It am particularly gratified to be offering EMDR for individuals suffering from Post Traumatic Stress.
Anxiety, Depression and Substance Abuse have reached epidemic proportions in today's world. They have become a way of life for many, causing undue anguish and pain, and jeopardizing the well-being of millions as well as the significant relationships in their lives. For over 25 years I have been helping people find a way back to themselves and on a path to living healthier and happier lives. It would be an honor to help you.

People also seek therapy to process a trauma, support in making difficult decisions, and a space to explore and grow as individuals.
As a therapist, I am passionate about walking alongside folks as they reveal their truths and vulnerabilities to themselves. I believe, and have witnessed that people are capable of long standing change with knowledge, support, and connection, and that therapy is a great place for that. You can learn new ways to manage life stressors, feel safe, gain confidence, and live a more joyful and purposeful life. I use cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, and strength-based techniques, while never ignoring the human element and connection where the real change happens.

I have worked with youth, individuals and families in a variety of settings from outpatient, day treatment programs, juvenile hall to Cuesta College Campus.
The approach I take as a therapist draws from both cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness practices. In short, people learn how to relate to their thoughts differently and as a result additionally gain insight, problem solving skills, communication skills, increased sense of control over feeling states and improved relationships. Through processes such as examination of your perceptions and beliefs, increasing your ability to be present in the here and now, exploration of your values, development of new skills and resolution of previous trauma, I've had the privilege of witnessing my clients experience symptom reduction and profound change.
