About

Everybody has a story. Often our stories about ourselves and others are formulated when we are very young, trying to make sense of what is going on around us. These stories are often untrue. However, the negative narrative continues into adulthood. I use therapy approaches and techniques that help clients re-author a different story about themselves, others and events that might have occurred. When this healing process occurs, I am inspired as a witness to my clients' transformation as they take steps from struggle to healing. I have been in practice for over 30 years and am a provider on all private insurance plans.
I specialize working with depression, anxiety, co-dependency, trauma, parent-child conflict, substance abuse recovery, low-self-esteem, grief/loss, relationship problems and food addictions.
I have specific training in Brainspotting, EMDR, sandtray therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Tapas Acupuncture Technique (TAT). These approaches are proven effective in healing trauma, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship problems in a relatively quick, gentle and non-threatening process.
