I have helped to treat issues including: marital/relationship issues, depression, anxiety, loss/bereavement, trauma, spirituality, existential concerns, physical/sexual/emotional abuse, self-esteem, personal growth, and anger.
Life poses many challenges and seasons for us all and most of the time we are able to take control of these situations in a healthy manner and move forward. However, sometimes we are unexpectedly troubled by our experiences and need help navigating beyond them. It is with these moments that therapy can offer insight into the cause, objective feedback, and treatment that will help you to move forward in a happy and healthy way.

Life can be messy and painful and beyond frustrating. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families to cope with a variety of challenging "life curve balls". No matter what you are facing and/or experiencing, there is a path that leads to understanding, growth, and healing. I have the utmost respect for my clients and their life journeys. When life circumstances provoke fear, anger, sadness, or suffering, we have an opportunity to face these challenges and ultimately become even better versions of ourselves.

Additionally, I treat individuals working to overcome obstacles or are just feeling "stuck." Immediate symptom reduction includes anxiety, depression, repeated patterns of behavior, obsessive & addictive behaviors, lack of focus, insecurities and confidence issues. For some clients conventional talk therapy is extremely effective. For others, a more aggressive approach which is what prompted my EMDR 5 Day Intensive program. This includes 5 consecutive days of on-going EMDR which continues to prove amazing results!

A lot of the issues that people face stem from repeating destructive patterns that lead to the same undesired outcomes. Such behavioral patterns were developed not by choice, but by necessity and are habits of life saving responses such as: chase, avoid, anger, anxiety, etc. The problem is that these responses create only an illusion of safety. In treatment we will identify your patterns and how to change them. Through a series of techniques, you can learn more effective ways to communicate confidently, break performance ceilings, and manage your life more effectively in relationships, on the job, and in and out of the public eye.
