Announcement icon Currently taking new clients on line only, not in person.
I am dually licensed as an MFT and a Psychologist. I am also a hypnotherapist. I treat many conditions. Depression, Anxiety and PTSD for example. I believe that the therapeutic connection is essential; I respect my youngers as well as my elders. However, I believe that what differentiates a psychotherapist from a paid friend is a mastery of the unconcious. I therefore include in my practice methods that tap into a person's inner knowledge of self: EMDR, Natural Processing, hypnosis, inner child work and Gestalt dreamwork. I see the unconcious as the last frontier, and we are pioneers!
If a person is not motivated to overturn their psychic rocks, I can use hypnosis to increase relaxation and improve functioning in a more direct manner. Persons seeking to purge a past trauma are well served by EMDR. Persons not sure can often find their way with Gestalt dreamwork.
I was given the Patients' Choice award for my Woodland practice in 2016, by Opencare. My clients love my sense of humor. Many of my clients get more out of therapy than they expected to. Featured in Laurie Cole Johnson's book Finally Winning. Fluent in Spanish. De veras!
