources when needed.

My goal is to gently lead clients toward discovering their blocks to personal growth and fulfillment. I believe it is vital to develop coping strategies in order to experience relief from painful symptoms while gaining insight into your core beliefs. These beliefs can create blocks to achieving the life you want. They govern the way you walk through the world, your thoughts, feelings and behavior. You are not what happened to you, you are what you choose to become. My specialties include individuals seeking to gain mood regulation, recover from trauma , improve self-esteem and create healthy relationships.

You may be a parent worried about your teenager, a college student struggling to become independent, or an adult feeling "stuck" or unhappy in life. These are all very familiar experiences that I treat within my private practice. I have been helping adolescents, young adults & their families adapt, grow and thrive for over twenty years. Whether it is helping with the normal growing pains that are present at any age or helping to identify and address more serious issues (chronic mental illness, trauma , addiction, abuse, attachment disruptions/adoption), creating a supportive therapeutic environment to maximize healthy growth is my goal.
