"You are uncomfortable - Something is bothering you. You need resolution about an issue, event, experience or relationship. I work in a collaborative/relational model with people who have had experiences that they have not fully integrated yet. I use talk therapy, imagery, metaphor, hypnosis, EMDR, Positive Psychology, and Sensorimotor. Often clients report being disinterested in a formerly distressing topic after treatment. I'm comfortable working many types of issues including trauma, PTSD, ACA, sexual abuse, panic attacks or phobias, anxiety or depression, losses or relationship breakups, people with mysterious physical ailments."

"SOMETIMES LIFE CAN SEEM TOUGHER THAN WE ARE. Sometimes life can throw mountains before us that we feel incapable of climbing. Sometimes we might not feel strong enough, smart enough, old enough, or young enough to handle life’s challenges on our own. Births, deaths, ending of relationships, losing jobs, changing careers, moving to a new city, coming of age, retirement; all present unique challenges and, at times, can feel overwhelming. On top of all that you may also be struggling with an addiction or other serious mental illness. Often times we just need another person to talk to as we feel our way out of the darkness. "

"As I see it, the primary role of a counselor is to serve as a mirror to help reveal what the client hasn't yet been able to see-especially those patterns of relating to self, others, and the environment that might be causing suffering. At the same time, the counselor is there to reflect, affirm, and strengthen the client's unique gifts and talents.One of the biggest impediments to healing, growth, and creativity is shame. To help clients move through this debilitating emotion, I use a combination of mindfulness, body awareness, and other healing modalities."
