Clients come to me with many different issues: from parenting to personal and from relationships to reentering the work force. You may be experiencing concerns in these facets of your life or you may be struggling with the particular demands of your own life. But the foundation of my practice is that you can most effectively face and overcome your challenges in a nonjudgmental environment where you can build a trusting and respectful relationship with your therapist. By building that connection, you can begin reconnecting with those you love and moving your own life forward.

Sometimes people seek treatment knowing what is causing them distress, for example, anxiety and depression, work stress or relationship difficulty including parenting stress. Other times people have been in traditional talk therapy and have made improvement in their lives but still feel stuck in one area or another. For chronic issues and addictive behaviors, clients benefit most from trauma based treatments, like EMDR. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the distress and symptoms associated with troubling life experiences.
