I guide the process of working through problems to enhance performance in activities of daily living in work, relationships, recreation & professional settings. Problem areas include difficulties with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, anger, grief & loss, women's issues, habit disorders, addictions recovery: drugs, alcohol, food; ACOA, family members affected by addiction, trauma: post-traumatic stress, rape, abuse (physical, emotional, sexual), dissociative disorders, relationships: marriage / domestic partner, parent-child, divorce/ separation, parenting. Also work with difficulties with sleep, relaxation, or underperforming.
30+ years experience & in private practice since 1992. Licensed: Oregon, Washington, Hawaii, with Masters certification in addictions, extensive training in relational dynamics, trauma, women's empowerment; consultation and supervision. In addition to insight oriented psychotherapy I am trained in a variety of treatment modalities such as EMDR and hypnosis.
I have trained in several modalities because each person is an individual. This is important because not everyone likes to talk a lot, some people are more comfortable with hypnosis while others are more comfortable with another tool. The variety of approaches allows me to tailor therapy to each person.
