I have immediate availability and we return calls within 24 hours! Are you struggling to let go and heal from a traumatic experience? Do you feel stuck in sadness or overwhelmed with worry? Do things seem so stressful that it is hard to feel happiness? If any of these questions ring true for you, I have the expertise to guide you in overcoming these challenges. I utilize state of the art evidence-based treatment methods to directly work on your concerns and cut through the obstacles that are limiting your life. In my practice you will learn essential coping skills to apply in your life immediately to begin your transformation.
I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, trauma and relationship issues using research-based interventions from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Existential-Transpersonal and Psychodynamic psychotherapy. I work with couples and families utilizing well-researched, structured approaches from the Gottman Method and Emotion Focused Therapy.
I know how hard it can be to take this first step towards psychotherapy. It takes bringing all of yourself to the process. Therefore I work hard to understand your concerns through an expanded treatment perspective that promotes psychological growth and development while attending to your mind, body, and spirit.
