About

Are you finding that your relationships are not working so well? It can be your relationship to yourself (just not feeling good about your self), your relationship to work (such as difficulties with co-workers or a boss), or your relationships with your family and/ or partner or friends. I believe that we are always striving to move towards personal growth and health. Our work is to remove these blocks with compassion and understanding so that you can achieve the changes that you want to make. My style is an interactive,individualized one with warmth, support, insight and humor.
Areas in which I have experience and success are: anxiety, depression, ADHD, (both with children and adults) relationship problems, trauma(using EMDR), drug and/or alcohol abuse, grief and loss for adults and children. I provide brief and long-term therapy using CBT as well family, child and couples therapy.
I have extensive training, experience, and success working with couples who want to learn more effective communication skills and to be happier in their relationships. With a background of training in bodywork, EMDR for trauma(Emdria Certified Therapist in EMDR), and more traditional psychodynamic therapies (looking at your childhood experiences) , I utilize an integrative approach.
