About

I help adults and older adolescents who are struggling with stress, anxiety, OCD, self-doubt and self-sabotaging behaviors find relief and gain control. RELATIONSHIPS: I help individuals and couples struggling with arguments filled with criticism and defensiveness, learn the skills to move through the issues and get to workable solutions and feel more intimately connected. I draw from both life experience and extensive training for effective results-oriented sessions. With a direct and interactive approach, I work with clients to achieve both short-term impact as well as lifelong changes. I strive to use your time efficiently.
I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as well as Clinical Hypnosis. I also integrate Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Neuro-Linguistic Programing (NLP) techniques when appropriate to achieve results faster. With couples, I use the latest research based methods of communication, conflict resolution, attachment theory and trust building.
I was an active duty Army officer for 23 years and continue to work with military members. Together we will set an agenda, goals, and strategies to help you quickly achieve your goals. As a result, sometimes therapy can be quite brief, although at other times we may need more time. I teach skills for individuals and couples to use to maintain results.
