I help individuals work on life issues tied to anxiety and depression, relationship difficulties, stress symptoms tied to childhood trauma, and families struggling with behavioral challenges. I teach communication skills that help with difficult relationships. These skills include helping my clients improve their power, voice, and contact with significant others. I employ many approaches in psychotherapy, including psychodynamic, gestalt, somatic experiencing (SE), accelerated experiential dynamic (AEDP), cognitive behavioral (CBT) and emotionally focused couples therapy (EFT).
For traumatic stress, I help individuals reduce symptoms of hyperarousal, panic, numbness, and pain in response to relationship and life challenges. With children, adolescents, and young adults, I combine relationship and calming skills to reduce ADHD and family discord and increase self-efficacy. I work with emotions, behaviors, cognitions and physiology.
I work with individuals or couples to explore how small changes in life attitudes and body stances can create new ways of thinking, feeling and being in the world and help find new solutions to life problems. This approach can help individuals contact their sense of joy and competency.
