As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I offer a therapeutic place for people interested in exploring how the challenges or “symptoms” you are experiencing are preventing you from being your best self. My foundational training as a Clinical Social Worker has been enhanced with advanced trauma training including EMDR , relational / attachment work as a Circle of Security Parent Facilitator, Buddhist psychology and mindfulness. Several modalities inform my practice including somatic healing, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and a relational approach leading to a greater sense of feeling grounded and whole.

This means that I rely upon various psycho-therapeutic methods and evidence-based models that are combined to create a personalized approach to our work together.

During difficult times, we can feel overwhelmed and stuck, unable to break ineffective or even destructive cycles. Getting “unstuck” involves incorporating new skills and concepts, such as psychological flexibility, self-awareness, assertive communication skills, mindfulness, effective coping strategies, insight, decision making skills, and values clarity.

CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING REFERRALS- Life is filled with moments of great joy, profound sorrow, and everything in between; at times navigating the ups and downs can be challenging. Often people get stuck in familiar patterns that aren't productive. One of the benefits of therapy is having an objective, non-judgmental ally to assist you through the change process. Therapy is interactive and collaborative. As a therapist, my goal is to help my clients recognize and utilize the strengths they already possess to create the change they seek in their lives. "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly."

(At this time I am taking new clients via telehealth or by phone. ) Each one of us has our own personal story, interwoven with the joys and sadness of life. Every client I work with I believe walks through my door so that together we can work on navigating issues, gaining skills and understanding of what they wish to change in their lives. Sometimes it is a subtle change one is looking for, or at other times it is a life changing event that propels us to seek help. Whatever the reason I am here to help people find the change they seek.

The choice to begin therapy is often laden with emotions and questions. From this initial decision process to later stages, I bring warmth and a strong skill set to every person and couple I treat. I strive to provide an accepting environment to explore your problems and gradually work through them, finding a stronger sense of self. I focus on connecting current problems to old patterns, finding meaning in symptoms and identifying realistic approaches to change. The approach I use is highly collaborative and will be tailored to suit your needs.

Additionally, as an EMDR -trained therapist, I use EMDR to reprocess a client's maladaptive cognitions so that they become healthy and adaptive through gentle guided eye movement.
Please note that my practice is full at this time. I primarily work with adults and young adults suffering from depression, anxiety, and/or addiction, in addition to those struggling with relational/communication issues. I take a highly personal, strengths-based, positive approach tailored to each client's individual needs. In addition to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which directly targets negative thoughts, I use an acceptance-based approach by encouraging clients to accept, rather than negate, current thoughts patterns so that clients can move toward their values and start living meaningful and productive lives.

As we explore, we will supplement traditional therapy with techniques such as mindfulness, imagery, aromatherapy, breath work, sound, and various yoga practices, in addition to EMDR .
I believe that each of us already possesses the ability to live a happy and fulfilling life. With greater self-understanding, we can discover and break through barriers that hold us back, find new perspectives, and achieve new goals. I work with people who are experiencing specific challenges--such as trauma or relationship issues--as well as those who suffer from anxiety, depression, feel "stuck in a rut" or are simply interested in exploring new ways to find more fulfillment in their lives. Whatever your goal, we can work together to achieve balance and lasting change.

As an EMDR and trauma therapist I believe that we all respond differently to stressors, whether they take us by surprise or whether we see them coming.
You didn’t expect life to look like this. You may be feeling overwhelmed, disillusioned, or like your life is never going to change. You might feel disconnected from your friends, family, and maybe even yourself. But you don’t want to live your life this way anymore. You’re no longer happy with the status quo. Most of all, you’re ready to feel free and regain control of your life. Therapy can help you manage the stress in your life and create the life you want, whatever that may look like.

EMDR , MBSR, and yoga certification).
*What is Therapeutic* is for you to define, and RE-define – and is not limited to sit-downs to "discuss problems." In its essence the word problem means "question," so just an openness-to-inquiry can be a healing pathway. Our worlds (and hopefully we) are constantly changing yet it's rare that we're overtly made ready to move, or flow, with these outer/inner shifts. We now know that a flexible mind serves our ability to function well, and that resilience and compassion are **skills** to be cultivated. Good counsel can help you dig deeply into your questions, your habitual patterns and your strengths to allow you more "room" to live.

Since 1994 we have integrated Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing ( EMDR ) into our practice.
Hello! We believe that when people come to therapy.they want to feel better, and they don't want to face problems alone. Revealing ourselves and/or coming out from behind problems in order to begin the process of discovery and self knowledge is not easy. It helps to have an objective partner - one who can work with you, help you clarity your thinking, come to terms with painful issues, provide support as you resolve problems and begin to move towards more satisfying life experiences.

With the Systems approach of MFT as well as the latest in EMDR and Mindfulness, all built on top of a grounding in client-centered thinking, I am here to help you sort out the options as you make the decisions that are critical in your life.
When life seems overwhelming or that old anguish that you had hoped to bury forever just keeps coming back, it's possible to learn how to respond to that discomfort in a practical, effective way, once and for all. Sometimes having a new set of ears -- attached to a logical mind and a caring heart -- is just the strategy needed. When you are tired of going it alone or of therapists who don't give useful feedback, when you are ready to take responsibility for your own happiness, please call. I am happy to be on your team.

EMDR Therapists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.

If you're looking for EMDR therapy in Essex or for an Essex EMDR therapist these professionals provide EMDR therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and EMDR treatment. They include EMDR therapists, EMDR psychologists, EMDR psychotherapists, and EMDR counselors.
