"Do you have a persistent feeling of "not good enough" that follows you from work to relationships to family? Does your mind race with thoughts about what you could have done better or how you disappointed someone? Other people might tell you that you work really hard, but your inner critic says it is not enough. You often feel self-critical and overwhelmed.Sometimes you are so paralyzed by anxiety that you can't finish work projects, make phone calls, or see friends. I can help you learn to manage anxiety, silence your inner critic, and feel good about yourself."

"Unresolved childhood issues provide recurring challenges in adulthood and may show up in the form of sadness, worry, relationship problems, substance abuse or poor self-esteem. For adults abused as children, complex trauma may leave one with panic, obsessive thoughts, self-harming behaviors, or mood disorders. Sometimes individuals are given many diagnoses and medications and end up in therapies that do not resolve their underlying issue. Dissociative processes go unrecognized in many therapies, resulting in treatment that may not resolve the underlying problem, leaving one symptomatic. In my professional experience most individuals change and grow through a successful therapeutic encounter."

"I have come to realization that we all need tools and guidance to navigate through life. As a therapist, I see myself as an ally who will help you to better understand your own choices and to cope with the changes in your life. As human beings, we value happiness, and we reject feeling sad, angry, nervous. As we experience these “negative feelings “, we become frustrated with ourselves, even angry. Nobody wants to be anything but happy. What if we were able to accept those “other feelings” for what they are...Therapy helps to better understand the moments in which changes seem overwhelming and unnecessary. Therapy helps to simply “sit with those feelings”, no judgement; just observing. I can help you to be in a place in your life where you can feel more comfortable with who you are, where you can become more aware of your capacities and more accepting of your own struggles. You are the expert on your own life. My job is only to assist you through therapy in your journey to self discover, acceptance and letting go....."

EMDR is a psychotherapy technique that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. Using the protocols and procedures learned in EMDR, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes."
