About

Trauma can broadly be defined as any event or situation that has a lasting negative impact. EMDR is an highly effective form of psychotherapy which harnesses all we know about human attachment and neurobiology to heal trauma and to reprocess disturbing life experiences. Treatment focuses on past experiences as the basis for clinical complaints; current situations that trigger dysfunctional emotions, beliefs, and sensations; and positive experiences needed to enhance future adaptive behaviors and emotional health. Focused protocols are used, and no homework or detailed descriptions of the events are required.
I believe in the resiliency of human beings and in our immense capacity for change. Further, I believe that we are hard wired towards relatedness, health, and fulfillment. An attuned, well trained clinician can be a powerful vehicle for change and can help facilitate emotional resolution and healing.
My availability constantly fluctuates. The best way to reach out - and to determine whether I'm accepting new clients is to call. I update my voicemail greeting with availability information regularly.
