About

Stuff happens that affects our thoughts, emotions and behaviors. I believe your mind works fine. But a facet of your mind is causing you to respond or feel in ways that make life more difficult than it should be. This ongoing emotional distress or pain is not helping you be more effective in your life. I will help you address that 'facet of mind' to unplug the emotional pain and irrational thinking, so that your thoughts and energy are moving you towards what is valuable in your life.
I work with individuals who are dealing with a post Trauma reaction, be it a "big T" trauma incident, or a lot of "little t" hurtful experiences. And also with individuals experiencing panic attacks, high anxiety, affairs and relationship difficulties, depression, and low self-esteem. I additionally work with both adolescents and adults who are transgender.
I utilize methods that are effective for most clients in just 3-5 sessions. The benefits are persistent and provide clients with not only relief of symptoms from issues such as PTSD, but also a sense of resiliency as life poses new challenges.
