Everyone faces challenges in life, and many people need help walking through those difficulties. My approach to counseling involves providing a supportive, growth-oriented professional relationship that can help you access your own strengths and resources in order to cope with overwhelming problems, as well as teaching new skills that can add new dimensions to your ability to heal, grow, and change. You are unique, and the particularities of your situation are yours alone. Recognizing this, I seek to create an individualized approach to helping your with your problems.

While each case is unique, it is important to use evidence-based treatment approaches when helping people grow, change, or heal. I specialize in helping people recover from trauma, using EMDR and cognitive-focused therapies, and in helping couples using emotionally-focused therapy. These are treatments of choice for these two areas of practice.

I make every effort to help you become your true and full self so that you can recover from your painful past or repair your relationships.
