Are you feeling stuck? I work with individuals and couples to help you get "unstuck." My main specialty areas include relationship issues, depression, anxiety, and career concerns. Twenty years of counseling people from all walks of life has shown me that strength-based approaches to counseling can be very successful. We won't just look at what's going wrong....we'll also explore what you're doing well and build on that. Change is possible and should be expected, not just hoped for!

Thank you for taking the time to explore my approach to therapy. I have over 5 years of experience working with people to heal trauma. Traumatic events could include any experience a person perceived as threatening. My therapeutic modality is using a combination of Somatic Experiencing (SE) and Internal Relationship Focusing (IRF). I believe each client's body has the wisdom to guide us, client and therapist, through the resolution of trauma symptoms. I love to work with people who have spent considerable time in talk therapy and are now looking for alternative approaches.

Here for the "I DON'T KNOW's." So many patients & their families come into my office and say, "I just don't know what's going on with me/my loved one." And for me, that's a great place to start! It's my job, using assessments and up-to-date testing equipment to answer that question. I feel that it is difficult to know HOW to treat something if you don't know WHAT you are treating. Mental Health diagnoses often overlap and are confusing. Testing and therapy helps answer the "I don't know's". I do ALL of my own testing to limit errors and provide extremely comprehensive services for you and your loved ones.
