While EMDR may seem most appropriate for individuals who experience trauma, studies show that EMDR is beneficial for most mental health related needs.
I often tell people that each one of us carries around an invisible backpack filled with things that inform who we are. Our behaviors, beliefs, and values are all impacted by what we carry in our backpack. Sometimes our backpacks get too heavy. Things from our past may be too much to carry. As a therapist, I help people sort through what’s in the backpack. Together we look at what needs to go and what needs to stay. I work hard to have a welcoming and inviting space. The therapy session is a no judgment zone. I have experience working with individuals of every age, ability, and orientation.

I have experience and interest working with adults of any age and specialized knowledge helping individuals successfully navigate the difficulties and developmental challenges of late adolescence and early adulthood.
People often seek therapy following life changes where customary ways of coping are no longer sufficient to meet the demands of their world. I consider the focus of my work as a therapist the development of a safe and trusting relationship where I can help a person discuss difficult feelings as well as identify problematic interpersonal patterns that may be getting in the way of personal goals and successful relationships. I then work closely and collaboratively with my client to develop creative and effective ways to move past these roadblocks.

Living with difficulty and tension with your teen can be challenging and exhausting. Your world and theirs seem to collide on a daily basis. Seeing a counselor with your teen can cause a dynamic shift in your family. You’re dealing with guilt, anger, and frustration and fear the loss of the relationship you once knew. It’s common for teens to express their independence and autonomy, but this seems unhealthy. If your teen is acting out or having emotional problems, I help parents find innovative ways to help manage and rebuild loving relationships with them.
