I work in a collaborative/relational model with people who have had experiences that they have not had the opportunity to fully integrate yet. I use talk therapy, imagery, metaphor, hypnosis, EMDR, Positive Psychology, and Sensorimotor. Often clients report being disinterested in a formerly distressing topic after treatment.

"You are seeking support, so the process of change has already begun!... yet finding the 'right' therapist is important. While many clinicians have similar skills to address your concerns, it's actually their personality, life experience, and ability to relate to YOU that determines the success of your therapy. Profile pictures and professional statements are helpful, but the best way to determine if it's a "good fit" is to speak in person! I offer a free 30-minute consultation and am happy to connect with you and answer your questions today."
