I use: Internal Family Systems , Action Methods, Narrative Therapy, and CBT.
We all have the power to heal. Within each of us are emotional parts that guide our choices, lifestyle, and overall way of being. These parts are created through our experiences, generational burdens, or through childhood trauma. In our work together, I will guide you in looking inward, seeking to identify your unique parts, how they came to be, and eventually learn to embrace them. It is through this inward journey, that you begin to feel love, kindness, and whole. In my work as a Marriage and Family Therapist, my approach is unique to each client.

I am certified as an Internal Family Systems therapist and have extensive background in Gestalt Therapy, Focusing, Attachment and Trauma and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy.
Thank you for visiting my profile.. How do you know that the unknown person you are reaching will be able to be attuned to you in the ways that you need? It's hard to discern this just from reading someone's profile. Most of my clients feel they know me before they reach out because they are referred by current or former clients. I like that but what about individuals who don't have the benefit of that pre-service information? I usually suggest potential clients schedule a FREE meeting for this reason. I hope you will consider doing exactly that.

I am trained In DBT, EMDR, mindfulness, self-compassion, and Internal Family Systems ( IFS ), which are all evidence-based treatments with broad effectiveness.
I am a clinical psychologist with expertise in treating addictions, eating disorders, trauma, anxiety, depression, body image issues and difficulties with emotion regulation. I teach skills that increase life satisfaction, happiness, self-confidence, curiosity and gratitude. When life doesn't meet our expectations or painful situations occur, many people become self-critical and fight against emotions such as anger, loneliness, fear or shame. It is this lack of acceptance that increases suffering. Mindfulness and self-compassion involve responding with kindness to our own pain, thereby reducing suffering.

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist, that has been providing assistance to clients for over 14 years. I have worked with couples, families and individuals.

My clients are treated with the utmost respect at all times, as respect and trust must be present in order for progress to be made in a therapeutic relationship. I never judge any client situation. Rather, I help guide you through what presents itself as a difficult situation in your life.

When looking for a therapist it's important you find someone your feel comfortable with. Therapy can be a safe place to share and explore feelings or issues that challenge most of us at one time or another. I use a strength-based, family systems approach in helping individuals, couples, adolescents, children, and their families to reduce stress, improve communication and relationships. My goal with all clients is to build on existing strengths, and help find realistic solutions to problems and help achieve their goals. I empower them to achieve the changes they are looking for, in a safe comfortable and non judgmental environment.

I am a level 3 trained IFS therapist and believe that Internal Family Systems is the best way for me to help you understand what motivates you to act and react.
Therapy is the work of discovering why you have always approached your life in a certain way, even if that way keeps you stuck in unhappy patterns. It takes courage to change what feels uncomfortable. I know that; I can help.
